DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Extruded Snack Food Market - Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017 - 2022" report to their offering.
The global extruded snack food market reached a value of around US$ 50 Billion in 2016, growing at a CAGR of around 3% during 2009-2016.
Extruded snack foods are made by the extrusion of various ingredients such as corn, tapioca, oats, potatoes, wheat, etc. Some of the most prevalent extruded snack foods include breakfast cereals, corn curls, onion rings, pasta, fish paste, jelly beans, macaroni, processed cheese, breads, etc.
The extrusion process offers the ability to choose the ingredients and the ways of processing them. Manufacturers use this in order to produce healthier snacks with varied ingredients. Moreover, the extrusion process eliminates some of the naturally occurring toxins and reduces the micro-organisms present in the final product, thereby making them safer for consumption.
Despite reaching maturity levels in the developed markets, the demand for extruded snack foods is expected to increase in the emerging markets over the forecast period driven by a number of growth inducing factors. As a result of the rising urbanisation, a vast majority of population lives a fast-paced lifestyle. Since the long working hours make it difficult for most people to have proper meals, they resort to ready-to-eat food products such as extruded snack foods. Growing number of young population and increasing disposable income in the emerging regions are also expected to drive the demand for extruded snack foods.
Some of the major manufacturers include Nestlé, Kellogg's, Diamond, General Mills, PepsiCo, Kraft Foods, etc.
