Industrial Chocolate Market Dynamics
- Growing awareness about benefits of industrial chocolate
The growing awareness of the health benefits of consuming cocoa-rich products drives the growth of the industrial chocolate market. Cocoa helps reduce hypertension, chronic fatigue syndrome, protection against sunburn, and other health benefits to the human body. Cocoa also contains polyphenols, which serve to protect bodily tissues from oxidative stress and related diseases such as cancer and inflammation. These factors are also propelling the industrial chocolate markets forward.
- Manufacturer’s constant efforts to increase sales volume through different tactics and strategies
Increased demand for chocolate and related products such as milk chocolate, sweet chocolate, and dark chocolate, and advertising by manufacturers to increase brand recognition, are driving the growth of the industrial chocolate market. Other factors expected to drive the market include the premiumization of chocolate-based products, the use of aesthetically appealing packaging to attract consumers' attention, and the production of organic, vegan, sugar- and gluten-free chocolates.
Furthermore, rising R&D activities and increased modernization in new products on the market will open up new opportunities for the industrial chocolate market. Nonetheless, dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa is a good source of antioxidants and minerals, creating a huge market opportunity.

COVID-19 Impact on Industrial Chocolate Market
The cocoa market was impacted by low sales volumes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as supply-side issues related to quality and certification. In terms of exports, the Fine Cacao and Chocolate Institute (FCCI) conducted a survey on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the results were troubling. According to reports in the Dominican Republic, the harsh lockdown prevented producers and agricultural workers from visiting the plantations for several weeks until the authorities granted exceptions. As a result of the disruption in the raw material supply chain, followed by lockdown, an increasing number of specialty stores are remaining closed for an extended period of time, and volume consumption of premium chocolates is decreasing.
