They are generally enjoyed as a snack or dessert, especially on special occasions like birthdays, weddings, and holidays. 

GCC Bakery Products Market Trends:

The increasing consumption of fast food items and convenient snacking options on account of busy lifestyles and the rising working population represents one of the major factors driving the demand for bakery products in the GCC region. Moreover, the growing health consciousness among individuals is resulting in an increasing inclination towards high fiber, premium quality bakery products that are made without preservatives and artificial colors or flavors. In addition, product manufacturers operating in the region are introducing vegan and organic variants made with low-calorie and multigrain ingredients to expand their consumer base and gain a competitive advantage. Apart from this, the rising awareness about the adverse health effects of synthetic additives in conventional bakery items is catalyzing the adoption of bakery products with clean labels. Furthermore, the growing adoption of a low-fat diet due to the surging prevalence of heart diseases, obesity, and other lifestyle and chronic medical conditions is creating a positive outlook for the market in the region. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 14.6 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.07% during 2024-2032.
