Meal replacement products represent the pre-packaged and calorie-controlled food items that serve as substitutes for whole-food meals. They include ready-to-eat (RTE) foods, shakes, snack bars, powders, etc. Meal replacement products are rich in essential nutrients, fats, minerals, proteins, fibers, vitamins, complex carbohydrates, etc., which assist in replacing unhealthy or high-calorie meals. Meal replacement products are also available in various flavors, such as vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, blueberry, etc. As a result, they are considered convenient alternatives for healthy and low-calorie meals that can be consumed at any time.
The growing incidences of obesity and diabetes, coupled with the elevating consumer awareness towards the importance of weight management, are among the key factors driving the meal replacement products market. In line with this, on account of the hectic lifestyles, consumers are increasingly opting for weight reduction and diet programs that involve the consumption of easy-to-prepare nutritional products, which is further propelling the market growth. Moreover, the expanding promotional activities by leading manufacturers and the inflating popularity of online retail channels are also augmenting the global market. Besides this, numerous product innovations, including the introduction of plant-based and organic meal replacement shakes that are free of gluten, artificial colors, sweeteners, preservatives, etc., are anticipated to bolster the meal replacement products market in the coming years. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the meal replacement products market to reach US$ 19 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.5 during 2022-2027.
