Awareness of the celiac disease has further increased the demand for gluten-free food products, including gluten-free chocolates. The increasing consumption of gluten-free foods is expected to drive the growth of the market at a CAGR of over 13% during 2019-2023.

Governments across the world are taking initiatives to increase awareness about the health risks associated with gluten consumption. Many health groups and organizations are educating people about the impact of gluten food consumption. The increasing awareness programs about the consumption of gluten food will have a positive impact on the growth of the global gluten-free chocolate market size.

The high-costs of gluten-free chocolates are restricting their demand among consumers. The cost of equipment and ingredients that are used to produce gluten-free chocolates are typically more expensive. Such a high expenditure adds to the manufacturer’s production costs which have an inflationary impact on the prices of gluten-free chocolates. This is expected to hinder the growth of the global gluten-free chocolate market.
