Latest Innovation in Bread Improvers Industry

According to a research report Bread Improvers Market by Type (Emulsifiers, Enzymes, Oxidizing Agents, Reducing Agents, and Acidulants), Application (Bread, Buns, & Rolls, Cakes, Pastries, Pizza Dough), Form (Powdered, Liquid), End Users and Region – Global Forecast to 2028″ published by MarketsandMarkets, the global bread improvers industry, valued at USD 1.5 Billion in 2023, highlights a remarkable growth projection, anticipated to escalate to USD 1.9 Billion by 2028, indicating a robust compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.9% during the forecast period. According to the USDA Report on Food Processing Ingredients published in March 2021, the sales of bakery products experienced an increase of 7% to reach an impressive U.S. $1.2 billion in 2020. This growth coincided with a significant rise in consumer expenditure on bread and cereals, which reached U.S. $206.9 per capita, marking an 8.3% increase from the previous year (2019). Alongside this upward trajectory in the bakery sector, the demand for bread improvers has also seen a corresponding increase. As bakery manufacturers strive to meet consumer expectations for high-quality, flavorful, and longer-lasting bread products, the use of bread improvers has become increasingly prevalent. By enhancing the texture, volume, and shelf life of bread, bread improvers play a crucial role in ensuring consistent product quality and meeting consumer preferences.

Europe acquires a dominant position within the bread improvers market throughout the forecast period.

According to the Federation of Bakers (UK), Bread consumption patterns vary significantly across the EU, with the majority of countries averaging a consumption of 50 kg of bread per person per year. The market structure across Europe exhibits diversity. For instance, in the UK, the industrial sector represents 80% of production, while it accounts for 40% in Germany, 35% in France, approximately 81% in the Netherlands, and 19% in Spain. Moreover, bread consumption remains steady in Western Europe, although it differs significantly from country to country. Germans and Austrians lead in bread consumption, averaging around 80 kg per year, while the UK and Ireland have the lowest annual consumption, with less than 50 kg. The widespread consumption of bread across the European region indicates a substantial market for bread and related products, creating a significant demand for technologies and solutions that can enhance the quality, texture, and shelf life of bread.

As mentioned in the Baking Europe 2020 Report, the majority of bread consumed in Europe is currently manufactured by large-scale plant bakeries, which produce bread and other baked goods on an industrial level. These facilities utilize machinery, technology, and scientific advancements to their fullest extent in automated bread-making processes that aim to meet consumer demands for quality, consistency, convenience, and affordability. Thus, bread improvers play a crucial role by providing bakery manufacturers with the tools and formulations needed to optimize their production processes and meet the evolving demands of consumers. By incorporating bread improvers into their operations, large-scale plant bakeries can enhance the quality and consistency of their bread products, thereby maintaining competitiveness in the market and satisfying consumer expectations.

The enzymes segment is the fastest-growing market in the upcoming forecast period.

Enzymes have become a pervasive ingredient group in various types of bread, playing a crucial role in the modern bread-making process. Despite evolving regulatory standards, enzymes remain indispensable processing aids in the baking industry. Their functional versatility, clean label attributes, capacity to streamline processes, and cost-saving benefits underscore their essential role in bakery products. A significant advantage of enzymes is their natural occurrence in common bakery ingredients such as wheat and soy flour. Additionally, since enzymes are typically deactivated by the high temperatures of the baking process, their use enables bakers to achieve a desirable clean label image for their products.
