Global Sugar Market to Reach 219.2 Million Tons by 2032, Propelled by Considerable Growth in Food and Beverage Industry

July 05, 2022 | Food & Beverages

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Sugar Market Report by Product Type (White Sugar, Brown Sugar, Liquid Sugar), Form (Granulated Sugar, Powdered Sugar, Syrup Sugar), End-Use Sector (Food and Beverages, Pharma and Personal Care, Household), Source (Sugarcane, Sugar Beet), and Region 2024-2032,” the global sugar market size reached 192.1 Million Tons in 2023. Sugar refers to a sweet-tasting group of simple carbohydrates that are naturally found in many foods, including fruits, vegetables, and dairy products. Commercially it is marketed in the form of a crystalline substance prepared from sugar cane and sugar beet. It comprises carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms arranged in a specific molecular structure. Sugar is an essential source of energy and is extensively added to processed foods and drinks to improve their taste and texture. It finds numerous other applications in the food industry, such as catalyzing the fermentation of yeast-containing products, retaining moisture, and preventing staleness in baked products. Apart from this, it is used as a preservative to inhibit the development of microorganisms and prevent the formation of large ice crystals in frozen products like ice cream. 

Global Sugar Market Trends:

The bolstering expansion of the food and beverages (F&B) industry is the key factor driving the global sugar market growth. Besides this, the rising demand for processed and packaged food products and the increasing consumption of soft drinks and sports and energy drinks are presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. In addition to this, the surging demand for various confectionery and bakery products, such as candies, chocolates, sweets, cakes, bread, pastries, and cookies, particularly among children and teenagers, is contributing to the market growth. Concurrent with this, the rising popularity of dairy products, such as ice cream, yogurt, and flavored milk, is aiding in market expansion. Moreover, the large-scale use of sugar across the pharmaceutical sector in the preparation of antibiotics and cough syrups, as well as extensive product adoption in personal care products, such as scrubs and exfoliators, are creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, rapid urbanization, the rising population, changing dietary habits, inflating disposable incomes, and the thriving quick service restaurant (QSR) sector are strengthening the market growth. Looking forward, the market volume is projected to reach 219.2 Million Tons by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 1.4% during 2024-2032.
