As a result, their bodies' imbalanced energy intake is to blame. The number of calories consumed outweighs the number of calories burnt by the body. Obesity and fat storage in the body result from calorie-dense food consumption. Several health issues, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and cancer, are brought on by obesity. As a result, customers have become increasingly demanding low-calorie sweeteners for food and beverages in recent years. One of the main causes of the rise in people with diabetes worldwide is the massive consumption of sugar and sugar-based food items in nations like the United States, China, Japan, and India.

The usage of goods without added sugars and sweeteners has greatly expanded due to consumers' rising preference for healthy foods and growing attention to excellent health and wellness. National government initiatives in France and the U.K. to limit sugar consumption through selective taxes, product reformulations, and explanatory front package labels would aid Sugar Alternative market expansion. These initiatives support WHO's 2015-2020 European Food and Nutrition Action Plan's policy recommendations for a better food environment.

Twenty government agencies enacted levies in 2015 due to the World Health Organization's 2013–2020 Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Non communicable Diseases (GAP), particularly for Sugar-sweetened Beverages (SSB). By the middle of 2018, 39 nations had implemented nutrition levies and had increased their adherence to measures of voluntary sugar reduction. The Indian NITI Aayog also suggested in 2022 that the Indian government implement tariff regulations for foods with high sugar content. Thus, this aspect is anticipated to accelerate Sugar Alternative market revenue.
