Freeze Dried Vegetables and Fruits Market size will likely surpass USD 60 billion by 2025; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights.
Increasing popularity of packaged food will be a major factor behind the freeze dried vegetables and fruits market growth. The product is extensively used in preparing many packaged food items such as soups, juices, ready-to-eat meals, etc. The advantages of the product over fresh fruits and vegetables will augment the industry growth in the forecast years. Freeze drying is considered as the best drying process for packaging food and beverage products as it maintains the structural integrity and preserves the flavor. Freeze dried fruits & vegetables have better aroma, rehydration, and bioactivity when compared to products dried using other alternative techniques. Other advantages include better shelf-life, higher amount of retention of nutrients, color & texture and easy rehydration capability. These factors, coupled with developments in drying technology, will propel the freeze dried vegetables and fruits market growth in the forecast years.
Lack of awareness about the product will be a major factor that may hinder the freeze dried fruits & vegetables market development in the forecast years. Although the product is used in many packaged food formulations, the awareness level among consumers about its advantages is still low, especially in Asia Pacific and Latin America, where fresh fruits and vegetables are consumed at a significant rate. These reasons may hamper the freeze dried fruits & vegetables industry in coming years.
