Market factors:

Leading producers are investing in new product creation and launching a variety of product variations including fruit, macadamia nuts, creative rice snacks and chocolate truffles. Multinationals have invested in several surveys and case studies to create a unique product line. One of the most popular products in North America and Europe is premium fruit wrapped in chocolate. These fruits include many others, such as pomegranate, blueberry, and cranberry. Many convenience stores and some international supermarkets have easy access to fine chocolates. Another category in high demand by customers who do not like sweets is dark and sugar-free chocolate.

Chocolate manufacturers are driven by growing consumer demand for low fat and healthy food options to add healthy ingredients to their products instead of traditional cocoa as the main component. Since trans fats are associated with cardiovascular problems, food products containing them are losing market share to low-calorie, low-fat alternatives. In light of the evidence, leading chocolate producers are responding to increased consumer interest in health and wellness by improving the nutritional profile of their chocolate assortment. The expansion of the studied industry is accelerated by the premium cocoa market, which offers single-origin and certified sustainable products. Manufacturers are launching their ranges of origin and luxury chocolates to meet growing demand. In addition, they help regional economies.

Market constraints:

Growing consumer concerns about their health and the need for healthy eating have led customers to consume less chocolate, negatively impacting sales in North America. Other health problems linked to chocolate consumption are blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. Dental problems can result from excessive sugar consumption. In America, untreated tooth decay affects approximately 16 million children.

COVID 19 Analysis

Low sales volumes caused by the COVID-19 outbreak and supply issues related to certification and quality affected the chocolate business. In the Dominican Republic, the harsh lockdown has been said to prevent farmers and other farm workers from visiting plantations for several weeks until the government approves exceptions. For example, a disruption in the raw material supply chain followed by a lockdown led to an increase in the number of specialty stores closed for an extended period and a drop in the volume of premium chocolates consumed.

These leading confectionery companies are mainly driving chocolate consumption on the European continent. Another factor driving chocolate sales is the popularity of natural ingredients with consumers. During the forecast period, the growing popularity of specialty chocolate among Europeans is expected to drive the demand in the European market. Additionally, producers operating in the European chocolate market stand to benefit greatly from innovation in new flavors and combinations of various nuts in chocolate.
