The U.S. candy market is expected to reach a value of USD 19.6 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Growing consumer expenditure and disposable income and increasing trend towards urbanization is driving the growth of the candy market in the U.S. Candies and chocolates are generating huge amount of sales in the U.S. targeting the sweet tooth among the people. Huge revenue generation of candies is primarily due to their consumption during holidays like Halloween and Easter accounting for around USD 3.5 billion sales.

Currently, around 82% of the population in North America are living in the urban areas with high concentration in mid and large-sized cities.Such huge trend towards urbanization has led to growing awareness for new products and their easy availability.

This is due to the fact that giant players have a significant hold of the candy market in the urban areas.

Children with inclination towards a sweet tooth is a major factor driving the demand of the products.Hence, this group of population is a huge contributor towards revenue generation of the market.

Moreover, key players are creating appealing advertisements targeting the children and young population, thus, attracting them towards impulse purchase. Teenagers are also a significant target population for candies, especially chocolate candies due to high preference for the chocolate flavor.

Increase in product innovation and new product development has led to high growth of the market.Sugar-free candies manufactured by the key players is further expected to boost the market demand for the diabetic population.

Companies are also engaged in new product launch, which is further boosting the demand for candies.For instance, in March 2017, Hershey’s Reese’s brand launched Reese’s Crunchy Cookie Cup.

In May 2016, DeMet’s Candy Company launched a new product, TURTLES Double Chocolate.
