A Look into the Future: Trends in Food and Beverage Markets to 2050


The demographic trends over the coming decades through 2050 indicate that the global population will be older and more urbanized, according to Food and Drink Megatrends to 2050: Convenience and Healthification for an Aging, Urban Population, a recent Industry Trend Analysis by BMI Research.

This, combined with growing health awareness, will spur demand for convenient, healthy food products which are already transforming the food and beverage industry in multiple ways. It is likely that these interconnected megatrends will force companies to tailor their offerings to consumer demand, rather than the “big brands” leading the industry, with the next generation becoming smarter about the way that they consume food and drink products.
