Market Dynamics:


Rising consumption of bakery products in urban areas

According to a report and data published by Statista, the sales of center stored bread for 52 weeks (about 12 months) in 2022 reached up to 3.2 billion units.

The rising consumption of bakery products, especially in urban areas, is considered one of the major drivers for the growth of the baking ingredients market. The increasing demand for convenient and quick-bites food products such as cookies, bread, and pastries supports the production and distribution of bakery items in urban areas. Bakery products are often associated with comfort food, as consumers seek pleasurable experiences with bakery items. Additionally, globalization and rising cultural influences, especially from the European region, boost bakery sales.

As the consumption of bakery items continues to grow, the key players in the bakery ingredients market will get additional opportunities to develop specialized ingredients to meet the preferences and demands of consumers.


Fluctuations in the prices of raw materials

Sugar, cocoa powder, wheat, vegetable oil, and other multiple dairy products are widely and commonly used commodities/raw materials in the bakery industry. In many parts of the world, the prices of commodities are dependent on the supply and demand ratio. For example, the production and supply of cocoa beans directly impact the prices of chocolate and cocoa powder.

For instance, according to Index Box, in June 2022, the price of cocoa powder per ton increased by 4.6% compared to the previous month (United States) while showing an average increase of 2.5% in five months. While France attained a 5.2% increase in the cocoa powder price.

The often fluctuations in the prices of such raw materials directly impact the costs of the final product. The continuously fluctuating prices of raw materials often create challenges for retailers, which affects consumer demand and product sales. In addition, fluctuations in commodity prices may create several uncertainties in the supply chain as suppliers may struggle to maintain the stability and consistency of ingredients. As commodity prices rise, it leads to higher production costs, directly impacting cost transparency with consumers.


Development of cleaner alternatives for baking ingredients

A recent study published by Michigan State University stated that significant consumption of sodium aluminum phosphate might lead to kidney diseases. In addition, multiple studies suggest that excessive consumption of sodium aluminum phosphate may negatively impact reproductive health. Sodium aluminum phosphate is widely used to prepare waffles, donuts, and other bakery products. However, while considering the significant health concerns associated with the ingredient used in bakery items and the rising number of health-conscious consumers, the global baking ingredients market is shifting its focus to developing cleaner and healthier alternative ingredients. Furthermore, fat mayonnaise, cheap vegetable oil, bleached flour, and colors are some harmful ingredients used in the baking industry. The development of new and cleaner products in the industry is observed to offer a plethora of new opportunities for the market payers in the upcoming period while boosting consumer trust in baking ingredients.

In May 2023, a prominent supplier in the baking industry, Innophos, announced the launch of a new ingredient in its Levair baking portfolio. The newly launched bakery ingredient replaces sodium aluminum phosphate. The new component contains calcium and is totally aluminum free. The new alternative in the market promises a noticeable development for the baking industry.


Regulatory hurdles

Baking ingredients are subjected to comply with all food safety regulations to ensure that their products are safe for consumption. These regulations include rules for ingredient sourcing, processing, and handling of commodities, along with the packaging instructions for baking ingredients. Few regulations may mandate strict allergen labeling on specific ingredients to make sure that consumers with allergies are informed about the potential risk of allergies. Navigating the continuously varying regulatory guidelines from the food safety departments can create a significant challenge for the market players. Achieving necessary permissions for ingredient approval could be lengthy, time-consuming, and costly. Additionally, some manufacturers may find it complicated to understand the regulations specifically for the international trade of baking ingredients, which can limit them from entering into international business.
