Market driver: increasing demand for gluten-free products in APAC
The gluten-free food market is gradually increasing in APAC countries such as China and Australia owing to the increase in the number of health-conscious people and the rise in awareness about celiac diseases. There is no medication available currently to treat this disease, and the only way to avoid it is to switch to a gluten-free diet. As rice noodles are naturally gluten-free, the overall demand for this noodle variety is high, especially among health-conscious consumers.
According to Manjunath Reddy, a lead analyst at Technavio for food research, “Other factors such as the increase in the number of digestive health problems, weight management issues, and increasing requirement for nutritious food are propelling the demand for gluten-free food items. Growing prevalence of celiac diseases among consumers within the region would eventually increase the overall sales revenue of vendors in the region.”

Market trend: new product launches
Factors like new product development, improved taste and versatility, and high levels of marketing support often help in increasing the overall demand for the product within the market. Thus, several players are currently launching rice noodles offerings in APAC to expand their portfolio of products. For instance, in 2015, SA GIANG (a Vietnam-based company) launched processed instant products from rice like instant beef rice noodles, instant chicken rice noodles, and instant tapioca rice sticks. It is expected that more players would launch rice noodles with new parameters during the forecast period, which would eventually help in enhancing sales of the overall market and sustain growth.
Market challenge: increasing launch of other varieties of noodles in APAC
The rice noodles market in APAC is increasingly facing challenges due to the large number of launches of other noodle varieties within the region. For instance, in 2017, Nestlé India launched MAGGI Masalas of India Noodles range with flavors like Amritsari Achari Masala Noodles, Mumbaiya Chatak Masala, Super Chennai Masala Noodles, and Bengali Jhaal Masala Noodles. Players manufacturing rice noodles need to come with variety and new flavors to compete with other noodles launched in the market.
