Need a report that reflects how COVID-19 has impacted this market and its growth?
The food spread market is projected to register a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
The market was positively impacted by COVID-19 in 2020. The global pandemic has shown an impact on the proper functioning of the food spread industry in various regions. The consumption of nutritious and healthy spreads, which are free from additives and preservatives, gluten, and trans-fat, increased, as consumers were becoming health conscious and were preferring natural or low-sugar and sugar-free spreads.
Sweet spreads are an integral part of every breakfast, and this has led to their steady growth. The rising health consciousness among consumers has given way to new low-calorie spreads. Food spreads comprise a variety of products, such as jams, jellies, fruit and nut-based spreads, honey, syrups, and chocolate-based spreads.
The United States is one of the largest consumers of sweet spreads, and Asia-Pacific, by virtue of its sheer population, is second in terms of the consumer base. A consumer shift has been observed in the past few years of the traditional meal-to-snack food, which is negatively affecting the food spread market, thereby restraining its growth.
