Key Market Trends

Growing demand for low calorie and sugar-free candies

Low-calorie products, such as sugar-free candies, will be the driving force behind the modest growth in the global candy market over the forecast period. High sugar intake is a cause for concern because it is linked to a number of health problems. To avoid sugar when consuming candy, many people choose sugar-free options. To make sugar-free candy sweet, there are two classes of sweeteners that are typically used; sugar alcohols and artificial sweeteners. The sugar-reduction movement has caused manufacturers to use an increasing amount of sugar replacers or natural sweeteners instead of their new products. The health trend has not only fostered a shift in ingredients for the candy industry, but also a new pack sizing strategies.
