The Bread Production industry has faced numerous challenges over the past five years. Growing competition from supermarkets' instore bakeries and the consumer shift away from factory-baked bread towards speciality and artisan retailers have caused the industry's share of the overall bread market to fall. Additionally, volatility in input prices over the past five years has dampened industry growth prospects and squeezed profit margins. Evolving nutritional concerns, particularly those relating to carbohydrate consumption, have also worked against the industry.
This industry consists of establishments mainly engaged in the production of leavened and unleavened bread from factory-based premises. Companies that produce bread dough (fresh or frozen), breadcrumbs or par-baked bread are also included in the industry.
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.
