Global sugar confectionery market overview

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global sugar confectionery market will grow steadily at a CAGR of around 4% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the wide reach through organized retailing as one of the primary factors for the sugar confectionery market growth. Vendors are highly dependent on these large organized retailers for revenue as ready-to-eat (RTE) food items are primarily sold through these retailers. The supermarkets, hypermarkets, and specialty stores constitute a major distribution channel that offers affordable food products. The rising disposable income of the consumers and the growing urbanization influences the growth and demand for supermarkets and this will in turn, influence the growth of the sugar confectionery market.

Vendors can now enhance their profitability by offering their products through the online distribution channels as well. The growth of the retail channel has been fueled by the increasing number of internet users, online transactions, and willingness to buy immediately. The convenience of online shopping and the incorporation of enhanced security features for efficient customer service and payments along with highly user-friendly web-designs offer enhanced product visibility. The vendors in this market must innovate and develop their online channels to target the internet savvy online customer segment.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The sugar confectionery market is highly-competitive and is fragmented due to the presence of many global, local, and small vendors who compete based on price, product differentiation, distribution, promotion, and quality. Vendor performance is affected by technological advancements, declining profit margins, the unorganized and intense competition, and the changing tastes and preferences of the consumers. To gain competitive advantage, the sugar confectionery vendors must differentiate their products and services through a clear and unique value proposition.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Ferrara Candy Company
  • Mondelēz International
  • Nestlé
  • Perfetti Van Melle

The other prominent vendors in the market are Adams & Brooks, Anthony-Thomas Candy, STORCK USA, DB Bourbon Candy, Cloetta, Ezaki Glico, Ferrero, Hammond's Candies, Meiji Holdings, and Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company.
