Statista forecasts that revenue in the Food market in Malaysia will amount to $51.08 billion in 2023 and grow annually by 7.95%. The World Bank forecasts that Malaysia will make the leap to a high-income economy between 2024 and 2028. 20- to 40-year-olds make up a third of the population and are a key demographic for the Food and Drink market, which, when combined with Malaysia’s multiracial nature, creates varied demand for food and drink among consumers.
Food retailers in Malaysia continue to rapidly develop with the rise of premium stores and convenience outlets for consumers. E-commerce is also a growing segment, with e-commerce users expected to reach 18 million by 2025, growing at 13% annually until then.
