Global Dried Cashew Nut Snack Market Drivers
Healthy snacking as a rising concern and a trend has been a key driver for the market
Healthy snacking has been a gripping trend, which has been extremely potent in western countries like the US and European Union countries. Snacks were earlier associated with high sugar content food with lots of salt and other additives- which had the potential to spoil one’s health. For example, a Cheetos puff of two ounces had 300 calories with 20 grams of total fat and 600 mg of sodium. Similarly, packaged frozen snacks such as Biscuit Bacon have around 300 calories with 2.5 grams of trans-fat and 940 mg of sodium. On average, a supermarket in a developed country has around 65-70% of food items that have ill effects on one’s health. Moreover, Americans on average eat about 3400 mg of sodium, against the dietary guideline of 2300 mg per day. Higher sodium intake has been linked with various forms of cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure or hypertension. As per WHO, around 700 million adults have hypertension and are living without medications. Health officials have often contributed that replacing such snacks with nut mixes can fulfill various purposes. Most of the nut mixes have monounsaturated fats, with plenty of proteins and necessary micronutrients.
Hectic lifestyles coupled with meal customization offerings have been a ready driver

In systematic research, it was ascertained that the blood pressure during the pandemic years increased by an average of 1.1-2.5 mmHg.

Unemployment rates have been immensely narrowing down, which in turn increases the working population. Snacking has been a key feature of stress, and in a survey, it was found that a strong correlation exists between stress and snacking. However, employees and employers have become extensively aware of such diets on people’s health, hence, vending machines are now loaded with veggies, nut mixes of almonds and cashews, and various other forms of support.

Global Dried Cashew Nut Snack Market Challenges
A substantial growth noticed in other forms of plant proteins and other forms of new product launches has impeded the market growth
Plant-based proteins have been in immense demand-however, product innovations have been shifting their course every now and then, and there appears no clear winner. For example, almonds are an extremely rich form of mono-unsaturated fatty acids- which are an excellent nutrient composition for protecting and extending a healthy heart life. Furthermore, stiff price competition exists between the plant-based offerings. For example, a 1000 gram of roasted and salted almond often ranges between INR 950-INR1100. However, a salted cashew snack would often cost anywhere between INR 1000-INR1200. Hence, it can be ascertained that stiff competition exists between the nut snacks market. Additionally, as per various secondary sources, it was ascertained that around 41% of all new nut snacks or other introductions were based on almonds. Thereby, high competition between snacks would deplete the demand or would make the marketers struggle.
