Key Findings of the study:

  • Global Cocoa and Chocolate Market will reach USD 138.03 billion by 2021
  • Powerful local and global growth in demand is unevenly matched against an unpredictable and unstable supply. But chocolate consumers happen to be quite price insensitive. Except in very rare circumstances consumers are willing to purchase cocoa product at any given prices. 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.
  • Europe is the leading consumer of cocoa, followed by North America. Also, Europe is a major processor of cocoa in the global market and is forecasted to grow at the highest rate. However, the overall cocoa and chocolate industry in the European region has become stagnant and saturated over the last few years. Consumer awareness pertaining to health benefits of cocoa has led to some of the important innovations in the North American cocoa and chocolate industry.
  • Some of the major companies dominating the market, by their products and services include ADM, Cargill, Bunge, Barry Callebaut, Indcresa, Blommer and JB Foods Limited, Plot Ghana, Dutch Cocoa and Cocoa Processing Company Limited.
