Drivers & Restraints:

Growing Vegan Population to Augment Market Growth

Soup is considered to be one of the healthiest foods that can be digested easily. They are available in a variety of flavors and combinations. The growing population is adopting vegetarianism and veganism to minimize animal cruelty and their carbon footprint. This has created new opportunities, as the demand for healthy vegetable soups is constantly rising. Vegan Society Organization estimates that approximately 25% of the world population will account for vegan meat replacement consumption by 2040.
New product launches are expected to fuel the market growth. The changing preferences towards the consumption of healthy and instant food products are encouraging manufacturers to launch new varieties and flavors. For instance, the new RTD chilled soups range by Sonoma Brands in June 2018 created a spur in market growth due to its zero sodium content.

However, the rising consciousness regarding the food’s contents is expected to hinder the market growth. The health problems caused by the added preservatives and consistent consumption of corn starch and salt are also likely to impede the market growth.

Regional Insights:

Europe’s Enormous Consumer Base to Boost Market Growth

A large consumer base present in Europe is expected to significantly boost the market growth in Europe. Countries like Russia and the U.K. are top consumers of soup. The relatively high consumption of processed food in these countries, compared to other countries, is expected to promote market growth. Constant product launches are expected to boost dehydrated soups consumption in the region.

The constantly growing working population and the work from home regime propelled by the global pandemic are expected to increase Europe’s market growth. The aforementioned factors will further boost the market in Europe during the forecast period.
An increasingly busy lifestyle and a presence of a large consumer base are anticipated to help North America rank second in market growth. With the U.S. as the largest regional consumer, the soup market share is expected to amplify consistently.

The rising population in countries like India and China is expected to augment market growth in Asia Pacific. Japan constitutes the second-largest marketplace globally. Consumption of broths and soups in the daily diet in Japan is expected to considerably stimulate regional growth.

Competitive Landscape:

The global soup market is highly competitive and comprises numerous regional and international players. These players adopt various strategies like launching new products through continuous research and development for innovative flavors and ingredients.
