Impact of COVID-19 on the Blackstrap Molasses Market:

The outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic had a negative impact on the market for Blackstrap molasses. Lack of manpower, global migration and the closure of sugarcane plants have led to a significant decline in production. As the factory was closed, demand in the food and beverage industry decreased. During the post-closure period, demand will increase as the plant begins to operate at optimal operator capabilities. However, as it takes time to return to the factory from home, there will be a shortage of workers at first. In addition, the lack of government support from major sugarcane producers such as India and Brazil, adverse conditions and the emergence of the epidemic curfew are having a significant impact on the availability of labor in the sugar cane factories, which will hamper the growth of the market.

Geographical Segmentation Analysis:

  • North America - the United States and Canada
  • Europe - United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, Italy, and France
  • The Asia Pacific - India, Japan, China, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia
  • Latin America  - Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and Rest of LATAM
  • The Middle East and Africa - Africa and Middle East (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Lebanon, Jordan, Cyprus)

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global Blackstrap molasses market demand in 2019, the main factor driving the growth of the market in this region is the mass production of sugar from sugar cane. This is mainly due to favorable environmental conditions, large agricultural areas, and government support for cane sugar production. The impact of changes in lifestyle, Western culture, and increased disposable income are some of the reasons for the growing demand for bakery products in the Asia Pacific region. Therefore, increased consumption of bakery products is expected to increase demand for Blackstrap molasses as it is used in the manufacture of a variety of bakery products while providing a variety of health benefits. Therefore, the black molasses business is expected to grow at a high rate in Asia Pacific.

North America is supposed to have the highest CAGR of 8.6% during the foreseen period. This is legitimate for the bakery and confectionery sector in the US region, and the adoption of plant-based ingredients in food and beverages is increasing rapidly. This is due to increased purchasing power, changes in people's lifestyle and eating habits, high demand in the bakery sector, and the rise of fast-food chains. Brazil is the largest sugar cane producer in South America. Because black belt is a by-product of sugar production, Brazil produces a large quantity of Blackstrap molasses and accounts for 30% of the worldwide market. Brazil has played a pioneering role in the implementation of a competitive bioethanol industry. Increased sugar production in Brazil is estimated to drive growth in the worldwide Blackstrap molasses market during the envisioned period.
