Global Confectionery Ingredient Market: Snapshot
The significant rise in the consumption of confectionery and bakery items has been influencing the growth of the confectionery ingredients market at the global level. The heavy demand for chocolate, sugar confectionery, and bakery products is likely to accelerate the progress of this market in the next few years. The influence of the western culture on the food habits of consumers in developing economies is also expected to boost the demand for confectionery in the near future, reflecting substantially on the sales of confectionery ingredients.
The increasing demand for better food, fueled by the frequent changes in consumers’ lifestyle, have made it very difficult for food product manufacturers to meet the tastes and requirements of consumers, which has prompted confectionery producers to explore the market scope with the use of ingredients. This, as a result, is anticipated to open new growth avenues for the worldwide market for confectionery ingredients over the forthcoming years. The opportunity in this market is likely to rise at a CAGR of 4.20% between 2017 and 2025, progressing from a value of US$76.25 bn in 2016 to US$109.48 bn by the end of 2025.
