Organic Food Market in the United States – Forecast, Opportunities & Trends 2015-2020

Taiyou Research's report on the US market for organic food analyzes the growth of the organic food industry in the country.

The organic food market in the US has been growing by double-digits every year since the late 1990s. The industry was worth only USD 3.6 billion in 1997 and it grew significantly to a record USD 43.3 billion by the end of 2015. Food produced without the usage of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms or any other chemicals, is known as organic food.

A growing consumer interest on consuming food items not contaminated by pesticides and other chemicals has been behind this boom in the growth of organic food. In fact, sales from the organic food sector make up almost five percent of the total food sales in the United States.

Organic farming is growing around the world and many organic farmers have actually increased their usage of organic seed since the launch of many supportive government incentives and programs around the world. There has been a growing public perception that organic food is a safer and more nutritious choice of food as compared to conventional food.
