Doughnuts market in APAC

The doughnuts market in APAC is expected to witness a steady growth rate during the forecast period, mostly due to the rising per capita income and increasing population. Major global vendors like Dunkin' Donuts and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts are primarily targeting this region for expanding their respective market shares by opening new stores and offering new donut flavors. The growth is also driven by local chains rather than only international brands in the region. For instance, in India, Mad Over Donuts and in Australia, local vendors like Donut King and Grumpy Donuts are popular brands. This region offers significant opportunities for the players, with China and India being the most populous countries and contributing to the increasing demand.

Doughnuts market in EMEA

The doughnuts market in EMEA is expected to witness a steady growth rate during the forecast period. In Europe, specialty retail outlets and bakeries are the primary distribution channels for doughnuts. The major markets in Europe are the UK, Germany, France, and Italy. However, major growth will stem from the Middle East, where significant investments have been made over the past decade to develop tourism and infrastructure. In the Middle East and Africa (MEA), the changing eating habits and a large young population base are some of the factors that will likely help increase the consumption of doughnuts.

“MEA is expected to offer attractive growth opportunities to players, owing to the rise in tourism and increasing number of foodservice chains in countries like Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Also, a large untapped market exists in the semi-urban and rural areas of Africa. The emergence of modern retail chains has been contributing to the growth of the market in the region,” says Manjunath.
