Report Overview

The global bakery contract manufacturing market size was estimated at USD 19.3 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to expand at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.5% from 2022 to 2030. The changing lifestyles, coupled with a growing middle-class population and increasing disposable incomes, are likely to drive the demand for baked goods thereby complementing the market for bakery contract manufacturing. The COVID crisis impacted the entire food supply chain, which is one of the most important aspects of any economy, right from the farm to consumers. The pandemic impacted the labor movement, consumer demand, and bakery production facilities. It also affected food-trade legislation that restricted food trade, resulting in financial constraints in the food supply chain.

U.S. bakery contract manufacturing market size, by service, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

When the pandemic broke out in early 2020, the food and beverage sector focused more on sanitary conditions and food safety. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates food in the U.S., issued new recommendations on food and beverage manufacturing operations and intensified its inspection of food packaging and distribution. Companies in the bakery contract manufacturing industry are implementing automation to ensure uniformity while also increasing productivity and efficiency. Technology is the driving factor behind small-scale, localized industrial food makers, proving how they can carve a niche alongside the ongoing expansion, resulting in large-scale manufacturing.

It is anticipated that the increased demand for fast food and packaged food would encourage manufacturers to increase their production capacities, consequently increasing the demand for baked goods throughout the projected period. In addition, the rising prominence of commercials with appealing images and the availability of a broad variety of tastes in baked products are expected to have a beneficial effect on the demand for processed food and consequently, bakery contract manufacturing. The crisis in Ukraine, in all its aspects, is having worrisome cascading implications on a global economy already battered by COVID-19 and climate change, with devastating effects on developing nations. Russia and Ukraine have a substantial influence on the international economy. This is because they are key providers of commodities on the international market. Growing prices of input raw materials in baked goods are expected to reduce profit margins thereby restraining market growth.
