Research and Markets: UK Snack Foods Market Report 2014-2018

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/n9twrs/snack_foods) has announced the addition of the "Snack Foods Market Report 2014" report to their offering.

This Market Report provides in-depth analysis of the snack foods industry in the UK. In 2013, the retail market for bagged, savoury snacks expanded by 5.8%, representing a continuation of this market's impressive year-on-year growth.

The increasing value of total retail sales in this market is spread across three market sectors, all of which performed strongly in 2013. Potato crisps remain the most popular savoury snack in the UK, with consumption heavily ingrained in many Britons' diets. Yet the potato crisps sector grew at a slower rate than either of the other two sectors; extensive use of in-store promotions based on the highly saturated nature of the sector has restricted value growth, as has the increasing consumer demand for variety.

The latter has fuelled sales in the other savoury snacks sector, which is the largest category in this market and grew by the greatest extent in 2013. Although no single product in this sector is as popular as potato crisps in the UK, the combined sales value of popular new products, such as gourmet popcorn, means that the value of this sector represents almost half of total market value. The final market sector is also the smallest, but nevertheless the value of the snack nuts sector increased substantially in 2013.

The popularity of savoury snacks in the UK ensures that new trends regularly emerge. This provides manufacturers with new avenues for growth in an extremely competitive marketplace. When combined with the highly established level of brand awareness and loyalty, there are strong foundations for further growth in this market. As such, this report forecasts impressive growth of 21.2% over the 5-years between 2014 and 2018.
