Market Dynamics

Caramel is one of the most popular flavors in North America. Approximately, over 31,000 new food and beverage products are being launched in North America, every year. Of these, more than 1,045 (around 3.3%) are flavored with caramel. A vast majority of these are confectionery, such as hot drinks, bakery and cereals, ice cream and savory snacks.

Caramel is increasingly found across sweet treat categories; ice cream and chocolate are the key areas for caramel application. One in two of all desserts with caramel is ice cream, while one in five of all the confectionery products featuring caramel is chocolate.

Caramel colors are often utilized in beer production to generate cost savings, as less expensive malted barley can be used. This color can be added either at the process stage or at the finished stage, to increase/darken the overall color of the final product. Caramel is the most widely used colorant in the soft drink industry.

Consumer awareness about the health issues related to caramel is restricting the growth of caramel market; certain ingredients used in making caramel color can cause temporary or permanent health issues.

Among the application segment of the caramel ingredients, ice creams & desserts segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period. In the recent past, confectionery application accounted for the largest market share.
