India Frozen Food Market

Frozen Food - Overview

Food items that have been frozen and kept at a low temperature for a long time are known as frozen food. The frozen food market has everything from ready-to-eat foods, desserts, and snacks, to ready meals, soup, vegetables, fruits, fish, meat, and seafood. Frozen foods are also free from preservatives since microorganisms cannot grow on them because the temperature of the food is below -9.5 °C (15 °F), which prevents food spoilage.

India Frozen Food Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Working-Class Population in India

The frozen food business has gradually risen, notably in ready meals, frozen meat, on-the-go food, and other categories, due to the hectic lives of millennials and the booming working population. Frozen meals have become increasingly popular in cities as they need less time and effort to prepare than fresh produce. In addition, the rise in disposable income of many households, along with the impulsive buying habit among consumers, has increased frozen food consumption.

Expanding Online Sales Channels for Frozen Food

Online buying is one of the newest consumer trends among Indian buyers. The rise of the frozen food sector has been spurred by the digitization of the retail industry. The emergence of new applications, greater smartphone usage, and unfettered internet access have made frozen food purchases easier and more convenient for consumers. Furthermore, as a result of the pandemic's outbreak and the risk of virus infection when walking outside, people are increasingly turning to online shopping for frozen foods.

Restraints

High Inclination of Indian Consumers Towards Fresh and Organic Food Products

The general Indian population considers frozen food to be a poor substitute for fresh meals. Food that has been preserved for more than a year is thought to have lost all of its nutritious value. While nutrients like vitamin C and folate can degrade as a result of temperature fluctuations, nutrients in frozen veggies are preserved by keeping them at a continuous low temperature or below the freezing point. This frozen food myth may be dispelled by enhancing customer awareness of the quality of frozen meals.

Impact of COVID-19 on India Frozen Food Market

The demand for frozen food witnessed significant growth post the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. During the lockdown, frozen meals were the most practical and cost-effective option for families. Frozen food products have a longer shelf life than fresh produce, allowing people to avoid making regular journeys to the shop and becoming infected with the virus. Furthermore, easy availability of frozen food through online channels during the lockdown period and shortage of stocks in the offline stores also act as a major driving factor for the market growth.

India Frozen Food Market - By Product Type

Based on product type, India frozen food market is segmented into fruits & vegetables, frozen dairy products, bakery products, meat & seafood products, convenience foods & ready meals, and others. The convenience foods and ready meals segment account for the largest market share. These kinds of frozen-ready meals are nutrient-dense and delicious. They also have a much longer shelf life, making them handier to use, which is driving its market growth.

India Frozen Food Market - By Distribution Channel

Based on the distribution channel, India frozen food market is segmented into offline and online channels. The offline distribution channel holds the largest share in the market. The rise of offline distribution channels is fueled by the availability of ideal freezing and temperature-controlled facilities in convenience shops and supermarkets. As a result of national lockdowns established during the coronavirus epidemic and the fear of being exposed to the fatal virus while going out, many customers have rushed to online platforms to purchase frozen goods. Due to this, the online segment is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
