The Global Tomato Ketchup Market size is expected to reach $24.1 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 2.6% CAGR during the forecast period. Tomato ketchup is a tangy and sweet-flavored condiment made using tomatoes, different spices, herbs, sugar, and other additions. It's also simply called ketchup on occasion. The market is being driven by millennials and generation Z's increased usage of tomato ketchup with various fast-food items. Furthermore, the increasing use of tomato ketchup in the food and beverage industry by various caf?s, fast-food offering restaurants, motels, and others is propelling market expansion throughout the projection period. The industry is growing due to customers' preference for western fast foods and the constant altering of dietary preferences around the world. Furthermore, the global market is expected to develop because of the growing middle-class population, rising disposable income, and urbanization around the world. Increased demand for organic ketchup is driving industry sales, due to increased health concerns and consumer awareness of the benefits around the world. The makers have a wide variety of items available, including hot and spicy and roasted garlic. Government guidelines in the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, China, and India, on the other hand, are expected to preserve the quality of ketchup goods. For example, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Food Product Standards and Food Additives (FSSAI), and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) all enforce many government regulations and recommendations for fast food and related product makers in the United States. The established government guidelines and procedures ensure that items meet sanitary standards before being consumed. COVID-19 Impact The COVID-19 pandemic led to the loss of lives of millions. Governments all across the world implemented nationwide lockdowns to prevent the spread of the virus. The COVID-19 pandemic related lockdown disrupted transportation and temporarily halted the supply of raw goods like tomatoes, having a substantial influence on the market's export and import around the globe. Following the COVID pandemic, market players will benefit from increased demand for fast food and ready-to-eat products. As a result, the market is likely to increase steadily in the following years. Market Growth Factors Growing Popularity of Ready-to-Eat (RTE) Food Products The market is primarily driven by rising demand for ready-to-eat (RTE) fast foods around the world, particularly among millennials. Fritters, pizzas, sandwiches, burgers, and French fries all benefit from the addition of tomato ketchup. Consumers' changing lifestyles, increased spending capacity, and changed nutritional choices are all contributing to market expansion. Food and beverages that take little time to prepare and can be eaten on the go are preferred by consumers. The use of readily available and convenience food products has increased as a result of the growing working population and demanding schedules, positively boosting the demand for condiments such as tomato ketchup. Tomato ketchup comes in cans, bottles, and pouches, which adds to its convenience and hence increases demand. Growing Preference for Organic Tomato Ketchup The growing health consciousness of the general public has resulted in an increase in demand for healthier and organic tomato ketchup made with natural components. Consumer preference is rapidly turning toward homegrown brands that use non-GMO, insecticide-free, pesticide-free tomatoes. Tomato concentrate, which is created from a blend of red ripe organic tomatoes, distilled vinegar, naturally-sourced sugar, salt, onion powder, spices, and flavorings, is also used to make organic tomato ketchup. These versions are richer in nutritional value and are also better for the environment because they are free of artificial chemicals and preservatives. Market Restraining Factors Demand and Supply Chain Problems Due to Covid-19 Deteriorated supply chains as a result of lockdowns have a negative impact on the market since there will be no production without the essential raw materials, and without production, there will be no product to sell. Governments all over the world are re-imposing lockdown due to rapid mutation in the structure of SARS-CoV-2. Furthermore, the FMCG market in India is expected to lose some share of its demand in 2020 as a result of the pandemic and ensuing lockdowns. As a result, the industry does not provide much space. Furthermore, online merchants such as Amazon and Grofers only offer 3-4 percent discounts on MRPs that the offline market has successfully delivered. Product Type Outlook Based on Product Type, the market is segmented into Regular and Flavored. The regular segment acquired the largest revenue share in the tomato ketchup market in 2021. The industry has been driven in recent years by the rising popularity of normal ketchup products due to their long shelf life. Furthermore, rising consumer worries about their health have increased demand for low-calorie, low-fat tomato processed products, which is driving the industry forward. Packaging Outlook Based on Packaging, the market is segmented into Bottled and Pouch. The pouch segment garnered a substantial revenue share in the tomato ketchup market in 2021. The growing demand for creative and appealing packaging for tomato processed products is driving this industry forward. Additionally, businesses are embracing these pouches since they are environmentally friendly, sustainable, and 100% recyclable, which is expected to drive market expansion over the forecast period. Distribution Channel Outlook Based on Distribution Channel, the market is segmented into Offline and Online. The offline segment acquired the largest revenue share in the tomato ketchup market in 2021. This is because consumers prefer to buy consumer items, groceries, and processed food products like ketchup from stores where they can personally inspect the product. Furthermore, the category is projected to be driven by simple access to and searching for numerous processed tomato products through retailers. Due to improved distribution channel networks around the world, offline channels are likely to stay dominant in the projection term. Regional Outlook Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa. North America acquired the highest revenue share in the tomato ketchup market in 2021. The market is huge due to rising consumer awareness of the health benefits of eating tomato ketchup in this region. Consumers in this region favor ketchup over other sauces and condiments, and practically every household in the United States uses it, resulting in significant market growth. Furthermore, increased fast-food consumption in the United States and Canada is propelling market expansion. The market research report covers the analysis of key stake holders of the market.
