The increasing demand for low-calorie food products is one of the major factors responsible for the growth of the sugar substitutes market. Sugar substitutes include artificial and natural sweeteners, which are applicable in different applications to replace sugar. These substitutes are being increasingly preferred by manufacturers producing food & beverage products, functional foods, dietary supplements, pharmaceutical products, pet food, and personal care products. Rising demand for functional food products, growing prevalence of diabetes and obesity, and the surging demand for natural sweeteners are the key factors responsible for the growth of the sugar substitutes market. However, stringent government regulations and adverse health effects associated with sugar substitutes are expected to restrain the growth of this market to some extent in the near future.

The sugar substitutes market is segmented by source (artificial and natural), by type (high-intensity sweeteners, low-intensity sweeteners, and High-fructose corn syrup); product [non-nutritive sweeteners (acesulfame-K, neotame, saccharin, sucralose, stevia, cyclamate, luo han guo, and others) and [nutritive sweeteners (aspartame, polyols, and high fructose corn syrup)]; form (solid and liquid); application (food, beverages, nutritional and health supplements, pharmaceuticals, animal feed, and personal care); and geography. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyzes the market at regional and country levels.

The Impact of COVID-19 on the Sugar Substitutes Market

As a measure to control the spread of COVID-19 and to avoid its associated consequences, governments across the globe have announced partial or complete lockdowns. This has had a significant impact on many industries globally, hitting hard in terms of reduced manufacturing and distributions across the globe.

There is a rapid surge in demand for less sugary and immunity-boosting products, as people are seeking solutions to boost overall health and wellbeing. The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted most health-conscious customers to turn to low-calorie or sugar-free food. Hence, increasing health consciousness and high demand for sugar-reducing solutions among the global population has forced manufacturers and product formulators to opt for sugar substitutes.

However, the pandemic has led to the adoption of some best-practice models for the food industry, as COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of hygienic and nutritious foods comprising reduced sugar, calories, and fats. This industry has faced unprecedented demand from the consumer, particularly for low-calorie food products. For instance, in 2020, in Europe, two-third of people state they are trying to lower their sugar intake. (Source: New Nutrition Business). Therefore, many companies in the food industry have already started changing their strategies by replacing sugar with sugar substitutes.

Further, dietary supplement sales have increased during the pandemic as dietary supplements help enhance the immune system. During the last week of March 2020, the sales growth for overall dietary supplements skyrocketed to more than 35% in the U.S. Also, according to Glanbia Plc., dietary supplements purchase in retail outlets has increased during April 2020. Further, school and office closures have compelled consumers to opt for at-home breakfast, functional foods, coffee, and lunch, which has driven a significant increase in the demand for sugar-free products.

Thus, growing health and wellness concerns, strong demand for dietary supplements, and increasing demand for sugar-free products are expected to propel the growth of the sugar substitutes market.

Based on source, the artificial sweeteners segment commanded the largest revenue of the overall sugar substitutes market in 2020. However, the natural sweeteners segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing consumer awareness regarding consumption of food products with natural ingredients, growing consumer preference for clean label and healthy products, and increasing use of stevia and other natural sugar substitutes by leading food and beverage companies are some of the major drivers for the growth of the natural sweeteners segment.

Based on type, the high-intensity sweeteners segment commanded the largest share of the sugar substitutes market in 2020.

Also, this segment comprises the most commonly used low-calorie artificial sweeteners, which further supports the largest share of this segment.

Based on type, the sucralose segment dominated the overall non-nutritive sugar substitutes market in 2020. Key factors contributing to the dominant position of this segment are the growing applications of sucralose in food and beverages, high shelf-life, and its requirement in low quantity to achieve desired sweet taste due to its high sweetness.
