Chinese confectionery trade body China Candy has unveiled some of the sweets and snacks products launching at the China Candy & Snacks Expo held in Ningbo this month.

Consumer trends including premiumization, functionality, and convenience-oriented packaging were shaping product development in the domestic market, said China Candy.

Natural bakery products had also started to gain ground as Chinese consumers become more health-conscious, it added.

China​ is among the six largest markets globally for packaged bakery products in terms of volume, according to Mintel, alongside the US, Russia, South Africa, UK, and Japan.

China Bakery Forecast

Mintel’s 2016 global annual review of bread, bakery and cakes also shows China is the fastest-growing bread market with a 24.8% retail value increase year-over-year. Value sales in the sweet bakery category have grown 28.1% year-on-year.

Mintel predicts that by the end of 2019, China’s bakery product market will be worth around 397.70bn RMB ($60bn).
