The global sugar-free confectionery market grew at a CAGR of around 5% during 2015-2020. A sugar-free confectionery uses artificial or natural sweeteners as a sugar substitute in the preparation of sweets and chocolates. These sweeteners are required in a smaller quantity compared to white table sugar for providing a sweet taste with reduced calories, carbohydrates, and glycemic response. Presently, sugar-free confectionery products are gaining traction among individuals with diabetes as their consumption does not elevate the blood sugar level. Moreover, the rising awareness about the negative impact of regular sugar intake on health is promoting the adoption of sugar-free confectionery worldwide as a safe alternative to sugar-based products.
A significant rise in the number of individuals suffering from obesity and diabetes represents one of the key factors contributing to the sugar-free confectionery market growth. Moreover, as natural sugar substitutes reduce the risk of decay and erosion of teeth, the growing focus on maintaining oral health is driving the market. In line with this, the increasing preference for consuming reduced-calorie and sugar-free food products for managing weight is also influencing the market positively. Besides this, inflating disposable incomes are escalating the demand for premium product variants. Furthermore, the leading market players are offering organic and innovative flavors to enhance their product portfolio. They are also introducing a wide range of sugar-free confectionery items, such as dragées, fudges, candies, jellies, gummies, gums, peppermints and toffees. Apart from this, the introduction of functional sugar-free confectionery items is anticipated to drive the market in the coming years.
