IndexBox has just published a new report "World: Bread And Bakery Product - Market Report. Analysis and Forecast to X". Here is a summary of the report’s key findings.

Global Bread and Bakery Consumption Continues to Experience Modest Growth 

The global bread and bakery product market displayed very modest, but sustainable growth throughout the period under review, increasing from X tonnes in 2007, to X tonnes in 2016. Bread and bakery constitute staple food products, therefore their consumption, as expected, remains stable. In value terms, consumption stood at $X in 2016, fluctuating noticeably over the period under review. This figure reflects the total revenue of producers and importers (excluding logistics costs, retail marketing costs, and retailers’ margins, which will be included in the final consumer price). Given the immutability of the consumption volume in physical terms, the fluctuations in the market value were largely attributed to changes in prices; these depend on market factors, such as changes in the price of grain as a basic raw material for the bread and bakery sector. 

The U.S. Remains the Most Bread Consuming Country, but China Emerged as the Fastest-Growing Market

Based on the results for 2016, the countries with the highest consumption were the U.S. (X tonnes), China (X tonnes), Russia (X tonnes), the UK (X tonnes), Germany (X tonnes), Egypt (X tonnes) and Italy (X tonnes), together accounting for approximately X% of global consumption. 

The highest annual rates of growth in terms of bread and bakery product consumption from 2007 to 2016 were recorded in China, with a +X% growth, the UK and Egypt, with a +X% and +X% growth, respectively. Consequently, China saw its share of the global consumption surged from X% in 2007 to X% in 2016. The shares of the other countries remained relatively unchanged over the period under review.

Amongst the leading consuming countries, high levels of per capita consumption were recorded in the UK (X kg/year), Spain (X kg/year), Italy (X kg/year), Germany (X kg/year), Russia (X kg/year) and France (X kg/year). U.S. per capita consumption was estimated to be at the slightly lower level of X kg/year; this was still was higher than the world average of X kg/year - more than twofold. 

By contrast, China (X kg/year) and India (X kg/year) recorded poor figures in bread and bakery product consumption. This, however, may be an underestimated figure, because a large portion of bread-like product consumption may originate from home or small street bakeries, which are not covered by the appropriate statistics. Equally, consumption in China and India increased steadily over the period from 2007-2016. In China, the rise in consumption is mainly spurred by confectionary products and sweet-type bakery items, as opposed to the traditional bread. This can also be explained by an enhanced demand for confectionary products, namely gingerbread, over the seasonal holidays. 

Global Bread and Bakery Consumption Is Set to Retain Its Measured Growth

Bread and bakery products constitute one of the most popular items in the consumer’s shopping basket. Demand for bread, therefore, is set to remain stable; the increasing global population and the gradual rise in household income in developing countries constitute the two key factors driving demand. 

At the same time, in developed countries, the focus will be on low-sugar, gluten-free bread and bakery products that contain minimal levels of harmful carbohydrates. In contrast, in the developing world, the bakery segment is set to see further expansion, due to increased household income, traditional holidays with lots of bakeries consumed, and the expansion of retail trade in packed products both from local and transnational companies.  

Overall, market performance is forecast to retain its current trend, with an anticipated CAGR of +X% for the period from 2017 to X, which is expected to lead the market volume to X tonnes by X.

Bread and Bakery Output Recorded a Modest Increase 

The production of bread and bakery products was estimated at X tonnes in 2016, increasing very modestly but robustly from 2007-2016, with an average annual growth rate of +X%.

Bread and bakery manufacturing is widespread worldwide. The countries with the largest output of bread and bakery products were the U.S. (X tonnes), China (X tonnes), Russia (X tonnes), Germany (X tonnes), the UK (X tonnes) and Egypt (X tonnes); overall, these countries accounted for X% of the global output. Equally, it should be mentioned that significant volumes of bread and bakery-type products can be produced both at home, or directly at the points of sale; these amounts may be inaccurately reflected, or simply fail to be incorporated in official statistics. 

China (+X% per year), the UK (+X% per year) and Egypt (+X% per year) indicated the most notable rates of growth in terms of bread and bakery production from 2007-2016. The other three global leaders (the U.S., Russia and Germany) indicated relatively flat trend patterns, while in Italy, a small decline by -X% annually on average was recorded with regard to bread and bakery output.

Most of the Demand for Bread and Bakery Worldwide Is Covered by Domestic Suppliers 

In 2016, exports accounted for only X% of the global bread and bakery product output, with an increase by +X percentage points from 2007. The relatively low trade intensity can be explained by the fact that due to the specific nature of bread and bakery items and the requirement for product freshness, the demand for bread and bakery products is largely met by local production. On the other hand, in a number of countries, especially in Europe, a significant proportion of product items are sent for export; this refers largely to dried items and is supported by technological advances in terms of packaging and storage. 

Bread and Bakery Product Exports Posted Moderate Gains

In 2016, the volume of global exports of bread and bakery products totaled X tonnes, which equated to $X. In physical terms, the volume of global exports posted robust gains, increasing steadily at an average annual rate of +X% from 2007-2016. In value terms, the trend pattern also remained positive, but it was subject to somewhat noticeable fluctuations over the last three years, reflecting the unstable raw material prices, mainly the prices for cereals. 

Germany (X tonnes), France (X tonnes), Belgium (X tonnes), the U.S. (X tonnes), the Netherlands (X tonnes), Canada (X tonnes) and Mexico (X tonnes) were the main global suppliers of bread and bakery products, with a combined share of X% of global exports. From 2007 to 2016, Mexico (+X% per year), the Netherlands (+X% per year) and the U.S. (+X% per year) were the fastest growing suppliers amongst the major exporters. Despite this, the share of Mexico in terms of global exports increased only from X% in 2007, to X% in 2016; the shares of the other countries remained relatively stable over the same period.

The U.S., the UK, France and Germany Remain the Largest Bread and Bakery Importers

The volume of global imports totaled X tonnes, which equaled $X in 2016. The import dynamic was generally in line with exports: this trade flows globally complement each other. 

In 2016, the U.S. (X tonnes), the UK (X tonnes), France (X tonnes) and Germany (X tonnes) constituted the main destinations for bread and bakery product imports, together making up X% of the total volume.

Amongst the major importing countries, the U.S. (+X% per year) indicated the highest annual rates of growth from 2007 to 2016. It was followed by France (+X% per year), the UK (+X% per year) and Germany (+X% per year); the majority of the other importing countries also indicated an increase in their bread and bakery imports. Given moderate increases in all the major countries, their shares in terms of total imports remained relatively stable throughout the analyzed period.
