The global ethnic foods market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12% in the forecast period of 2022-2027. As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, rapid globalisation is driving the growth of the global ethnic foods market.


The rapid globalisation and the increasing immigration activities are bolstering the demand for ethnic foods. The market is also being aided by rising international tourism activities, the growing acceptance of ethnic foods in various countries, and the globalisation of food supplies. The emerging trend of cultural diversity, especially in developed countries, is bolstering the acceptance of diverse ethnic foods.


The increasing westernisation in emerging countries like India is prompting consumers to seek new and innovative cuisines, hence invigorating the growth of the ethnic foods market. The growing political awareness, the rising cultural tolerance, and the increasing trend of multiculturalism are making ethnic food a marker of inclusiveness.


The proliferation of ethnic cuisines in the global metropolitan culture is positively influencing the market growth. As food is considered a symbolic representation of a culture, ethnic dining and cuisines are increasingly becoming more complex and sophisticated. Moreover, the rising consumer awareness is propelling the demand for authentic ethnic cuisines.


Various leading food companies are merging ethnic and globalised flavours to meet consumer demands for exotic and bold flavours. The trend of adventurous eating, especially among millennial and Gen-Z consumers, is boosting the launches of food and beverages with ethnic flavour profiles.
