About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Although the US economy is continuing its recovery, and more Americans can afford to return to restaurants, retail volume sales of pasta are poised to grow by just 1% in 2014. Pasta’s relative convenience, low cost, and versatility make it a staple good for many consumers. At the basic end, preparing pasta only requires boiling a pot of water and heating up jarred pasta sauce. At the same time, dedicated home cooks can prepare their own Bolognese sauce or make lasagne. Additionally, pasta’s low cost enables it to be consumed by everyone. The recent introductions of gluten-free pasta varieties have allowed pasta to be consumed by people avoiding gluten. The 1% retail volume gain and flat current value sales for 2014 is in line with the review period average.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Private label will remain as the leader of pasta, accounting for 23% value share in 2014, despite a 1% decrease in sales to US$636 million. Private label has benefited from savvy consumers reigning in their food budgets during the recession as many people traded down from branded items in an effort to save money. Post-recession, many consumers decided to remain with private label as they did not notice a huge difference in quality between national brands and private label products. Private label has benefited as it introduced more health and wellness varieties such as wheat and protein-enriched varieties.

PROSPECTS

  • Pasta value sales are expected to decline by 4% at constant 2014 prices over the forecast period while growing by 2% in retail volume terms. Pasta is expected to remain a pantry staple and should not encounter difficulties maintaining its current level of volume sales but strong growth will be hard to come by. Opportunities will be found on the fringes and by manufacturers who are able to create excitement around their products by showing consumers new exciting ways to make pasta healthier and introducing new “better for you” varieties of pasta that does not suffer in terms of taste. The 4% value decline is an improvement over the 8% value decline at constant 2014 prices recorded over the review period. Higher demand for health and wellness pasta is expected to improve pasta’s prospects in comparison to the review period.
