Market Outlook

Cocoa butter alternatives are gaining traction globally due to unavailability of the cocoa crop. Cocoa is the prime ingredient for chocolates, foods, beverages, and personal care products. But unpredictable weather conditions and lack of funds for farmers have led to manufacturers looking for alternatives. The global cocoa butter alternatives market report by Market Research Future (MRFR) states drivers, opportunities, threats, and weakness in the market in a step-by-step manner.

The global cocoa butter alternatives market is expected to flourish due to rising costs of cocoa butter and inclination towards healthy foods. Its size can touch USD 1,255 million by 2023 at a CAGR of 9.07% from 2018 to 2023 (forecast period). The global consumption of chocolate is expected to spur the market demand in order to keep up with the demand for these sweet foods.

Rise in disposable income levels of consumers in India, China, and Brazil is predicted to drive market demand exponentially thanks to a huge hankering for chocolate. Low availability of cocoa and rise in confectionery and bakery applications can present new growth opportunities for the market in the coming years.
