The shift in consumer preference for foods and beverages containing natural ingredients is increasing at a faster stage. Additionally, soft drink producers are witnessing the increasing demand for low sugar soft drinks. Therefore, to meet consumer demand, producers are replacing conventional sugar with natural and artificial sweeteners. Many research activities are also underway to produce new natural sweeteners.

In addition to providing stability, natural sweeteners have functional properties that improve the quality and taste of various foods and beverages, which are also expected to drive growth in the natural sweetener market for an estimated period. In addition, new products are being developed due to technological advances. Growing preferences for alternatives such as high-concentration sweeteners, low-concentration sweeteners, and fructose syrup in foods and beverages are key drivers of growth in the target market. Also, the increasing demand in the medical industry due to the increase in health problems such as obesity and diabetes is another factor that supports the growth of this market. Also, the surge in demand for natural sweeteners in various personal and healthcare products is another factor anticipated to fuel expansion in this market.

Natural Sweeteners Market Analysis By Region

Regional segmentation of the global market into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East, and Africa. North America occupied a significant share of the global natural sweetener market in 2018. With the increasing adoption of natural sweeteners by various US food and beverage manufacturers, North America is the largest stevia consuming region, supporting the development of the natural sweeteners industry around the world. The Asia-Pacific natural sweetener market dominated the global market because of their increasing adoption in foods like pickles and flavored sauces and others. The Asia-Pacific natural sweetener market is expected to record the highest annual growth rate over the forecast period as concerns about a higher incidence of health problems such as diabetes and obesity mount. In addition, sugar counts in several countries are supposed to pay attention to the acceptance of non-caloric products based on natural sweeteners. As customers in the USA and as Europe increases its investment in innovative product and technology development to offer high-quality, cost-effective natural sweeteners, target markets are foreseen to grow in the countries of these regions.

The high growth rate of GDP, together with the increase in people's disposable income, is an important driver of market growth in the area. Stevia is a low-calorie natural sweetener extracted from the Stevia rebaudiana plant, which is effective in reducing hypertension and blood sugar in diabetics. This is mainly due to the large number of natural sweeteners used in various Asian foods, such as pasta, sauces, and pickles. Also, the use of stevia is increasing as local lifestyle patterns change. Furthermore, as the number of diabetics increases, especially in India and China, the demand for sugar substitutes has increased, leading to further market growth.
