Global Confectionery Market to Witness Growth at a CAGR of 4% During 2021-2026, Aided by Greater Product Choice

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Confectionery Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the market attained a value of around USD 204 billion in 2020. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 4% in the forecast period of 2021-2026 to reach a value of around USD 255 billion by 2026.

Confectioneries have been a popular commodity across the world. There has been a rise in the demand for confectioneries, especially one with low calorie ingredients due to increasing health consciousness. The rise in demand can also be due to the fact that sweets are increasingly being seen as affordable, due to rising incomes across different countries. Over the historical period, confectionery companies have also released newer brands and chocolates in order to cater to different tastes as well as to suit different diets, which is expected to be continued in the forecast period 2021-2026, with positive results for the sales. The raw materials required to make confectioneries are usually sugar and cocoa, whose changing prices can negatively impact the profitability of confectioneries. During the COVID-19 pandemic, sales of confectioneries were severely hit due to disrupted supply chains and low shop clearance rates. This is expected to abate in the coming year because of alternatives like e-commerce and falling rates of COVID-19 due to vaccination or immunity.

The Hershey Company (NYSE: HSY) is an American multinational company, which is one of the largest manufacturers of chocolate-based confectioneries. It has other non-chocolate products like biscuits, cakes, drinks and milkshakes. With resurging sales in 2021, the company, like other confectionery companies, is expected to be a lucrative option for investment.
