Americas: largest market for potato chips
The potato chips market in the Americas is growing steadily. The acceptance of quick meals such as burgers and sandwiches is one of the major factors driving the market in the Americas. Chips are widely accepted and consumed as a favorite combination with burgers and sandwiches. Also, the busy lifestyle of people leads to the demand for snacks such as potato chips in the region. Supermarkets and hypermarkets accounted for 77% of the total sales of potato chips in the US in 2015.
Some potato chips are available in flavors unique to Canada, such as ketchup and “all-dressed” flavors. Canadian consumers prefer BBQ-flavored hickory sticks and potato chips. One of the popular brands and flavors launched in 2015 is Ruffles all-dressed flavor, which has garnered consumer interest in the Americas for its unique Canadian flavor. In April 2014, Lay's Canada announced the return of its Do Us a Flavour contest, which invites fans across the country to submit their flavor ideas to be the next great potato chip flavor. “The rising number of flavors and increasing demand for quick snacks are expected to contribute to the market demand during the forecast period,” says Arushi Thakur, one of Technavio’s industry experts for research on food sector.

India, China, and South Korea are the major contributors to the growth of the market in APAC. An increase in disposable income and busy lifestyle are the two factors driving the market in APAC. “In addition, the potato chips market in APAC has benefited from localization of flavors in Japan as consumers prefer buying local flavors available in their country. However, compared to cookies and candy, Chinese still consume a relatively small amount of potato chips. Therefore, there is huge potential for market growth in China,” states Arushi.
