Bakery Products Market Trends

  • Mounting demand for convenient food products to boost the market growth

Convenience is the primary driver for the bakery market. The fast-paced lifestyle increases the need to adopt convenient solutions in all aspects of life. Long working hours make it difficult for consumers to spend more time cooking. Thus, a hectic lifestyle boosts the consumption of ready-to-eat bakery products such as bread, cookies, cakes, tortillas, frozen pizza, and biscuits. Furthermore, high spending capacity and growing urbanization that results in a fast-paced lifestyle also play an essential role in surging the demand for convenient food. For example, in the US, doughnuts are considered anytime food and are often eaten as a meal substitute, whereas cakes are usually consumed as snacks.

Further, increasing consumer preference for convenience bakery products indirectly encourages the demand for frozen bakery products as they require less time and effort. The processed food market is driven by the increase in the need for convenience due to busy customer lifestyles. This, in turn, has led to an expansion in demand for frozen bakery products. In addition, the high growth of the frozen food industry due to the fast-growing urban households of developing countries is projected to drive the demand for frozen bakery products. The rise in per capita income and increased snacking between meals are the key factors encouraging the demand for frozen bakery products. The development of retail channels in supermarkets, hypermarkets, convenience stores, and specialty stores has enhanced the bakery products market CAGR across the globe in recent years.

Additionally, the growing trends of "natural nutrition," "healthy living," and "organic products" have significantly enhanced the demand for whole wheat, natural, light (low calorie), and additive-free bakery products. Furthermore, the increase in demand for healthy food is driving the demand for whole wheat, gluten-free, and multigrain bakery products. The increased availability of such specialized bakery products will further aid the growth of the bakery products market revenue.

  • April 2024- Fazer focuses on empowering its positions in all its markets. As a split of its approach, Fazer is contemplating merging both Baltic bakeries into one production division in Ogre in Latvia. The venture, including an innovative warehouse, additional picking processes, and renovated production, would total EUR 18 million, a substantial investment in the Baltic bakery market. Because of this change, Fazer began consultations that could cause the reduction of a maximum of 185 employees in Kaunas. Fazer Bakery Baltics is thinking of combining all production into one modern bakery in Ogre. Through this revolution, Fazer would be able to reinforce its position in the Baltic markets, guarantee competitiveness, expand product variety into new categories, and expand export sales further. Having one mutual factory together with an extended warehouse for frozen and ambient products, new picking procedures, and updated production capabilities would also enhance Fazer Bakery Baltics' supply chain efficacy, which is vital for all three Baltic markets. The investment would sum up to nearly EUR 18 million, a substantial investment in the Baltic bakery market. The Managing Director of Bakery Baltics, Anne Mere, said that the company has a strong number 2 position in the Latvian and Lithuanian markets and a number 3 position in Estonia, and their target is to empower their positions. With one updated production facility, the company will have the prospect of developing its known brands and product selections into new categories and meeting different consumer demands even better than before. The utilization of packed bread products has lowered in the Baltics for various consecutive years, and in the last year, the bakery market has dripped in volume by 2%*. Consumers have become more price-conscious, and the market is progressively campaign-driven, which has caused price competition and lower margins.
