The global vegan chocolate confectionery market size is projected to reach $ 1 billion by 2027, with market growth of 12.3% CAGR during the forecast period. Dairy products like milk fat, whey, casein, and milk solids are not used in vegan chocolate because this product does not contain any ingredients obtained from animals.
New York, August 31, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Reportlinker.com announces the publication of the report “Global Vegan Chocolate Confectionery Market By Type, By Product, By Regional Outlook, COVID-19 Impact Analysis Report and Forecast, 2021 – 2027” – https://www.reportlinker.com/p06131638/?utm_source=GNW
Vegan chocolate is made from components derived from plants. They contain less fat and cholesterol than normal chocolates. Vegan food culture is on the rise in established countries which is also contributing to the growth of the vegan chocolate market.
Millennials and the working population are strongly embracing vegan culture, which is expected to increase demand for the product. There are a number of countries that have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, due to which the supply of cocoa has been hampered globally. This reduced the production of cocoa as well as the decline in its sales. Additionally, there has been a drop in demand for premium and artisanal chocolates. On the other hand, the growth of the chocolate market seems to be seeing an increase as there is a growth in consumer demand.
Impact of COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a severe impact on the purchasing habits of customers. They prefer to stock products that provide nutrition and energy, have a private label, and are inexpensive. The coronavirus outbreak has hampered the supply chain that has affected the manufacturing of vegan chocolate products, primarily in crafts and small chocolate businesses.
During the pandemic, most people preferred to store essentials to survive. Chocolate may not be on the list of essentials; however, it is a rewarding and fun-seeking article for consumers. In Europe, supermarkets and other grocery stores were out of stock as most chocolates were sold. Thanks to e-commerce facilities, these markets remain open, which contributes to a rapid market recovery. It is estimated that the vegan chocolate confectionery market will pass through the current bottlenecks without suffering heavy losses.
Based on the type, the market is segmented into milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate. The milk segment acquired the maximum revenue share of the global vegan chocolate confectionery market in 2020. The leading companies are now introducing their famous chocolate confectionery in the vegan chocolate category. This action plan will help the company to gain appreciation from customers all over the world and also lead to increased product sales.
On the basis of product, the market is segmented into Molded Bars, Chips & Bites, Canned & Truffles & Cuts. The molded bars segment dominated the market in 2020. The segment would show the same trend during the forecast period. Chocolate bars are considered the most consumed category of chocolate in the world. Its practical size has made it popular among consumers. Based on annual Google searches, the best chocolates titled Favorite Chocolate in the World are sold in bar form.
On the basis of regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America, Middle East and Africa. North America achieved the maximum revenue share in 2020 and is expected to register a significant growth rate during the forecast period. The growing vegan population is expected to accelerate market growth in the region. Asia-Pacific is said to experience lucrative growth opportunities during the forecast period. Asia is the densely populated continent of the world with a larger population and hence it has a positive impact on food culture across the world.
