Key Trends in the Market

Meal kits refer to packages that contain all the components required for preparing a meal, and can be in the format of heat and eat, or cook and eat. Meal kit delivery services are the delivery of meal kits on an-demand, weekly, or monthly subscription basis that send consumers food items and recipes so they may prepare their own fresh meals at home. Consumers can personalise the food to their tastes and enjoy hassle-free homemade food at lower costs than ready-made food deliveries and with a healthier nutritional profile.

 

  • Meal kit delivery services are becoming increasingly popular due to the benefits of cooked meals, which are less expensive than takeout and home delivery services. For busy professionals and families, meal kits offer an affordable means of preparing meals that are healthy and easy to prepare, supporting the growth of the meal kit delivery services market.
  • Based on the dietary and lifestyle preferences of consumers, meal kit delivery services can be customised, from gluten-free diets, to keto diets, low fat diets, high protein diets, and vegan diets. Customers can choose the ingredients for their meals and alter their preferences as needed and select particular food items. As a result, it is anticipated that the demand for the meal kit delivery services market would rise in the coming years.
  • Due to the improvements in nutrition that meal kits offer, their affordable price, and flexibility, more consumers are investing in long-term subscription plans on weekly and monthly basis. Since the meal kits are typically pre-portioned, there is less wastage and hassles of grocery shopping and meal planning can be avoided, which is surging the demand for the meal kit delivery services market.

Market Share by Platform

The meal kit delivery services market is dominated by the online sector. The segment is growing primarily as a result of the increasing preference of consumers for online shopping as well as the abundance of meal kit options. Businesses that have built an online presence are able to offer customer care with more flexibility by being accessible 24/7, thus increasing the market share of meal kit delivery services. The bulk of enterprises provide their products through their own websites for the convenience of the consumers. Customers prefer to use websites to learn about the weekly and monthly menu as well as the various meal subscriptions that are available, rather than contacting or going in person to the service provider. Specific dietary needs can be catered to with greater ease through online platforms.

 

Market Share by Region

North America is anticipated to continue to hold a sizable share in the meal kit delivery services market during the forecast period. Meal kits are extensively preferred and purchased by consumers in this region because of the busy lifestyles of consumers, and the ability of meal kits to save time and effort in cooking. Meal kits tend to be less priced and a healthier substitute for pre-cooked meal items offered by restaurants, delivery services, and retail outlets. Promotions on social media have further increased the visibility and popularity of meal kit delivery services.

 

The meal kit delivery services market is anticipated to witness growth in the Asia Pacific region in the upcoming years, particularly in countries such as China, Japan, and South Korea. The need for these delivery services is expected to be driven up by the region's growing population of time-constrained clients.
