COVID-19 impact on the baking ingredients market

The novel coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the whole food and beverages industry, among which the bakery industry was one. This pandemic has resulted in mass production shutdowns and supply chain disruptions, which have also affected the economy.

Due to the lockdown, during the start of 2020, the sales of non-edible products, such as disinfectants, toilet paper, paper goods, and hand sanitizers, were high in demand, and the sales of edible products, such as bakery, meat products, and many others were up to the mark, as the supply of bakery was insufficient as many of the bakers have shut operations due to the shortage of labors. The disruption in logistic facilities due to the lockdown had created more issues in the market, as consumers were not getting products as per their requirements, which ultimately affected the market. Another factor that had impacted the market is the lack of raw material availability, due to which production of products was not proper. Bakery ingredient manufacturers faced the same problems like supply chain disruptions, lack of labor, and insufficient raw materials. Due to these issues, smaller bakers in the unorganized segment were the worst affected. But, as time passed, the government started allowing the reopening of the shops. The demand for bakery products, especially bread and others, took a hike, as these are the essential products, which are used in the daily diet, majorly as breakfast and evening snacks. Therefore, the demand from the household sector for bakery products has increased. On the other hand, the food services sector has faced a decline in the market for bakery products that were considered to be one of the demanding products in the foodservice sector.

Restraints: Stringent regulations and international quality standards

Baking ingredients are a mixture of various compounds and are subjected to rigorous health and safety checks based on governmental regulations in different countries. Various studies have been conducted by regulatory bodies to assess the impact of these products on human health. Based on their results, products are classified, and the daily intake allowance (DIA) has been set. International bodies such as the National Food Safety and Quality Service (SENASA), Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), World Health Organization (WHO), and Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (EU) are associated with food safety regulations. These organizations have control over the usage of different chemicals and materials used in food processing, directly or indirectly.

Opportunities: Growing trend of veganism and vegetarianism among consumers

Consumers are becoming sensitive to factors, such as health, sustainability, and social impact while making purchase decisions. The consumption of animal-based foods has raised environmental concerns. Also, some consumers have an ethical objection to using animals in food products. Consumers are encouraged to shift to veganism and vegetarianism due to factors such as animal welfare, environment, and personal health. According to the Good Food Institute, the US retail sales of plant-based foods have increased by 17%, accounting for nearly USD 3.7 billion. The largest market for plant-based foods includes plant-based milk and plant-based meat. The market for plant-based bakery products, such as vegan cake, muffins, bread, buns, is growing, which might increase the demand for vegan baking ingredients.

The baking powder and mixes segment of the baking ingredients market is projected to account for the largest share, by type

The baking powder and mixes hold the largest segment in the baking ingredients market.  Baking powder is a dry chemical leavening agent—a mixture of a carbonate or bicarbonate and a weak acid. The base and acid are prevented from reacting prematurely by the inclusion of a buffer such as cornstarch. The baking powder is used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods. It releases bubbles in the wet mixture that expands. It works by releasing carbon dioxide gas into a batter or dough through an acid-base reaction, causing bubbles in the wet mixture to expand, thus leavening the mixture.  Baking mixes are complex, ready-to-use mixtures of dry baking ingredients used to make bread, cakes, waffles, pizza dough, biscuits, and muffins. Ingredients in baking mixes may include flour, bread flour, baking powder, baking soda, yeast, sugar, and salt, depending upon the food type.
