Summary

Table of Contents

The global milk chocolate market was worth US$ 63.2 Billion in 2018, registering a CAGR of 3.4% during 2011-2018. Milk chocolate is one of the most popular cocoa products made from a mixture of sugar, chocolate liquor and condensed milk or whole milk powder. As compared to plain or dark chocolate, milk chocolate melts easily and has a lighter color and a creamier texture. The consumption of milk chocolate helps in boosting memory, smoothening and hydrating the skin, reducing the risk of heart strokes and attacks, and improving the immune system. In addition, it is a rich source of flavonoids, a type of antioxidants, which eliminate free radicals from the blood stream and improve the blood flow. On account of these benefits, coupled with the rising purchasing power of the consumers, there has been an increase in the consumption of milk chocolate across the globe.

Global Milk Chocolate Market Drivers:
In recent years, manufacturers have started introducing new variants of milk chocolate by combining it with other food items such as orange, caramel, cookies and nuts. Apart from this, they have also launched products in different shapes and sizes such as bars, chips, cubes and wafers. The availability of these variants has given a rise to the overall consumption of milk chocolate. Moreover, milk chocolate is increasingly being used for the formulation of a wide range of beverages and confectionery products, such as cakes, milkshakes, croissants and hot chocolate, which is contributing to the growth of the global milk chocolate market. However, a shift in consumer preferences towards dark chocolate, which is perceived to offer superior health benefits, can pose a threat to the consumption of milk chocolate in the upcoming years. By 2024, the market value is further projected to cross US$ 73 Billion, growing at a CAGR of 2.3% during 2019-2024.
