Global Sugar Confectionery Products Market Size, Segments, Outlook, and Revenue Forecast 2022-2028 by Product Type (Gums, Jellies, Hard-Boiled Sweets, Caramel & Toffees, Mints, and Medicated Confectionery), Packaging Type (Sachet and Box), Distribution Channel (Hypermarket/Supermarket, Departmental Store, Confectionery Stores, and Online Retails), and Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America Middle East and Africa (LAMEA))

Market Overview

Market Overview

Sweets are sugar-based confections that are consumed by almost all socioeconomic categories. These goods come in a wide range of varieties, from individually wrapped candies to pricey goods in elegant packaging. The chosen type of confectioneries frequently varies by geographic region because of differences in regulatory norms and other considerations including economy, flavor, and customer desire.

According to Ken Research Analysis, the Global Sugar Confectionery Products Market is expected to record a positive CAGR of ~4% during the forecast period (2022-2028) and is expected to reach approximately US$ 55 billion by 2028.

The sugar confectionery market is in growth at a steady pace on account of the rise in demand for on-the-go snacks, an increase in gifting trends, the introduction of new products with innovative flavors & healthy ingredients, and growth in the retail market

  • One of the main causes of the need for convenience snacks as part of the daily diet is rising modernization and a busy combination of work and personal commitments. Due to their busy schedules, customers are forced to hunt for quick-to-prepare food items because they are unable to spend time cooking or dining out during their working hours. Nowadays, as there are more consumers in the workplace, it is more difficult for them to maintain a healthy work-life balance. To provide consumers with a balanced diet, producers and marketers are actively profiting from the introduction and promotion of a variety of chocolate snacks, including on-the-go snacks, chocolate bars, and others.

Strict government regulations to limit the market growth

  • Strict government regulations are anticipated to protect the quality of these items in nations including the USA, Germany, the UK, China, and India, which presents challenges for new market entrants. The hygienic standards for consumption are ensured by the established federal guidelines and rules which is putting pressure on the current organizations to match the standards.  

Given the implementation of numerous industrial trade and manufacturing restrictions during 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had a moderate impact on the sugar confectionery business as evidenced by the dropping sales of snacks, notably sweets. To balance the rising COVID-related stress levels, consumers' rising propensity and willingness to spend more on food products helped to improve product demand during the pandemic.

Key Trends by Market Segment

By Product Type: The hard-boiled sweets segment held the largest market share in the global sugar confectionery products market in 2021.

  • From 2022 to 2028, the hard-boiled sweets segment will gain market share for sugar confectionery due to its increased appeal among children. This kind of candy is simple to make and comes in a shiny state. Some of the most popular hard-boiled candies include fruit drops, barley sugars, acid drops, hard gums, butterscotch, toffee, and caramel. Another element affecting the demand for the product is an increase in consumption to swiftly raise blood sugar levels.

By Packaging Type: The sachet segment held the largest share of the global sugar confectionery products market in 2021.

  • Sachets are compact, portable packaging options that are easy to handle. Although sachet packets are manufactured of a variety of materials, they require less packaging material and storage space, which lowers the cost of transportation. Sachets have a three- or four-sided sealing and are flat in design.

By Distribution Channel: The confectionery store distribution channel segment held the largest share of the global sugar confectionery products market in 2021.

  • For the purchase of consumer goods, groceries, confectionary items like chocolate, and other items where they can physically inspect the product quality, consumers are increasingly choosing confectionery stores.
  • Furthermore, the segment's expansion is projected to be fueled by consumers' ease of access to and browsing of a variety of confectionery products in stores. The increased consumer demand for chocolate, cookies, and ice cream is also encouraging manufacturers to create new stores in malls, which will fuel the rise of the offline segment in the future years.

By Geography: Asia Pacific accounted for the largest market share in 2021 within the total global sugar confectionery products market.

  • Due to factors such as rising urbanization and the widespread availability of functional confectionary food and beverages, Asia-Pacific is expected to experience significant growth. Since the majority of Asian cuisine is healthy and nutritious, there is a high demand for low-calorie products like sugar-free confectionaries and low-carbohydrate foods in Asia Pacific countries like India and Japan. This demand is anticipated to be the main driver of the modest growth in the global confectionery market over the course of the forecast period. As a result of the health problems associated with a high-sugar diet, Asian countries are moving toward sugar-free confections. Two categories of sweeteners—sugar alcohols and artificial sweeteners—are frequently employed to create sugar-free chocolate and gums.
