Sales Analysis of Frozen Eggs from 2016 to 2020 Vs Market Outlook for 2021 to 2031
In parallel to the ever-evolving landscape of the food & beverage businesses, consumers are also exhibiting changes for their proclivity towards frozen products. In the foreseeable future, a large consumer base is anticipated to be drawn towards less perishable egg-based products rather than fresh eggs.
Improper storage options may factor in the declining demand for freshly egg products. Moreover, frozen egg products providing nutritional value and taste equivalent to freshly egg goods will also contribute to this change in consumer preference.
Top egg producers are showing high interest in frozen eggs, considering how these products can incur significant value addition between the farm gate and retail stores. Frozen processing of eggs and other egg-based products such as frozen whole eggs, frozen egg whites, and frozen egg yolks holds the potential to translate larger profit shares for these producers.
Longer shelf life of frozen egg products effectively lowers the impact of issues related to the transport of egg products to sales channels. As a result, changes in transport schedules and delayed delivery to sales outlets cannot impede the quality of frozen egg products.
Furthermore, low perishability continues to be a key characteristic of frozen egg products, which helps them gain popularity as shelf-stable foods available in retail chains.
The global frozen egg market is predicted to increase steadily at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2021 to 2031 as compared to a CAGR of 5.4% from 2016 and 2020, according to Fact.MR.
Why is Demand for Frozen Eggs in Institutional Food Service on the Rise?
Frozen egg products are witnessing considerable uptake across catering businesses. Private cafeterias in organizations such as schools, hospitals, and commercial businesses are witnessing how frozen egg products can replace daily meals.
Rising preference of consumers towards foods with low preparation time and quick serving has limited the need for fresh egg items in institutional food services. Concurrently, demand for frozen egg products in institutional food services has inflated, particularly among working professionals who predominantly demand for frozen eggs, particularly frozen egg whites.
