Outlook of the global chewing gum market

The global market for chewing gums is anticipated to witness moderate growth and will generate revenues of over USD 23 billion by 2020. Much of this market’s growth can be attributed to the perceived oral and dental health benefits of sugar-free chewing gums. According to the International Chewing Gum Association (ICGA), chewing sugar-free gum increases saliva production. This increase in the saliva production subsequently reduces instances of plaque formation and tooth decay significantly. Additionally, chewing gum products like nicotine gum are regarded as effective aids to quit smoking. The consumption of sugar-free chewing gum also helps clean food debris from the teeth and reduces stress.

According to this market research report, the global market for chewing gums will witness strong growth in the Americas. This region was the largest market for chewing gums during 2015 and will experience a slight decline in the demand for gums due to the populace’s growing preference for mints. Canada and the US are mature markets for gum products. However, despite the chewing gum market in the US being highly penetrated, it will continue to grow at a steady pace due to various category innovations taking place in the industry.

Overview of the global yeast market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global yeast market to grow moderately at a CAGR of around 9% between 2016 and 2020. Factors like the rising demand for bakery products and shift towards natural flavoring are driving growth in the global yeast market.

The high demand for natural ingredients and the advances in the formulation are contributing to the high demand for yeast in Europe.

Also, the demand for clean-labeled and healthier products in Europe is further driving the yeast market in this region.
