Availability of a diverse range of products in new flavors
Consumers' preference for packaged food items, such as confectionery products, depends on the availability of the products in the market. When the number of products available is large, the better will be the chance of consumers opting for these multivariate products. A wide assortment of sugar confectionery products also drives the growth of the market.
A wide range of products allows consumers to change their preferences and their usual choice of food. Children are attracted to various shapes, flavors, and packaging used in the confectionery industry. Players in the market need to spend intensively on their research and development (R&D) and come up with product innovations in terms of shapes, flavors, and packaging.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for food, “The rising importance given by consumers to the cocoa content in chocolates is another factor that plays an important role in driving the growth of the global confectionery market. Lately, consumers are getting more aware of the fact that high-quality cocoa plays an important role in determining the taste of chocolates. Consumers are also attracted towards chocolates that contain ingredients like caramel, fruits, and nuts as they enhance the taste of chocolate. In the case of gum and sugar confectionery items, the demand for various flavors drives market growth.”
