Global Cocoa And Chocolate Market Insights

Cocoa And Chocolate Market size was valued at USD 46.61 billion in 2021 and is poised to grow from USD 48.29 billion in 2022 to USD 67.88 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.98% in the forecast period (2023-2030).

Cocoa is a dark brown powder made from the crushed beans of a tree, used to prepare chocolate and give the taste of chocolate to food and drink. Cocoa is mostly produced by hand and minimally requires mechanized processes. Despite this constraint, roughly 4 million tonnes of cocoa beans have been produced globally each year since a decade. The beans are first converted into cocoa liquor, then into cocoa butter or cocoa powder, which is then used to make chocolate, cosmetics, and a range of dishes.

The cocoa industry is projected to expand, owing to its widespread appeal, popularity, and application in the food and beverage industries. This includes chocolate prepared with single-origin cocoa, low-sugar products, premium and dark chocolate, and innovative flavours. Emerging economies are also seeing an increase in demand for cocoa goods. Chocolate sales are expected to expand in countries with rising GDP per capita, such as China, Mexico, Indonesia, Turkey, and India, as end customers in these countries have more discretionary cash to spend on such items.

US Cocoa And Chocolate Market is poised to grow at a sustainable CAGR for the next forecast year.

Cocoa And Chocolate Market Analysis by Nature

In 2021, the traditional sector represented the majority of the market. Because of its many benefits, conventional farming is most common in the globe. Because traditional farming requires less labour and produces in huge quantities on a less amount of land, it always remains the top option for farmers who want to minimise costs and maximise income. Furthermore, unlike organic items, traditional products are widely accessible everywhere, regardless of location. Consequently, there is always a demand for them. With a CAGR of more than 5.1 % over the projected period of 2022–2028, the organic segment is anticipated to develop the fastest. The main cause of this is traditional farming's drawbacks, which include negative environmental effects, health issues, a high risk of plant diseases, and numerous other issues. As a result, the overall demand for organic products is increasing dramatically due to customers' rising attention to their health and the environment.

Cocoa And Chocolate Market Analysis by Distribution Channel

The cocoa and chocolate market can be further divided into offline and online retail based on the distribution channels used. In 2021, the offline market had the highest share. The rise is attributable to round-the-corner presence, simple returns, bulk purchasing, haggling, examining products for quality before making a decision, quick purchases, and, last but not least, a reason to go outside that can lift one's spirits. Additionally, the expansion of contemporary stores like supermarkets, which provide the convenience of shopping for everything in one location and attractive discount offers, draws people in. However, the fastest growth is projected for online retail, with a CAGR of more than 5.4 % from 2022 to 2028. The popularity of working from home, cutting-edge technological advancements like e-banking and Google maps, greater smartphone use, internet penetration, people's busy lifestyles, and a tech-friendly population are all contributors in the growth.

Global Cocoa And Chocolate Market Dynamics

Cocoa And Chocolate Market Driver

Increase in health benefits to add more to market expansion

  • The market for cocoa and chocolate is expanding as consumers become more aware of the health benefits of consuming foods that have a high cocoa content. In addition to providing the human body with various health advantages, cocoa helps to lower blood pressure and treat chronic fatigue syndrome. Additionally, cocoa includes polyphenols, which shields the body's tissues against oxidative stress and its associated conditions including cancer and inflammation.
  • In developing countries, the middle-income groups are expanding quickly. These people have a greater purchasing power and larger disposable incomes. Additionally, they are willing to spend more on foreign items  imported chocolate from the West. Middle-income population in developing countries like China and India are also becoming more health-conscious.

Cocoa And Chocolate Market Restraint

Price fluctuation and geographical conditions to impede the market growth

  • Volatile cocoa prices and constrained cocoa production hinder the market's expansion. Mineral content is high in cacao products including dark chocolate, nibs, and unsweetened cocoa powder. Raw cacao products with minimum processing have more antioxidants and less added sugar than those with heavy processing, which inhibits market expansion.
  • Ageing plantations, subpar farm management, degraded soil, and rising insect and disease pressure are all threats to the production of cocoa in many nations. Producers of cocoa frequently depend on the removal of more forest land to expand production and meet demand.
  • Deforestation results in loss of biodiversity and accelerates the climate change. Additionally, the improper or excessive use of pesticides and chemical fertilisers has a severe impact on the quality of nearby water supplies, contaminates soils, and further diminishes biodiversity in many cocoa fields.
