Bread, by application, is estimated to hold the largest share in the baking ingredients market during the forecast period

The bread segment is projected to dominate the market by application. Bread is a staple food in most regions. There’s a variety of bread available in the market in different forms. The bread products available are categorized under white bread, wholegrain and brown bread, and specialty bread. The growing health-consciousness of consumers and the subsequent increase in demand for wholegrain or specialty bread has resulted in a decline in the demand for white bread in most markets. The flour used in the production of brown bread consists of crude fiber and a whole grain content of about 85.0%. Wholemeal bread is made from whole wheat grain and does not involve refining. This sector also includes wheat germ bread that consists of processed wheat germ. The market for these bread types is expected to grow, owing to the rising health awareness among consumers.

Dry, by form, is estimated to account for the largest market share during the forecast period

The dry baking ingredients market holds the largest market in 2020 and is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the use of more dry ingredients, such as flour, baking powder, baking soda, yeast, sugar, and salt, in baking than liquid ingredients. Baking mixes have become popular which contain all dry ingredients and can be used for various applications, such as bread, cakes, waffles, muffins, and pizza crusts.
