Italy: sales value of gluten-free pasta 2018, by type

What type of organic gluten-free pasta had the highest sales value in Italy? In 2018, the value of rice pasta sales reached approximately 944 thousand euros. It was roughly 15 times higher than the value registered by corn pasta in Italy. However, with a value of 5.6 billion euros in 2018, other types of gluten-free pasta sales were leading the market. This could be explained by the variety of gluten-free pasta products available on the market, such as quinoa, chickpea, or multigrain pasta.

From sales value to sales volume of gluten-free pasta in Italy

In 2018, more than seven thousand tons of other types of gluten-free pasta were sold in Italy. However, when comparing figures from the first half of 2018 and the first half of 2019, that pasta was not the most profitable product of the gluten-free market in Italy. In fact, crunchy bread crisps were leading the market in terms of revenue.

Gluten-free pasta sales in the global market’s perspective

Overall, gluten-free pasta was one of the most profitable products of the global gluten-free market. According to the data, its sales accounted for roughly 13 percent of the global gluten-free food market in 2018. In addition, sales are expected to further increase by 2022.
