Globally, breakfast cereals are available in two types, namely ready-to-eat and hot cereals. The demand for ready-to-eat breakfast cereals is constantly increasing due to the minimal preparation time they require. As per recent research, 85% of the total demand for breakfast cereals from Europe and North America was for ready-to-eat products. On the contrary, the demand for hot breakfast cereals was higher in Asia Pacific. By 2019, in terms of value, the hot breakfast cereals segment is expected to account for 18% of the global breakfast cereals market. Thus, the growing demand for both ready-to-eat and hot breakfast cereals is expected to propel the global breakfast cereals market in the next few years.
