DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Syrups Market - Segmented by Application and Geography - Trends, Growth and Forecasts (2016 - 2021)" report to their offering.
There is growing demand for syrups as a sweetening agent in the food and beverage industry, due to high consumption of processed food and abundant craving for items that are high in sugar content. Moreover, with growing number of women in the workplace and busy lifestyles, there is little time for preparing complex meals for breakfast. For this reason, consumers opt for syrups to add flavor to bland easy-to-make or ready to eat breakfast items. The increasing consumer demand for syrups as topping in breakfast foods, is another important factor that drives the syrup market.
The diabetic epidemic is a major heath concern throughout the world and number of people with diabetes has risen from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014, rising from 4.7% in 1980 to 8.5% in 2014. This condition has been on the rise in middle income households, who are the major consumers of syrups. Moreover, excess sugar consumption is related to metabolic dysfunction, liver damage, and obesity, which are driving the health conscious consumers away from sugary syrups.
Another restraining factor is the competition from sweet spreads and non-traditional sweet toppings, such as jams, preserves and chocolate spreads, which are taking up a major share of the breakfast spread market and offering stiff competition to the syrups.
Key players in the market include;
- Aunt Jemima
- ConAgra Foods Inc.
- Cedarvale Maple Syrup
