NEW YORK, March 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- While potato chips continue to be the big revenue driver for salty snacks, strong growth in the ready-to-eat popcorn/caramel corn category and with alternative fruit and vegetable (i.e., non-potato) chips led the salty snack segment in terms of sales growth in 2015. Both of these categories fit nicely with the fast-growing trend of better-for-you snackingwhile also providing the sense of indulgent satisfaction most snackers still crave. The $22.5 billion salty snack market in 2015 also saw an incredible proliferation of flavors appearing on snacks hitting the shelves, from unique tastes such as Tom Yum soup on pretzels, to more traditional but almost new again sweet and salty combinations on traditionally savory snacks such as potato chips and tortilla chips. These trends will continue to be crucial for marketers to embrace over the next five years, with the increasing number of snacking instances helping to push the salty snack market to $27.0 billion by 2020.
