Global Free-from Food Market to Grow at 6.8% During 2024-2032, Propelled by Increasing Health Consciousness Among Consumers

April 12, 2023 | Food & Beverages

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “­­Free-from Food Market Report by Type (Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Lactose-Free, and Others), End Product (Bakery & Confectionary, Dairy-free Foods, Snacks, Beverages, and Others), Distribution Channel (Supermarkets & Hypermarkets, Convenience Stores, Online Channels, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global free-from food market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% during 2024-2032. Free-from foods are a range of food products that are free from certain ingredients and allergens, such as gluten, soy, dairy, nuts, and eggs. These food items are marketed to individuals with specific sensitivities, allergies, intolerances, or diseases, as well as to those following specific dietary practices such as veganism. They are grown according to stringent guidelines and standards without using synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, and other chemicals. Free-from foods are a subset of clean-label edible products that benefit overall health and well-being. Some standard goods include fruits, vegetables, meat, cereals, pulses, spices, and dairy products that do not contain gluten, lactose, allergens, preservatives, artificial colors, palm oil, sodium, and genetically modified organism (GMOs). 

Global Free-from Food Market Trends:

The global free-from food market is primarily driven by the rising health consciousness among the masses and the expanding demand for clean-label food products made with naturally sourced and organic ingredients. Moreover, the widespread prevalence of various lifestyle diseases, including diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disorders, is fuelling the demand for healthy food items, such as free-from food, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Besides this, escalating concerns about the adverse health effects of synthetic additives, preservatives, and GMOs incorporated in traditionally processed food products are creating a positive outlook for the market. In addition to this, the rising influence of social media on individual behavior and various celebrity endorsements promoting gluten-free, vegan, and low-calorie diets are aiding in market expansion. Furthermore, the introduction of clean-label products with simple ingredients of high nutritional value and functional benefits, long shelf lives, and product transparency in attractive packaging is propelling the market growth. Other factors, including favorable regulations by food safety authorities, evolving living standards, inflating disposable income levels, and rising expenditure capacities of consumers on health and wellness food products, are contributing to the market growth.
