Bulk Food Ingredients Market

As urbanization expands, people are employed in high-paying professions, requiring them to dedicate considerable amounts of time and effort. This leaves them with limited time to enjoy proper home cooked meals. Consequently, they rely on foods which are readily available for consumption or take less time to cook.

Emerging economies such as India and China are especially witnessing prolific expansion due to surging disposable incomes. However, medium-term growth prospects are expected to be moderate due to COVID-19 disrupting supply chains.

Key Takeaways

  • Ready meals gaining upward traction, bakery products to yield credible revenue prospects
  • Processed herbs & spices to dominate food manufacturers’ ingredient choice while processed grains, pulses and cereals are gaining momentum
  • North America to witness substantial revenue growth, Asia-Pacific to pivot global market demand
  • Skepticism about the quality of idle foods on shelves may impede growth

“Prominent players are seeking to establish robust links with local manufacturers to formulate robust distribution networks, paving way for enhanced market penetration across lucrative geographies,” opines the FMI analyst.

COVID-19 Impact Insights

The COVID-19 pandemic is ushering in substantial downswing in the bulk food ingredients market. Mandatory shutdowns to contain the virus have halted production cycles, leading to restricted output and subsequent supply shortages.

Moreover, lockdowns have prevented cross-border and intra-border logistics, inducing shortage of raw materials required for the production process. This slump is anticipated to prevail for the medium-term forecast.

Fortunately, demand has remained consistent with the advent of e-commerce, leading to a shift in consumer purchasing behavior. Various e-commerce giants are collaborating with prominent food giants and bulk food ingredient providers to make products available to all end-users.

Bulk Food Ingredients Key Players

Prominent players operating in the bulk food ingredients landscape include DuPont, Archer Daniels Midland Company, Cargill Foods Inc., Tate & Lyle PLC, Associated British Foods plc, Olam International, Ingredion Incorporated, EHL Ingredients, Wilmar International, Suntory, Koninklijke DSM N.V., Symrise AG, Kerry Group Plc, Bunge Limited and Ajinomoto among others.

Vendors are emphasizing on establishing strong links with regional manufacturers in order to develop robust distribution channels. This strategy helps ensure that the final product reaches consumers in a timely and proper manner.

Additionally, players are also concentrating on collaborations with existing players, acquisition of startups or relatively small market players and partnerships with regional governments to deepen their penetration.
