Salad Dressing Production - Industry Market Research Report

Salad Dressing Production

The Salad Dressing Production industry has stagnated over the past five years. Shifting consumer preferences, including an emerging preference for foods without artificial flavorings, have posed a challenge to the large processed food producers that account for a substantial share of the industry. In addition, slow disposable income growth and high price competition among downstream grocery stores has filtered up to manufacturers, keeping prices nearly flat during the five-year period. Although dressings remain a staple good for many, and volume is expected to remain relatively steady, flat salad dressing prices have led sales to decline in real terms.

This industry includes companies that manufacture salad dressing. Most companies typically participate in a variety of sauce and condiment production activities. Industry manufacturers typically produce an array of different types of dressing, ranging from cream-based to oil-based dressings. The industry only includes liquid dressings.

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.
