Global Sugar Substitutes Market to Reach US$ 21.6 Billion by 2027, Fostered by Increasing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases

March 19, 2020

As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Sugar Substitutes Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global sugar substitutes market reached a value of US$ 16.5 Billion in 2021. Sugar substitutes are chemical or plant-based substances that replicate the taste of sugar. They are non-nutritive, high-intensity sweeteners, which are utilized for sweetening or enhancing the flavor of different food products and beverages, such as jellies, candies, puddings, canned food, baked goods, dairy products, soft drinks and powdered drink mixes. They are around 200 times sweeter than sugar and can help in weight loss, promoting dental health and maintaining the blood sugar levels.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Sugar Substitutes Market Trends:

Rapid urbanization, sedentary lifestyles and the increasing consumption of sugar-loaded products are resulting in the growing prevalence of obesity and other chronic diseases across the globe. As a result, individuals are making healthier choices and gravitating towards low-calorie products, which in turn is strengthening the sugar substitutes market growth. Apart from this, as the consumption of sugar results in tooth decay since the bacteria present in dental plaque metabolize sugar and release acid that can damage the teeth enamel, the demand for sugar substitutes is escalating worldwide. This can also be accredited to the dental benefits offered by sugar substitutes like stevia and their assistance in hindering the formation of plaque. Further, prominent vendors operating in the food and beverage (F&B) industry are replacing conventional sweeteners with artificial sweeteners in a diverse range of products to introduce low-calorie product variants and expand their existing consumer base. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 21.6 Billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 4.57% during 2022-2027.
