Market Drivers and Restraints:
Chronic health conditions, such as diabetes and obesity, are on the rise due to increased consumption of animal foods. Due to such a factor, the demand for many herbal products has increased dramatically among consumers, which on the other hand has led to an increase in demand for packaged vegan foods. Additionally, herbal products help maintain body cholesterol and blood pressure levels and thus reduce the risk of cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a WHO agency, has classified processed meat as a carcinogen and said that eating 50 grams of processed meat each day increased the risk of colorectal cancer by 18%. Also, with the contemporary introduction of the vegan concept and its associated health benefits such as nutrition and stimulation of protective enzymes in the body, packaged vegan food is a consumer preference. This should greatly expand the North American market. Large numbers of people around the world are turning to veganism, a practice of refraining from using animal products out of love and consideration for animals and the environment. Ethical concerns regarding meat consumption and the increasing exploitation of animals have led more people to prefer vegan foods, which is driving the growth of the North American packaged vegan food market.

Additionally, due to growing consumer demand for plant-based foods, the market for vegan foods and other vegetarian products is growing rapidly with a range of innovative product options. Based on these, the market is foreseen to grow during the outook period.

The North American packaged vegan foods market has been segmented according to type and distribution channel. The type segment is divided into dairy alternatives, packaged meals, meat alternatives, baked goods and confectionery, and others.
The vegan dairy alternative is likely to dominate the market due to the increasing adoption of these products by consumers. Additionally, these packaged vegan dairy alternatives are available in retail stores, supermarkets, and hypermarkets. In addition to this, the demand for flavored vegan dairy alternatives has increased in recent years, which is driving the growth of packaged vegan dairy alternatives. According to the Good Food Institute (GFI), vegan yogurt, spreads, cheese, and ice cream are becoming increasingly popular. The distribution channel is fragmented between the online and offline distribution channels.
The offline distribution channel is expected to have the largest market share in the local packaged vegan food market during the foreseen period. This is mainly due to the wide availability of packaged food products in the offline channel, such as retail stores and hypermarkets. Many retailers are taking key initiatives to push packaged vegan food to market. For example, Walmart is urging its suppliers to meet the growing demand for plant-based foods.
There is no evidence that Coronavirus can be transferred from food or food packaging. The lockdown condition raised due to this pandemic has resulted in the decreased production and sales.
