The Industrial Chocolate market is projected to register a CAGR of 12.50% during the forecast period, 2022-2027.

Manufacturers of consumer chocolate goods use industrial chocolate as their primary raw ingredient. Cocoa ingredients such as cocoa liquor, cocoa butter, and cocoa powder are commonly utilized in the production of chocolate. Cocoa liquor is the primary raw ingredient used in the manufacture of chocolate. The goods are also widely used in the confectionary, beverage, and bakery industries. According to the Food Marketing Technology website, the trend for single-origin cocoa components is continuing to grow as customers satisfy their sweet tooth. There has been a 25% increase in chocolate launches with a single origin claim, creating a great opportunity for cocoa suppliers and chocolate producers.

The market participants are primarily driven by these trends to continue their R&D to provide cutting-edge products. For instance, in 2021, the new chocolate and compound production facility in Baramati, India, was opened by The Barry Callebaut Group, the foremost producer of premium chocolate and cocoa products worldwide. To meet the diverse needs of its clients-international food manufacturers, regional confectioneries, and semi-industrial bakeries and patisseries-the new facility and warehouse include an R&D lab and assembly lines that can produce chocolate and compound in varied delivery formats.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Consumption of Dark Chocolates Owing to Health Benefits

Dark chocolate in particular contains potent antioxidants. Epicatechin, a flavonol, is one of the most advantageous. Plants contain substances called flavonols that reduce inflammation and guard against free radical-induced cell damage. More healthy flavonols are present in chocolate with a higher cocoa concentration.

Most of the advantages identified by various studies are connected to chocolate that contains at least 70% cacao. Research suggests sticking to dark chocolate with minimal processing and at least 70% cacao as a daily pleasure. Also, according to a study published in the journal Appetite, those who ate chocolate, including dark chocolate, at least once a week had a lower prevalence of diabetes and were at a lower risk of diabetes four to five years later. The study of 908 nondiabetic adults and 45 diabetics revealed that people who ate such chocolate less than once per week had twice the risk of diabetes as those who ate it more than once per week.

Owing to such benefits associated with dark chocolates, the consumers are inclining toward dark chocolates claimed products, and to cater to the demand the major end-user industries like confectionery, bakery industries are investing in their R&D and introducing chocolates and cookies with high cocoa concentration which in turn is increasing the demand of industrial chocolates and thereby boasting their market.

Asia-Pacific is the Fastest Growing Region

Asia's chocolate consumption is rapidly increasing, providing the mature industry with an appealing and largely untouched market. Furthermore, Asia has quickly assumed a significant role in chocolate production. Following Ghana and Ivory Coast, Indonesia has climbed to become the world's third-largest cocoa producer. Many corporations, including Mars in Vietnam and Cadbury in Singapore, have chocolate operations in the region. Many are also looking to expand their operations in Asia to meet the rising demand. For instance, in 2020, Cargill partnered with a local manufacturer in India to open its first chocolate manufacturing operation in Asia. The facility began operating in mid-2021 and initially produces 10,000 tons of chocolate compounds.

According to a NASDAQ article, cocoa demand is likely to rebound in 2022, driven by expansion in Asia. According to their study, cocoa bean processing in Asia is expected to increase to around 900,000 tonnes in 2022, up from around 820,000 tonnes the previous year, when supply interruption and lower consumption due to the COVID-19 epidemic curtailed demand. Also, according to the International Cocoa Organization (ICCO), bean processing in Asia is higher than it was before the pandemic, and Asia's second-quarter cocoa grind increased by 3.6% year on year to 228,895 tonnes, according to figures from the Cocoa Association of Asia.

Competitive Landscape

The global industrial chocolate market is highly competitive owing to the presence of multiple regional and multinational companies offering a wide range of industrial chocolate and trying to maintain their leadership position in the market studied.

Major players in the market include Berry Callebaut, Cargill, Cemoi, Puratos, Fuji Oil Co. Ltd., holding a significant share of the market studied and embarking on business strategies including product innovations, partnerships, strengthening their hold over online and offline marketing, and mergers & acquisitions to expand their visibility and portfolio of offerings, thus, augmenting the growth of the market.
