Glucose Market Trends



  • Escalating demand from the bakery and confectionery industry to boost the glucose market growth


Glucose helps in imparting sweetness in food and beverage products. Along with that it also acts as a texture-conferring agent and flavor enhancer. It helps in preventing sugar crystallization, which is a necessary feature in confectionery products, which in turn has greatly augmented its application in the confectionery industry. Glucose is usually used in making homogeneous confectionery products such as chocolates and chewing gum. Moreover, liquid glucose is an excellent alternative to sucrose as corn syrup too has the sweetness needed in bakery products and dairy. Glucose is a kind of sweetener that helps in efficiently contributing to a much firmer and chewier texture. Liquid glucose also helps in improving the shelf life of bakery products.


The global bakery industry has been experiencing robust growth over the last few years, primarily driven by rapidly evolving consumer preferences for product varieties in taste, flavors, and freshness. Evolving consumer preferences contribute to the sector’s growth as the food industry has the highest levels of product innovation. The market growth is largely driven by changing lifestyles and growing demand for comfort food. The growth in such markets is driven by the increased health consciousness among consumers and increased consumption of indulgence food. Europe and North America are the key markets for the bakery industry generating maximum revenues. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to be the region with the fastest growth. Furthermore, as per MRFR analysis, the growing bakery industry was worth over USD 475 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow by over 6% in the next couple of years. Countries in Asia-Pacific, such as China, India, Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia, and in the Middle East, such as Saudi Arabia and the UAE, are some of the emerging economies that are anticipated to witness a staggering increase in bakery products consumption in the next couple of years. Additionally, the bakery industry in China has been developing hastily for the past few years, emphasized by China’s increasing middle-class population, ongoing Westernization of diets and lifestyles, and growing demand for convenience food. Furthermore, the growth potential for China’s bakery industry is unparalleled, owing to the country’s population and relatively low consumption base. The per capita consumption of bakery products in China was around 7.2 kilograms per year in 2021.


Moreover, with globalization and the acceptance of cross-cultural festivals and celebrations, the trend of gift exchange has increased across the regions. People tend to gift chocolates on various occasions such as Anniversaries, Birthdays, Valentine’s Day, and different festivals. Owing to this increasing trend of gift exchange, the chocolate industry is witnessing huge demand. Manufacturers are focusing on product innovation and market their products as suitable gift options during festivals. Numerous players are entering the chocolate market looking at the market demand. This increasing trend of chocolate as a gift has created a huge demand for chocolate. Hence, with the growing consumption of bakery and confectionery products, the glucose market is expected to increase rapidly during the review period.

Glucose Market Segment Insights


Glucose form Insights


The glucose market segmentation, based on form, includes Syrup, and Solids. The Syrup segment held the majority share in 2021 concerning the glucose market revenue. This is due to the fruits' and vegetables' significant shelf lives and high nutritional value. Due to its widespread use in food and beverage applications. It is a liquid form of glucose that is produced by hydrolyzing starch using enzymes. The resulting syrup is then processed and refined to produce a high-quality, pure form of glucose syrup. Examples of syrup-based glucose products include corn syrup, rice syrup, and tapioca syrup. Corn syrup is the most commonly used syrup-based glucose in the food and beverage industry due to its high fructose content and low cost. Rice syrup and tapioca syrup are also used in the food and beverage industry as a substitute for corn syrup, particularly in natural and organic food products.
