The rising incidence of diabetes, the rising demand for food with low calories, and the sugar taxes imposed on sugary drinks are the major factors driving the growth of the sugar-free products market. The regular consumption of high-calorie products negatively impacts health leading to health issues such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular and liver diseases. These factors have influenced people to reduce sugar intake and adopt sugar-free products.

The Impact of COVID-19 on the Sugar-free Food and Beverage Market

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the global economy. Numerous countries worldwide imposed lockdown restrictions to curb the spread of the virus and ensure social distancing. These nationwide lockdowns affected travel & transportation and all non-essential trade. Many industries were impacted, hindering manufacturing and distribution operations globally. The sugar-free products industry faced significant disruptions due to supply chain disruptions and raw material & workforce shortages. In addition, imports and exports across many countries were restricted or delayed.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic led to the adoption of some best-practice models in the food industry as it highlighted the importance of hygienic and nutritious foods with reduced sugar, calories, and fats in preventing diseases. The food industry witnessed an unprecedented demand, particularly for low-calorie food products.

According to an article published by the Massachusetts General Hospital in August 2021, cutting down 20% of sugar from packaged foods and 40% from beverages could prevent 2.48 million cases of cardiovascular disease, 490,000 deaths related to cardiovascular disease, and 750,000 diabetes cases in the U.S. Therefore, many companies in the food industry have already started cutting down sugars and producing sugar-free products sweetened with sugar substitutes or naturally sweetened.

In addition, there was a rapid surge in demand for sugar-free and immunity-boosting products as people sought solutions to boost overall health and wellbeing. The COVID-19 pandemic also compelled health-conscious customers to turn to low-calorie products. Hence, the increasing health consciousness among consumers and high demand for low-sugar solutions have encouraged manufacturers and product formulators to opt for sugar-free food & beverages.

Moreover, the spread of COVID-19 in the U.S. encouraged the population to adopt healthy lifestyles and food habits. For instance, according to the Food Information Council survey 2021, in 2020, 85% of Americans experienced a change in food habits. These changes in food habits accelerated the adoption of healthy trends in the U.S. and increased the demand for sugar-free products.

Thus, growing health & wellness concerns, high demand for dietary supplements, and the increased consumption of sugar-free and low-calorie food products are expected to drive the growth of the sugar-free products market.

The sugar-free food and beverage market is segmented based on type (sugar-free beverages, sugar-free food products [sugar-free bakery, sugar-free dairy, sugar-free confectionery {gums and mints, chocolate confectionery, and sweet & candy confectionery}, other sugar-free food products], sugar-free nutrition and health supplements, tabletop sweeteners, and other sugar-free products); source (sugar substitutes-based sugar-free products [polyols, stevia, sucralose, acesulfame potassium {ace-k}, luo han guo {monk fruit extract}, saccharin, neotame, aspartame, other sugar substitutes], naturally sweetened sugar-free products); distribution channel (supermarkets/hypermarkets, specialty stores, convenience stores, online retail, other distribution channels); and geography.

However, the sugar-free food products segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period of 2022–2029.
