A key factor driving the growth of the market is health benefits. Health benefits associated with stevia are diabetic control and weight loss. Stevia is increasingly becoming popular for its ability to regulate blood sugar levels in the body. This is because it contains stevioside (a non-carbohydrate glycoside compound). With rise in the number of diabetic patients, health awareness is increasing by the year. This will lead to an increase in demand for stevia during the forecast period. Furthermore, high obesity rate is a serious concern which often compels consumers to seek artificial sweeteners that will not increase their calorific intake. However, the health hazards associated with artificial sweeteners encourage the demand for natural sweeteners. Stevia is a zero-calorie natural sweetener which facilitates the consumption of foods such as cakes, cookies and candies without significantly increasing the calorific intake. Such benefits are expected to boost the growth of the global stevia market.

Global stevia market: Growing demand for flavored stevia
