Global Sugar Market



The increasing global population is driving an increase in the demand for sugar. The household consumption of sugar is contributing to the overall market value, reflecting the growing preference for homemade bakery products. According to the United Nations, the global population is expected to reach 9.8 billion by 2050, which is currently only 8 billion.


Moreover, the expansion of the sugar market is propelled by rising living standards and increased purchasing power in emerging economies. These factors lead to heightened consumption of processed foods, including those with high sugar content such as dairy products and soft drinks. Furthermore, premium packaged beverages and solid processed foods are witnessing an increased penetration of sugar, contributing to the overall expansion of the market.


Asia Pacific and North America are expected to hold a significant share due to the growing population and surge in consumption of processed food in these regions. Additionally, the rising demand for flavoured beverages and carbonated drinks contributes to the sugar demand.
