ALBANY, New York, August 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

A constant rise in demand for healthy and nutritious product varieties, with low-calorie and sugar-free products gaining high consumer preference, and the demand for convenient snacks are some of the key trends impacting the overall development of the present-day Switzerland biscuits market. The rising numbers of international and domestic tourists in the country and steady growth in the retail sector post the economic turmoil of 2008 are aiding the market in moving along a sustainable growth path.

However, rising raw material, labor, and packaging costs and the need to hold on to prices to withstand the intense competition in the market are collectively leading to a stagnant rise in profit margins for manufacturers. Transparency Market Research estimates that the Switzerland biscuits market will expand at a CAGR of 1.7% over the period between 2016 and 2024, rising from a valuation of US$973.3 mn in 2015 to US$1,125.7 mn by 2024. The market will expand at a 1.2% CAGR in terms of volume over the same period.

Rising Raw Material Costs to Intensify Price-war Among Key Vendors 

The minimum selling prices of essential raw materials required for the production of a variety of biscuits have witnessed price rise of in the range of 25-30% over the past few years. While trying to hold on to prices of their products in the intensely competitive market, most biscuit manufacturers have tried ways of reducing production costs. On an average, biscuit companies have profit margins between 3% and 5%.

Apart from the rising prices of raw materials, a rise in labor and packaging costs have resulted in a substantial rise in input costs. Thus the growth in these profit margins has remained stagnant in the past few years. High input prices are expected to remain one of the most significant factors impacting the overall development of the Switzerland biscuits market in the next few years.
