Operators in the Bakery Product Retailing industry sell goods such as bread, cakes, rolls, pies and pasties. Confectioners that sell chocolate, toffee, fudge and other sugary items are also included. The industry has performed relatively well over the past five years, although the tough economic climate has brought problems for a number of retail firms. Challenging economic conditions caused incomes to decline, so consumers reduced their purchases accordingly. However, higher demand for ready-to-eat meals has driven the sale of sandwiches and bakery snacks such as rolls, teacakes and scones.
This industry includes the retail sale of bread and bakery products including rolls, baps and cakes. It also includes the sale of sugar confectionery such as chocolates and sweets in specialised stores. In most instances, bakery product retailers also manufacture their products on the premises.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
