Analyst Opinion

The Bread and Cereal Products market has been relatively stable for a long time but has recently become more volatile. This change can be attributed to supply chain disruptions and reduced harvesting in some major production areas. Furthermore, unforeseen events have also impacted the market, e.g., the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war, given that Russia and the Ukraine are key producers of wheat, barley, oats, as well as other related products. Additionally, the increase in importation and demand from China has also affected the market. As a result of these influencing factors, cereal prices have seen a significant increase.

When it comes to the Bread and Cereal Products market, it is important to consider some of its main challenges and uncertainties. Some of them are nature-related, such as crop diseases, crop pests, and climate change. Moreover, macroeconomic developments, such as inflationary pressure and real exchange rate movements, can also affect the Cereal & Breakfast market.

Three key trends that can be observed in the Bread and Cereal Products market. Firstly, consumers are increasingly trying to reduce their intake of sugar and other ingredients that have a negative impact on both the immune system and sustainability. Thus, they are turning to “clean label” products. Secondly, breakfast cereals with high-fiber content and high-protein diets are becoming more popular. Thirdly, when purchasing products, consumers are valuing the convenience and snackability of foods within this market a lot more.
