Market Drivers

Demand and consumption of chocolate are rising gradually on a global scale. It seems like there is always a need for chocolate for use in baking and confectionery applications. It is projected that rising disposable income supported by emerging economies in nations like India, China, and Brazil will increase demand for chocolate. However, there is a great demand for cocoa butter substitutes in order to meet consumer demands and get around the current lack of cocoa available to make cocoa butter. A vast number of industries, including bakery, confectionery, personal care goods, desserts, seasoning, and others, heavily utilize chocolate. All of these industries offer significant growth potential for the production of cocoa butter substitutes, with a high CAGR predicted for the projected period.

The manufacturers now have a wealth of chances to design possible cocoa butter substitutes and boost sales of their products as a result of the decline in cocoa butter output. Manufacturers of oils and fats are making significant investments in R&D in order to create unique goods and launch their product line on a worldwide scale. Both plant-based and animal-based oils are the subject of extensive research as possible substitutes for cocoa butter.

Investments in R&D can also aid in the development of effective and widespread extraction methods for cocoa butter substitutes. Additionally, a strong emphasis on research should be made globally in order to address some of the primary limitations of cocoa butter substitutes, such as a tendency to bloom and rheological stability.

Market Limitations

Lauric fatty acids are present in coconut oil and palm oil, which are frequently used as substitutes for cocoa butter. Certain nations have imposed strict usage and labeling guidelines to control the consumption of cocoa butter substitutes. For instance, in the US, the sole use of cocoa butter as the fat source is required for items to be classified as chocolate. Additionally, if substitutes for cocoa butter are used in the products, the name of the product must be changed and it cannot still be called chocolate.

Analysis of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak and the accompanying implementation of lockdown measures in numerous nations reduced the pool of labor that was available to carry out the industrial process. Additionally, the transportation sector was also impacted by the lockdowns, which hindered the supply of vital raw supplies. However, the COVID-19-induced lockdown measures caused the world's shipping networks to be disrupted.
