  • Cyclamate
  • Stevia
  • Ace-K
  • Neotame

The top three revenue-generating product segments in the global zero-calorie sweetener market are discussed below:


Sucralose is the most popular product offering in the global zero-calorie sweetener market, generating over 30% of the total revenue. The expiry of the sucralose manufacturing patent is creating opportunities for new market players,” says Manjunath Reddy, a lead analyst at Technavio for food research.

Sucralose is the most preferred sweetener among consumers since it tastes like sugar and is perceived positively. Thus, the reduction in sucralose cost coupled with the aggressive pricing strategies employed by vendors is creating new growth for the market segment.


Aspartame is one of the most commonly used artificial sweeteners in the food and beverage industry. The product is around 200 times sweeter than sugar and is commonly used in diet soft drinks, breakfast cereals, desserts, and chewing gum. It also finds applications as a tabletop sweetener. This sweetener tastes like sugar with no bitter aftertaste and is relatively more affordable in comparison to other sweeteners. The market segment will continue to grow slowly over the forecast period, but its market share is likely to show a slight decline owing to the rising popularity of sucralose.


Saccharin is about 300 times sweeter than sugar, is heat stable, has a long shelf life, and is relatively cheap to produce. It is mainly used in candies, cookies, medicines, and toothpaste, often in combination with other sweeteners,” says Manjunath.

Saccharine has a metallic aftertaste which is generally not liked by the consumers, pushing manufacturers to use it in blends, particularly with cyclamate, to mask its undesirable aftertaste. Saccharine has a large potential for growth in emerging market where the other popular sweeteners have not been completely accepted.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Cargill
  • Cumberland Packing
  • Merisant
  • Tate & Lyle
