Cookies Segment to Lead Global Market due to High Penetration and Sales

The demand for malt ingredient in making bakery products is expected to rise in the coming years as the food habits are being characterized by natural and organic items. The awareness about health benefits of consuming malt over the sweeteners has also augmented the demand for this product in recent years.

Additionally, increasing consumption of confectionary and bakery items has also spiked the demand for malt ingredients. The various types of malt ingredients available in the global market are liquid market, dry malt, malt flour, and others.

Inroads of Breweries and Pharmaceutical Companies on Malt Harvest to Impede Growth

Despite the steady market drivers, the global malt ingredient market for bakery is being hampered by the shortage of grains. The impact of protean weather conditions has exacerbated the harvest of malt grains, which has significantly restrained the market over the past few years. Furthermore, inroads of pharmaceutical companies and breweries into overall malt produce has also led to grain shortage to a noticeable extent. However, stringent regulations set by the governments about food additives has encouraged food labels to focus on packaging cleaner and healthier items. This factor is expected to offer several lucrative opportunities to the overall market.
