Key Trends in the Market

French fries are a common international snack food made from potatoes that are cut into strips then baked or fried. Typically served hot, French fries are prepared in a variety of shapes, including waffle, curly, and thin strips, and consumed with ketchup, mayonnaise, salsa, gravy, or other condiments. French fries largely contain carbohydrates and protein from potatoes in addition to lipids absorbed during the deep-frying process.

  • Expansion of fast-food restaurants are increasing the French fries market share around the world as they offer quick and affordable French fries which attract a large consumer base. A quick service restaurant's advantage is that it is a particular kind of eatery that offers fast food meals with minimal table service.
  • Based on the French fries market trends analysis, advantages like being quick and simple to prepare and serve while preserving the same taste and quality are significant drivers of the growth of the global market for French fries.
  • The growing population of young people are fuelling the market for French fries as they are a highly popular food item among them due to the taste, easy preparation, and wide availability.

Market Share by Product

The frozen French fries category is projected to experience fast growth during the forecast period as they offer similar flavours to fresh French fries, while requiring significantly less time and effort. Rising investments by major players in the frozen French fries segment and availability of different flavour and shape variations are expected to support the further growth of the frozen French fries market. 

 

Many fast food outlets like McDonald's and KFC are also utilising frozen French fries for their preparations. Frozen French fries reduce the risk of differences in taste due to variations in potato oil, temperature, and moisture which can drastically affect the texture and flavour of fresh French fries, leading to inconsistent results. Accordingly, more fast food restaurants are using frozen French fries, influencing the French fries market price. 

 

Market Share by Region

North America is anticipated to account for a significant portion of the market in terms of value throughout the projected period due to the region's well established fast food sector. Demand for French fries in North America is being driven by an increase in fast food consumer preference as well as a rise in the number of consumers who prefer frozen foods that can be prepared easily. Additionally, the expansion of fast-food restaurants, increasing disposable income, expanding online shopping penetration, and the use of home delivery services are further supporting the expansion of the French fries industry in North America.
