Mobile food vehicles including food trucks, food carts, food trailers and bustaurants continue to be wheels for entrepreneurial opportunity and economic growth. The trend of mobile food vehicles transforming into and being a part of conventional brick-and-mortar restaurants is accelerating. Over the last decade, mobile food vehicles have offered a net positive to the already established restaurant industry in whichever city they have been set-up. The global mobile food vehicles market expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. On the contrary, despite rapid growth experience over the last few years, regulatory barriers appear to be hindering the growth of a once hot industry.

"Food Trucks to Dominate Throughout the Forecast Period"

Food trucks remain the preferred choice for most food vendors in the mobile food industry, accounting for majority of the market value share in 2017. The major reason behind their popularity is their range in sizes and mobility. While other variants like food carts and food trailers need a secondary vehicle in order to tow them, food trucks can commute with their own power. Thus, mobility remains the overriding factor for popularity of food trucks over other variants. On the other hand, with less space requirements, food carts incur relatively lower costs for operation (electricity & propane); thereby offering opportunity for vendors to keep prices lower than those of other mobile food vehicles.

"North America to Lead; Asia Pacific to Register Strong Growth during the Forecast Period"

In 2017, North America was the largest mobile food vehicles market worldwide, closely followed by Europe and Asia Pacific respectively. The value share of North America in the global mobile food vehicles market stood at over 40% of the global market value in the same year. This dominance can be largely credited to strong growth observed in the U.S. food truck industry over the last few years. Since recovering from the economic recession, the food truck industry in the U.S. has demonstrated an average growth of 7.5% per year. However, it is presumed that after witnessing promising and sustained growth for last five years, the food truck revenue will slow down, thereby affecting new sales of food trucks and growth of the mobile food vehicles market in the U.S.
