Food products that need some preparation, such as heating or boiling before consumption, fall under the Ready-To-Cook category, while the Ready To Eat category comprises packaged food items that are ready for consumption. Industry experts say the renewed interest in these categories has also been fuelled by the decline in out-of-home consumption of food. The growth in the market is driven by increasing urbanization and the shift of people from Tier 2 towns to Tier 1 and Metro cities. Besides this, changing consumer demographics such as the rise of nuclear families and double-income households coupled with a busy lifestyle is driving demand for convenience food products. According to the report titled- 'India Ready To Cook Market Outlook, 2027-28' published by Bonafide Research the market grew historically at a growth rate of around 14% from the period 2016-17 to 2021-22. Further it is expected to grow with increased demands from the working populace of the country. The growing number of female joining workplace is the major driving force for robust demands for ready-to-cook products in India.

By category, the market is segmented into four major categories named: Ready-to-mix, Instant Noodles, Instant Pasta & Instant Soup. The boom in India's Ready-To-cook market has given chances to many big entry-level players to increase their market share by delivering more variants at a reasonable price. Out of the segments, the instant noodles segment leads the market which has contributed to a share of more than half since the year 2015 and is to incline through the forecasted period. Maintaining taste remains the biggest challenge in the categories, as most of these products have preservatives, and go through processing.

Currently, the majority of the market is concentrated in Metro and Tier 1 cities owing to the high purchasing capacity of the consumer in these cities. However, the increase in the awareness and the viability of these products in a smaller quantity is to allow the rural region to experience a growth of over 19% during the forecasted period. Also, the brands' products are present mostly in modern trade stores and Grade A/A+ general trade stores owing to refrigeration requirements for frozen RTC which limits their adoption beyond these stores. However, online platforms have provided an alternative channel of growth for brands in the category and have led to an increase in their presence across various regions in the country.

The major challenge limiting the growth is the lack of proper infrastructure to supply and store such products on the retail shelf. However, improving cold chain infrastructure and investment by players to develop infrastructure in traditional retail stores will provide impetus to the overall growth of the category. Also, continuous innovation by players in developing new products and the launch of regional variants will further increase the adoption of categories among consumers.

Feed Phosphate Market Research FAQs

Young consumers spend most of their income on convenient ready-to-eat food products. Young consumers are the easiest targets for ready-to-eat food manufacturing giants.

Revenue in the Ready-to-Eat Meals segment amounts to US$56.93bn in 2022. The market is expected to grow annually by 9.59% (CAGR 2022-2027). In global comparison, most revenue is generated in China (US$122.40bn in 2022).

Ready-to-eat food is food that will not be cooked or reheated before serving. This includes salads, cooked meats, smoked fish, desserts, sandwiches, cheese and food that you have cooked in advance to serve cold.

TWO HOURS is the MAXIMUM time perishable foods should be at room temperature (ONE HOUR at temperatures 90 degrees F and higher). This INCLUDES the time they're on the table during your meal.

Ready-to-eat foods are safest when fresh, so eat them as soon as possible. Keep unopened bags, boxes, cans, and jars of non-perishable food in a cool, dry place— not above the stove, under the sink, or anywhere temperatures fluctuate. Rust, dents, and bulges on cans are danger signs.
