Industry performance is dependent on consumers' ability to purchase canned goods. During the five-year period, per capita disposable income has been increasing and is expected to continue to do so over the five years to 2023. As consumers have more discretionary income, they may begin to purchase canned food in larger quantities, strengthening industry revenue. During the five-year period, average industry profit declined due to rising costs, weak demand and external competition. Companies with prolonged periods of declining sales have exited the industry while major operators have increased acquisition activity.
