The global oat-based snacks market is anticipated to reach a CAGR of 4.74% during the forecast period.

Oats are healthy but not very easy to consume as it is. Consumers associate the taste of oats to be bland and they need to be cooked. However, there is considerable consumer awareness about the nutritious properties of oats and hence oat-based snacks can be an easy substitute for porridge owing to the high fiber and antioxidant content. They are a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins and minerals too.

Oats are extremely nutritious and have been made consumption-friendly in the form of numerous products that promote weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and reduced risks of heart disease. Thus, the multiple health benefits offered by oats are so far expected to drive the market of oat-based snacks.

Owing to the growing demand, the snack bar product type segment is forecasted to account for the maximum revenue share in the global oat-based snack market in 2018.
