Meal Replacement Product Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Meal Replacement Product Manufacturing

The Meal Replacement Product Manufacturing industry has thrived in the five years to 2015. Heightened obesity rates and increased demand for convenience products are two long-term trends that have strongly favored meal replacement goods. Going forward, demand for meal replacement products is expected to remain strong. Rising per capita disposable income and increasing health consciousness in consumers will create positive conditions for manufacturers over the next five years. Additionally, Americans will continue to struggle with weight loss and want to improve their nutrition, which will precipitate stronger demand for simple products such as meal replacement items. Compounding this effect, increasingly busy consumers will also use meal replacement products to save time during the day.

Companies in this industry manufacture meal replacement products and protein supplements. These products come as prepackaged powdered drink mixes, ready-to-drink beverages or edible bars designed to replace prepared meals.
