Key Market Trends

Demand for Clean Label Solutions

Clean label is now regarded as a standard in the food industry. Minimal, transparent, and recognizable ingredient list is highly demanded by consumers around the world, which propels manufactures to highlight the natural origin of the product. Concerns about food handling, excessive usage of food additives, preservatives, sweeteners, and flavorings have led the consumer demand for transparency in the label, and the food supply chain as a whole. Food manufacturers are required to include the contents and place of origin on the label. This has led manufacturers to increase the usage of maple syrup in food applications thereby leading to a rise in production of maple syrup in the country. Amid growing awareness of the ill effects of artificial additives, lack of a clean label is proving to be a major restraint in the market.

High Intensity Sweeteners (HIS) Segment is Growing in United States Market

This growth is due to increased awareness and usage of dietary foods. However, consumption growth for HIS as a class has slowed to near zero in North America. Another major driver is the growing population of overweight, obese, and diabetic patients which is resulting in growth in this category. 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. Most diet soft drink bottlers, certainly those in the United States have now switched from 100% aspartame to blends of aspartame and ace-K for their second-ranking brands, and some top line brands.
