Regardless Of Numerous Substitutes, Global Sugar Market Expected To Grow At A Balanced Pace

A number of functional properties of sugar along with its wide applications in the food and beverage industry are currently stimulating the growth of the global sugar market.

A new report released by IMARC Group titled “Sugar Market – Industry Trends, Manufacturing Process, Plant Setup, Machinery, Raw Materials, Cost and Revenue” finds that the global sugar market reached a volume of 176 Million Tons in 2015, growing at a CAGR of around 1% during 2008-2015. With its properties of providing a smooth texture to various food items, adding warm colour to bakery products and enhancing aromas, sugar has long been viewed as an important source of food energy. Although sugar faces competition due to the presence of many substitutes, it continues to represent a dominant portion of the everyday diet for the majority of the global population. Apart from being a sweetener, sugar’s efficacy in lowering freezing points and preserving many food products make it an integral part of the food and beverage industry. Furthermore, sugar also finds its applications in the pharmaceutical industry as it is used in cough syrups for its solubility effects and serves as an active ingredient in tablets. Several factors such as increasing population, rising disposable incomes and thriving food and beverage industry continue to thrust forward the growth of the global sugar market.
