Market Overview

The global consumption of carrots and turnips was 46.3 million metric ton, in terms of volume, in 2020, and it is projected to register a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period (2021-2026). The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on various businesses in 2020, including the carrots and turnips market. The governments in many countries introduced multiple measures, such as shutdowns and travel restrictions, intended to slow down the spread of the virus, resulting in supply chain disruptions in the market in several parts of the world. Farm production worldwide was affected by bottlenecks for inputs, most notably labor. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a moderate influence on the carrots and turnips market in 2021.

Over the long term, the increasing demand for baby carrots used as a snack instead of other junk foods, growing demand for organic carrots and carrot juice, and the growing health awareness are some of the factors expected to drive the market growth over the study period. The demand for snack carrots is growing in developed countries such as the United States and European countries. Carrots are low in fat and calories and rich in many vitamins and minerals. The rising awareness of the health benefits of carrots is expected to boost the demand for carrots in the coming years. However, factors, such as unfavorable weather conditions in the producing countries and lack of infrastructure for storage​, are expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Popularity for Baby Carrots

The development of the consumer market and the rapid increase in the popularity of ready-to-eat packaged foods led to the invention of baby carrots in the United States. Baby carrots are made from longer carrots that have been peeled and cut into a smaller size. The major demand for baby carrots is in the United States, Germany, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, and China. In 2019, the share of sales of baby carrots was 54% of the US carrots market. Bolthouse farms and Grimmway farms are the leading producers of baby carrots in the United States. In 2019, the test campaign of " Baby Carrots - Eat Em Like Junk Food " was launched by Bolthouse focused on replacing carrots and modifying the packaging to have them resemble junk foods with much lower calories and better nutrition. The market for baby carrots is also growing rapidly in China due to the rising awareness of the benefits of consuming raw baby carrots, increasing the overall baby carrot consumption. Children in China like baby carrots as a snack, and their mothers consider them nutrient supplements for their children. Thus, the increased awareness and rising consumption trend of baby carrots are expected to boost the demand for carrots during the forecast period.
