The frozen Viennoiserie baked goods segment is expected to remain dominant in the global frozen pastries market, accounting for approximately 60% value share, according to a study released by Persistence Market Research, New York.

Plain and filled croissants are anticipated to be the fastest-growing among Viennoiserie products over the predicted period, owing to the rising demand for frozen croissants from new markets and high consumption in traditional regions.

Consistency in safety and taste boosting demand

Viennoiserie products carry a long shelf life, making them viable products sold in online platforms. Another factor creating a positive impact on the growth is the increasing demand for plain and filled croissants, Pain Au Chocolat, Pains aux raisins and savory items from bakeries and restaurants.

Consumer ability to spend on luxurious food items likely to increase demand
