Global Bakery Products Market Trends:
The changing consumer dietary preferences and the escalating demand for convenience foods represent the primary factors driving the market growth. Additionally, there has been a significant shift toward processed, packaged, and ready-to-eat baked products due to the rising consumer disposable incomes, improving living standards, and rapid urbanization. In line with this, the increasing number of artisanal bakery shops and patisseries offering different varieties of baked goods has augmented the product demand. Furthermore, with the growing health consciousness among the masses, the leading manufacturers are introducing low-calorie bakery products containing multi-grains or whole wheat and low trans-fat content. Along with this, recent product innovations, such as the launch of gluten-free, vegan, lactose-free, and high fiber product variants made using premium quality ingredients, have propelled the market growth. Besides this, the surging awareness regarding the adverse health effects of synthetic additives in conventional bakery items has accelerated the adoption of clean label, organic, and fortified bakery products. Other factors, including the expanding food and beverage industry, integration of robotics technology with the bakery processing equipment, emerging healthy snacking trend, and easy product availability via online and offline channels, are also providing a positive thrust to the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 612.4 Billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 4.0% during 2022-2027.
