Market Share by Product Category

Compound chocolate accounts for a leading share of the real and compound chocolate market due to its low cost production, resulting in more manufacturers producing this type of chocolate at lower costs. Due to the lower costs, compound chocolate is also preferred by bakers. With additives, the flavours and cooking capabilities can be adjusted, increasing its versatility. 

 

However, compound chocolate can lead to increased cholesterol, due to which health-conscious consumers are opting for real chocolate. Additionally, due to the high content of cocoa butter, real chocolate has an excellent velvety and smooth texture that enhances the nuanced flavour and aroma of the chocolate. Despite higher costs, the demand for real chocolate is expected to rise among consumers interested in premium chocolate, supporting the growth of the market. 

 

Market Share by Type

Milk chocolate is one of the most popular types of chocolate globally, owing to its increasing consumption because of its texture and versatility, accounting for a majority share in the real and compound chocolate market. With a creamy texture, milk chocolate is made with milk and chocolate, and is liked by a vast portion of consumers. It also finds applications in hot chocolate, cake, shakes, and other end products, contributing to the growth of the segment in the market. 

 

Dark chocolate typically has a higher percentage of cocoa solids and tends to have a slightly bitter taste as compared to milk chocolate, based on the cocoa concentration. However, dark chocolate offers numerous health benefits, including improved blood flow, lower blood pressure, and reduced risk of heart disease. It is also a powerful source of antioxidants. Due to its health benefits, the demand for dark chocolate is expected to rise and contribute to the overall market growth for real and compound chocolate. 

 

Competitive Landscape

Puratos NV/SA is an international food company that has its headquarter in Brussels, Belgium. It was founded in 1919 and believes in creating food solutions with innovations for the wellbeing of individuals and to create a healthy world.
