The global pulse flours market witnessed steady growth over the last few years. The market size is projected to reach USD 18.97 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of around 12.2% from 2017. High protein profile of pulses and demand for health food products have been major drivers contributing to the growth of the market.

The pulse flours market, by type, is segmented into pea, bean, chickpea, and lentil. The chickpea flour segment dominated the market in the pulse flours market in 2016. It is a good source of proteins, vitamins, minerals, and carbohydrates, and consists of high levels of dietary fiber. Chickpea flour offers numerous health benefits, such as stabilizing blood sugar levels, improving digestion, weight management, and minimizing the risk of heart attack. It is widely used in aroma- and taste-enhancing products such as soups, sauces, dips, and spreads. Rise in health awareness among consumers and increase in consumption of chickpea flour in developing countries are the key factors driving the demand for chickpea flour.

On the basis of application, the pulse flours market is segmented into food, feed, and others. The further food segment is further segmented into bakery products, extruded food, meat products, beverages, and others. The food segment, on the whole, accounted for the largest market share in 2016 due to the rising demand for healthier and gluten-free products. This demand for natural and healthy ingredients from a larger section of the health-conscious population is also encouraging manufacturers to decrease spending on expensive ingredient systems and develop innovative flour-based systems for optimal use in extruded food products.

Pulse flours are used as substitutes for other agricultural products such as wheat, corn, soy, and other traditional ingredients in various food products to increase the nutrient profile of the final food product. This is one of the factors driving the pulse flours market in the food industry. Pulse flours have been of immense importance in the food processing industry. In the food segment, the bakery products subsegment accounted for the largest share in 2016. Growth in consumer demand for healthy bakery products is a trend which is well-established in developed regions, such as North America and Europe. This is expected to increase the use of pulse flour in bakery applications.

Pulse Flours Market

The pulse flours market in Asia Pacific accounted for the largest in 2016, and it is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The region’s improved agricultural growth over the last decade, followed by advancements in the food processing and food service industry, has opened new avenues for pulse flours which is one of the major drivers here.

Unpleasant flavor of pulses and the prohibition of GM origin products in Europe are the major factors restraining the growth of the market. For instance, compounds such as aldehydes, alcohols, ketones, acids, pyrazines, and sulphur derivatives are responsible for the off-flavor in a few types of pulse flours. The consumer perception regarding the beany taste of pulses is expected to restrain the growth of the pulse flours market. Genetically modified crops are banned in Europe, where several countries, as part of the European Union, have banned their farmers from cultivating genetically modified crops, which has posed a retraining factor for the pulse flours market.

The pulse flours market is characterized by medium to high competition due to the presence of a number of large- and small-scale firms with low product differentiation. New product launches, acquisitions, and expansions are the key strategies adopted by these players to ensure their growth in the market. Players such as ADM (US), Ingredion (US), The Scoular Company (US), SunOpta (Canada), Anchor Ingredients (US), EHL Limited (UK), Batory Foods (US), Diefenbaker Spice & Pulse (Canada), Blue Ribbon (Australia), Great Western Grain (Canada), Best Cooking Pulses (Canada), and Bean Growers Australia (Australia) dominate this market.
