Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Wafer Biscuit Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global wafer biscuit market: Mars, Nestlé, THE HERSHEY COMPANY, and pladis.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Antonelli Bros, Artisan Biscuits, Bolero, Dukes, Kellogg, Lago Group, and Mondelēz International.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increase in demand for organic and gluten-free wafer. Gluten is a type of protein that is mainly used in manufacturing bread and other bakery products. Gluten can cause inflammation of the small intestine and can damage the skin and brain in individuals with celiac disease. In addition, it is difficult for the body to absorb nutrients from such food products.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is innovative packaging. Innovative and attractive packaging is one of the best ways to attract customers and increase sales. It can help in preventing the degradation of food quality during transportation. It also helps in maintaining the freshness and preventing food loss because of damage. Innovative packaging extends the shelf life of products and provides information on storage. Wafers contain wheat flour, fat, sugar, and many flavoring agents, which are sensitive to moisture. They have a high fat level and are fragile in nature. Therefore, manufacturers must use suitable packaging to protect wafers from damage.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is rising demand for healthy snacks. Consumers have become more aware of their health and nutritious food products because of the increasing media coverage. Young consumers also refer to health blogs to get a better idea about the health issues associated with the consumption of different foods and beverages. Obesity is a common health concern worldwide, which can also lead to heart diseases. In 2015, more than one-third of the US adult population was obese.
