Chocolate Industry

Global Cocoa and Chocolate Market Share 2022 by Revenue US$74720 Million Regional Segmentation and Opportunity Forecast to 2026

Cocoa & Chocolate Market Overview:

The cocoa and chocolate market is driven by consumer demand for more nutritious foods and better packaging, which is also driving technological advancements in the field. Pasteurization, high pressure processing, UV processing and nanotechnology influence the industry.

The cocoa and chocolate market uses innovations such as Individual Quick Freezing (IQF) to further develop the yield and nature of frozen food sources. The IQF strategy involves moving singular food products down a conveyor line into an impact chiller that rapidly freezes the products. With the IQF strategy, each food is frozen independently, instead of being mass frozen or square frozen.

The cocoa and chocolate market size is expected to reach a CAGR of 7.2% in terms of revenue to reach USD 74,720 million during the forecast period from 2021 to 2026.

The safety of their cocoa and chocolate is a high priority for consumers. Despite the packaging waste, 60% of consumers prefer to buy fresh food in packages, believing that it will stay fresh longer this way. And about 90% of today’s consumers say they prefer packaged fresh foods to avoid contamination. Reusable packaging is definitely the way to go: studies have proven that bins are cheaper after around six loops in the supply chain.
