Free-from Food Market in MEA: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the free-from food industry in MEA. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Free-from Food Market Driver in MEA

The growing demand for gluten-free food products is one of the key drivers supporting the free-from food market growth in MEA. Consumers choose gluten-free bakery and confectionery food products for two reasons, which can be either as a medication for celiac disease or due to the perceived benefits of gluten-free products as a preventive measure for gluten intolerance. Moreover, in Saudi Arabia, about 0.64% of the population suffers from issues related to celiac disease, which is mainly caused by the consumption of gluten.  Thus, people are becoming highly aware of the disease, which creates a higher demand for gluten-free food products. Additionally, to address the growing demand, their bakers are expanding their presence and increasing the availability of gluten-free products by launching exclusive outlets for these foods in the region. Such initiations are expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.

Key Free-from Food Market Trend in MEA

The growing influence of online retailing is one of the key trends contributing to the free-from-food market growth in MEA. Customers prefer online shopping due to its convenience and easy payment process, which helps them in avoiding time-consuming journeys and billing queues. Online shopping portals have enhanced security features that increase sales and purchases, along with user-friendly website designs that offer enhanced and efficient product visibility. This trend is encouraging vendors to focus on the internet-savvy customer segment. This mode of business will assist vendors in saving operating costs and overheads, which are lower in the online retail format than that in the physical store format. Thus, owing to the benefits of online shopping the free-from-food market in MEA is expected to have a positive impact during the forecast period.

Key Free-from Food Market Challenge in MEA

The high price of free-from food products is one of the factors hindering the free-from food market growth in MEA. The manufacturing cost of free-from food products is higher than that of products with gluten and others, and the same reflects in the selling price of gluten-free products. Also, the fluctuation of raw material prices such as rice, wheat, and others negatively impact the price of free-from food. For instance, in 2021, the wholesale price of rice flour soared by 26% as compared to 2020, promoting concerns over the impact on ?free from? products.  Such high prices increase the overall monthly food expense of families. free-from food products are expensive in all regions, such as MEA, owing to their superior quality and complex manufacturing process. Therefore, the high cost of free-from food might hinder the growth of the global free-from food market during the forecast period.
