Report Code: FBR 32040 Report Format: PDF + Excel

Cereal Bar Market Overview

Cereal Bar Market size was estimated at $11.9 billion in 2020, projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecast period 2021-2026. The cereal Bar industry has witnessed huge demand owing to its ability to fulfill a variety of dietary needs, including low salt, low cholesterol, and low or no sugar. A cereal bar is simply known as a flapjack, a bar-shaped food product prepared by pressing cereals and, in most cases, dried fruit or berries together. These bars are also called as energy bars, nutrition bars as these bars are high in components that offer instant energy. Oats, nuts, and seeds, which are high in complex carbohydrates, are also important components of an excellent cereal bar. These are high in fiber, which the body break down more slowly than refined carbohydrate, allowing sugars to be released more slowly into the bloodstream. Cereal bar manufacturers provide a variety of custom-made goods that are not only nutritional and healthy, but also tasty. Owing to their flavor, dietary value, cereal bars consisting of granola and muesli have seen rapid expansion over the years. During the projected period, demand for cereal bars enriched with organic components such as dried fruits is likely to rise. Another major trend expected to boost market expansion is the growing popularity of energy bars among athletes and young adults. Athletes require healthy snacking in order to function, as well as eating a meal at regular intervals throughout the day. Cereal bars are high in fiber and can assist with hunger control, digestive health, and weight loss. As a result, the demand for these items is increasing among athletes. Moreover, the wide availability of these bars makes it a simple grab-and-go choice and is much suited for snacking, hence these cereal bars are also termed as snack bars. Cereal bars have become a mainstay in fast-paced modern life, with many people substituting a bite-sized bar for a low-calorie breakfast or healthy snack. However, not all snack bars are healthy, some well-known brands contain sugar and processed carbohydrates, both of which are caloric and lead to a "sugar rush” which is likely to hamper the market growth.

Growing Demand for Cereal Bras as a Healthy Snacking:

Cereal Bar Market Segment Analysis-Challenges

High Sugar Content:

Cereal bars are a convenient grab-and-go snack, but they aren't always as nutritious as they appear, and many of them are high in sugar. A snack's effectiveness is determined by the amount of protein and fiber it contains. This is a mixture that helps in maintaining a healthy blood sugar level by delaying the release of carbohydrates into the bloodstream, keeping the stomach fuller for longer and giving continuous energy. High-sugar foods are quickly burned by the body, resulting in an energy slump and sugar or carb cravings, which are signs of a blood sugar fall. While this food is strong in protein and fiber, it also contains a variety of refined sugars that are bad for blood sugar control. It keeps it going for a while, but it isn't really healthy. When it comes to flapjacks, despite the fact that this product is a flapjack rather than a typical cereal bar, it provides less protein per gram than some of the other items evaluated here. While nutrition bars have the benefit of containing oats, which are a good source of slow-release complex carbohydrates, they're not as healthy as they might be because they're sweetened with added cane sugar rather than the sugar found naturally in fruit or dried fruit.
