Increasing awareness about the health benefits of dark chocolate in improving cardiovascular health and its role as an antioxidant has added up to its popularity amongst consumers. There has also been an increase in the demand for seasonal chocolate, especially in the western markets. Changing lifestyles, increasing disposable incomes and rapid urbanization, especially in Asia has helped the market to expand there. A significant amount of world’s chocolate goes to the convenience foods sector, which includes a plethora of products like cakes, cookies, etc. It is also an essential ingredient in some ice-creams and finds extensive use in the flavouring industry.
Expansion in convenience foods has also led to the growth of the chocolate business. As the majority of chocolate that reaches consumers is sweet, there is still a scope for low-fat, sugar-free milk chocolates to expand their market, considering growing health concerns. One of the major restraining factors for the chocolate business is fluctuating cocoa prices and heavy dependence on west-African nations, like Ivory Coast for the supply of cocoa beans.
Pure chocolate is segmented into coverture and regular chocolate. On the basis of type, the three main segments include milk chocolate, white chocolate and dark chocolate.
