Frozen Yogurt Stores in the US Industry Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld

Los Angeles, CA, Nov 14, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- The Frozen Yogurt Stores industry has grown at a rapid pace over the five years to 2013, despite the recession. Driven by consumers' increasing health consciousness and the emergence of tart-flavored frozen yogurt, IBISWorld estimates that revenue has climbed at an average annual rate of 21.0% during the period. Growth was particularly strong in 2011 and 2012, as the economy emerged from the recession; per capita disposable income inched upwards and a number of new franchisers ramped up their growth aspirations. According to IBISWorld Industry Analyst Andy Brennan, "Growth is expected to temper slightly in 2013 as the Frozen Yogurt Stores industry reaches saturation point, however, industry revenue is still expected to advance at an impressive 22.6% to $1.5 billion." The health trend, highlighted by the declining per capita consumption of sugar and sweeteners, has helped propel the industry over the past five years. Frozen yogurt, which is a low-calorie, nonfat alternative to ice cream, has been favored by an expanding demographic. In fact, major player Red Mango states that part of its location strategy includes setting up shops in college towns because students are typically more health conscious than the average American. The health-driven expansion has also driven demand for self-serve frozen yogurt stores, since they allow consumers to limit their consumption based on their dietary needs and concerns.


Nevertheless, industry growth has not been without its hiccups. As the recession set in and consumer confidence plummeted, profit suffered. "Profit margins will come under increasing pressure over the next five years, as industry competition intensifies and the larger chains increase their store counts," says Brennan. Already, a number of independent frozen yogurt stores have exited the industry, due to intense competition.

IBISWorld projects that health concerns and consumption patterns will continue to drive industry growth through the five years to 2018. However, industry revenue will grow at a slower rate than in the previous five years, as the industry becomes saturated. Revenue is forecast to grow by the end of 2018. As more frozen yogurt stores enter the industry, price competition will intensify, leading to slower enterprise growth.
