“Rising awareness about benefits of cocoa products facilitate market growth”

What restraints the growth of the cocoa products market?

“Limited cocoa production”

The limited cocoa production acts as a significant restraint on the cocoa products market. The cocoa supply depends on a few regions, primarily West Africa, which faces challenges such as aging cocoa farms, climate change impacts, and diseases affecting cocoa trees. These factors result in fluctuations in cocoa prices and supply shortages, which can disrupt the production and availability of cocoa products. Additionally, the limited cocoa production capacity restricts the market's ability to meet the growing global demand for cocoa-based products, posing a challenge for manufacturers and potentially impacting consumer access to cocoa products.
