The Indonesia canned food Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.30% during the forecast period to reach US$831.718 million by 2027, from US$507.842 million in 2020.

Canning is a method of preserving food for a longer time by using air-tight containers. The canning process varies by product but usually, it involves three steps – processing, sealing, and heating the cans to kill harmful bacteria and prevent spoilage. Commonly used canned foods include fruits, vegetables, beans, soups, meats, and seafood. The major advantage of canned food is that it is affordable, convenient to carry, and has a longer shelf life. In recent times canned food consumption is increasing among people particularly working people as canned food requires less time to prepare, provides a nutrient-based diet, and has longer storage potential.

An increase in demand for canned seafood is expected to boost the market for Indonesia's canned food market.

The increase in demand for seafood has boosted the market for canned food in Indonesia. Indonesia is the world’s second-largest producer of seafood as it has rich marine biodiversity which makes it easier to procure marine animals namely fish and further boosts the demand for canned fish foods domestically and globally. The main marine capture fisheries that boost the demand for canned seafood are skipjack tunas, eastern little tunas, shrimps, and other fishes in Indonesia. The ornamental fish culture which is dominated by freshwater ornamental fishes such as koi, comet, betta, koki, and Arowana is further boosting the demand for canned fish foods. Investment from foreign entities and institutions is boosting the demand for fish and other sea foods. For example, World Bank partnered with the Government of Indonesia to launch the Coastal Fisheries Initiative Challenge Fund worth US$1 million, in October 2020. The partnership enabled private sector investment in sustainable fisheries.

However, the increase in the use of preservatives, processing, and heating techniques in canned seafood for longer shelf life is expected to hinder the market for Indonesia's canned food.

COVID-19 Insights

COVID-19 had a significant positive impact on the Indonesian canned food Market. Demand for canned foods and ready-to-cook foods increased during the pandemic as people shifted their preference for nutritious food that takes less time to prepare. Canned food provided customers with options to store a minimum amount of food for a long duration and in larger quantities which helped them in facing the food shortage crisis as a result of lockdown restrictions. Indonesia's cultural preference is for rice as a staple diet. During the lockdown, scarcity of rice in the country increased the prices of rice which affected the diet of lower-class individuals making them shift towards canned foods. However, social distancing norms impacted the malls, hypermarkets, and convenience store sales in Indonesia and led to the shutting down of many hypermarkets. For example, Hero Group witnessed a decline in sales in 2020 and closed all its giant stores in Indonesia in July 2021. Some existing retailers such as Matahari Putra Prima collaborated with online channels to distribute and sell food across Indonesia, making it accessible to all individuals.
