Popcorn is a type of snack made from maize or corn kernel. It is prepared by heating corn kernels with vegetable oil or butter in a pot, stove, kettle, or microwave. Owing to its high nutrition content, popcorn is consumed as a snack food all over the world in two forms-ready-to-eat (RTE), and microwave popcorn. These are consumed as the most favorite snack at homes as well as at movie theatres, sports events, fairs, and others public places.
Popcorns are rich and concentrated sources of fiber, polyphenolic compounds, vitamin B complex, antioxidants, and various proteins. Increase in health consciousness among consumers coupled with health benefits of eating popcorn contribute to the growth of the popcorn market. Significant rise in theatres and multiplexes in the developed countries leads to the growth of the popcorn market. Moreover, increase in number of microwaves have raised the demand for microwavable popcorn further driving the market growth.
In 2016, the household segment accounted for the highest market share. Factors such as growth in health consciousness and change in eating habits motivate consumers to opt for healthy convenience snack food. Being a good source of dietary fiber and many other nutrients such as phosphorous, proteins, vitamin B complex, popcorn is becoming a better choice for snack and breakfast. In addition, health benefits associated with it such as improving digestive system, supporting healthy bone function, and others has raised the demand for popcorn in the household.
However, availability of other alternatives such as nuts, chips, pretzels, and yogurt are projected to restrict the growth of the popcorn market. Increase in disposable income and rise in the number of commercial places such as single theatres, multiplexes, stadiums, and others in emerging economies such as China, India, and Brazil are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the popcorn manufacturers.
