Top Factors Shaping the Fructose Market

Lower Manufacturing Costs of Fructose Creating Room for the Entry of New Market Players

Manufacturing costs of fructose, especially high fructose corn syrups and fructose syrups is lower as compared to the manufacturing of sugar. This is due to the liquid not having to be packed separately, which reduces time and labour costs. Also, as high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and fructose syrups are liquids, they can be easily incorporated into other liquids unlike granulated sugar, fructose and other sweeteners available in solid state. Heating is required to dissolve these solids, which requires more energy. Thus, these syrups save upon the cost of production.

The benefits of fructose in the food industry are immense and thus, increasing demand has led to new players entering the market. Also, the production of fructose from corn is higher than from any other source. However, the demand for HFCS is decreasing as the health concerns due to its consumption are increasing. The production of crystalline fructose is increasing as the demand for natural products is high as compared to artificial sweeteners that are available in the market.

Consumption of Convenience Food Products Surges in Line with Shifting Lifestyle Preferences in Developed Countries

The consumption of fast food and food away from home has increased in the United States in the past few decades. This is the case in all developed countries. Amongst these convenience foods, clean label and natural ingredients have become top priorities of consumers. This increase in convenience food consumption has resulted in higher demand for natural food ingredients. This has increased the demand for fructose as it is increasingly being used in food products.

Also, the increasing direct costs of diet-related diseases have led to the consumers paying more attention to the food that they consume. This has pushed the manufacturers to use ingredients that are healthy and add a nutritional quotient to the food products and not just economical ingredients. This has replaced sugar with fructose in such products.

Fructose Extracted from Sources Such as Fruits and Vegetables High in Demand, with Rising Trend of Clean Label Products

The growing need for transparency and authenticity in the food and beverages sector in developed markets is to ensure that the food comes from recognizable ingredients. The pressure to reduce the use of artificial ingredients and increased legislative regulations around labelling are putting added expectations on brands worldwide. For companies that do comply with these products, it is an added benefit as they can gain consumer trust and at the same time the product value increases. This has led to increase in demand for fructose that is extracted from other sources such as fruits and vegetables, in the upcoming years and the consumers are ready to pay a premium price for such products.
