Ready-To-Eat Market Introduction & Overview

Ready-to-eat is food intended for direct human consumption and may involve minimum or no cooking. It benefits consumers with attributes focused on time-saving, convenience, being stress-free, and value-for-money. It is one of the most dynamic and largest sectors in the food industry.

The global ready-to-eat market is mainly driven by an improving lifestyle of consumers and rapid urbanization coupled with rising employment opportunities. A rise in disposable incomes of the working class is propelling the demand for such foods, further boosting market growth.

Moreover, ready-to-eat foods come handy for backpackers or hikers who often travel to remote areas. Also, such foods are popular among people living in hostels or shared apartments as it is convenient for them to consume healthy food without actually having to cook the food, which is positively impacting the market growth. However, ready-to-eat food when consumed in excess or for prolonged periods, may result in serious health complications due to the harmful preservatives and chemicals used in them to increase the shelf life, color, texture, and flavor. This may restrain market growth to a certain extent.
