Market Overview:

The cocoa and chocolate market has been growing at a slow but steady pace. Cocoa provides flavour, texture and colour to products. Also, it has anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant and anti-oxidative properties. The market for these ingredients is increasing in developing economies such as India and China. In specific, dark chocolate contains high amounts of antioxidants, which are believed to prevent certain types of diseases like Cardiac arrest. Health benefits, perceived by people and doctors, have been the main reason behind steady growth for products with high quantities of cocoa.

Powerful growth in demand is unevenly matched against an unstable and unpredictable supply. But chocolate consumers are quite price insensitive. Except in some rare circumstances consumers are ready to purchase cocoa product at any price. The huge demand for chocolate and cocoa in confectionery and food and beverage industries majorly drives the market. The health benefits of cocoa and chocolate in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics has enough evidence to back manufacturers to consider using such ingredients.
