Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Cereal, Pasta and Baking Mix Manufacturing industry has grown modestly over the past five years. While the industry has shown some positive signs over the period, rising input prices, downstream retail pressures and changing consumer trends have posed challenges for cereal, pasta and baking mix manufacturers. Industry revenue is forecast to grow at an annualised 1.7% over the five years through 2016-17, to reach $2.6 billion. Revenue growth is projected to slow to 1.6% in 2016-17, due to strong price competition among downstream retailers, pressure from low-cost private-label products and relatively stable export demand.

Industry Report - Starting a New Business Chapter

Moderate barriers discourage entry into the Cereal, Pasta and Baking Mix Manufacturing industry, however, barriers vary among product segments. The biggest threat facing potential new entrants to the industry is the major players' extremely well-entrenched position. These companies command high brand and customer loyalty, and have considerable resources to invest in advertising and promotions to protect and grow their market share. Established players, particularly in the cereal segment, have built economies of scale with low profit margins, further restricting the entry of new players. Furthermore, the major players have favourable contracts with key buyers such as grocery stores and supermarkets that may be difficult for new entrants to secure.
