The global IQF fruits market was valued at $6.2 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $11.8 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2022 to 2031.

IQF fruits are those that have been processed using IQF technology, which involves sending individual fruits to blast freezers for quick freezing in order to extend the fruits' shelf life and preserve them for a longer period of time. With the use of this technique, fruit can be preserved without losing its natural taste or texture.

In the food and beverage industry, the shelf life of food goods is a crucial factor in determining consumer purchase decisions. Consumers are interested in the taste, quality, and cleanliness of the food goods they buy. The IQF technology is frequently used in the food and beverage sector to preserve food products and stop them from losing taste and quality before being consumed. In addition, the requirement for fruit preservation is crucial. To prevent denaturing or spoilage before consumption, these foods must be stored or preserved in a low-temperature environment. The benefits of not having frozen fruits bunch together, especially pulpy fruits, are anticipated to boost the market growth of IQF fruits. Thus, increasing demand for food including fruits with a longer shelf life is fueling the market growth of the IQF fruits market.

Consumer spending on luxury food items is growing rapidly, and fast foods, bakery products, ice creams, and other such lifestyle food products are witnessing increased popularity. IQF fruits are increasingly used in the bakery & confectionary and dairy industries. The demand for high-end frozen bakery products such as cakes and pastries has increased on account of innovative products launched by various players. Furthermore, cooked and semi-cooked frozen food sales are increasing in developing economies such as India and China on account of busy consumer lifestyles, which significantly contributes toward the growth of the global market.

Inappropriate storage and transport facilities in small retail stores are a major challenge for the industry in developing economies. IQF fruit products require proper deep freezing and storage facilities. In addition, rural areas in developing markets such as India and China face storage, refrigeration, and electricity issues, which is a key challenge for major frozen food players. Furthermore, the lack of transport facilities makes the distribution of household IQF fruits. Thus, all these factors together limit the growth of the global IQF fruit market size.
