Opportunities in the Latin American Savory Snacks Sector: Analysis of Opportunities Offered by High Growth Economies

Summary

Global Savory Snacks sector is forecast to record a CAGR of 6% during 2016-2021. Latin America, with a value share of 12.1% in the global Savory Snacks sector, represented the fifth-largest regional market in 2016 and is forecast to record a CAGR of 6.2% during 2016-2021. The high potential countries in the region, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and Chile, with high Savory Snacks consumption, led the regional growth. The market is on the rise due to increasing habit of snacking in-between the meals, primarily, among young working age consumers and children.

Processed Snacks held the largest value share in 2016 and is expected to grow the fastest, at a CAGR of 7.5% during 2016-2021, attributed to heightened consumer interest for products with low fat and without preservatives, aided by ease of availability at a low cost. At a country level, Brazil dominated the regional market, accounting for a value share of 48.3% in 2016, followed by Colombia and Chile (10.0%).

Latin American Health & Wellness market stood at US$958.1 million in 2016 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% during 2016-2021 Although a very small market, a large aging population (especially in Chile and Brazil) and rising awareness surrounding diet related health issues such as adolescent obesity, diabetes and cholesterol (across demographics), are driving the growth of Health & Wellness products in the Latin American region. In addition, rising economic standards are driving consumers to choose better-for-health variants over regular/standard varieties.

Hypermarkets & Supermarkets was the most popular distribution channel for Savory Snacks sales in the Latin American region, accounting for 53.9% of overall sales in 2016, followed by convenience stores with a 26.9% share. This is due to the fact that Hypermarkets & Supermarkets offer a wide variety of products in terms of flavors and pack sizes. The distribution pattern is, however, different in Chile and Colombia, where convenience stores are the preferred point of sale for consumers.

Savory Snacks sector in the Latin American region is relatively skewed towards established brands with the top five brands - Cheetos, Lay`s, Yoki, Fandangos, Ruffles - accounting for 34% of the market value in 2016. Brazil held the highest Private Label share in the region, followed by Peru.
