The Global Gluten Free Product Market size was USD 4.3 Billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 6.2 Billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period. Gluten-free product is primarily developed for persons with celiac disease and gluten allergy, as gluten can cause a variety of problems, including gut swelling. However, due to the health benefits of a gluten-free diet, it is gaining in popularity even among those who do not have gluten sensitivity. It's typically used in baked goods because it gives them texture and shape, but the protein has no nutritional value. As a result, customers are aiming to eliminate gluten from their diets because it aids in weight loss, digestion, and vitality. Furthermore, increased consumer demand for functional foods and product innovation in "free-from" food sectors are expected to propel the gluten-free food market forward in the coming years.

There has been a significant surge in demand all around the world. Clean-label and "free-from" products have gone from niche to mainstream in recent years as consumers' awareness of healthy eating has grown. Consumers seek out foods that aid in the management and maintenance of their overall health. They are looking for alternate food and beverage formulations that will help them avoid food sensitivities while also adhering to their diets. Manufacturers are responding to changing consumer preferences by producing new items to meet demand.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the worldwide economy and businesses. Consumers' food consumption patterns changed as a result of the pandemic's socioeconomic position. People were obliged to stay at home due to restrictions on public transportation and government lockdown. As a result of this aspect, consumers' snacking habits have changed.
