Surging uptake of personal care products is driving the overall market growth. The demand for rare sugar, which is used in several types of cosmetics, such as scrubs, lotions, moisturizers, and serums, owing to its moisture retention capabilities and nontoxic nature, is poised to increase as the personal care industry is witnessing an upsurge in demand for high-quality & natural components. In 2020, the market for natural and organic personal care products in North America was worth more than USD 5.5 billion.

Furthermore, snowballing consumer preference for convenience and ready-to-eat products is also propelling the industry outlook. Rare sugar is commonly used as a sweetener in ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, diet soft beverages, and other goods. This indicates that the demand for rare sugar is set to increase in line with the soaring demand for convenience foods. Convenience food sales in Asia generated over USD 282 billion in revenue in 2020, and nearly USD 300 billion in revenue in 2021.

Strict government regulations may restrain rare sugar market progression

Stringent government regulations are restraining product outreach. Players in the business are likely to face considerable challenges as a result of strong government rules and compliances designed to protect consumer interests through strict labeling and manufacturing procedures. For instance, in April 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration formed guidelines regarding the number of calories in allulose for nutrition & supplement applications. Nonetheless, long-term contracts of suppliers with manufacturers to optimize their production capacities are speculated to aid in overcoming this issue.
