Global 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 global 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.
- Continuous Focus on Developing New Flavored and Unique Chocolates
The emerging trend of clean-label and organic products to maintain overall health and wellness has led to the rapid escalation in demand for premium or specialty chocolates. Introduction of unique taste and flavors have been seen to be a key factor that has been grabbing customers' attention. Moreover, companies are introducing their products with innovative ideas to secure their position in the Europe premium global chocolate market.
- In June 2021, Mondelez introduced Cadbury Caramilk, a caramelized white chocolate. The company is aimed to increase the range of products for millennials who are seeking sweeter tastes
- In February 2021, Nestle introduced Kitkat V, a vegan version of its Kitkat bar, which aimed to fulfill the demand for a vegan substitute for Kitkat candy. This new product is made up of a rice-based formula as a milk substitute, crispy wafers, and 100% sustainable cocoa
Thus, to increase the consumer base, introducing flavored and improved textures of chocolates will create potential opportunities for premium chocolate producers. The companies should introduce local and seasonal flavors to attract consumers, focusing both on health and taste. This could open up a whole new area for flavor innovation which is expected to create opportunity for the market.
- Fluctuating Prices of Raw Materials
The cost of chocolate has changed, but most consumers were unaware and the price volatility of chocolate is primarily influenced by the supply of chocolate drivers. The main component in chocolate production is cocoa, which is used in a variety of products. Chocolate are prepared by ingredients like sugar, dairy products, nuts, corn sweeteners, and energy are also required. The commodities market, which sets the price based on supply and demand levels and can cause varying levels of volatility on commodity prices, is primarily responsible for these commodities prices. Cocoa powder and cocoa butter are the two parts of cocoa that are used to make chocolate. Since it produces richer chocolates and is used in thin chocolate confectionery treats, cocoa butter is by far the more desirable of the two.
However, it is harder and more expensive to produce, any disruption in the supply of cocoa will eventually filter down and raise consumer prices. The fluctuating price of raw materials for production is expected to restrain the premium chocolate growth in the market.
