Global Caramel Chocolate Market to Reach US$ 9.2 Billion by 2032, Stimulated by Escalating Demand for Salted Caramel Products

December 09, 2021 | Food & Beverages

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Caramel Chocolate Market Report by Distribution Channel (Supermarkets and Hypermarkets, Convenience Stores, Non-Grocery Retailers, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global caramel chocolate market reached a value of US$ 5.8 Billion in 2023. Caramel chocolate is a confectionery product with a sweet, nutty, buttery or bitter flavor that is obtained by heating a variety of sugars at a high temperature. It assists in making the taste profile of the white chocolate complex by giving it more depth and reducing the overall sweetness. As a result, it is widely utilized in the cakes, candies, brittles, nougats, pralines, flan, doughnuts, crème brûlée, crème caramel and caramel apples. It is also used as a flavoring in puddings and topping in custard and different ice creams. At present, the industry is witnessing the escalating demand for salted caramel chocolate treats, owing to the growing popularity of gourmet sea salt. 

Global Caramel Chocolate Market Trends:

The sweet and salty combination represents one of the biggest food trends across the globe. Consequently, there has been a rise in the demand for salted caramel chocolate products, such as cookies, cupcakes, martinis, pumpkin pies, coffee drinks, truffle ice creams and nut protein bars. Apart from this, on account of changing lifestyles and inflating income levels, the demand for premium products that have better flavor and quality is escalating around the world. Furthermore, the increasing prevalence of lifestyle diseases and the rising health consciousness among individuals have also increased the demand for caramel chocolate as they have lower amounts of fats and artificial sugar. Moreover, leading manufacturers operating in the industry are introducing smaller-sized portions of caramel chocolate products for consumers who wish to monitor their calorie intake. On account of these factors, the market value is projected to reach US$ 9.2 Billion by 2032.
