Global Gluten-Free Packaged Food Market 2015-2019

Global Gluten-Free Packaged Food Market 2015-2019

Technavio's market research analyst predicts the gluten-free packaged food market to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period. The rising number of coeliac patients and gluten-related allergies are the primary drivers of the growth of this market. Coeliac disease is caused due to the presence of gluten protein found in grains such as wheat, barley and rye and affects the digestive system causing fatigue, anemia, and intestinal problems. A gluten-free diet is the only effective treatment currently. According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA), around 1 in 133 persons in the U.S. suffers from celiac disease, with nearly 83% of the cases being undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.

The introduction of new gluten-free food products is also expected to contribute to the market growth during the forecast period. Pulses are now being used to create gluten-free pasta, baked goods, and snacks in the international food market. For instance, Dialsi Tagliatelle, a gluten-free pasta made with rice flour has a slightly rough texture to picks up sauces generously and is extremely popular among consumers and food experts.
