The Essentials

Sugar and HFS are under siege in many markets, facing concerns over obesity-related health issues, resulting in food taxes and revisions to food guidelines. Does this mean that low calorie sweeteners will be able to capture growth potential from caloric sweeteners after a period of flat demand? However, there are countries seeing a strong rise in per capita consumption of caloric sweeteners. How will all this balance out to 2022?

For each sweetener covered, we forecast where growth will take place and where markets will contract. We provide a database on demand for each of 7 low calorie sweeteners and 3 caloric sweeteners in each of 4 end uses and each of 11 countries, plus regional and global totals. We estimate recent and current demand and forecast to 2022.
