Icing Sugar Market Projected Growth Rate (2022-2032)

6.78% CAGR

Icing sugar, also called powdered sugar or confectioners' sugar is a finely powered form of sugar added with anticaking agent like corn starch or potato starch. It is usually produced by milling granulated sugar across large manufacturing industries. The addition of starch helps to absorb moisture, prevents clumping and improves flow.

Over the last few years, icing sugar has gained immense traction across food production industries where quick dissolving sugar is required. It is being increasingly used in baking and confectionery applications, dessert making and quick preparation of juices, milkshakes and other beverages on account of its ability to easily dissolve in liquids.

The fine texture of icing sugar makes it suitable for dusting over cakes, pastries, and pies to sweeten them as well as to add an attractive decorative touch. It can also be used to make icing and fondants for sweets and cakes. The icing sugar, however, has to be used within a short period of time to minimize the risk of caking.

Rising consumption of bakery and confectionery products across the globe due to changing eating habits, rapidly growing population and increasing spending by people will continue to provide a strong thrust to the growth of icing sugar market during the forecast period.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spurring the Growth of Icing Sugar Market?

Rapid growth of bakery and confectionery industries, changing consumer preferences and eating habits, and growing popularity of icing sugar across diverse industries due to its quick dissolving ability and anticaking properties are some of the major factors driving the global icing sugar market.

Icing sugar has become a more commonly used form of sugar adopted across bakery and confectionery sectors due to its fine nature. It is being increasingly used for preparing icing and frosting for baked items, desserts and sweets. Adoption of this sugar has significantly improved the quality of food products. Rising need for maintaining a fine structure and texture in food products will continue to generate sales prospects within the global icing sugar market.

The hectic lifestyle and changing food habits have resulted in the rapid expansion of bakery industry across developing regions like APAC and MEA. This in turn is generating sales prospects for icing sugar.

Majority of the icing sugar sales remain concentrated in foodservice and food processing industries. This can be attributed to the increase in the number of cafes, hotels and restaurants along with the growing preference of food manufacturers towards using icing sugar over granulated form.

Similarly, innovations in the packaging form coupled with increasing penetration of online shopping platforms will further boost the sales of icing sugar in the future.
