Increased Demand for Processed Food Augurs Well for Future

Some of the key factors that are expected to reflect positively on the mushroom market are: increasing consumption of processed foods, rise in consumer awareness regarding health benefits of the vegetable products, and investment by food industry players to cater to large audiences with innovative packaging, which also increments the shelf-life of the products. Additionally, rigorous research and development activities are currently underway to harness the possible applications of mushrooms, which will further fuel the market. On the other hand, strikingly low shelf-life of mushrooms, lack of proper process management, and lack of consumer awareness are obstructing the market from flourishing. Nevertheless, growing concerns of obesity is expected to lure newer consumers who want to reduce meat consumption, and open new opportunities in this market.
