LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global dried processed food market report. This research report also lists 14 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The dried processed food market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.43% during the forecast period. Rise in urbanization along with the hectic lifestyles of consumers and growing number of working women has resulted in an increasing number of consumers preferring dried food products owing to increasing desire for convenience instead of preparing food from scratch at home. Around 54% of the world’s total population was living in urban areas in 2014. It is anticipated that by 2050, about two-third of the world’s total population will be residing in urban areas.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global dried processed food market is subject to rapidly changing consumer demands both at regional and international level. Manufacturer performance in the market is affected by the changing consumer spending pattern and their annual household income. It is also affected by local consumer tastes and demographic trends.

The global dried processed food market is highly dispersed and fragmented because of the presence of numerous small and large players both at regional and international level. The market is such that product differentiation plays a significant role in boosting sales,” says Arushi Thakur, an industry expert in food from Technavio.

Product assortment and distribution are the two major aspects for market penetration of dried processed food. Placing products in the right market place with a strong distribution network is critical for the food manufacturers. Thus, manufacturers need to have thorough knowledge about the market culture, dynamics, the region's retail landscape, and taste preferences and purchasing habits of the consumers while launching any new product in a market.
