Global Cocoa Beans Market

Rapidly rising chocolate industries in emerging economies, including China and India, are expected to fuel demand for cocoa beans as intermediates. According to Statista, the average per capita consumption stands at 4.3 kg in 2020 in China. The increasing importance of coating for improved flavoring in the processing of vegetables, fruit and cereals is projected to further increase the demand for products. The product is used in industries such as functional food & beverage, confectionery, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, taking into account its health benefits, including fatigue syndrome regulation, excellent antioxidant properties and reducing the impact of hypertension. There has been an increasing demand for chocolate variants, such as chocolate milk, brownies and dark chocolate, all over the globe. Growing consumer appetite for fine and craft chocolate in line with improved spending capacity is a sign that craft chocolate will have the same consumer interest as other innovative food products such as craft beer and craft cheese. As high quality is the main concern of today’s consumers, bean-to-bar chocolate manufacturers are inclined to show the purity of beans that weigh on the same scale as the growing demand for cocoa beans. Because of its disease-resistant and high-yielding nature, the Forastero type of cocoa beans is used in most of the world’s chocolate production, accounting for more than 80% of its share. Forastero remains highly preferred by chocolate manufacturers over Criollo and Trinitario. High acceptance of chocolate in the F&B sector as a key flavor to create variation in product offerings will continue to catalyze the overall growth of the cocoa beans market.
