Flour is mainly obtained by grinding wheat, maize, rice, and others. Wheat is the grain most commonly used to make flour, accounting nearly 84.52% of the total content of the flour, followed by maize and rice. Wheat is a main ingredient of bread, which is a staple food for many cultures. While wheat is the most common base for flour, maize flour is important since ancient times and remains a staple in the Americas. Flour contains a high proportion of starch, which is a subset of complex carbohydrates, also known as polysaccharides, and is highly preferred among health-centric people. This factor would increase the demand for flour during the forecast period. Wheat is the most widely produced cereal in the world, most of which is for human consumption. Flours are used to make bread, bakery items, corn-based coating of fried food and fast food. Fast food restaurants show high consumption of flour as it is used in food items such as donuts, burgers, cakes, and fried meat.

The growth in population coupled with per capita income has increased the demand for flour, thus raising the flour production. The change in consumer towards urban and modern lifestyles has increased the demand for various types of flours in the preparation of fast foods items. Moreover, rise in health concerns for high-protein flour results in demand for flour millers to develop gluten-free flour alternatives. Change in taste and preference of consumers as well as dietary concerns for manufacturers to develop differentiated products have impacted the overall sales. Owing to improper warehousing influences, the flour market faces major problems in the form of contamination of food grains. Expansion of commercial farmlands and growth of aquatic feed industry in Asia-Pacific impact the application of flour in the animal feed segment.
