Europe Premium Chocolate Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025

Market Overview:

The Europe premium chocolate market exhibited strong growth during 2014-2019. Premium chocolates refer to the high-quality chocolate variants that are prepared from ultra-fine ingredients and require superior craftsmanship. These chocolates are infused with a variety of exotic flavors, including tropical fruits, peanut butter, caramel, mint, honey, salt, hazelnut, espresso, etc. Premium chocolates offer better taste and texture than conventional chocolates and are sold in standardized packaging with high-aesthetic value. In Europe, premium chocolates are widely available in the form of dark chocolates, milk chocolates, and white chocolates.

The market growth in Europe is primarily driven by the increasing consumption of premium dark chocolates. The rising consumer health concerns have led to the changing inclination from conventional milk chocolates towards premium dark chocolates. Additionally, the growing popularity of gourmet chocolates prepared from ultra-fine cocoa beans is further augmenting the market growth. Moreover, the emergence of organic, vegan, sugar-free, and gluten-free premium chocolates is also catalyzing the product demand in Europe. The high prevalence of clean eating trends among the European consumers has led to the replacement of synthetic additives with natural cocoa pulp in premium chocolates. Besides this, the increasing popularity of premium textured chocolates, added with high-quality grains, nuts, and cereals, is further driving the market growth. Apart from this, the market is also augmented by the branding of seasonal and premium chocolates as limited collection products. The European consumers are getting inclined towards attractive and luxury packaging for gifting premium chocolates on special occasions. Moreover, several manufacturers are also launching a wide range of premium chocolate varieties with specific shapes, patterns, and sizes, customized for Christmas, Halloween, and Easter. Furthermore, the growing penetration of liquor-based premium chocolates, particularly across the U.K., Germany, and Belgium, is also inducing the market growth. Besides this, the increasing demand for innovative flavors along with the emergence of personalized premium chocolates is also catalyzing the market. Furthermore, the growing number of private-label chocolatiers in the region, offering more artisanal and specialized products, is also expected to drive the market for premium chocolates in the region. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the Europe premium chocolate market to grow continuously during the next five years.
