Canned Fruit & Vegetable Processing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Canned Fruit & Vegetable Processing in the US

Over the five years to 2019, the Canned Fruit and Vegetable Processing industry has struggled against shifts in consumer preferences that have reduced demand for many of the industry's core products. Due to consumer perceptions about the relative nutrition of these products and increased attention to healthy eating, more Americans have favored fresh and organic foods, dampening industry demand. Processed fruits and vegetables are also somewhat countercyclical goods, rising in sales when consumers have limited disposable income for dining out or purchasing fresh produce. Although sales have largely stagnated over the past five years, the industry has staved off more substantial declines by adapting to consumer tastes. New products, especially organic products, have helped sustain demand for juice, soup and sauce products in the industry. Over the five years to 2024, changing consumer attitudes toward food are expected to continue limiting this industry's prospects.

Operators in this industry purchase fruits and vegetables and process them with other ingredients to create a variety of food products including canned juices, canned soups (except seafood), jams, baby food, sauces and dehydrated fruits and vegetables. The final products are then packaged and sold to consumers at various retail channels. This industry does not include frozen fruits and vegetables, which are discussed in IBISWorld report 31141.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
