The global Frozen Food market size is expected to reach USD 604.17 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Frozen Food Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Distribution Channel (Online, Offline); By Product; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2023 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The increasing preference for online shopping, driven by the convenience of various apps and the rising adoption of e-commerce platforms, contributes significantly to market growth. The expanding use of smartphones and the internet creates opportunities for new market entrants. According to Eurostat in 2021, around 19.7% of EU enterprises' e-commerce sales accounted for approximately 1% of their total turnover. Moreover, data from the American Frozen Food Institute (AFFI) reveals that a significant majority of online retail customers are adding frozen foods to their digital carts, indicating sustained growth in this trend and further boosting market expansion in the forecast period.

The global market witnessed a surge in sales during the initial days of the COVID-19 pandemic, driven by panic buying and fears of lockdowns. Essential items, including frozen products, experienced high demand due to their extended shelf life. However, as production faced challenges and workforces were reduced, stock shortages occurred. Governments allowed the continued manufacturing of edible products to meet consumer needs, resulting in a well-organized supply chain and normalized production by the second quarter of 2020. Changes in consumer habits, such as increased home cooking during lockdowns, led to a decline in frozen item sales. As lockdowns lifted in phases, the food service industry faced challenges until the second quarter of 2021. According to the American Frozen Food Institute (AFFI) and The Food Industry Association (FMI), frozen foods showed resilience during the pandemic, generating USD 65.1 billion in retail sales in 2020, a 21% increase YoY, and continued significant growth in 2021. Increased online retailing also contributed to sales growth, with consumers in the U.S. relying on online platforms during the pandemic, as reported by BBC.
