Research and Markets: On-The-Go Snack Consumption Increasing Significantly Resulting in New Distribution Opportunities


DUBLIN, Ireland -- 2/14/2005 -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Global Innovations in Savory Snacks to their offering.

The Americas, driven by the enormous savory snacks market in the US, were responsible for almost half of the $44 billion spent on savory snacks in 2003. Furthermore, the role of savory snacks in both culture and custom in this region, combined with a relatively high consumer spending power, has seen the market grow at a CAGR for 1998-2003 of 5.2%.

PepsiCo is by far the largest company in the global savory snacks industry. Commanding approximately twelve times the market share of its nearest rival, Kraft, the company is now making further inroads into the Asia-Pacific market.
