Euromonitor International reported that the packaged food market recorded only marginal positive value growth in 2015 as the Korean economy remained in recession.

The rate of economic growth was only 2.8% in 2015, according to the Bank of Korea, lower than the 3.3% level witnessed in the previous year, according to Reportbuyer, leading industry intelligence solution that provides all market research reports from top publishers.

Due to the ongoing uncertain economic outlook, consumer confidence was unable to recover, and in fact shrank. Nonetheless, the ready meals category, which carries fairly high unit prices, recorded healthy value growth.

Firstly, economic conditions in the UK have changed for the better, and a consequent effect has been that the British public is visiting foodservice outlets in greater numbers, thereby somewhat lessening demand for packaged food. Secondly, there has been evidence of a degree of innovation..
