Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the gluten-free packaged food market to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period. The rising number of coeliac patients and gluten-related allergies are the primary drivers of the growth of this market. Coeliac disease is caused due to the presence of gluten protein found in grains such as wheat, barley and rye and affects the digestive system causing fatigue, anemia, and intestinal problems. A gluten-free diet is the only effective treatment currently. According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA), around 1 in 133 persons in the U.S. suffers from celiac disease, with nearly 83% of the cases being undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.
The introduction of new gluten-free food products is also expected to contribute to the market growth during the forecast period. Pulses are now being used to create gluten-free pasta, baked goods, and snacks in the international food market. For instance, Dialsi Tagliatelle, a gluten-free pasta made with rice flour has a slightly rough texture to picks up sauces generously and is extremely popular among consumers and food experts.
The bakery food segment dominated the market during 2014 with a market share of around 64%. The report predicts this segment to retain its leadership until the end of 2019 growing at a rate of around 7%. The US is the market leader in this segment contributing 16% of the global market sales. The introduction of new products in the gluten-free bakery food segment is the primary growth driver for this market.
The Americas accounted for the largest market share of around 41% during 2014. Italy is the market leader in this region followed by UK, France, Italy, Spain, and Germany. The increasing number of celiac patients and the rising awareness of gluten-free foods are driving the growth of the market in this region.
The global gluten-free packaged food market is highly fragmented due to the presence of both key vendors and private players operating across the globe. Vendors are using celebrity endorsements and fashion shows to showcase new trends in gluten-free packaged foods. The report predicts the market to be more competitive during the forecast period due to several product launches, price wars, mergers, and acquisition.
