Natural Alternative Sweeteners Market in the US - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US demand for natural alternative sweeteners is forecast to rise 6.9% per year through 2021, outpacing growth in the overall US sweetener market. With demand for sugar and HFCS flat or on the decline, natural sweeteners will fill a greater niche in the market, replacing both conventional and artificial sweeteners, including aspartame and sucralose. Consumers have increasingly preferred products with the “all natural” or “clean label,” providing double-digit annual growth opportunities for stevia, agave nectar, coconut sugar, and arythritol over the past 10 years.

This study analyzes the $262 million US market, presenting historical demand data (2006, 2011, 2016) and forecasts (2021) by product, including xylitol, stevia, agave nectar, erythritol, coconut sugar, and monk fruit. Data is also presented for market segments, including food applications, beverages, personal care products, and pharmaceuticals. In addition, information is presented on next generation natural alternative sweeteners. The study also assesses key industry players in the US market, such as Cargill, Cumberland Packing, PureCircle, Roquette Freres, Tate & Lyle, and TC Heartland.
