Description

In this report, Mintel breaks the salty-snack category into eight segments: potato chips, tortilla chips, snack nuts and seeds, popcorn, pretzels, cheese snacks, corn snacks, and “other” salty snacks. The struggling economy has spurred interest in lower-priced private-label salty snacks, and consumers have discovered the quality and value makes it well worth the purchase.

This report explores the salty-snack market as a whole, the share accounted for by private label and offers further detail by segment, comparing branded with private-label sales data from FDMx channels. It provides insights into current sales, product trends, consumer purchase behaviors, and the challenges and opportunities present within the market.

Insights include:

  • Which products and trends have affected sales
  • Which segments are seeing increased private-label market share and the reasons for the shift
  • The role of private label and how it is affecting the position of dominant brand manufacturers
  • Consumers’ attitudes toward salty snacks in general, including a closer look at their attitudes toward private label and reasons they do or do not buy private label
  • Which demographic groups have higher usage rates of specific products and what factors influence this use, including age, income, education, and cultural differences
  • Brand penetration of market leaders and private label
