Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global high-fiber biscuit market:

Consumer demand for optimum nutrition, convenience, and naturalness

The demand for convenient products rich in fiber has increased among consumers owing to the rising interest in health and wellness. Fiber has many health benefits such as it helps the liver to function properly, contributes to the feeling of satisfaction (as foods containing fiber take a long time to chew and are bulkier), and helps to remove toxins, cholesterol, and sugars from the body.

Manjunath Reddy, a lead food research analyst at Technavio, says, “As biscuits are one of the most commonly consumed products, the awareness about the importance of fiber content is increasing. Thus, the overall demand for high-fiber biscuits is increasing on a year-over-year basis as consumers find these biscuits are more natural and free from artificial ingredients.”

Used as a breakfast biscuits sub-category

Players like belVita and Snyder's-Lance are increasing the appeal of high-fiber biscuits by launching breakfast biscuits that are rich in fibers (like whole grains). Thus, the positioning of these biscuits as breakfast biscuits is attracting more consumers as it is a healthy snack that is a convenient, on-the-go breakfast solution.

Players are continuously evolving in this category and are coming up with a range of formats and with a variety of nutritional benefits including protein, fruits, and vegetables to address consumer demand for convenient, nutritious breakfast options,” adds Manjunath.

Demand for sugar-free high-fiber biscuits

Obesity has become a common issue among the global population. In 2014, almost 26% of the global population was overweight; of this percentage, almost 32% of the people were obese. It has been estimated that by 2030, nearly 74% of men and 64% of women in the UK will be overweight, and nearly 42% of the US population will be obese.

With the increasing obesity rates across the world, most consumers are now buying sugar-free products. The global increase in the number of diabetes cases is also resulting in the consumer shift to sugar-free products, which is reflected in the increasing demand for sugar-free biscuits.
