Key Market Trends

Demand For Bakery Products in The Country is Boosting The Market

China is one of the major markets for bakery products. The rising popularity of ‘snacking-on-the-go’ products also makes China a potential market for baked snacks. In addition, a growing number of Western restaurants offering baked goods in cities of the second and third ranges are also emerging rapidly, giving an overall boost to the demand for bakery products. ​The rapid expansion of artisanal bakeries in the last few years made Chinese consumers opt for fresh baked goods, such as cakes and bread. Emulsifiers play a significant role in bakery products, where the absence of emulsifiers in the baked products will indicate dry, stale, tough, and tasteless features. The emulsifiers perform critical functions in baked goods, such as protein strengthening, starch complexing, and aeration hence will result in the growth of the market.
