The confectionery market in Europe has the highest percentage of chocolate lovers, and Switzerland is the highest in terms of per capita consumption of chocolate. Because of the increasing number of health-conscious customers, there has been a rising demand for dark chocolate across the confectionery market in Europe. The rise in child obesity in major European countries like the UK has led to a shift in demand for dark chocolate in the youth segment.
According to the report, the continuous challenges and competition faced by the manufacturers have led them to innovate products to sustain the growth of the industry. Innovation in terms of flavors, varieties, texture, and color have drawn customers toward the products. In terms of innovation, Europe leads the way in the global market with over 50% of the new product launches. In the gum segment, gourmet-flavor sugar-free gums have been a huge success.
Further, the report states that the contribution from the sugar confectionery and gum segments to the confectionery market in Europe is much lower than that from the chocolate segment. The health and wellness trend among consumers is a major reason for the declining consumption.
