Fruit Snacks Market Outlook (2023 to 2033)

Currently, worldwide fruit snack consumption amounts to a market valuation of US$ 5.9 billion and is projected to increase at 7.8% CAGR from 2023 to 2033. The global fruit snacks market is forecasted to reach a value of US$ 12.5 billion by the end of 2033.

The advent of chronic diseases and rising mortality rates due to these diseases have resulted in the rising adoption of healthy lifestyle choices that promote the consumption of healthy foods and snacks. Fruits have always been seen as a healthy choice as the good old quote states, “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away”. Snack food providers are trying to capitalize on the healthy nature of fruits by creating snacks that utilize fruits for their production and fulfil the demand for healthy snack foods.

Increasing awareness regarding the benefits associated with the consumption of vitamins, minerals, and proteins in a healthy diet is a prime factor that is projected to bolster demand for fruit snacks across the forecast period. The increasing popularity of preventive healthcare and rising recognition of the role of immunity in disease prevention are other aspects that could uplift the shipments of fruit snacks over the next ten years.

Growing food and beverages industry, changing consumer preferences, rapid urbanization and globalization, high incidence of chronic diseases, rising awareness regarding ill effects associated with artificial food ingredients, and willingness of consumers to spend extra on healthier food products are other prospects that could potentially boost fruit snacks sales in the future. Dried apple slices, fruit strips, coconut chips, dried mango slices, crispy fruit snacks, fruit jerky, and pure fruit bars, are expected to witness a notable hike in demand going forward.

The high prevalence of lifestyle disorders such as diabetes and obesity is also expected to have a positive impact on the overall market development throughout the forecast period. Adoption of a sedentary lifestyle and low physical activity are also expected to promote fruit snack consumption through 2033.

On the contrary, misconceptions regarding the consumption of processed fruit and food items are anticipated to have a restraining effect on the overall market evolution over the next ten years. Several initiatives promoting healthy eating habits and the incorporation of fruits in consumer diets are being launched by governments and non-profit organizations, which are also expected to open up new opportunities for fruit snack vendors in the long run.
