Technavio Announces Top Five Vendors in the Global Canned Food Market from 2016 to 2020

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global canned food market report. This research report also lists 13 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The canned food industry is subject to rapidly changing consumer demands and preferences. Vendor performance in the global canned food market can be affected by changing consumer spending patterns. It may also be affected by consumer tastes, demographic trends, and regional, national, and local economic conditions. The changing economic conditions are affecting customers’ living standards and can also affect vendors' businesses. The market is highly fragmented because of the presence of numerous small and large vendors. The vendors in the market compete on the basis of many factors such as price, quality, innovation, service, reputation, and promotion.

The increase in vendor competition may lead to vendors reducing their prices, which could negatively affect vendor margins and market growth. The current market includes companies of varying sizes; some are also more specialized than others with respect to particular commodities. Some companies also have larger financial resources than other companies.

According to Vijay Sarathi, a lead analyst at Technavio for food, “Intense competition among vendors, coupled with rapid technological changes, constitutes significant risk factors to vendor operations. Therefore, to survive and succeed in this competitive environment, it becomes imperative for vendors in the market to distinguish their product and service offerings through a clear and unique value proposition.”
