Market Overview

The global bakery ingredients market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.12% during the forecast period, (2022-2027).

COVID-19 has resulted in a devastating impact on the bakery ingredients market in two main ways: by directly affecting production and demand, and by creating supply chain and market disruption. The pandemic has affected bakery players in different ways. With foodservice representing as much as a huge dig of their sales, frozen bakery players have seen reduced orders as food consumption changes from restaurants to home kitchens. The post-pandemic consumer will likely demand new and better options. In this scenario, improved nutrition is expected to gain consumer and government attention as a way of preventing diseases and boosting immunity providing an opportunity for companies to focus on innovation. Such factors create ample room to rebalance the bakery ingredients industry even in the face of persistent COVID-19 restrictions.

Over the medium term, the rising demand for convenience food and consumer preference for attractive, tasty & textured delicacies, easy accessibility, and lower price are expected to increase the demand for demand for bakery ingredients. Evolving retail landscape of retail bakery products has been one of the crucial factors for the expansion of the market over the last few years. The market witnessed a high consumption rate in the categories of cakes, pastries, pies, scones, bread, biscuits, and cereals in the developed markets of North America and Western Europe.

The trend of developing healthy alternatives is possible owing to the provision of adding fibre. Also, the enhancement of the nutritional level in bakery products has gained momentum. The incorporation of functional ingredients, such as omega-3, multigrain, probiotics, multivitamins, and phytosterols in bakery products, adds additional nutritional value. However, stringent regulations and international quality standards are expected to slow down the growth of the market.
