Emergency Food Market Overview

Emergency Food Market size is estimated to reach $6.4 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 2.3% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Emergency food is a product that is stored and consumed in case of an emergency. In a world where tragedies can strike without warning, there's a chance that food supplies will be cut off. At that critical juncture, emergency food can keep any person alive until aid arrives or the routes to a person's food source are cleared. Cooking and refrigeration may or may not be required for emergency food. Foods like canned juice, infant food, non-perishable pasteurized milk, dry cereals, and refrigerated foods are partaken and conserved for unforeseen circumstances or in the event of an emergency. Emergency food supplies are useful not only in an emergency but also for an assortment of other demographic groups. Open or unopened packages of luncheon meat can be frozen for one to two months, according to a paper released by Food Safety Government. The storage needs for dairy products are diverse. Bread has a three to five-day shelf life when stored at 70°F ambient temperature. Emergency food can be kept chilled and reheated quickly, or it can be served hot. It is the best option for long-term storage, emergency situations, and outdoor activities like hiking and camping.

The Emergency Food Market is expected to be driven by rising customer demand for healthy and quick on-the-go food products. Owing to the altering perception of the present COVID-19 issue, consumer lifestyles, and consumption habits, the need for goods with a long shelf life, such as dry cereals, is expected to accelerate the growth of the Emergency Food Industry during the forecast period 2022-2027.

Emergency Food Market Segment Analysis – By Product Type

The Emergency Food Market based on product type can be further segmented into Ready to Eat Meals, Protein or Fruit Bars, Dry Cereals or Granola, Peanut Butter, Dried Fruit, Canned juice, Non-perishable Pasteurized Milk, and Infant Food. The Non-Perishable Pasteurized Milk segment held the largest market share in 2021. This growth is mainly attributed to the fact that product penetration of different dairy products including pasteurized milk is considerably high when compared to other products across the world. It also has a longer shelf life than other emergency supplies and is simple to distribute. The strong demand from the commercial and retail sectors is further propelling the growth of the Non-Perishable Pasteurized Milk segment.

However, the Protein or Fruit Bars segment is estimated to grow with the fastest CAGR of 3.2% during the forecast period 2022-2027 owing to the extensive accessibility of the product in numerous geographies and the soaring demand for protein or fruit bars from the defense sector. As the consumers’ interest in products that support the overall maintenance of health and wellness increased, the ambiguous situation across the world urged them to increase their nutritional intake and consume safer and healthier foods hence, the demand for protein bars is further boosted. 

Emergency Food Market Segment Analysis – By Sales Channel

The Emergency Food Market based on product type can be further segmented into E-Commerce Channel and Offline Channel - Hypermarket & Supermarket, Convenience Stores, and Others. The Offline Channel segment held the largest market share in 2021 owing to the availability of a variety of options under one roof. People prefer to purchase and stock emergency food to satisfy their fundamental needs in crisis-like situations, due to the increasing incidence of disasters every year. For emergency response, a worldwide organization such as UNICEF purchases ready-to-use therapeutic food (RTUTF). UNICEF supplies around 75% of global RUTF demand, averaging 49,000 metric tonnes (MT) per year through offline stores, hence enhancing the segment growth.

However, E-Commerce Channel is estimated to grow with the fastest CAGR of 3.7% during the forecast period 2022-2027 owing to recent calamities such as the avian influenza pandemic, COVID 19 pandemic, and the Russia-Ukraine war, which are expected to boost online demand for emergency food and drive the emergency food market. For instance, in a covid pandemic, from November 2019 to November 2021, Walmart’s online sales grew by 87%, while Amazon experienced a 200% increase in its profit according to ‘Think Global Health Organisation’. As per ‘Digital Commerce 360’, the coronavirus pandemic adds $219 billion to US e-commerce sales in the year 2020-2021.

Emergency Food Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

The Emergency Food Market based on geography can be further segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and Rest of the World. North America (Emergency Food Market) held the largest share with 42% of the overall market in 2021. The growth of this region is owing to the fact that North American regions like the U.S. have suffered significant losses as a result of climate variations. Natural disasters in the region, like floods, storms, and others, have raised spending on food and other resources. The surging variables like new releases and launches, rising prerequisites, growing end-user expectations, accessible product availability, and rising consumer awareness are further propelling the growth of the Emergency Food Market during the forecast period 2022-2027.

Furthermore, the Asia Pacific region is estimated to be the region with the fastest CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period 2022-2027. This growth is owing to factors like the rising demand for ready-to-eat meals and product innovation, as well as rising disaster management spending in the Asia-Pacific region. The greater expenditure and the expansion of market players in the rural sector of the region are all promoting the regional market growth. The superior R&D to establish novel kinds of Emergency Foods is further fuelling the growth of the Emergency Food Market in the Asia-Pacific region.

Emergency Food Market Drivers

Growing Demand For Emergency Food In The Army Sector Is Fuelling The Growth Of The Emergency Food Market

As reported on bluestarfam, in the 2019 Military Family Lifestyle Survey, 7% of military family respondents and 12% of veteran family respondents specified that someone in their household encountered food insecurity in the past year. Furthermore, 9% of military family respondents and 18% of veteran family respondents specified that someone in their household had sought emergency food assistance by way of a food bank, food pantry, or charitable organization. As per FAO, between 720 to 821 million people faced hunger in 2020. In the military and defense sectors, emergency food is critical. Moreover, army soldiers are stationed in combat zones or on frequent duty assignments where food and water are scarce. As a result, army personnel is required to carry food and beverages on an emergency basis, fueling the expansion of the developing food industry. The rising consumption of food products that require little preparation time, shifting consumer preferences for convenient meals, and government measures to offer basic necessities under uncertain climatic circumstances are some of the factors driving the progress of the market. The growing demand for emergency food in the army sector is therefore fuelling the growth of the Emergency Food market.

Increasing food crisis situations coupled with government initiatives to curb it is propelling the growth of the emergency food market

As per statistics maintained on efoodnet.org, on the whole, 99% of visitors to food pantries drop below the national poverty line, and in 2020, greater than 157,000 visits were made each month to food programs in Pierce County, a boost of 40% over visits in 2019. Dry cereals like rice and oats can be stockpiled as emergency food. MendHunger has come up with Emergency Relief Gluten-Free programs. MendHunger provides applications for Emergency Food Support through a single box wherein one can apply for a one-time gluten-free emergency food delivery. This is accessible to households that are enduring a short-term personal burden and are not able to access the essential secure items. Tracking information is transmitted to the required email once the application has been certified and the shipping label has been produced. There is also a provision to apply for monthly food support which involves a periodic monthly delivery of gluten-free food. This is accessible to households that are enduring a financial personal burden that is anticipated to last longer than 3 months. The intention of the Emergency Food and Shelter (EFSP) program augment and extend the work of regional social service agencies, both nonprofit and governmental, in an endeavor to support people enduring serious economic crisis that is not the immediate outcome of a natural or man-made disaster situation. The 2021 Global Report of Food Crises reported that an estimated 155 million people faced acute food insecurity and need of assistance in 2020. The soaring applications for providing emergency food are therefore propelling the growth of the Emergency Food market during the forecast period 2022-2027.

Emergency Food Market Challenges

Disadvantages Associated With Emergency Food Is Hampering The Market Growth

People suffering from famine lose a large amount of food as a result of rising transportation expenses, which could have been avoided if shipping prices were decreased or eliminated entirely. By the time, developed countries discover that a country is in famine it could be months prior to they gaining the food owing to slow shipping over continents. Furthermore, the sudden accessibility of free food from foreign countries weakens and impairs regional markets and farmers. Owing to donors shipping food from their country of origin, regional stores and farmers in the receiving country or region acquire a loss attributed to their inability to market their products with the instant accessibility of free food. Investigations demonstrate that rather than going to people who are desperate for it. 25% of food support is taken and then sold on the market. The FAO food price index (FFPI) averaged 158.5 points in April 2022, down 1.2 points (0.8%) from the march, such conditions hamper the emergency food market. These statistics demonstrate the inefficiency of food support, attributed to 1/4th of the donated food not even making it to the ones who require it. Another common criticism of food support is that it assists the advancement of wealth and growth in the donor nations, rather than the developing nations that could utilize an economic push. These issues are hampering the Emergency Food Market's growth.
