Global Candy Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Disposable Income will Fuel the Market

With the rise in the living standards of middle-class consumers, emerging markets have observed categories like candies to report huge spending of disposable income. The demand for candies has always been strong during the time of festivities in developed countries, but due to improved lifestyles, even developing countries have seen exponential growth in consumerism. Furthermore, the modernization of the e-commerce industry and websites is also aiding the growth of the global candy market. Customers' increasing spending power is another important factor driving the global candy market forward.

Innovation in Products

Due to the changing preferences of the population, the candy market always hustles to bring new flavors and textures that can satisfy consumer’s taste buds. For instance, in December 2020, Jelly Belly, a US-based candy company, introduced a line of vegan gummy candies that do not contain gelatin. Apple, Berry, Lemon, Orange, and Very Cherry are among the five flavors available in the vegan line. Besides these, in April 2021,  Pecan Deluxe candy launched Popping Boba—tiny, juice-filled spheres encased in an edible shell that explodes with flavors. It is the latest addition to Pecan Deluxe Candy Company's product lineup.

Restraints

Rising Health Concern

Apart from their delicious taste, candies are unquestionably a recognized cause for many diseases such as diabetes, and obesity due to their high sugar which is harmful to health. According to Our World In Data, a project of the Global Change Data Lab, obesity was responsible for 8% of global deaths in 2017. Moreover, one in every five children and adolescents worldwide is overweight.  Aside from that, there has been a significant rise in public health awareness. Physical fitness has become a must as a result of the pandemic, as a result of which a section of people prefers avoiding sugar-filled candies.   Some other harmful effects of candies are tooth decay, which is exacerbated when sweets get trapped between teeth, Excessive candy intake can also cause blood glucose levels to fluctuate rapidly. Thus, the aforementioned factors are limiting the market growth to a great extent.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Candy Market

No industry has been left untouched by COVID-19 and this includes the candy industry as well. Sales and production reported a steep decline due to the shutdown of manufacturing units. The mint and gums category suffered a setback too; nevertheless, chocolate confectioneries continue to rise in demand because it has become a necessary indulgence for people working from home during the ongoing pandemic. The market for dark chocolate is witnessing unprecedented growth owing to the impulsive purchase behavior of consumers. As a result, COVID-19 had only a short-term effect on the global candy industry.

Global Candy Market- By Type

Based on type, the global candy market is bifurcated into chocolate candy, non-chocolate candy, hard rolled candy, breath sweeteners, caramels, gummies, deictic candy, marshmallows, licorice, lollipops, sours, chewing gums, cotton candy. Among these, the non-chocolate category accounts for the lion's share of the market. This can be attributed to the availability of multiple candy flavors, their appearance, and mouth-feel. The major manufacturers are now focusing on product development in line with the organic food culture globally. At the same time, manufacturers are taking all possible measures to adhere to the strict regulations on the amount of sugar content. For instance, Public Health England (PHE) recommends that chocolate should contain 43.7g of sugar per 100g. Besides this, food colorings, sweeteners, vegan, and other ingredients are some of the considerations to remember. As a result, manufacturers are focusing on clean-labeled manufacturing.

However, the online sales channel is the fastest-growing segment due to its advanced customer experience and time-saving properties. COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis are also responsible for its increased demand. Young consumers born in the digital era, such as millennials and Generation Z, are also driving consumerism through online shopping.

Global Candy Market- By Region

Based on region, the global candy market is segmented into five regions, North America, Europe, the Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. The Asia-Pacific dominates the overall global candy market due to the high demand for candies from the young population and children. Moreover, the impulsive purchase behavior of consumers is another primary reason fuelling the market growth.
