Sweet Potatoes Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail below:
- VARIOUS NUTRITION BENEFITS OF SWEET POTATOES
Today's consumers are more inclined to nutrient-rich, naturally healthy food products. Customers have developed a special interest in foods that are low in calories, high in protein, free of gluten, and made from plants. Along with this increased awareness, customers have taken a particular interest in reading the nutrition label to ensure that the products are healthy. Due to sweet potatoes' high vitamin and mineral content, consumers have increased their consumption as this trend reaches its peak in the market.
In addition to these benefits, sweet potatoes are also rich in antioxidants, which protect the body against free radicals that can damage DNA. Due to their fibrous nature, sweet potatoes also support gut health and help in digestion. Anthocyanin and other color-related pigments in sweet potatoes are anti-inflammatory.
Moreover, sweet potatoes also promote healthy eyesight, as they are rich in beta-carotene, which converts into vitamin A in the human body and forms light-detecting receptors inside the eyes. Thus, with so many health benefits, the consumption of sweet potatoes is increasing, which is expected to drive the North America sweet potatoes market.
- GROWTH TARIFF CHARGES ON THE SWEET POTATOES
The high import tariffs different nations have placed on sweet potatoes is one issue that significantly impacts the North America market's expansion.
The value chain of the manufacturers of sweet potato products is severely impacted by these abrupt changes in the tariff charges for sweet potatoes because higher tariff charges raise the price of raw materials. These tariff charges increase the cost of production for the goods and result in lower profits or losses for the manufacturers. Due to the difficulty of growing sweet potatoes and the rising cost of sweet potato cultivation, there has been an increase in tariff charges.
Thus, in conclusion, such increased tariff charges will increase the overall cost of production of the sweet potato product manufacturers in the world, which will result in restraining the growth of the overall market across regions.
- VARIOUS PRODUCT LAUNCHES AND DEVELOPMENTS
A new requirement has driven the market in these changing times. This need is expressed in the demand for natural nutrition products. Among them, there has been a surge in demand for products on the market that are used in various applications, including baking, cooking, processed foods, and others. This demand has led to some developments in the market.
- BRAND EQUITY OF THE PRODUCT
The market has most local players rather than many major players or brand names because sweet potatoes are difficult to grow and are primarily exported from China and the United States. This has made it extremely difficult for any market brand equity. As a result, the market has faced several difficulties, including:
The market has no customer loyalty, as there are many local suppliers available in the market. Without customer loyalty, there cannot be a developed relationship between suppliers and producers.
There aren't many product developments because the market isn't very competitive.
The manufacturers can differentiate between only the quantity and quality of the products in the market.
Due to these factors, only a small number of producers specialize in sweet potatoes and their products on the market. Many producers only produce sweet potatoes and their products as a side business.
Due to a lack of brand equity, manufacturers can only expand into their local market, which limits their market growth.
Manufacturers find it difficult to enter this market due to these issues. Additionally, because sweet potatoes require a lengthy time commitment for any returns on investment, many manufacturers are hesitant to enter this market and instead opt to only pursue sweet potatoes as a side business, which limits the sweet potato's ability to spread throughout the world.
