Agave Syrup Market 2
Agave Syrup Market 2

The Global Agave Syrup is Expected to Display an Elevated CAGR of ~5.5% over the forecast period (2021-2027)

The increasing prevalence of obesity among individuals has been the major reason causing a shift in the preference of consumers towards natural sweeteners such as agave syrup. For instance, as per WHO, in 2019, an estimated 38.2 million children under the age of 5 years were overweight or obese. Once considered a high-income country problem, overweight and obesity are now on the rise in low- and middle-income countries, particularly in urban settings. Similarly, in Africa, the number of overweight children under 5 has increased by nearly 24% percent since 2000. Almost half of the children under 5 who were overweight or obese in 2019 lived in Asia.

Moreover, the surging prevalence of obesity and cardiac diseases has led to a surge in demand for natural and low-calorie ingredient-based food products among consumers such as agave syrup. According to a National Diabetes Statistics Report, published by the US Department of Health & Human Services in 2020, 10.5% of the US population had diabetes in 2018, 13.0% of all US adults had diabetes, 2.8% of all US adults met laboratory criteria for diabetes were not aware of or did not report having diabetes, and 21.4% of all US adults were diagnosed with diabetes.

Government agencies, such as American Heart Association (AHA) and American Diabetes Association (ADA), stated that non-nutritive sweeteners (NNS), when used cautiously, may aid in reducing total energy intake and assist with weight loss/control while providing beneficial effects on related metabolic parameters. The growth of this market is mainly driven by factors, such as rising demand for functional food products, growing prevalence of diabetes & obesity, and surging demand for natural sweeteners. However, stringent government regulations and adverse health effects associated with sugar substitutes are expected to restrain the growth of this market to some extent soon.
