Growing Disposable Incomes Benefit Market
One factor that has majorly filliped the global market for cake mixes is the rising disposable incomes of people world over. This has upped demand for various fancy foods and mixes. Besides, with more people, women specifically, stepping out to join jobs that have a demanding schedule, such cake mixes are seeing an increased demand. This is because, with reduced time on hands, people are less inclined to make cakes from the scratches. With readymade mixes, everything is available at one place in right proportions.
Another factor leading to the sustained demand for cake mixes is globalization, which has led to western products – both food and consumer goods – flooding markets in Asia Pacific and the Middle East. Dismantling of trade barriers, aggressive marketing and advertising, and growth in hypermarkets, supermarkets, ecommerce channels, and mom-and-pop stores have led to their continued sales.
Emergence of Various Types of Cake Mixes Drives Demand
The emergence of a variety of cake mixes in different flavors is benefitting the market by generating sales. In order to entice health conscious consumers, manufacturers are also coming up with sugar free and low fat cake mixes, with additional nutritional elements in it.
A noticeable trend is the substantial growth in the market in the developing countries of Asia Pacific such as China and India. These fast-expanding economies with massive populations, rapid urbanization and a burgeoning middle class is majorly fuelling demand for cake mixes.
