The global commercial flour market size is predicted to be worth around US$ 67 billion by 2030 and anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3% during the forecast period 2021 to 2030.

The global commercial flour market is majorly restrained by the price volatility of grains affected due to changing climatic conditions that hamper overall production. As competition intensifies in the sector with price wars among leading players, industry players are expected to improve the efficiency of their value chain, from inbound logistics to distribution and, to a large extent, marketing and export of products.

Expanding demand for gluten-free foods and increasing per capita food consumption in developing countries are the primary drivers leading the global commercial flour market during the forecast period. Rising demand for convenience foods, innovation in packaging, and food preferences of expanding young population are also expected to provide traction to market growth in near future.

Drivers & Restraints:

Rising health concerns among people and increasing need for gluten-free diets are facilitating the demand for commercial flour. As rice and corn flour are naturally gluten-free products, consumers are expected to sustain consumption of these two products in near future. People in North America and Europe have been preferring pregelatinized flour or gluten-free flour over others due to the rising health concerns. Increasing sensitiveness for gluten-free flour, such as white rice flour and corn flour, are driving the market and are being increasingly used in flour-based products. Growing demand for these products is influencing the growth of the flour market, and is expected to continue over the estimated time period.

Besides price volatility of grains due to uncertain climatic conditions, there are some other restraints that are potentially restricting the growth of the commercial flour market. Irregularities in climate and seasonal variations affect crops due to critical and uneven rainfall patterns. A reduction in rainfall also adversely affects the agricultural yields in many regions, which results in variations in input as well as output prices. There have been variations in the cost of energy, chemicals, and fertilizers. These fluctuations lead to a volatility in the prices of crops. Increased volatility is the structural issue for which players must find operational responses to secure margins in the long term. In 2017, the prices of wheat was up nearly 6% due to heavy rainfall in the Midwest region of the U.S.

Soaring Demand for Food Products Made of Quality Flour to Boost Market

Wheat is the most common and widely produced cereal in the globe. Wheat flours are extensively used as a crucial ingredient in the making of bakery items, bread, and crispy coating of fast food and fried food. Wheat flour is also widely used in making several mouthwatering food items include burgers, donuts, fried meat, and cakes. Growing demand for quality flour among consumers and rapidly changing lifestyles of consumers from traditional to modern are the factors majorly driving the global commercial flour market. Along with this, rising health concerns for consuming high-protein flour and growing consumers’ inclination towards gluten-free flour alternatives are also provide an impetus to the growth of the global commercial flour market.

Furthermore, rapidly changing consumers’ preference towards tasty foods and rising sales of confectionary and bakery products are also boosting the global commercial flour market. Apart from this, increasing demand for convenience food products and growing advanced retail platforms such as food shopping centers and supermarkets for selling various food items are also propelling expansion in the global commercial flour market.

Versatility in Products’ Costs May Hinder Market’s Growth

Rapid emergence of instant food products has reduced the utilization of natural flour. Along with this, variance in costs and low accessibility of crude materials are another factors hindering the growth of the global commercial flour market. Nonetheless, persistent demand for tasty and crispy food and mushrooming food industry worldwide is believed to help overcome such challenges in the near future.
