US salty snacks segment soars
The US salty snacks market is forecast to grow to $29 billion by 2022, up from $24 billion
in 2017, according to a report from market research firm Packaged Facts.
In the report, "Salty snacks: US market trends and opportunities," Packaged Facts identifies several avenues for growth over the next five years. New taste and flavor combinations are expected to flourish, as will better-for-you snacks that feature alternative ingredients and different proteins, grains, vegetables and superfoods.
The research firm said salty snacks grew at a compound annual growth rate of nearly
4% between 2012 and 2017, benefitting from prime placement in vending machines,
grab-and-go retail outlets and checkout lanes in grocery stores.
