Global Food Service Industry Market Report 2021-2026 – Favorable consumer sentiment towards outdoor food options to ‘streets’ trend beyond pandemic

DUBLIN, January 25, 2022 (Globe Newswire) — Added to the report “The Food Services Industry – Global Market Trajectory and Analytics” of Presentation.

Global food service industry market to reach US$ 4.1 trillion by 2026

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for the food service industry is estimated at US$3 trillion in the year 2020, projected to reach a revised size of US$4.1 trillion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% over the analysis period. Full services, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% to reach US$1.5 trillion by the end of the analysis period.

Foodservice includes making, serving and selling ready-to-consume food and drinks or providing catering services to public or private end consumers, either in-house or by external operators. As such, food accounts for about 45%–50% of total spending on food in the US, while in less developed markets the percentage can be 10%–15% or less of total spending on food.

The main contributors to the growth of the industry include socio-economic conditions, such as higher disposable income, busy and increased mobile life, increase in outsourcing of non-core activities by companies and expansion of the market into new sectors such as transportation and retail. Some other factors that may influence the market include tourism, immigration, food diversity, access to food service locations and technological advancements in the Internet through online ordering.

A major growth of the food service industry is expected as food service operators are encouraged to invest more in eco-friendly and energy efficient equipment to meet the changing needs. Although the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has impacted operations in the overall food service industry, including fast food facilities and QSR, the long-term prospects remain positive, presenting considerable opportunities for the food service market.

After a thorough analysis of the business impacts of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, the growth in the fast food segment has been adjusted at a revised 6.5% CAGR for the next 7 year period. The segment currently holds 28.1% share in the global food service industry market. Full-service restaurants (FSRs) are joining the takeaway bandwagon. An increasing number of FSRs are offering takeaway options.

In addition, restaurants in the takeaway segment are developing new menus for takeaways instead of serving dine-in menus. Quick service restaurants (QSRs), also known as fast food restaurants, are establishments that are involved in serving fast food and have minimal table services. Convenience and affordable foods and time and cost savings are driving the growth in the QSRs market. The rapid growth of the online delivery and home delivery markets, driven by increasing consumer desire for home delivery of food items, is also driving growth.
