Key Takeaways - Artificial Sweeteners Market Study

  • Artificial sweeteners have nearly zero calories in a serving as compared to a teaspoon of sugar, which contains approximately 16 calories. Increasing adoption of healthy lifestyles is, in turn, reducing sugar consumption across the globe. For instance, according to the U.S Department of Agriculture, sugar consumption in New York slumped by 25% in 2018 as compared to the previous year.
  • Artificial sweeteners are increasingly used in manufacturing processed food products such as candies, jellies, baked goods, sauces, canned foods, ice cream, soft drinks, and yogurt, apart from various dairy products.  Increasing preference for sugar-free products is a key artificial sweeteners market trend, which will bode well in the foreseeable future.
  • Artificial sweeteners are used as preservatives in multiple canned and frozen food products. According to FAO, global frozen food products sales was valued at US$ 26 Bn in 2001. Consumption of frozen food products is increasing worldwide, creating a favorable environment for market growth.
  • Healthy beverages consumption has seen a rapid rise in the recent past, on the back of increasing adoption of healthy lifestyles.
  • Bakery goods and beverages will remain at the forefront in terms of demand, accounting for a collective value share of around 40%.

Research and development aimed at reducing hyper-intense sweetness of most artificial sweeteners and positioning these as diabetic-safe taste enhancers can pay rich dividends to manufacturers.
