Bread: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) February 25, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – Bread represents a staple food in many countries worldwide. Consumption of bread is high in Europe and the Americas. Higher per capita consumption and penetration of bread in these markets offers little room for further growth in terms of volume. For struggling bread producers in saturated markets with flat growth, the focus on new innovative product development will offer opportunities for growth. In developing countries such as China and India, bread consumption is supported by the rising preference for convenience foods. Rising income, consumerism of food products, westernization of food habits and innovation in packaged foods are factors driving consumption of convenience food in these markets.
Volume sales of industrial white bread are under significant pressure in Europe and North America. Market saturation, rising popularity of alternate breakfast options, and consumer backlash on additives and carbohydrates present in factory-produced bread, represent few of the factors responsible for declining consumption patterns in these markets. Growth in these markets, in the coming years, will however come from innovation in healthy artisan ingredients, and the development of carbohydrates and gluten-free products. High protein breads fortified with omega-3, antioxidants, fibre and iron will witness strong growth in demand. Demand is also expected to grow strongly for brown bread, whole wheat bread, and multi grain bread, among others. Growing concerns over the nutritional risks posed by commercial production of bread using highly refined flour is driving the emphasis on bread made from organic whole wheat flour.
As stated by the new market research report on Bread, Europe represents the largest regional market worldwide. The region is home to some of the leading bread consuming nations worldwide, such as Turkey and Germany. Asia-pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with dollar sales projected to grow at a compounded annual rate of 6.6% over the analysis period. China, India, Hong Kong and Malaysia represent lucrative markets in the region driven by strong economic growth, rising standards of living, increase in the number of women in the workforce and a parallel reduction in time for making elaborate meals and breakfast.
