Sugar-free beverages

The sugar-free beverages segment of the sugar-free food and beverages market is projected to be worth USD 25.5 billion by 2021. The growth in this segment is driven by the rising demand for low-calorie beverages, and beverages with new flavors,” says Poonam Saini, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for food research.

Globally, there is an increase in demand for low-calorie and sugar-free beverages, such as juices, flavored water, sports drinks, energy drinks, and soft drinks, owing to the rising health consciousness among consumers. Stevia is currently the most preferred sugar-substitute in the market, and its use in low-calorie beverages will propel the growth of the market segment.

Sugar-free dairy products

The demand for sugar-free dairy products is driven by the consumer base with lactose intolerance and diabetes. Such consumers keep a strict count of the number of calories consumed in a day and maintain a low cholesterol diet with many nutritionally valuable ingredients. The popular products available in the segment includes sugar-free yogurts by Yeo Valley, sugar-free coconut milk from Delicious Dairy Free, for consumers who have lactose intolerance. Such innovative product offerings will add revenue to the market segment.

Sugar-free confectionery

The increasing health and wellness trend is impacting the confectionery market and resulting in changes in consumption pattern among consumers. The segment is set to showcase one of the fastest growth rates, especially from developing markets such as China,” says Poonam.

Vendors in the market are responding to the high demand by expanding their portfolio of sugar-free chocolates and non-chocolates. For instance, Hershey, a leading manufacturer in this market, replaced sugar in its products with maltitol and polyglycitol. Most of the growth in the market segment stems from developing countries such as China, Russia, and Mexico.
