In 2018, there were 4.2 billion people living in urban areas around the world, up from 751 million in 1950, according to the United Nations World Urbanization Report. This means that nearly 55% of the world's population currently resides in urban areas, and by 2050, that number is projected to rise to 68%. As a result, compared to consumers in rural regions, urban consumers have access to a considerably greater selection and better availability of food.

The demand for convenience food products is also developing quickly in tandem with urbanization, mostly as a result of changing lifestyles, an increase in nuclear families, a rise in the percentage of working women, and a reduction in the amount of time spent on meal preparation. Due to their portability and lengthy shelf lives, frozen bakery products have a strong argument for their market to increase at an accelerated rate.

Traditional baking is being replaced by Bake-Off technology in the business (BOT). Unfermented frozen dough (UFD) partially baked frozen bread (PBF), and partially baked unfrozen bread are the three main BOTs (PBUF). In particular for the hotel and catering industries, frozen semi-baked items and ready-to-bake goods are significant product categories for the food business. The majority of bakery goods, such as bread, rolls, and bagels, are sold in ready-to-thaw form, whereas croissants and pastries are sold in ready-to-bake form. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada predicted that 4.1 thousand metric tonnes of frozen baked goods would be sold in retail in 2021. This was an increase of 100 metric tonnes compared to numbers forecast for 2020, and it represents an increase of about 8% compared to predictions from 2017. Thus, it is anticipated that this aspect will accelerate frozen bakery market revenue.
