India Food Sweetener Market Dynamics

Sugar dictates more than 80% share in this market. The major constraint in the sugar market is the volatility in prices, leading to market fluctuations. India is currently the world largest consumer of sugar with domestic consumption increasing by more than 4% annually.

India Food Sweetener Market Segmentation

The sweetener market is segmented into sugar, high-intensity sweeteners (HIS) and high-fructose corn syrup. The market for HIS is expected to reach nearly USD 2.2 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 5.1%. This growth is due to increased awareness and usage of dietary foods. Another major driver is the growing population of overweight, obese, and diabetic patients which is resulting in growth in this category. On an average 5% of Indian population is obese but when seen in urban settings the numbers are incredibly high. Although presently, HIS does not constitute a major share of the market, this is the fastest growing segment due to the rising health concerns among people. Aspartame and sucralose are the most famous sweeteners in the HIS segment. Stevia is also seeing a major demand in the natural sweeteners category.

Major manufacturing centers such as China and India are seeing an increase in production capacity to meet the end-user demands for usage in baked products, confectionaries and frozen desserts. In India, while consumption of artificial sweeteners is only 2% in the middle-income group, it is 70% in the high-income group.

Key Players in the Indian Food Sweetener Market

India is determined to be a huge market as stevia, as a natural herbal extract, fits the cultural bill in the country, which already uses a lot of sugar in the food and beverages sector.

The leading players in this segment are Cargill, Kerry Group, Stevia First Corporation, Hermes Sweeteners Ltd, and Tate and Lyle Plc. Companies are bringing innovations in the stevia-derived products to meet the consumer demand for non-caloric natural sweeteners.
