Europe held the leading position in the global market in 2019 and is expected to maintain its dominance in the future.

The global gluten-free products consumption has been on the rise marking a positive trend on bakery and ready meals global trend, which is attributable to the rise in awareness about various health benefits associated with the consumption of gluten-free products. North America and Europe has witnessed higher concentration of gluten-free food products consumption. 

Gluten-free products are generally more expensive than the regular food products containing wheat ingredients. This is attributable to the additional costs incurred on developing gluten-free food products. According to the Gluten-Intolerance Group of North America, celiac shoppers estimated that up to 30% of their entire monthly grocery bill was spent on gluten-free products. Consumers with gluten intolerance are expected to have less preference over gluten-free food products due to high pricing of these products.

High price range of the products available in the market is one of the key challenges incurred by the players of the gluten-free products market. However, this can be alleviated by providing its target customers with private labeled products at lower price range. Many retailers in the U.S. have taken advantage of the gluten-free market by providing gluten-free private label products as well as special in-store signage and locations for gluten-free packaged foods.
