Food Sweetener Market in Europe 2018-2023: A $13 Billion Market Opportunity - ResearchAndMarkets.com

May 16, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2018--The “Europe Food Sweetener Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

In 2016, the global market for food sweeteners was valued at USD 78 billion. It is expected to increase at a CAGR of 3.4% to reach nearly USD 112 billion during the forecast period of 2018-2023.

The European food sweetener market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 1.7% to reach USD 13 billion by 2023, from an estimated market value of nearly USD 11.5 billion in 2017.

Europe accounts for the third largest market for bulk sweeteners after America, with a global market share of around 17%. The high consumption and production of bakery and confectionery products in Europe have increased its application market. Russia holds the major share in the region, followed by the Germany (as per sweetener consumption).

The sweetener market is segmented into bulk sweeteners and sugar substitutes. The growth in the sugar substitutes market is due to increased awareness and usage of dietary foods. Another major driver is the growing population of overweight, obese, and diabetic patients, which is resulting in growth in this category. Although presently sugar substitutes do not constitute a major share of the market, this is the fastest growing segment due to the rising health concerns among people. Aspartame and sucralose are the most famous sweeteners in the HIS (High Intensity Sweeteners) segment. Stevia is also seeing high demand in the natural sweeteners category.

In 2011, the European Regulation granted the authorization for the use of steviol glycoside in specified food products, which augmented the sweetener market. The growing consumer trends towards natural ingredients and clean label solution in Europe have driven the natural sweetener market. Increased alcohol production in Europe is the biggest factor for sugar and sweetener consumption.
