(Food-Beverage-News.Com, October 22, 2021 ) The global gluten-free products market size is estimated to account for USD 5.6 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 8.3 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 8.1%. The gluten-free products market is driven by the rising prevalence of celiac disease and also growing population shifting towards healthier diets. Gluten is a protein that is primarily found in four grains, namely, wheat, barley, rye, and triticale (crossbreed).
Its main purpose is to give the dough its elasticity, which is further used to produce a line of products by imparting a chewy texture and retaining the product’s shape. However, this protein is not suitable for every consumer, as it may result in various health-related issues. Hence, companies are manufacturing a line of gluten-free products and marketing it globally as they experience a positive demand from consumers facing gluten-intolerance issues and other health-related problems caused due to gluten.
“Impact of COVID-19 on the current market size and forecast.”
The COVID-19 pandemic is projected to have a moderate and unfavorable impact on the global gluten-free products market. Due to the restricted supply chain activities, manufacturers are not able to procure the raw material and manufacture goods to cater to the demand. Additionally, due to government initiatives such as lockdowns, manufacturing plants were also at a standstill due to the limited workforce available. Global companies are facing challenges in importing and exporting the end products, owing to the limited international trading activities.
All these factors cumulatively have impacted the entire supply chain, thereby impacting the market adversely. However, post-pandemic, the market for gluten-free products is projected to witness an optimistic growth trend, owing to the rise in consumers preferring gluten-free and other free-from foods, as a result of a shift in the consumption lifestyles towards healthier eating. Thus, the market is expected to be at a standstill until the fourth quarter of 2020.
