Sweetener Market Size Analysis

According to a recent survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, the Global Sweetener Market grew at a CAGR of 3.8% between 2017-2021 and is estimated to be US$ 84,698.3 Mn in 2022.

Due to its low glycaemic index and use as a low-calorie food additive, which makes it ideal for people concerned about their health, the market for sweeteners has grown quickly in recent years.

Additionally, since it does not assess insulin levels after eating, the low rise in diabetic people worldwide has given the sweetener market trends the essential boost. Alternative sweeteners are produced using a range of natural and synthetic materials. They are utilized in various foods, including dairy, bread, and medications, making them a widely accepted market commodity in many nations.

Market Dynamic


Consumers have recently become more conscious of their nutritional needs thanks to new product introductions and greater knowledge of alternatives to traditional preventative healthcare. Therefore, customers become more aware of their health and choose to eat different food and beverage products better. A recent consumer trend is a demand for low-calorie, reduced-sugar, and all-natural & organic ingredient-based products because of their many health benefits and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases due to unhealthy eating practices worldwide.


Overconsumption of natural sweeteners can result in health issues such as tooth decay, weight gain, poor nutrition, and elevated triglycerides. Steviol glycosides are the source of stevia, a non-nutritive or calorie-free sweetener. Currently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States only regards high-purity steviol glycosides as safe for human ingestion.

Companies are not permitted to promote stevia leaves and crude stevia extracts as sweetening products since the FDA has not approved them as food additives. The FDA states that a daily dosage of stevia glycosides of 4 milligrams (mg) per kilogram of body weight is appropriate. According to scientists, highly refined stevia is not thought to have any negative side effects when used as a sweetener or food flavoring.


To address the increased demand from customers for items that promote health, researchers are developing new lines of natural sweetener products. For instance, the leading players in the food and beverage business are introducing monk fruit sweeteners due to their multiple health benefits and greater safety levels.

Under the SweetRight brand, ADM offers three varieties of monk fruit sweeteners. In 2017, ADM introduced these monk fruit sweeteners due to their collaboration with GLG Life Tech Corporation (Canada). Monk fruit is used to make monk fruit sweeteners. The “Buddha fruit,” or Luo Han Guo, is another name for the monk fruit. Monk fruit sweeteners give sweetness to food and beverage goods without adding calories and are 150–200 times sweeter than sugar.

Segment-Wise Analysis

Why are Bakery & Confectionery estimated to account for the largest market share?

The sector with the biggest sales shares in 2021—more than 35.0%—was bakery and confectionery. In bakery and confectionery food products, sweeteners are primarily used as sweetening agents. They are also among the crucial ingredients used in baked culinary products. Sweeteners are employed in significant amounts in yeast-based and chemically leavened baked goods like cakes and cookies. In addition, they are employed as humectants, texturizers, bulking agents, coloring agents, and shelf-life extenders.

Why is solid expected to expand the fastest during the forecast period?

In 2021, the solid form held the highest share—more than 70.0%. As most sweeteners are accessible in solid, crystalline, or powdered forms due to the feasibility and several functional advantages, such as ease of transportation, packaging, stability, and extensive uses afforded by solid sweeteners, the solid form is mostly concentrated on the global market.

Region-Wise Analysis

The regions analyzed for the market include North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.

  • With a market share of more than 47.9%, Asia Pacific dominated. Due to the presence of some of the economies with the fastest development rates, like China and India, the region has significant growth potential for the food and beverage sector. Western diets have a substantial impact on the region’s younger population. It is anticipated that the demand for high-end beverages and confectionary items will increase imports of these sweeteners.
  • The projected CAGR for North America is 2.4%. Because consumers are becoming healthier, some regional players now provide low-calorie food and beverages. Additionally, the market in North America is expanding as people become more knowledgeable about sugar substitutes that have few or no calories. The need for natural sweeteners is anticipated to increase in the region as consumers move toward natural and organic products and consume less packaged and overly processed food.
