Alternative Sweeteners

As Quoted In The Beverage Network

Gains will be led by continuing market penetration of relatively new entrants to the industry -- including the stevia extract reb-A -- and by those that can be marketed as being “natural”.

US demand to rise 3.3% annually through 2015

US demand for alternative sweeteners is expected to advance 3.3 percent annually through 2015 to $1.4 billion. Gains will be led by continuing market penetration of relatively new entrants to the industry, including the stevia extract rebaudioside-A (reb-A). The more mature segments of the market -- high intensity sweeteners (such as aspartame) and polyols (including sorbitol) -- will see more restrained, though still healthy, increases in demand. Market trends favoring less processed ingredients will drive well-publicized usage of sweeteners that can be marketed as being “natural.” However, continuing consumer preference for reduced-calorie foods and beverages will ensure the ongoing use of ubiquitous sweeteners such as aspartame.

High intensity sweeteners to remain largest segment

Despite the drag of a declining soft drink market, high intensity sweeteners will remain the largest product category among alternative sweeteners, a leadership position rooted in their continuing domination of the large diet soft drink and tabletop sweetener markets. Aspartame will remain the leader in diet soft drinks, while the tabletop market will continue to be dominated by sucralose. Growth in other markets will be healthy, although high intensity sweeteners are used in much lower quantities outside of their two mainstay applications.

Newer alternative sweeteners to grow the fastest

Though expected to remain a fairly small share of the overall market, newer alternative sweeteners will register by far the fastest growth and generate the most interest among food and beverage processors, as well as among consumers. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of reb-A in late 2008 led to high-profile introductions of steviabased products, such as tabletop sweeteners (e.g., Cargill’s TRUVIA), juice beverages, fruit drinks, flavored waters and soft drinks, many of which have met with consumer favor. In 2010, the FDA approved luo han guo (monk fruit) for use as a sweetener in the US; while this product’s potential remains to be seen, its natural profile is on trend with current consumer purchasing decisions. Furthermore, full-calorie agave nectar is gaining traction due to its natural positioning as an alternative to high fructose corn syrup.

Polyols, a mainstay of the alternative sweetener market, will register solid growth in demand. Xylitol will see gains above the polyols segment average as it expands its presence in such applications as chewing gum, where it benefits from a unique profile in adding sweetness, enhancing minty flavors and improving dental health.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $1.2 billion US alternative sweetener industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (e.g., aspartame, sucralose, saccharin, acesulfame potassium, neotame, sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, stevia, agave nector) and market (e.g., food, beverages, personal care products, pharmaceuticals).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 25 industry players, including NutraSweet, Tate & Lyle and Roquette Frères.
