Additionally, continually changing consumer lifestyles, increasing income, and the growing acceptance of frozen finger chips in families and the foodservice sector have been increasing the demand for french fries.

Rapid urbanization and changing consumer habits, especially in the developing economies are contributing significantly to the proliferation of fast-food chains. Such fast food outlets are comparatively cheaper than restaurants, which is a significant factor driving the growth of such joints besides boosting the global sales of frozen finger chips. Aside from the growing popularity of western cuisine, other important factors driving the market growth include the hectic lifestyles of the global workforce and their increasing purchasing power.
Rising Health-Related Issues
A few restraints and challenges, such as health-related issues are likely to hamper the market growth. The higher consumption of fried potatoes increases the risk of chronic diseases, such as obesity, hypertension, and diabetes, which are also influential risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, French fries fried at too high temperatures are likely to contain trans fats, leading to an increased risk of premature death. People who eat French fries more than twice a week have a higher chance of dying. These factors are the potential restraints hampering the growth of the global frozen finger chips (frozen French fries) market.
Impact of COVID-19 in the industry
Since the COVID-19 virus epidemic in December 2019, the disease has spread to almost every country on the planet, prompting the World Health Organization to declare it a public health emergency. Global impacts of COVID-19 are already being felt by the Frozen Finger Chips market, which will bear the brunt of the pandemic in the coming years. Due to the spread of coronavirus, complete lockdowns and stay-at-home regulations have been enforced by the governments of different countries across the globe. Since the eruption of Covid -19, fast-food sales have fallen sharply. Moreover, the cancellation of all sports events like basketball, baseball, cricket, etc., has massively reduced the number of places where french fries are served. Even sports bars where customers would have munched on fries’ baskets as they observed their favorite teams play are now closed.
Foodservice occupy the largest share of the Global Frozen Finger Chips Sales Market

The reasons can be attributed to the expansion of fast-food chains worldwide, growing hectic lifestyles, and increasing purchasing power of the working population. Furthermore, the growing popularity of western cuisines has fostered the acceptance of this segment.
