Market Overview

Europe hummus market is expected to register a CAGR of 9.2% to reach USD 653.36 Million by 2026. Hummus is a Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas or other beans, blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and garlic. The hummus market includes the traditional chickpea hummus along with variants such as lentil hummus, black bean hummus, and white bean hummus.

The surging demand for packaged hummus products, especially in Western Europe, is a crucial determinant catalyzing the growth of the Europe hummus market. The growth can be attributed to the rising demand for plant-based protein and the increasing health consciousness.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has impacted the Europe hummus market in many ways. The stockpiling practice has led to a sudden hike in the value of the Europe hummus market in 2020, which is expected to normalize after the stabilization of the outbreak. However, the limited availability of shelf-stable food product stocks in retail stores due to a high impact on logistics is currently one of the biggest concerns across Europe. There is a rising shift in shopper behavior from retail to e-commerce and new consumption patterns across the region. It has also been observed as a result of stockpiling, retailers are running out of stock, and the grocery shelves for popular items sit empty, which is eroding the consumer’s brand preferences. This is promoting the consumption of the products manufactured by small regional players in the market.

Market Dynamics

The Europe hummus market is expected to register a notable growth rate during the forecast period. The rising demand for plant-based protein and increasing health consciousness are the major factors driving the market growth. With the increasing adoption of veganism in Europe, especially in the UK, the demand for plant-based protein has been growing. Manufacturers are also expanding their product lines by launching organic hummus, which is expected to create new opportunities for the vendors active in the regional market. However, fluctuations in raw material prices are projected to restrict the growth of the Europe hummus market.
