Sweet Potato Products Market Segment Analysis-By Application
The Sweet Potato Products Market based on the application type can be further segmented into food and beverages, sweeteners, and animal feeds. The food and beverages segment held the largest share in 2021. The growth is owing to rising applications and demand for sweet potato products. Globalization has made RTE products like dried chips a renowned snack option throughout the globe. According to a report, around 86% of the US and 84% of Great Britain's population consumes chips. On another hand, the availability of innovative flavors has its fruitful contribution in intensifying the overall demand for such products. Moreover, the food and beverages segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment with a CAGR of 5.6% over the forecast period 2022-2027. This growth is owing to a broadening demand for natural sweeteners in confectionery items and other energy drinks. Moreover, as western influence is growing in middle- and lower-income countries, the taste and preferences of people are changing. Consequently, the demand for products such as snack pellets, pectin, and others is enlarging. Moreover, the low-fat nature of sweet potatoes is alluring to several obese consumers as they don’t pose any detriment to health.
Sweet Potato Products Market Segment Analysis-By Distribution Channel
The Sweet Potato Products Market based on distribution channels can be further segmented into offline platforms (=hypermarkets/supermarkets, convenience stores, smaller retail shops, and others), and online platforms. The offline segment held the largest share in 2021. The growth is owing to the far-reaching presence of retail outlets in urban and pastoral areas. According to a report, 12-13% of sales in the U.S. happen through online mediums whereas, more than 90% occurs offline as of 2021. The majority of consumers still believe that offline channels are much better as compared to online as they extend security while browsing. On another hand, due to eventful lives, busy shoppers love to shop in bulk at supermarkets. Nevertheless, the offline segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing with a CAGR of 6.0% over the forecast period 2022-2027. The growth is owing to the trust of people on offline platforms. There is no doubt about it that online platforms are gaining relevant market share but still, it is quite low. It will take more than 10-12 years for online options to flourish and function properly in pastoral areas. More than 3 billion people still live in the countryside as of 2021. Out of which majority of them are deprived of online shopping facilities.
Sweet Potato Products Market Segment Analysis-By Geography
The Sweet Potato Products Market based on Geography can be further segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and the Rest of the World. North America held the largest share with 38% of the overall market in 2021. The growth in this segment is owing to the massive consumption of chips in North American countries. More than 80% of the total American population consumes crisps. According to a national consumer survey (NHCS), around 284.3 million residents consumed chips in 2020. On another hand, a state-of-the-art network of distribution channels acts as a potent trigger and encourages people to make such purchases. Europe stands second highest in terms of total sweet potato product consumption with GB and France being the leading players. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing segment over the forecast period 2022-2027. This growth is owing to factors such as the presence of countries with the largest consumption of sweet potatoes. According to a report, around 70-80% of sweet potato world supply comes from China only. Even though the consumption in China is less compared to the U.S. and other European nations, around 55-60% of total production is used as animal feeds in China. But with growing western influence in other countries like India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Japan, and others the overall consumption is anticipated to rise. On the other hand, enlarging the disposable income of residents is another prominent reason behind the growth of the respective market in this segment.
