Baking powder is a dry chemical leavening used in a large number of baked goods. It is a mixture of baking soda, a dry acid, and sometimes cornstarch, and is used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods.

One of the major factors propelling the growth of the global baking powder market is the burgeoning food and fast food markets. The increasing consumption of baked foods directly affects the performance of the global baking powder market. The food industry utilizes baking powder as a raising agent to impart fluffiness and lightness to products such as cakes, waffles, tarts, pastries, etc. However, the rising awareness about the health implications of baking powder, if consumed for prolonged periods of time, is the biggest challenge for manufacturers presently.

The report studies the global baking powder market in terms of product and geography. By product, the segments of this market are tartrate, aluminum-free, phosphate-free, phosphate, sodium aluminum sulfate phosphate, anhydrous phosphate, and others. The tartrate segment held the highest share of 30.4% in the global market in 2012. This segment is expected to maintain its dominant position over the forecast period due to an increased preference for healthy baked foods. Phosphate-based baking powder is also a major product segment of the baking powder market; the segment held a share of 24.5% in the global market in 2012.
