Bakery contract manufacturing market was valued at USD XX million in 2021. It is forecasted to reach USD XX million by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 9.6% during the forecast period (2022-2029). Bakery contract manufacturing is where a manufacturer contracts with a firm for components or products. It is a form of outsourcing.
The key benefits of bakery contract manufacturing include the absence of brand-building expenses, stable revenue and minimal investment risk, absence of the requirement for a sizable sales team, and absence of a procurement department. The demand for baked goods is projected to be driven by changing lifestyles, a growing middle-class population, and rising disposable incomes, which will support the market for bakery contract manufacturing.
Growing demand for prepared food products generates a need for production capacity, thus increasing the demand for bakery contract manufacturing
Food processors had been forced to rely on contract manufacturers as the demand for ready-to-eat food products surged in 2020 because companies could not produce on such a large scale. Due to OEMs' limited manufacturing capacity and expanding food producers, outsourcing manufacturing is rising. Food companies may now easily expand because of the value-added services that food contract manufacturers have started to provide, including packaging, research, consulting, and warehousing. Many contract manufacturers could obtain long-term deals that propelled them to the top.
In addition, private equity investments have allowed contract manufacturers to expand their capacity and provide other important services. Over the years, bakery companies have become smarter about using contract manufacturers to avoid the additional costs associated with manufacturing. Food companies can also release cash flow, which has played an important role during a pandemic and create a favorable environment for manufacturers to thrive. Additionally, it is anticipated that the popularity of commercials featuring appealing images and the accessibility of baked goods in a wide range of flavors will positively impact the market for processed food and, by extension, bakery contract manufacturing.
However, the growing prices of input raw materials in baked goods are expected to reduce market sales, restraining market growth.
Manufacturing segment for the highest share in the global bakery contract manufacturing market
In 2021, the manufacturing segment had the highest revenue share of more than XX percent. The increasing use of robotics and automation technology in the bakery sector improves both the effectiveness and output of contract bakers and the quality of baked goods. Automation technologies help minimize involvement in the baking process, lower the risk of food contamination, and encourage the creation of high-quality baked items. With the need for efficient overall bakery production, bakeries may choose to adopt modern baking techniques or outsource their baking operations due to growing labor and energy costs across the field.
Europe is the dominating region during the forecast period

There are over 1,000 plant bakeries in Europe overall, with nations like Bulgaria, the Netherlands, and the UK having the biggest market shares, followed by Finland. As a result, there will be a demand for bakery contract manufacturing as production capacity for bakery items is needed.
