Analyst Opinion

The Meal Kits market has been an up-and-coming service due to the convenience with most markets dominated by one player, HelloFresh. As a niche market, the customer churn is high, and the customer lifetime value does not always cover the acquisition cost.

Nevertheless, the United States leads all the markets, it is even worth more than half of the revenue generated by HelloFresh. South Korea shows the strongest growth. In 2021, more than 70 percent of South Korean adults were aware of meal kits. Among women the awareness was even higher, exceeding 80 percent. In Europe, the craze has not yet gained traction but shows promise. Sustainability is a big trend in the market as meal kits have less of a carbon footprint than grocery stores.

This data helps us estimate the market size for each country individually.
