Forecast Period


Market Share of India in South Asia


The market is likely to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% CAGR through 2032 with a projection value of USD 6.7 billion. In 2021, the APEJ region held the largest market share for the chickpea flour market. By 2032, this region will hold a market of USD 3 billion. The US chickpea flour market is estimated at around USD 1.1 bn in 2021. Chickpea flour has recently gained popularity as gluten-free flour.

Chickpea flour is produced by grinding whole and dried chickpeas. Chickpeas predominantly grow in tropical and sub-tropical regions. Chickpea flour is prominently utilized in Indian cuisine while for cooking and baking.  Chickpea is a staple ingredient in Southern Europe and South Asia. It comes in the pulses category and is known for being a cholesterol-free source of protein and fiber.

Chickpea flour is also a rich source of vitamins and minerals, and significantly boosts the intake of manganese and folate. Desi form of chickpea flour dominates the chickpea flour market currently and is estimated to hold USD 4.1 billion market share by 2032.

Increasing consumption of chickpea can be attributed to its high nutritional value among existing plant protein sources. Owing to the healthy balance of amino acids, relatively low levels of anti-nutritional factors, high levels of complex carbohydrates, and bioavailability of proteins, chickpea flour has emerged as a functional ingredient for the food processing industry. Chickpea flour also aids in curing various health problems like diabetes and cancer, coronary heart disease, obesity, and is highly popular in home remedies.

India Continues To Be Central To Global Demand For Chickpea Flour

India is one of the most important markets for chickpea flour, owing to the high production and consumption of chickpea in the country. The harvesting of chickpea is done during the month of mid-January to mid-March, and a decline in production during this time has the potential to alter the status quo in the global demand and supply. India’s centrality to the global chickpea flour market is one of the key reasons for the dominance of Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) in the global chickpea flour market.

Awareness About Health Benefits Driving Adoption In Developed Countries

In developed regions, such as North America and Europe, chickpea flour has gained traction recently, as a large consumer base in the region is looking for healthy food products. In Mediterranean Europe, chickpea flour has been highly used in baking. The pervasive health and wellness trend is likely to provide an impetus to the demand for chickpea flour in North America and Europe during the assessment period, especially among the vegan and vegetarian population.

Sales Through E-Commerce Channels Creating New Growth Avenues

Traditionally, the sales of chickpea flour have remained resurgent through retail, food chain services, and modern trade. These distribution channels continue to be the leading channels for chickpea flour. However, in the recent past, sales through online channels have opened up new growth avenues for chickpea flour manufacturers. According to the report, sales through online stores are likely to surpass sales through departmental stores sometime during the forecast period.

Bakery And Confectionary Continue To Account For Bulk Of Demand

Chickpea flour is used in a wide range of applications, including bakery and confectionary, extruded products, beverages, animal feed, and dairy products. Among these, demand for chickpea flour is most formidable in bakery and confectionery segments across the world. By 2032, demand for chickpea flour through the bakery and confectionary segment is likely to be worth nearly USD 3.1 Billion. Extruded products are the second-largest application segment in the chickpea flour market.

Desi Chickpea Continues To Outsell Kabuli

On the basis of product type, demand for desi chickpea flour has traditionally remained higher than Kabuli flour. Desi seeds are smaller and more rounded than Kabuli. Desi chickpeas are known for growing even in poor soils and harsh conditions while Kabulis are high yield, nutty, have a firm texture, and mainly grow around the Mediterranean. The status quo is likely to remain unchanged during the forecast period, with desi chickpea flour likely to account for a higher revenue share of the market.

Competition Tracking

Leading companies in the chickpea flour market focus on collaboration and strengthening supply chains in a bid to consolidate their position. Some of the leading players in the market include Ingredion Incorporated, The Scoular Company, AGT food and ingredients, Archer Daniels Midland Co., SunOpta, Anchor Ingredients, Parakh Agro Industries Ltd, EHL Limited, Batory Foods, Diefenbaker Spice & Pulse, Blue Ribbon, ADM, Great Western Grain, Best Cooking Pulses, Bean Growers Australia, and CanMar Grain Products.
