The industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.6%, globally, in the forecast period of 2021-2026. The global market is expected to attain a value of USD 787 million in 2026.

While the market penetration of stevia in the Middle East and Africa is still low, the industry is expected to witness a healthy growth. Major players in the industry are seeking to invest and diversify their product portfolio in the region to incorporate stevia into traditionally consumed products. Companies are also investing in the leaf supply diversification in the region, particularly in Africa. With governments in the area working to reduce the consumption of sugar due to the rising cases of obesity and diabetes, the stevia industry is being further propelled forward. The proposed sugary beverage tax in countries like Saudi Arabia and UAE might also propel the industry forward. Currently, South Africa is a significant producer of stevia in the region.

Globally, the Asia Pacific is the largest stevia market, with China being its leading producer. Japan is emerging as a significant consumer of stevia in the region with the natural sweetener accounting for almost 40% of the country’s current sweetener industry. The Asia Pacific is followed by Europe as a leading stevia market. The sweetener is processed on the continent from imported stevia leaves. Major food and beverage manufacturers, globally, are investing more in developing products containing the natural sweetener. The Asia Pacific and Europe lead in the launches of products containing stevia. Latin America and North America are the other major markets. Paraguay and Brazil are the major producers in the Latin America region with the stevia plant being native to the countries. The industry for the natural sweetener in the Americas is being driven by the easy availability of the raw materials and their thriving food and beverage industry. The industry in the region is also finding impetus in the growing health consciousness among the consumers, and growing aversion to artificial sweeteners.

Market Analysis

The Middle East and Africa stevia market is being driven by the rising cases of obesity and diabetes, leading to a greater demand for low-calorie sweeteners. Currently, over a quarter of the population in countries like the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, and Bahrain are afflicted with obesity. With consumers moving away from artificial sweeteners towards more natural products, the stevia industry in the region is being propelled forward. The rise in population, along with an increase in the disposable incomes, is further driving the industry growth. The industry in the region is also being aided by the more health conscious younger consumers.

The stevia industry in the Middle East and Africa is also being driven by the growing acceptance of the ingredient, both by the consumers and the governments. The natural sweetener passed regulatory clearance for its application in the food and beverage sector in major markets like South Africa and Egypt in 2013 and 2014, respectively. The Gulf Cooperation Council’s (GCC) Standardisation Organisation (GSO) put out its final regulation regarding the application of steviol glycosides in foods and beverages in 2016. The regulations dictate the substance’s application in products like non-alcoholic drinks, nectars, breakfast cereals, confectionery, canned and bottled fruits, bakery products, and marmalades, among others. The rising innovations taking place in the industry in the region will further drive the industry growth.
