While many consumers seek to lead healthier lives, snacking and the Trends associated with it revolves around indulgence, fun and enjoyment, and other similar trends.

Key Market Issues

Overall the Savory Snacks market is highly trend orientated, but the picture varies greatly by category. In some categories just under a third of the value is being directly influenced by consumer trends, whereas elsewhere leading trends influence far less actual value.

Overall, branded products account for most of the Savory Snacks products in the US, with Private Labels struggling to achieve greater penetration. However, trends in Private Label penetration in other countries, especially where these products have been able to increase their quality, have shown that brands should act now in order to consolidate on this position and prevent future loss of market presence for these products.

In several categories the leading brands have strong positions, but beyond these leaders the pattern of brand share is quite fragmented, providing potential opportunities for new market entrants to take share from weaker brands.

Key Highlights

In volume terms the retailing of Savory Snacks is consolidated at the top end, with a small number of retailers controlling a large share of the market. However, outside of this leading group the share is highly fragmented. For companies in this market to build significant scale quickly, securing listings amongst these leading retailers, inevitably including Walmart, will be key to success.

Several trends affect the market, and while the picture varies greatly by category overall it can be said that many consumers are influenced not only by the trend of Indulgence, but that in Savory Snacks this translates into offering enjoyable, even fun, products that offer little bits of "me-time" during the day.

Of the total market value, over half of this is accounted for by the two leading categories of Processed Snacks and Potato Chips. However, the importance of trends varies between them, making a deep understanding of "where to play" essential for effective product positioning.
