Market Restraints:

Health issues such as allergy triggered by ingredients used in energy bar is expected to restrict the market growth. Energy bars are made with various ingredients with the most commonly used being oats,  almonds, peanuts, different seeds and grains, coconut oil, honey, soy, Choco chips, various  fruits and dry fruits, etc. According to the Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), about 25 to 40% of people are allergic to both peanuts and tree nuts. As a requirement of the federal Food Allergen  Labelling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (FALCPA), all pre-packaged foods in the  United States that use nuts as an ingredient must list the type of nut on the label.

High price of energy bar is expected to hamper the market growth. For instance, KIND Energy is made with 100% whole grains from oats, quinoa, buckwheat, amaranth, and millet, and 10 grams of protein.  It is retailed at a price of USD 1.7 per bar.

Market Opportunities:

Increasing availability of allergy free ingredient bar is expected to serve major growth opportunities for the market over the forecast period.  For instance, in October 2019, Spark Nutrition LLC, introduced its product line No Nuts! Which is nut-free protein + energy bars. It is manufactured in a 100% nut-free facility specializing in non- allergic product manufacturing.

Growing launch of energy bar in different flavour and texture by key players is again projected to bring bright market opportunities for the market players. For instance, in July 2020, General Mills launched its Nature Valley Packed Sustained energy bar that contains nut butters, nuts, seeds, and dried fruit and is creamy, crunchy and chewy in texture. It is also available in peanut butter & cranberry and almond butter & blueberry options.

Market Trends/Key Takeaways:

This reflects huge market opportunity and potential for plant-based energy bars. Also, the plant-based food and beverages market is growing at a rate of over 8% during the forecast period in Europe.

Increasing availability of kid’s snacks bars is another key factor which is expected to shape the market positively.
