The overall alternative sweetener market is forecast to witness steady growth during the outlook period. Growing demand for healthier low-calorie food products is one of the main factors boosting the industry demand for alternative sweeteners globally. Manufacturers aim to launch other sugar substitutes due to growing health consciousness among consumers. Additionally, increasing prices of sugar helps to boost the growth of the alternative sweetener market gradually.

A new study reveals that low-calorie sweeteners do not increase the risk of cancer. Natural alternative sweeteners are useful in managing calorie count, cutting down on carbohydrates, and improving global health. Increasing obesity rate, rising diabetic population, and other health problems are fueling the sector demand for low-calorie sugar-free products.

Moreover, overconsumption of diet sodas and colas that contain sucralose, aspartame, or saccharin may cause health problems including diabetes, obesity, and heart diseases. People consuming diet sodas may suffer from the risk of metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease. Artificial sweeteners are increasingly preferred over table sugar among health-conscious consumers, as they virtually contain no calories.

In terms of product type, the sector is divided into high fructose syrup, high intensity sweetener, and low intensity sweetener. In terms of applications, alternative sweeteners are mostly divided into beverages including diet-carbonated soft drinks, ready-to-drink tea and coffee, juices; and food products including confectionaries, tabletop sweeteners, chewing gum, chocolate, bakery products, and dairy products. Moreover, alternative sweeteners are used in personal care products including toothpaste, mouthwash, and glycerin as well as in pharmaceutical products. High intensity sweetener is the most popular form of sweetener among consumers, succeeded by high fructose syrup. Low intensity sweeteners and polyols are gradually replacing high intensity sweeteners and high fructose syrup in the overall food and beverage segment.

The analysis also comprises drivers, market restraints and opportunities of the alternative sweetener market. The market research features current market trends and offers the outlook from 2015 to 2021. We have also covered the current market scenario for alternative sweeteners and highlighted its future trends that are likely to affect the market demand for alternative sweeteners.

By territory, the sector has been divided into north america, EU, Asia-Pac, and Rest of the globe. The present market size and estimate until 2021 are provided in the study. North America (NA) held the most important market share of the alternative sweetener market in 2014. Market increase of this region is due to growing problem of obesity and other health issues including cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Therefore, food and beverage manufacturers are focusing on producing low calorie, sugar free products to meet the consumers need in North America continent. Apart from this, growing obesity rate causes the declining of soft drinks consumption in North America (NA) and Europe (EU) and that implies the fall in usage of high intensity sweetener in these areas. Owing to this, the industry demand for artificial sweetener is decreasing in these areas and a meaningful shift in preferences and behavior from carbonated soft drinks was seen in EU and North America continent. Asia Pacific (APAC) held the second biggest share in 2014 succeeded by Europe (EU) and RoW of the overall alternative sweetener market.
