Regional Insight

North America is all set to procure the leading position in the coming years, given the significant awareness level among consumers about different food products in line with growing focus on health. Prevalence of healthy diets and the high purchasing capacity of the consumers in the region also add to the market’s strength. Companies in the region are mostly focused on developing beverages and foods that cater to the customers’ dietary and weight loss goals, which helps bolster the sales.

Asia Pacific has been witnessing dramatic changes in terms of diet diversification, relaxation of trade policies within the food industry and rapid urbanization. Consumer’ rising interest in health maintenance and the subsequent shift towards food items with health benefits should present major opportunities to the top sugar alternative manufacturers in the region. The disconcerting surge in cases of obesity and diabetes, especially in India, will foster the adoption of sugar alternatives in the following years.
