The market for breakfast cereals is large and continues to grow. According to a recent analyst report by The Business Research Company, the global breakfast cereal market is expected to grow from $56.86 billion in 2020 to $60.07 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.6%. While the year-over-year growth is mainly due to companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the impact of COVID-19, the market is estimated to reach $75.44 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 6%. Growing adoption of convenience foods and rising health consciousness are likely to augment the demand for breakfast cereals over the forecast period. Furthermore, consciousness among people to consume healthy products, mostly in western countries, also plays a vital role in generating demand. Rising awareness among people in emerging economies regarding health benefits associated with breakfast cereals is poised to create ample opportunities for new market entrants.
