The global stevia industry is projected to attain USD 787 million in 2026, growing at a CAGR of 8.6% in the forecast period of 2021-2026.

In Latin America, stevia finds the majority of its application in the soft drinks segment followed by the sports nutrition segment.

Dairy is also emerging as a major application segment for the natural sweetener in the regions, accounting for over 12% of the stevia application. The Latin America stevia market is being aided by the abundance of raw material easily available for processing. The stevia plant is native to Brazil and Paraguay. Paraguay is the region’s largest producer of the natural sweetener. It accounts for over three-fourths of the total stevia production in Latin America. Paraguay is followed by Argentina and Brazil as the leading producers in the region.

The Latin America stevia market is being driven by the growing trend towards sugar reduction in foods and beverages due to increasing rates of type-2 diabetes and obesity occurrence. The growing consumer preference towards healthier food and beverages containing low or no sugar is aiding the industry for sugar-substitutes like stevia. The industry is gaining further impetus from the rising number of government regulations attempting to restrict the intake of sugar. These measures include a front-of-pack warning about high sugar, salt, and fat content on products in Latin America countries like Chile, Peru, and Uruguay. Other countries in the region are also expected to implement similar strategies to combat the growing number of sugar consumption-related diseases.
