White Chocolate Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023

$ 1499


White chocolate is made with cocoa butter, sugar, milk products, vanilla, and a fatty emulsifier called lecithin that holds all the ingredients together. Among these, cocoa butter is the prime ingredient used in white chocolate which provides a subtle flavour. Traditionally, white chocolate is not considered ‘chocolate’ in proper sense as it does not contain chocolate solids or chocolate powder, which gives chocolates a bitter, tannic, and berry-like flavour. Rather, the quality of white chocolate is determined by its colour. Although, it is available in white, pale yellow or ivory colours, the latter two are considered superior as they tend to contain more percentage of cocoa butter. The latest report by IMARC Group titled, “White Chocolate Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, finds that the global white chocolate market reached a value of US$ 17.6 Billion in 2017, growing at a CAGR of 1.5% during 2010-2017.

Owing to its expanding applications, the market for white chocolate is expected to reach a value of US$ 18 Billion by 2023.
