Natural Sweeteners Market

The growing presence of chronic diseases and the rise in the population suffering from obesity are poised to provide lucrative opportunities for market growth. The rising popularity of several diet weight loss plans, such as the ketogenic, paleolithic, HCG, and low-carb diets, among others, are fueling the demand for natural sweeteners, especially among young adults. Natural sweeteners are unprocessed and more efficient sweeteners as compared to table sugar which has diminishing effects on the insulin levels of the body. These factors are speculated to favor the product landscape.

Furthermore, the booming bakery sector is also propelling product penetration. As a result of innovations in the food & beverages industry, many people are opting for naturally sweetened desserts and bakery products. Growing preference for low-calorie bread, pastries, muffins, and other products, is encouraging bakers to opt for natural sweeteners. For instance, in November 2022, Tate & Lyle, a supplier of food & beverages, added ERYTESSE Erythritol sweetener to its portfolio, particularly for use in beverages and bakery items.

Availability of artificial sweeteners may restrain industry progression

The availability of various artificial sweeteners is a major factor restraining natural sweeteners market growth. Rapid technological advancements in the food & beverage industry have resulted in the advent of artificial sweeteners, which has hampered product penetration in several applications. These sweeteners have gained massive attention due to easy accessibility to raw materials used in the manufacturing process of artificially curated sweeteners. Nevertheless, the growing awareness regarding the health benefits of natural sweeteners is likely to eventually aid in overcoming the issue.
