North America Natural Sweeteners Market Key Insights:
The North America natural sweeteners market is being aided by the rising demand for stevia. The global stevia industry grew at a CAGR of 8.5% between 2014-2018 and is expected to reach a production value of USD 785 million by 2024. In the US, stevia witnessed a robust 12% growth in 2018, as compared to 2017, attaining a value of USD 250 million.
In North America and LATAM, soft drinks is the leading application sector for stevia with an over 30% market share, followed by the sports nutrition and dairy sectors. Steviol glycosides, derived from the stevia plant, are the leading drivers of high-intensity sweeteners globally followed by monk fruit extracts.
While natural sweeteners are predominantly used in food and beverages sector, they are also finding increasing use in the pharmaceutical industry. Toothpaste and supplements are significant emerging application segments for natural sweeteners, which are expected to see further growth in the coming five years.
Properties and Applications
Sweeteners are used as additives in food with little to no sugar content to sweeten and enhance their flavour. They can be either nutritive or non-nutritive, natural or synthetic. Sweeteners differ in their sweetness and are categorised as low and high-intensity sweeteners on the basis of their relative sweetness to sugar/ sucrose. The leading natural sweeteners types are stevia, maple syrup, raw honey, molasses, and coconut sugar, among others.
While natural sweeteners find the majority of their application in the food and beverage sector, usually in foods and drinks marketed as ‘diet’ or ‘sugar-free’, they also find their use in sectors like pharmaceuticals and personal care, among others. Their major distribution channels are:
The report also looks in-depth into the major regional markets in North America like the United States and Canada.
North America is a leading natural sweeteners market. It is being driven by the rising consumer awareness about the adverse health impact of sugar with the increasing prevalence of obesity, high blood sugar and type-2-diabetes in the region. The growing demand for low-calorie food containing less or no sugar combined with a consumer apprehension towards artificial sweeteners is aiding the natural sweeteners industry growth in the region.
Stevia, derived from the leaves of a South American plant, is a popular natural sweetener in the region. While whole-leaf stevia and crude extracts of stevia are not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, refined stevia preparations like Reb A are generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA. Stevia is widely used in baking as a sugar-replacement. However, a bulking agent like yoghurt, applesauce, or egg whites is added to stevia to match the bulk of sugar.
The rising trends towards various diets like low sugar or lifestyle diets like paleo or keto diets is further pushing the industry growth for natural sweeteners. With the growing preference of consumers with busier lifestyles for ready to drink (RTD) beverages in the US and Canada, the natural sweeteners industry is finding a greater impetus for further development in the region. They are also being increasingly preferred by consumers and manufacturers, both, due to the imposition of the sugary beverage tax, commonly referred to as soda tax, in multiple states in the US. The alternative sweeteners industry in the US is thriving due to the high production of non-alcoholic beverages, which are also exported outside the country. The industry is also being boosted by the innovations being undertaken in the energy and sports drink sector where natural sweeteners find extensive applications.
