Chocolate Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

Market Overview:

The global chocolate market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period (2021-2026). Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

 Chocolate is an edible product that is prepared by roasting cacao seeds obtained from the pods of the Theobroma cacao trees. The cacao beans are harvested, fermented, dried and ground to form a paste. The paste is then put under high pressure for separating the chocolate liquor and cocoa butter. These two ingredients are further mixed in varying proportions to manufacture couverture, dark, milk, white and baking chocolate and cocoa powder. Chocolates are a rich source of various alkaloids, such as phenethylamine, caffeine, theobromine and flavonoids and are majorly used in the production of bakery goods and confectionery products, such as cakes, cookies, puddings and brownies.

Significant growth in the food and beverage industry is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, increasing consumer preference for molded chocolates, which typically include the solid shaped or segmented bar/block variants infused with various additional flavors or stuffed with nuts, raisins and other fillings, is also providing a boost to the market growth. Additionally, rising awareness regarding the health benefits of consuming dark chocolate is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Regular consumption of dark chocolate in moderate quantities is known to improve blood circulation in the body, enhance brain function, lower blood pressure and minimize the risks of heart diseases. Other factors, such as the premiumization of chocolate-based products, utilization of aesthetically appealing packaging to attract consumers’ attention, along with the production of organic, vegan and sugar- and gluten-free chocolates, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global chocolate market to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
