Rising Incidences of Celiac Disease and Other Food Allergies to Drive the Growth of the Gluten-free Products Market

   April 4, 2022

Gluten intolerance or celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder of the small intestine. It is genetically predisposed and occurs from infancy forward. Symptoms include pain and discomfort in the intestine and stomach and diarrhea, anemia, and fatigue. According to the Celiac Disease Foundation (2020), celiac disease incidence has increased, with an average of 7.5% per year over the past several decades. The rise in incidence was also due to a real increase of this immune-based disorder, independent of disease detection.

Also, over the past few decades, the incidence of celiac disease has increased in many Western countries. In the 21st century, the incidence of celiac disease was higher among women and children when compared to men. The incidence of celiac disease among women was 17.4 per 100,000 persons per year (meaning that among 100,000 women followed for one year, a bit over 17 will be diagnosed with celiac disease), compared to 7.8 per 100,000 persons per year among men. Celiac disease incidence among children was 21.3 per 100,000 persons per year, compared to 12.9 per 100,000 persons per year in adults.

Nowadays, the only treatment for celiac disease is a gluten-free diet. Once gluten is removed from the diet, the small intestine starts to heal, and normal health returns, thereby driving the demand for gluten-free products. Apart from the increase in the incidences of celiac disease, gluten-free products are also gaining growth due to individuals suffering from other diseases such as wheat allergies, inflammatory diseases, and non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

Furthermore, through government awareness campaigns and the establishment of labels for gluten-free products, the need for gluten-free products has been promoted among consumers. These promotions have increased the need for the treatment of celiac disease among consumers. Thereby, rising incidences of celiac disease and other food allergies drive the growth of the gluten-free products market.

The rising incidences of celiac disease and other food allergies have been witnessing rapid growth in the gluten-free products market across the globe and are expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.3% in the next seven years to be valued at $10.96 billion by 2029, according to the latest publication of Meticulous Research®.
