Global Cocoa Beans Market - Segmented by Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

The global cocoa bean market is expected to register a double-digit growth during the forecast period (2018-2023) compared to the value of USD 13.38 billion in 2015. The international market price of cocoa is very volatile. It was forecasted that during 2016 that the crop prices will go down due to expected surplus supplies. However, the low prices were expected to drive the demand in the coming years with expected changes in product pipelines of major confectionery companies. The high prices in 2015 led to lesser profits in grinding, which in turn forced grinding companies to close their operations at various places.

Increase in Demand for High-quality Cocoa is Driving the Market

Cocoa beans have captured the attention of consumers from around the world, due to the fast growth of the chocolate confectionery market. Other factors stimulating the market growth include increasing disposable income among the middle-class, increasing the popularity of high-quality cocoa, and falling prices for cocoa beans. However, commodity price fluctuation, pest & diseases, low productivity, high dependence on seasons & environmental conditions, and the high cost of farm inputs are restraining market growth.

Africa is the dominant player

Currently, the market is dominated by the inorganic cocoa bean, however, in the coming years, the demand of organic cocoa bean is expected to increase globally. Africa is the largest producer of cocoa, accounting for 72% of the global production, followed by Latin America and Asia-Pacific. Europe is the largest consumer and importer, followed by North America.

Major cocoa bean exporting countries include Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia, Indonesia, and Malaysia, among others. The major grinding facilities are located in the Americas and Europe.
