Baking and Dessert Mixes - US - February 2018
The market for baking and dessert mixes is a large one, valued at nearly $4 billion. However, it continues to shrink, following a pattern that has endured for much of the past decade. That lack of growth is not necessarily the result of consumer dissatisfaction, but it is resulting more from a consumer interest in options that are even more convenient and easy – namely, options from stand-alone and in-store bakeries.
This report looks at the following areas:
Shrinking household size affecting one of the category’s key demographics: families
Weak category penetration and frequency
Even users are using mixes less than a year ago
Familiarity proves a notable influence
