Bakery products are produced using dry heat in ovens, hot stones, and ashes. They include bread, biscuits, pretzels, crackers, buns, rolls, macarons, pastries, cakes, doughnuts, and pies. Bakery products are made with yeast, eggs, milk, sugar, salt, and emulsifiers. These ingredients are responsible for the characteristic flavor, texture and appearance of the products.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report. 
GCC Bakery Products Market Trends: 

The GCC bakery products market is primarily driven by the increasing influence of western food cultures and the expanding food processing industry. The rising disposable incomes, rapid urbanization and hectic lifestyles have encouraged consumers to shift toward more convenient and ready-to-eat (RTE) food products such as bakery products. With the emerging health-consciousness, there has also been a significant rise in the demand for gluten-free and natural products. This has led to the ever-increasing consumption of instant and nutritious baked goods in the form of specialized and premium products. Besides this, several manufacturers in the GCC region are shifting to local bakery products over imported products. Moreover, advancements in technology have enabled manufacturers to introduce innovative bakery products with different ingredients, flavors, shapes and sizes. Furthermore, the growing awareness among the masses about natural nutrition, healthy living, and organic products has escalated the sales of whole wheat, low-calorie, and additive-free bakery products.
