Salad Dressing Production in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Salad Dressing Production

The Salad Dressing Production industry has stagnated over the five years to 2018. 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, 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. Over the coming years, the industry's continued responsiveness to shifting consumer tastes, as well as increased demand for premium dressings, is expected to fuel a modest turnaround. In addition, stronger growth in per capita disposable income will ease price competition at downstream retailers and help manufacturers once again raise selling prices. As a result, profit is expected to increase over the five years to 2023.

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.
