Flourishing business tourism sector is a major factor driving the growth of in-flight catering services industry. Although the recent COVID-19 pandemic has majorly affected the aviation landscape, the airline industry is estimated to recover considerably as soon as the situation improves as passenger traffic will again surge, which in turn will fuel the market size.

Food plays a major role in the aviation industry. The sensory abilities of passengers such as sight, smell and taste are affected by low humidity and high air pressure in flight. Moreover, the movement of passengers within the aircraft is also limited. Superior quality food becomes vital in improving the passenger experience. Various airlines advertise themselves through their in-flight food services, and hence provide high-quality food & beverage to passengers on boards, thereby augmenting the market outlook.
