Cocoa beans are available in different varieties in the market, including Criollo cocoa beans, Forastero cocoa beans, and Trinitario cocoa beans. Among these, Criollo cocoa beans experience high demand in the global market due to their high quality. In addition, Criollo cocoa beans are more expensive than the other two varieties of cocoa beans. Furthermore, many other cocoa products can be extracted from cocoa beans, including cocoa butter, cocoa liquor, and cocoa powder. The major consumer of cocoa beans is the ever-growing chocolate industry. Thus, expansion of the chocolate industry is anticipated to propel the growth of the global cocoa beans market at a rapid pace during the forecast period.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis

High demand for cocoa beans from the chocolate industry booststhe market for cocoa beans, globally. Along with this, surge in demand for chocolate-based products is driving the growth of the global cocoa beans market. Presently, consumers have become more health-conscious and are inclining towardproducts providing health benefits, which, in turn,augments the sale of the cocoa beans. This is attributed to the fact that cocoa beans help in improving blood flow, lowering blood pressure, and reducing risks of cardiac attack. In addition, the presence of minerals, vitamins, potassium, iron, and copper helps in supporting cardiovascular health and transporting oxygen throughout the body. Thus, all these factors significantly contribute toward the growth of the global cocoa beans market.

However, weakening proper supply network and the fluctuating prices of the cocoa beans hamperthe market growth. Along with this, lack of farm management skills and less penetration of modern farming techniques in a few regions restrictthe market growth for cocoa beans. Moreover, various pests and crop diseases massively affect the production of cocoa beans, which declinesthe production of cocoa beans, thus acting as a major challenge for the growth of the overall market.

Use of cocoa beans in cosmetic industry

The chocolate industry is witnessing a new trend in skin therapy. Medical professionals and experts duly recommend the benefits of the chocolate-based treatment on the skin. This trend garnered high revenue from the cocoa beans market.
