(Entertainment-NewsWire.com, November 13, 2017 ) Potato chips and crisps are one of the most popular snack foods consumed worldwide. Over the years, the potato chips and crisp market has witnessed substantial growth, turning it into a multibillion-dollar market. However, the potato chips and crisps market is witnessing a shift in consumption patterns, a fluctuation in price of raw materials, and intense competition from substitutes. Manufacturers in the market are expected to meet success by developing newer products and quickly modifying ingredients of existing products to meet changes in consumer demand.
Changing lifestyles and longer working hours have reduced the tendency of consumers to have elaborate meals. This is a key factor driving the potato chips and crisps market. A rise in the demand for packaged food, urbanization, increasing disposable incomes of consumers and growth in the economy of developing nations are collectively boosting the growth of the potato chips and crisps market. On the other hand, a rise in health consciousness among consumers has encouraged a shift towards healthier eating patterns, such as fruits and wholegrain crackers. This is expected to threaten the potato chips and crisps market. However, manufacturers in the industry are responding to this threat by developing a premium range of healthier potato chips and crisps.
