Low Intensity Sweeteners Market Drivers and Restraints

The growing popularity of low-calorie foods to combat obesity, diabetes, and other lifestyle-related diseases is a major factor in the growth of the global low-intensity sweetener market. In addition, the growing preference for sugar substitutes and product development activities for sugar substitutes are factors likely to support the growth of the target market in the near future. Also, the increasing demand for natural sweeteners from the food and beverage industry in developed countries and some developing countries is another important factor that is expected to drive global market growth during the forecast period. In addition, the development of innovative products at a lower price, should generate potential revenue opportunities for players operating in the market. Low-intensity sweeteners are used as sugar substitutes because they provide a sweet taste with reduced calories. Additionally, the drive toward a low-calorie diet to lose weight and to treat associated health problems is a key factor in fueling the demand for low-intensity sweeteners.

However, high manufacturing cost is a major factor that can hamper the growth of the target market. Also, strict regulations for some ingredients used in the manufacture of low-intensity sweeteners along with approval times are factors that can hamper the global market growth to some extent. On the other hand, the strict regulations for the inclusion of ingredients used in the manufacture of low-intensity sweeteners and the delay in approval are key factors that somewhat hinder the growth of this market. The increasing cost of introducing new products and consumer resistance to these products are negatively impacting the growth of this market. However, the growing demand for products of natural origin like stevia has opened up new growth opportunities.
