COVID-19 Impact on the Global Energy Bar

COVID-19 is an infectious disease that originated in the Hubei province of Wuhan city in China in late December 2019. The highly contagious disease, caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) virus, is transmitted from humans to humans. Subsequently, the outbreak in December 2019 has spread to almost 213 countries around the globe, with the WHO (World Health Organization) declaring it a public health emergency on March 11th, 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic allowed many private players to emerge in the markets to meet the increased demand for snack products, which benefited energy bar manufacturers. The need for innovative snacks is consistently high in developed countries, owing to the convenience of quick usage, storage, and easy provision for nutrition and energy requirements. During the lockdown, online stores witnessed a remarkable increase in sales of snacks, bars, and other convenience foods, thereby sustaining the demand for energy bars. As they were afraid of running out of products, most people preferred to buy in bulk. As a result, large basket sizes remained a significant reason for preserving snacks and bars in all regions.

Global Energy Bar Market Dynamics

Drivers: Convenient and nutritional on-the-go snacking is in high demand

Changes in consumption patterns and increased awareness about healthy foods led to a surge in demand for convenience foods. On-the-go snacking has become extremely popular due to the hectic lifestyles of the working population. However, the on-the-go snacking concept is closely connected to energy bars as it is easy to consume. Energy bars with a high amount of micronutrients, which provide instant energy, are widely adopted by consumers. Thus, the benefits provided by energy bars, such as convenient to eat and disposable packaging, ensure the product’s safety, thereby increasing the demand for energy bars during the forecast period.

Restraints: Consumer perceptions for snack bars are changing rapidly

Constantly shifting customer behavior and tastes for snack food products adds to the cost of R&D and manufacturing setup for the major players, thereby restricting the market growth. Furthermore, the widespread involvement of local snack makers has hampered the operations of global industry players. In addition, the energy bar market growth is expected to be limited by the broad availability of alternative products such as energy drinks, cookies, and powder.
