What Factors are Triggering Demand for Bakery Ingredients?

“Increased Consumption of Convenience Food Driving Bakery Ingredient Sales”

Demand for convenience food has been gradually increasing as customers' living standards have increased and their lifestyle patterns are becoming busier. Bakery products, desserts and fast food products have all seen a surge in demand as a result of this increased convenience meal need.

Growth in demand for convenience food can be observed more in the United States, China, South Africa, and some other nations as per capita food expenditure gradually rises in tandem with per capita income. A major aspect of convenience foods is the food ingredients that go into them to provide the necessary organoleptic properties required, as well as to facilitate a longer-than-average shelf life so as to appeal more to consumers.

  • Growth in demand for bakery and confectionery food directly correlates to increased demand for bakery enzymes, bakery flavors, baking colors, and specialty baking ingredients.
  • Increase in demand for other types of bakery ingredients such as natural and synthetic gums and starches can be attributed to increased demand for healthy convenience foods such as protein bars and different kinds of nutrition bars.

“Rising Worldwide Per Capita Consumption of Baking Products”

Bakery products and bread consumption has been steadily increasing around the world. Europe is among the dominating markets for bakery products due to rise in per capita consumption in the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and Spain. Around 65% of the flour processed in the U.K. is used for the manufacturing of bread products, with the remaining 35% used in a large variety of food products.

Also, the confluence of factors such as increasing disposable income, rise in urbanization, and popularity of the Western lifestyle has been contributing to the growth in the sales of baking kits with ingredients and shortening ingredients for baking in developing regions, such as Asian countries.

  • According to the Federation of Bakers Ltd, in the U.K., bread was among the most popular item purchased in 2017/18 with more than 99% of households buying them.

“Healthy Bakery Ingredients Used as Alternative for Traditional Bakery Ingredients”

Consumers have become more conscious regarding food safety, the ingredients present in their food, and the required daily allowance. Consumers across the world are becoming health conscious and are gradually turning toward bakery products that contain no or less sugar, are gluten-free, are free from chemicals, etc.

Manufacturers are continuously innovating new products and flavoring in baking products and baking improvisers targeting the health and wellness of consumers.

  • For instance, EFCO Products, Inc., while tapping into the current market trend for less sugar in baked goods, is using an alternative to high fructose corn syrup in its bakery ingredient products. Consumers in Singapore are turning toward reduced sugar chocolate confectionery and dark chocolate due to their antioxidant properties.

What’s Stunting Market Growth Potential of Baking Ingredients?

“Highly Fragmented Market for Bakery Ingredient Solutions”

In recent years, many medium-sized and large businesses have emerged into the bakery ingredients market, globally. Additionally, small bakeries, artisanal bakeries, and home-based bakeries exist in the market. In urban areas, large and international outlets are becoming more popular, while in rural areas, domestic and local bakeries are preferred.

This highly fragmented and highly disproportionate behavior in the market is likely to restrain the growth of the Southeast Asia bakery ingredients market.

  • In the European and North American markets, many acquisitions and mergers in the bakery sector have helped the industry prosper. For example, the acquisition of Au Bon Pain and Dunkin’ Donuts franchise by Sub Sri Thai Plc.
