Confectionery products are food items rich in sugar and other sweeteners. They are made using a wide range of ingredients, which help in improving the texture, appearance, and elasticity of products. These ingredients also function as stabilizer, emulsifier, gelling, and thickening agents. At present, the ongoing trend of gifting confectionery products, including cookies, chocolates, and bakery items, is offering lucrative growth opportunities to market players. As a result, key manufacturers are focusing on expanding their product portfolio by incorporating confectionery products made using tropical, nut-based, and exotic flavors to suit the taste and preferences of consumers.
Changing consumer taste, rapid urbanization, increasing working population, and rising purchasing power of individuals are among the key factors catalyzing the demand for ready-to-eat (RTE) products like confectionery items across the globe. Moreover, the rising prevalence of lifestyle diseases, such as obesity and diabetes, is resulting in the increasing popularity of functional confectionery. It includes items made using vitamins, minerals, cannabidiol (CBD), fiber, protein, omega-3s, probiotics, and energy supplements without calories and sugar. This, along with the rising consumption of nutraceuticals and sports nutrition, is contributing to market growth. Apart from this, the leading manufacturers are introducing gluten-free and organic product variants with no additives and preservatives and reduced allergens. In confluence with this, a significant shift in consumer preferences towards healthy, sustainable, and clean-label confectionery is influencing the market positively. Furthermore, key manufacturers are also developing premium products in innovative flavors and textures. The easy availability of these products through e-commerce channels, in confluence with the increasing penetration of the internet and boosting sales of smartphones, is creating a favorable outlook for the market.
