Analyst Review

According to the insights of the CXOs, the global sugar-free mint market is expected to witness robust growth during the forecast period. The rising health consciousness among consumers is increasing the sales of sugar-free mint confectionery. This product posed healthy competition to the market studied, in the recent year, with the introduction of hybrid products composed of mint. The consumer preference for mint confectionery remains high, compared to chewing gum, due to its oral benefit and low sugar content. An impulse purchase, convenient packing, and innovation in products with various flavors have fueled the growth of the market around the globe.
