Market Dynamics

Driver: Growing Korean cuisine tourism to encourage eating behaviours

People who travel for food are exposed to a diverse range of culinary traditions, including Korean cuisine based on kimchi. After trying kimchi for the first time, tourists frequently grow addicted to it and look for it when they return home, raising demand in local markets. Tourists are frequently motivated to try new foods by their travel experiences and cultural immersion, leading them to become food ambassadors for items such as kimchi. As they tell their stories, at-home interest in and demand for these unfamiliar dishes grows. The popularity of Korean eateries in tourist destinations has played a crucial role in the worldwide popularity of kimchi.

Restraint: Regulations governing kimchi products worldwide

Many countries have strict limitations on the importation of goods such as kimchi. These recommendations cover labelling regulations, quality standards, and adherence to specific health and safety protocols. Compliance with these standards may be difficult for kimchi exporters, especially for smaller businesses or those located in areas where meeting these requirements may be difficult. Some countries impose severe limitations on the components found in food products. If any of the regularly used ingredients in traditional kimchi recipes do not comply with these standards, it may be difficult to produce or export kimchi in conformity with local legislation. The exact bacteria and environmental conditions required for the fermentation process used to make kimchi may not meet regional fermentation norms or requirements in different countries.

Opportunity: Optimum distribution channel

The kimchi market expansion is taking advantage of a wide range of distribution channels by being available both online and offline. As a result, a vast number of distribution channels are available, creating a substantial possibility for the global industry to expand. This technique expands market reach while meeting the convenience and preferences of a varied group of consumers. Collaborating with traditional offline channels such as restaurants, supermarkets, and grocery stores provides access to pre-existing networks of customers who prefer in-person shopping experiences. E-commerce platforms provide access to a larger audience that is not restricted by area. It allows people to easily order and have items delivered directly to their homes, which is especially handy for those who are busy or shopping for specialty products like kimchi.
