The Baking Mix and Prepared Food Production industry is growing, but displaying signs of slight stagnation as the industry matures. The industry has benefited from rising disposable income over the five years to 2017. As more consumers returned to work and discretionary incomes increased, demand grew for baked goods and precooked, convenient food items, such as prepared vegetables and refrigerated liquid eggs. Over the five years to 2022, a growing domestic economy will help drive consumer demand for value-added products, such as prepared and spiced foods, which save time and energy at meal time. Increasing incomes and changing consumption trends in East Asia are also anticipated to expand the size of the industry's export markets. A potential hazard to the industry moving forward is growing health concerns among consumers.
