This Market Update examines the confectionery industry in the UK. In 2013, the market continued its pattern of year-on-year growth, rising in value by 4.1% from 2012.

This figure is based on the combined sales of both chocolate and sugar confectionery, which are both analysed individually and in-depth in this Market Update. The former remains the dominant contributor to total market value, based on the popularity and variety of the four subsectors. Of these, single-serve countlines, sold in individual or multipack formats, remain the most valuable subsector in terms of sales. Yet boxed chocolates and sharing bags, as well as blocks and moulded bars, offer a multitude of increasingly popular products. Sugar confectionery, on the other hand, is led by the fruit sweets subsector, which offers a popular alternative to chocolate, particularly among younger demographics. Demand for other sugar confectionery, as well as chewing gum, bubble gum and mints, is less substantial, partially explaining why sugar confectionery as a whole is unable to compete with volume sales of chocolate confectionery in the UK market.
