Baking ingredients are foods that help maintain freshness, sweetness and flavor; improved shelf life; and increased protein content in baked goods. These commodities are available in various grades in the market and are considered the major source of human nutrition in the world. Baking ingredients have been used since ancient times and are of prime importance today because nothing can be baked without them. The choice of ingredients and preparations determines the taste and texture of the cooked food product. Demand for products, such as bread and biscuits, is growing at a remarkable rate and is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the growth of the global ingredients market in the coming years. In the mature baking ingredient markets in North America and Europe, the demand for ingredients that are healthy and contain little or no artificial ingredients is growing massively.

The novel coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the entire food and beverage industry, of which the baking industry is a part. This pandemic has resulted in production shutdowns and disruptions in supply chain also affecting the economy. 

In early 2020, sales of disinfectants, paper goods, toilet paper, and hand sanitizers, were in high demand. Edible products, such as meat products, bread, and many other shops went bankrupt because of an insufficient supply of cakes and many bakeries closed due to lack of manpower. The disruption of the logistics facilities due to the lockdown created more problems in the market as consumers did not receive the quality products, which negatively affected the market. But in some regions the demand experienced spike. The Covid-19 lockdowns imposed in various countries led to a surge in demand for baking ingredients such as cocoa powder, baking soda, and other spices, as consumers stuck at home have actively switched to baking. Bakery raw material manufacturers and retailers such as Cargill (USA) and Kerry Group Plc (Ireland) report that sales of these products have increased significantly since the blockade compared to the same period last year. With the recent influx of international cafes and bakery chains, dining on the go is becoming more and more popular.

Another factor that also affects the market is the lack of availability of raw materials, so the production of products is not suitable. Manufacturers of baking ingredients also face similar problems, such as labor shortages, supply chain disruptions, and unavailability of raw materials. Due to these issues, small bakers in the unorganized segment are most affected. However, over time, the government began to allow shops to reopen. Demand for bakery products, especially bread and other products, has increased, as they are essential products, used in the daily diet, mainly for breakfast and evening snack. As a result, demand for bakery products increased from households. On the other hand, the catering sector faces a market decline for bakery products which are considered as one of the fastidious products of the catering sector.

Growth in the frozen bakery product market is also expected to boost consumption of baking ingredients during the forecast period. The increasing acceptance of frozen baked goods is due to factors such as convenience, speed of cooking, availability of products, and low cost. The growth of the bakery ingredient market is also supported by increasing demand from coffee shops and large and small grocery chains. Frozen bakery products are expected to have potential demand in emerging markets such as India and China due to rising disposable income and the increasing population purchasing power parity (PPP) of these countries.
