The global white chocolate market attained a value of USD 18 billion in 2019. The market is further anticipated to reach USD 19.7 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 1.5% over the forecast period of 2020-2025.

With distinctive taste and properties, the product is used in various products such as beverages- coffee, milkshakes, and smoothies; snack-foods- chips, popcorns, cookies, and cupcakes; and cosmetics –nail enamel, wax, and oil. In addition, it is being increasingly adopted for skincare, including skin regeneration and hydration. Owing to the expanding application of white chocolate, the market is expected to exhibit significant growth during the forecast period.

Based on the distribution channel, the supermarkets/hypermarkets accounted for the majority of the market share, as they offer discounted deals on an everyday basis to buyers and cater to the one-stop-shop experience. Regionally, Western Europe dominated the global white chocolate market in 2019 across the globe due to the presence of leading chocolate producers in the region.

 

Properties and Applications

White chocolate is a confectionery product, which is produced from sugar, cocoa butter, and milk products, and a fatty emulsifier called lecithin that aids in keeping all the ingredients together. Among these, cocoa butter is the key ingredient used, which provides a subtle flavour in white chocolate. Sometimes, vanilla is also used to enhance the flavour of chocolate. It is available in white, ivory, or pale-yellow colours, and tastes completely different from dark chocolate. In addition, the melting point of white chocolate is relatively higher than other chocolates, which aids in keeping it in solid form at room temperature. 

The white chocolate market can be broadly segmented on the basis of its distribution channel into:

  • Supermarkets/Hypermarkets
  • Convenience Stores
  • Non-Grocery Stores
  • Online/E-Retailing
  • Others

The EMR report looks into the regional white chocolate markets like North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

 

Market Analysis

White chocolate is available in various shades of white colour such as pale yellow, ivory, and pure white. It is widely used in the preparation of various food products as well as beverages such as cakes, tarts, cookies, cupcakes, popcorns, cold coffee, milkshakes, and smoothies. Additionally, sometimes special oil-based colour is also fused to the white chocolate for making different confectionary products, such as frosting, icing, fondant, and modelling paste. Also, it is rich in fat content and has a complex taste. Many contemporary restaurant chefs are using white chocolate with savoury ingredients to enhance the flavour of the dishes. Besides this, white chocolate also finds numerous applications in the cosmetics industry, wherein it acts as a vital ingredient in the manufacturing of wax, nail enamel, and oil. Furthermore, manufacturers are focusing on developing cost-effective new production techniques, coupled with investing in research and development activities to broaden their product portfolio. These factors are expected to drive the growth of the white chocolate market in the coming years. Besides, the rising number of health-conscious consumers is further expected to increase the demand for white chocolate over the forecast period of 2020-2025.
