Prediction: Organic foods and beverages market to reach $320 billion by 2025

The growing popularity of non-GMO products is expected to drive growth of organic sales around the globe, an Irish market-research firm says.

The global organic food and beverage market is expected to reach $320.5 billion by 2025, up from $77.4 billion in 2015, according to Dublin, Ireland’s Research and Markets.

Growing popularity of non-GMO products among consumers, owing to the health benefits associated with their consumption, is expected to drive demand over the forecast period. The company's report, Organic Foods And Beverages Market Analysis By Product ... , was released in April.

Fruits and vegetables dominated the global organic food market, accounting for more than 37 percent of revenue in 2015. Revenue by 2025 is expected to be more than $110 billion.

However, increasing consumption of organic meat and poultry products pushed that segment to the top of the growth list. Those sales are expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13 percent during the forecast period.

The beverage market, which is expected to pass $55 billion by 2025, is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 13. 1 percent. Non-dairy beverages such as rice, soymilk, and oat beverages accounted for more than 33 percent of the organic beverages market in 2015.

Research and Markets predicts that coffee and tea will be the fastest-growing sector of the beverage market, with a CAGR of more than 15 percent between 2016 and 2025. However, beer and wine is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.5 percent over the forecast period, owing to increasing global economic conditions and high consumption of a broad range of flavored beverages.

The industry in Asia Pacific is projected to experience the fastest growth over the forecast period, which will result in the area making up more than 12 percent of global revenue by 2025. Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest growth because of a growing agriculture sector coupled with robust domestic demand.

In North America, the U.S. is the largest organic market with sales of more than $40 billion in 2015.
