Frozen Potato Market Drivers and Opportunities

Expansion of Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs)

Due to the rising number of dual-income families and single-person households, people don’t get enough time to focus on their personal lives. Therefore, they are seeking products that offer them convenience and help save their time and effort. Fast food restaurants and quick service restaurants (QSRs) offer mass-produced products in no time offering huge convenience to the consumers. These restaurants are becoming popular because they offer a variety of food in very little time and at affordable prices. Due to the growth and expansion of these quick-service restaurants or QSRs, the demand for frozen potatoes has also increased. Products like frozen French fries, hash browns, and shaped and stuffed/topped potatoes are mostly demanded by the QSRs because frozen potato requires less preparation time and is easy to use. This helps the QSRs to provide the consumers with their food quickly, which is the main strength of the quick-service restaurants.

Advancement in Cold Chain Infrastructure

For instance, according to the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) and the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) report, the total capacity of refrigerated warehouses globally increased to 719 million cubic meters in 2020 which is 16.7% greater than the capacity reported in 2018. In addition, the expansion of cold chain capacity in emerging countries differs for each country. The expansion of cold chain capacity in emerging countries varies for each country. In most developing countries, such as South Africa, Mexico, and Kenya, the cold chain is concentrated in urban areas and transportation terminals such as airports, where exporters may be situated. Further, major market service providers are constantly improving their technologies to stay ahead of the competition and maintain efficiency, integrity, and safety across the globe. For instance, vendors have implemented Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) and RFID technology to improve efficiency with smaller shipments. In addition, they are expanding their multi-compartment refrigerated vehicle fleets to provide additional services to consumers. Thus, advancements in cold chain infrastructure are emerging as a lucrative opportunity for the frozen potato market players.
