London, United Kingdom, April 21, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- High intensity sweeteners (HIS) are extensively used as an alternative to sweeteners and sugar, because they contribute only a few or even no calories, when added to foods and beverages. Enhancing concerns about obesity as well as diabetes and heart diseases associated with the consumption of sugar and other caloric have encouraged consumers to look for healthier alternatives, including zero-calorie or low-calorie sweeteners in food and beverages.
Although artificial sweeteners currently capture the biggest chunk of the overall HIS market, natural HIS are anticipated to see the fastest growth in the coming years. Furthermore, escalating concerns associated with artificial sweeteners like saccharin and aspartame are propelling consumers’ interest in natural sweeteners.
Growth of the HIS market has slowed down in developed countries of the North American and Western European regions, primarily due to falling consumption of soft drinks. Still, robust growth in emerging countries of APAC, Middle East and Africa is predicted to continue.
The value of the artificial HIS sector is expected to reach USD 1.7 billion this year and, further, exceed USD 2 billion by the year 2022, showing a 3.5% CAGR in the year ahead.
The value of the natural HIS sector is predicted to touch USD 657.7 million this year and, further, USD 958.8 million by 2022, exhibiting growth at a 7.8% CAGR.
