The market is projected to record a cumulative growth rate of approximately 4.2% over 2020-2026.

Hectic lifestyle and busy work schedule has resulted in massive demand for fast food across the globe in the recent years. Apparently, fast foods can be easily prepared, are cost-effective, and loved by individuals belonging to different age-group of population. With market for fast food across the globe influenced by customer preference and demographics, it is likely to gain traction over the ensuing years. The global expansion of fast food chains such as MacDonald and Domino globally will contribute majorly towards the overall market size in the years to come.  However, excessive intake of fast food has reportedly caused health issues such as obesity and type 2 diabetes, thereby creating hurdles in the path of fast food market expansion in the recent years.
