Pulse Flour Market Remains Highly Fragmented and Competitive; Local Manufacturers to Hold a Lion’s Share

With a significant share, regional players are projected to dominate the pulse flour market, making for a highly competitive landscape. Local manufacturers of pulse flour are expanding their product offerings to capture a significant share of the global pulse flour market. Future Market Insights’ (FMI) recently published report on the global pulse flour market projects higher profit margins likely to be achieved by manufacturers of pulse flour. Being predominantly dominated by smaller players catering to the needs of pulse flour consuming local customers, the global pulse flour market is witnessing robust operational strategies by manufacturers in terms of strengthening their distribution systems, with wholesalers in the middle of the pulse flour supply chain.

Local players in the fragmented pulse flour market are anticipated to explore more moderate-to-high growth prospects, specifically in emerging economies offering first-mover opportunities to native pulse flour vendors. Conversely, FMI foresees the entry of multiple private players in the pulse flour market with branded and differentiated pulses exerting an upward pricing pressure, making pulses and pulse-based products including pulse flour more expensive and less affordable to the rural population.

Growing Demand for Plant-based Proteins to Push Sales of Pulse Flour in the Coming Years

As per the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United States, pulses contain 18 to 25 percent essential amino acids. As per the market study, pulse flour is projected to fulfill the increasing demand for special diets pertaining to different dietary requirements including gluten-free, diabetic, and vegetarian diets, owing to no gluten, low glycemic, and rich source of eight essential amino acids present in pulses. Moreover, consumers opting for diets with less meat and more plant-based proteins will drive the overall pulse flour market.

Value Addition and New Product Development a Key Focus Area for Manufacturers

Given the increasing consumer awareness of health, healthy nutrition options, and ready-to-eat food products, affordable good quality protein in convenient packaging is likely to drive the adoption of pulse flour—specifically ensuring nutritional security in developing countries. Considering the above mentioned factor, focus is likely to remain on pulses used as raw material for new product development in the near future, notes FMI in this exhaustive report on the pulse flour market. Manufacturers are projected to extend the value addition opportunities in pulse flour based gluten free baked products, snacks, breakfast cereals, breads and batter—through primary and secondary processing. For instance, Ingredion’s new range of pulse flour boasts of a ‘clean flavor profile’, offering a healthy alternative to gluten-free flours. Likewise, AGT Foods offers a diverse range of pulse flour (PulsePlus Flour) offering nutritional benefits including protein enhancement, dietary fiber enrichment, and low glycemic formulation. Further, greater emphasis is being placed on identifying and determining characteristics of functional quality and critical nutrition of pulse flour.

Global Government Bodies Campaigning to Promote Pulse Flour Consumption

As per the European Union’s project named Transition Paths to Sustainable Legume-based Systems in Europe (TRUE), the diversity and quantity of legume products including pulse flour has increased ever since the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization launched the International Year of Pulses in 2016. Moreover, research suggests nearly 190 percent rise in legume products carrying vegan claims and an approximate rise of 70 percent in products with gluten-free claims. Similarly, Pulse Canada too is looking to expand its pulse production by 2025—with a focus on promoting whole split pulses in the foodservice and retail sectors and pulse flour in the processed foods sector.

Application in Pet Foods to Expand Opportunities for Manufacturers of Pulse Flour

Although pulse-based food products for pets is a fairly new concept, food experts are exploring the option of using pulse fractions in premium pet-food formulations. Pet owners are becoming increasingly aware of certain dietary intolerances and allergies in pets including the inability to digest gluten-laden products. The grain-free food products for pets are projected to be replaced by plant-based variants including pulse flour. Moreover, an ongoing FDA investigation linking grain-free foods and canine dilated cardiomyopathy could have a significant impact on this segment’s momentum, thereby driving the sales of pulse flour in the global market.

Competitive Landscape Analysis of the Global Pulse Flour Market

As per FMI’s recently published report on the global pulse flour market, key players in the fragmented pulse flour market are looking at strategic collaborations, mergers, and acquisitions as key market strategies to solidify their market position, expand their product offerings, and reach out to customers in different geographies.

In the same year, ADM entered into an agreement to acquire Crosswind Industries, a Kansas-based producer making products for pets.
