US Demand for Dough, Dry Pasta, & Tortillas to Rise 3.2% Annually to 2022


Cleveland, OH, August 15, 2018 — US demand for dough, dry pasta, and tortillas is forecast to increase 3.2% per annum through 2022, according to Dough, Dry Pasta, & Tortillas: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. Suppliers will benefit from population growth, including in the Hispanic cohort, and rising per-capita consumption; consumers’ ability to purchase higher-value products as disposable personal incomes expand; and ongoing demand for prepared foods from foodservice establishments as consumers continue to place value on the convenience and entertainment of dining out.

Furthermore, a preference by some consumers for higher-value niche products, such as gluten-free pasta, will boost gains in dollar terms. Other niche trends include marketing products that feature high-protein, heritage or ancient grain, and pulse flour. Competition from other foods and increasing consumer health concerns and the related popularity of diets designed to reduce carbohydrate intake will prevent stronger gains.
