The global raw beetroot sugar market is estimated to witness a moderate growth rate of around 6.2% during the forecast period of 2023–2028 and was valued at around US$ 5.1 billion in 2022. The global raw beetroot sugar market is primarily driven by increasing health consciousness, rising demand for organic and natural products, and growing plant-based and vegan diets.
Beetroot sugar has a distinct flavor profile that sets it apart from traditional cane sugar. Its earthy, slightly sweet taste makes it a desirable ingredient in various culinary applications, including baking, confectionery, and beverage manufacturing. The unique flavor of beetroot sugar can add a touch of complexity to food and beverage products, attracting consumers seeking novel taste experiences.
Moreover, the cultivation of sugar beets for beetroot sugar production is considered more sustainable and environmentally friendly compared to sugarcane production. Sugar beets require less water and land to grow, and they can be grown in regions with colder climates. This aspect resonates with consumers who are concerned about the environmental impact of their food choices.
The demand for brown sugar can be driven by consumers who prefer the unique flavor and depth that it adds to their culinary creations
The Brown (Dark) Sugar segment is expected to gain considerable growth during the forecast period 2023-2028. Brown sugar is a type of beetroot sugar that contains molasses, which gives it a darker color and a richer flavor compared to white sugar. Brown sugar is commonly used in baking, and cooking, and as a sweetener in various food and beverage products. It offers a distinctive taste and can enhance the flavor profile of dishes.
The demand for brown sugar can be driven by consumers who prefer the unique flavor and depth that it adds to their culinary creations. Additionally, brown sugar is often associated with a perception of being less processed or more natural compared to white sugar, which may appeal to health-conscious consumers.
However, Organic sugar is in line with the growing demand for organic and natural food products. Consumers who prioritize organic choices may opt for organic sugar to avoid potential exposure to synthetic chemicals and support sustainable agricultural practices.
