Market Dynamics

Increase in urbanization and innovation drive the growth of this market. The rise in demand from millennials, due to the availability of in-store bakeries, also contributes to the growth. In-store bakeries reduce the gap between private brands and leading brands. Health concerns pose a threat to this market, as the fat content in pastries may lead to obesity and heart problems. Hence, to attract the health conscious population, the vendors introduced healthier varieties with less fat content. Growth in home baking is also a restraint to this market, as it reduces the demand for packaged pastries. The rising demand for freshly baked pastries can be considered as an opportunity in this market, along with an increase in online sales and new product launches.

By sales, industrial/packaged pastries, artisanal, and in-store bakeries have captured the market, with packaged pastries segment dominating the global market.

The report also discusses the market revenue by distribution channels, such as online sales, super markets and hyper markets, convenience stores, and others.
