Gluten-Free Foods and Beverages in the U.S., 4th Edition

NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Gluten-Free Foods and Beverages in the U.S., 4th Edition

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0376737/Gluten-Free-Foods-and-Beverages-in-...

The market for gluten-free foods and beverages has continued to grow even faster than anticipated, reaching $4.2 billion in 2012, for a compound annual growth rate of 28% over the 2008-2012 period. Within this diverse market, snack/granola bars are the leading category, at 15% of mass-market sales.

An August 2012 consumer survey by Packaged Facts shows that 18% of adults are buying or consuming foods products tagged as gluten-free, up from 15% in October 2010. Moreover, the share of gluten-free consumers who are buying more of these foods has skyrocketed, and the share of total shoppers who are buying more gluten-free foods has doubled. The conviction that gluten-free products are generally healthier is the top motivation for consumers of these products.

Increasing diagnoses of celiac disease and food allergies; growing awareness of these ailments among patients, healthcare practitioners, and the general public; the availability of more products, and better ones, across a range of product categories; and a trend that has friends and family members eating gluten-free to support loved ones are among the factors stimulating continuing expansion in this market.

While growth rates will moderate over the next five years in the wake of market expansion, Packaged Facts projects that U.S. sales of gluten-free foods and beverages will exceed $6.6 billion by 2017.

Report Methodology

The analysis in Gluten-free Foods and Beverages in the U.S., 4th Edition is based on primary and secondary research.

Our analysis of shopping trends and consumer preferences is derived from Packaged Facts' proprietary consumer survey, which is based on a national online poll conducted in August 2012. Secondary research entailed data gathering from relevant sources, including trade and consumer publications, company literature and annual reports, and government sources.
