Market Analysis

The North America confectionery market is being driven by the expanding distribution channels. Both online platforms and retail markets like drug and grocery stores, supermarkets, and hypermarkets are expected to grow further. With consumers becoming more health conscious, especially, as a result of the rising number of cases of obesity and diabetes, the manufacturers of confectioneries are increasingly investing in the development of reduced sugar or sugar-free products. The trend towards health and wellness is also boosting the sales of dark chocolate, thus, propelling the overall North America confectionery market forward. Dark chocolates contain numerous minerals and fibre. It also acts as an antioxidant and may contribute to the reduction of heart disease risk.

The growing high-income class along with a solid growth in GDP in the US, will also aid the North America confectionery market. The rise in disposable incomes is leading to an increase in the consumption of premium confectionery products. Also, the trend of gifting premium chocolate products is growing in the country. Thus, premium products are projected to witness a healthy growth in the forecast period and is one of the fastest growing segments in the chocolate market. While fair trade chocolates have a small market share, they are expected to grow in the coming years due to the rising consumer awareness about the sourcing of the products they are consuming. The increasing demand for premium as well as healthy products is leading to the growth of the confectionery products containing organic ingredients.
