Frozen Food Market to Reach USD278.47bn

The market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2022 to 2030.

The initiative was taken due to the growing inclination for the abovementioned products among consumers. According to ‘The Grocer’ in April 2020, demand for frozen food spiked up to 263% in March, the same year.

The ready meals segment held the largest revenue share in 2021 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period.

These trends are expected to promote the scope of these products and thus, in turn, will fuel the growth of the frozen food industry.
