The global alternative sweetener market is expanding at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2015 to 2021. It was evaluated at US$11.5 bn in 2014 and is expected to reach US$15.4 bn by the end of 2021.
North America Likely to Continue Leading Demand for Alternative Sweeteners
The global alternative sweetener market’s regional segmentation includes the key regions of North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and rest of the world. Among these, North America had taken up the leading share in the global alternative sweetener market for 2014, a factor attributed to the growing obesity epidemic, increasing risks associated with cardiovascular diseases, and the growing number of patients suffering from diabetes. Food and beverage makers in North America are concentrating hard on the development and commercialization of low calorie and sugar free products to meet the consumers need in North America.
Furthermore, the growing count of obese consumers is resulting in a steady decline in the overall consumption of soft drinks in North America as well as Europe, thereby creating a fall in demand for high intensity sweeteners. Consequently, the demand for sweeteners has experienced a significant paradigm shift in terms in consumer choices in two regions that are currently considered the core market regions by top players in this market. At the same time, Asia Pacific, which held the second leading share in the global alternative sweetener market for 2014, is likely to show a growth in demand, marked by growing consumer awareness.
