Coconut Sugar Market Research, 2031

The global Coconut Sugar Market Size was valued at $243.4 million in 2021 and is projected to reach $408.7 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2022 to 2031. Coconut sugar is made from the coconut palm's flower bud stem sap. Major producers, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Thailand have contributed about 80% of the world's production during the past few decades. This is because their cultivation circumstances are favorable.Coconut Sugar Market

Farmers "tap" the coconut tree's flower bud stem by making a cut on its spadix to start the process of creating coconut sugar. The sap inside then flows into below-ground containers where it is collected. The gathered sap is then put into big woks and heated to a moderate temperature to evaporate any extra water, thickening it into a syrup.

75g of the 100g of carbohydrates in 100g of coconut sugar are sugars. 100g has 125  mg of sodium and 625 mg of potassium in terms of trace elements. Coconut sugar contains more iron, zinc, and calcium than granulated sugar and high-fructose corn syrup, according to research from the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Philippine government.

In the food business, coconut sugar is frequently used as a sweetener. Most of its applications are in beverages, confectionery, and pastry goods. In contrast to other sweeteners, coconut sugar contains calories. However, coconut sugar has many uses in the food business because it has fewer calories than regular sugar. In addition, coconut sugar is utilized in the cosmetics sector, typically in skin.

The market for food is seeing an increase in demand for coconut sugar. The demand for natural and high-quality food products is rising all around the globe, which presents a chance for producers of coconut sugar in developing nations. Coconut sugar is a good option for food manufacturers because of its distinctive qualities and growing availability.

The official World Health Organization recommendation for sugar consumption is no more than 10% of total calories. Only roughly 23 nations achieve this suggested level. The European soft drink industry declared a commitment to further cut added sugars in soft drinks by 10% from 2019 to 25 across the EU-27 and the UK in June 2021. This promise excludes coconut sugar. However, it does demonstrate the trend in Europe toward reducing sugar consumption as consumer knowledge rises. Coconut sugar has a lower glycemic index than regular sugar, making it healthier (GI). Coconut sugar consumption lowers the risk of diabetes and other sugar-related illnesses. In addition, according to International Diabetes Federation, diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas is no longer able to make insulin, or when the body cannot make good use of the insulin it produces. Moreover, the growth in the number of diabetes patients globally is one of the major concerns and in 2020 there were approximately 463 million adults which is every 1 in 11 adults (20-79 years) who are suffering from diabetes and the number of patients is expected to increase to 700 million till 2045. Moreover, more than half of the adults diagnosed with diabetes are from countries with low and middle income, and every 1 in 5 people who is in or above the age of 65 years old is suffering from diabetes. Therefore, owing to the rise in the number of patients with diabetes, the demand for sugar alternatives is rising in the market.

In addition, another factor fueling the demand for coconut sugar is the growing trend toward veganism. Another vegan substitute for cane sugar is coconut sugar. The white hue of regular sugar is occasionally achieved through the processing of animal bone char. Coconut sugar is a raw, vegan substitute for normal sugar. The animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) recommends coconut sugar as a vegan substitute for conventional sugar on its website.

The demand for coconut sugar is anticipated to increase further as the vegan population grows. Since bone char is used in the production of conventional sugar, it is not thought to be suitable for vegans. Coconut sugar is regarded as a vegan substitute. In Europe, there are thought to be 75 million vegans and vegetarians.

However, the market faces stiff challenges from the availability of alternative products including but not limited to maple syrup, corn syrup, chocolate syrup, honey, molasses, agave nectar, date syrup to name a few, which are highly popular among consumers. Maple syrup is one of the most common and popular syrups or natural sugar substitutes preferred by the consumers owing to its natural sweetness obtained from the maple tree. In addition, there is an increase in the consumption of this syrup. Also, chocolate syrup and honey are the most common sweeteners which are used and available in different retail formats. Therefore, the availability of a large number of substitutes for coconut syrup impedes the expansion of the coconut sugar market.
