COVID-19 Impact on Snack Pellets Market

While several industries are at the wrong edge of the COVID-19 pandemic, the snacks industry is among the least affected sectors, and has emerged as one of the fastest progressing FMCG domains. The COVID-19 induced lockdowns have offered a plethora of prospects and turned the tide in favor of certain snack pellet manufacturers, given notable rise in home-cooking, or at-home consumption.

As working from home has become the new normal, ready-to-cook products such as snack pellets have been sold in large quantities over the last few weeks. While reduced demand has slashed the growth rate of snack pellets market by a few percentage points, the market has still managed to generate relevant returns. Moreover, the market represents huge potential for vertical and horizontal growth.

This promising growth has attracted several players to the marketplace, however, leading manufacturers are tapping new territories to propel their revenue growth.

“In an effort to improve production efficiency, manufacturers are leveraging fresh vegetable pulp as additives while extrusion processing of potato-based snack pellets, keeping screw speed maximum. This approach has proven beneficial in reducing water consumption during production, and lowering overall energy requirement by eliminating the need to dry vegetables (additives) before extrusion process,” says analysts at FMI.
