Potassium Bromate: Market outlook

Regardless of growing at a comparatively sluggish pace, baked goods or bakery products still continue to provide substantial growth opportunities for retailers and manufacturers. Bread is one of the most consumed bakery product across the globe; factors including increasing urbanization, growing purchasing parity of consumer, rising millennials population, and breakfast needs are driving the demand for on-the-go food products such as bread. The slowly but steadily increasing bakery industry is pushing manufacturers to innovate and upscale their product offering by introducing flavored bread, sweetbreads, organic brads, non-GMO bread, and others. These variants are an effort by the bread manufacturers to fuel the market demand for bread and to cater a more extensive consumer base. The increasing demand for bread is anticipated to boost the market for oxidizing agent potassium bromate, used in the production process of breads. Potassium bromate is in the form of white crystals or powder used as a flour improver and dough enhancer for application in the baking industry. Potassium bromate is responsible for strengthening the dough and for enabling the high rise of the dough. Potassium bromate bleaches the bread dough and improves its elasticity by firming its molecular bridges network. The use of potassium bromate makes the end product soft, fluffy, and unnaturally white.
