"South Korea - The Future of Foodservice to 2021", published by GlobalData provides extensive insight and analysis of the South Korean Foodservice market over the next five years (2016-2021) and acts as a vital point of reference for operators or suppliers.

Despite an economic dip, South Korea’s foodservice market experienced moderate value growth between 2014 and 2016 at a CAGR of 3.5%. Such growth has encouraged a number of international brands to enter the market, resulting in a high degree of consolidation. This is most evident across the QSR market, in which the top five chain operators generated a combined 73.1% of total channel sales value in 2016. For many, out-of-home foodservices remain an indispensable part of everyday life. Owing to small living spaces, younger urbanites often utilize foodservice outlets as an extension of their living rooms; this is particularly true of coffee and tea shops.

The report includes -
- Overview of South Korea's macro-economic landscape: Detailed analysis of current macro-economic factors and their impact on the South Korean foodservice market including GDP per capita, consumer price index, population growth and annual household income distribution.

- The increased use of mobile technology has allowed operators to maximize efficiency and value, as well as offering consumers ‘smart experiences’. This is particularly prominent within the QSR market, with operators seeking to target time-poor but tech savvy urbanites.
- Low birth rates, combined with longer life expectancies, have boosted the importance of the country’s elderly population.
- A ‘Westernization’ of the foodservice market has seen operators increasingly feature steaks, grills and American style pizzas as part of their menus. This trend has been primarily driven by younger generations, with these products being associated with aspirational American ‘lifestyles’.
