Key Market Trends

Growing Demand for Bakery Products in India

Emerging economies of Asia-Pacific represent larger, untapped potential for organized development of bakery products, owing to the rising disposable incomes, urbanization, and the demand for western-style diet. Bakery in India is a traditional activity. Bakery manufacturers in India can be differentiated into the three broad segments of bread, biscuits, and cakes. The growth in baked goods in the last few years is supported by the value growth in bread, whereas cakes and pastries have experienced comparatively lower sales growth. There is a rising popularity of premium bread amongst the rapidly aging population. Muffins, puffs and other savory products are also gaining popularity as younger populations often visit independent bakeries to relish snacks. 


Packaged Cake is Emerging as the Fastest Growing Market

The packaged cake segment has been holding a very low market share since 2015 in the India packaged bakery market. However, it is the fastest growing category, due to the development of vegan packaged cakes. India being a very diverse country, with approximately 40% of its population being vegetarian, the introduction of vegan cakes is expected to contribute a major chunk to the market growth. Frontier Biscuit Factory Pvt Ltd Is one of the popular companies in the northern part of India, with a rich product portfolio in the vegan packaged cake market.

The major market is dominated by rural and semi-urban population in areas, where convenience stores and supermarket/hypermarkets gain high tractions.
