The global low-calorie sweetener market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Low-calorie sweeteners consist of fewer to no-calories and a higher intensity of sweetness per gram as compared to table sugar, fruit juice concentrates, and corn syrup. Also known as non-nutritive sweeteners, artificial sweeteners, sugar substitutes, and high-intensity sweeteners, low-calorie sweeteners can be obtained from both natural and synthetic sources. Some of the common types of these sweeteners include aspartame, acesulfame-K, saccharin, sucralose, neotame and advantame. They are used in a vast array of sugar-free and low-calorie food products, ranging from carbonated beverages and dairy-based desserts to confectionery and bakery items.
The global low-calorie sweetener market is primarily driven by a significant increase in the number of people who have diabetes. This can be accredited to the low glycemic index of most low-calorie sweeteners that does not affect the insulin level in patients after ingestion. Some of these sweeteners are also known to aid in digestion and lowering high cholesterol levels, owing to which health-conscious consumers are rapidly adopting them into their diets. Other than food and beverages, these sweeteners are also used across the pharmaceutical industry as excipients and bodying agents in various drugs and nutraceutical products. Furthermore, with the advancements in technology, manufacturers are developing innovative product variants with superior quality and improved efficacy. They are also focusing on attractive and unique promotional strategies and creating awareness among consumers regarding the health benefits of the low-calorie sweeteners. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global low-calorie sweetener market to grow at a CAGR of 4.30% during 2021-2026.
