In 2022, the tablets/molded bars segment dominates the market share due to the variety of available flavors, the option for on-the-go consumption, and their versatility in cooking and baking.

In 2022, the milk chocolates segment dominates the market share due to its versatile application in various products, appealing creamy texture, and innovation in flavors and fillings, all strengthened by a commitment to ethical sourcing.

By Price Point: The global chocolate confectionery market can be divided into three segments based on the price point: economy, mid-range, and luxury. During the forecasted period of 2023-2028, the mid-range segment of the chocolate confectionery market is expected to be the fastest-growing segment, due to its universal appeal, perceived quality, affordability, and alignment with the trend of chocolate as a comfort food and snack. The anticipated growth is further fueled by market innovations that expand product variety and accessibility, coupled with rising global disposable incomes, making mid-range chocolates an increasingly accessible luxury.

By Age Group: The global chocolate confectionery market can be divided into three segments according to age group: adult, children, and geriatrics. During the forecasted period of 2023-2028, the geriatrics segment of the chocolate confectionery market is expected to be the fastest-growing segment, due to the rising global aging population, increased health awareness, and products tailored to their dietary needs, like antioxidant-rich and reduced sugar chocolates, as well as their substantial purchasing power. Alternatively, in 2022, the adult segment dominates the market share due to its focus on sophisticated flavors, quality ingredients, and lower sugar contents that appeal to mature palates. The segment's growth is driven by a rising demand for premium confections and health-conscious choices.

By Distribution Channel: The global chocolate confectionery market can be divided into six segments based on distribution channel: supermarkets/hypermarkets, convenience stores, specialty stores, e-commerce, duty-free stores, and others. The e-commerce segment of the chocolate confectionery market is expected to be the fastest-growing due to the increasing consumer preference for online shopping, the convenience of home delivery, and the ability to easily compare products and prices. Additionally, the proliferation of digital platforms and the growth of mobile commerce have expanded the reach of e-commerce, enabling consumers to access a wide variety of chocolate confectionery from different brands and regions, often at competitive prices. While the supermarkets/hypermarkets segment has been the largest in 2022, it is due to their extensive reach, diverse product offerings, and opportunity for customers to inspect product quality firsthand. Their competitive pricing, promotional deals, and provision of a one-stop shopping experience further enhance their appeal and dominance.

By Region: According to this report, the global chocolate confectionery market can be divided into five major regions: Europe (Germany, UK, France, and rest of Europe), North America (the US, Canada, and Mexico), Asia Pacific (Japan, China, India, and Rest of the Asia Pacific), Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. In 2022, Europe dominates the global chocolate confectionery market due to its longstanding tradition and affinity for chocolate, presence of world-renowned brands, and a mature market with high disposable incomes. The indulgence factor, continuous flavor innovation, and a rising health consciousness contributing to the demand for healthier, high-cocoa, low-sugar options, amplify its market standing. Furthermore, consumer preferences for ethically sourced, environmentally-friendly products and packaging have fueled market growth and brand competitiveness.

Although the US has the largest chocolate confectionery market due to high disposable income, a large consumer base, and presence of major industry players, on a regional scale, North America ranks second after Europe. The Asia Pacific chocolate confectionery market is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR from 2023 to 2028, due to the increasing influence of Western cultures, urbanization, and the shift towards online shopping are expected to contribute to the market expansion. India's chocolate confectionery market is set to be the fastest-growing in the Asia Pacific, driven by evolving consumer preferences for healthier options like dark and sugar-free chocolates.

Global Chocolate confectionery Market Dynamics:

Growth Drivers: According to the IMF, the rising GDP per capita in both advanced and developing economies has led to an increase in disposable income, particularly among an expanding middle class. This surge in income has propelled consumer spending on luxury items, including high-quality chocolates, boosting the global chocolate confectionery market. Countries like the UK, and the US have particularly seen a rise in per capita chocolate confectionery expenditure. Further, the market is expected to grow owing to rapid urbanization, growth of e-commerce, health and wellness trends, gifting culture and festive celebrations, marketing and branding initiatives, etc. in recent years.

Challenges: The profitability of the chocolate industry hinges on the costs of key raw materials like cocoa, sugar, and milk, which can be influenced by various factors including climate, political instability, and global supply-demand dynamics. A spike in raw material costs in 2022 heightened the industry's complexity and squeezed profit margins, necessitating effective procurement and hedging strategies. Consequently, diligent cost monitoring and efficient supply chain risk management are pivotal to sustaining profitability in the industry. Additionally, other factors like regulatory changes, health concerns, etc. are other challenges to the market.

Market Trends: The ongoing momentum of the 'snacking culture', driven by busy lifestyles and changing eating habits, is expected to propel the global chocolate confectionery market. Particularly, millennials and Gen Z's preference for convenient, on-the-go options and the general perception of chocolate as a comfort food boost its consumption. With companies innovating to meet these trends through bite-sized portions and re-sealable packaging, the rise of snacking culture is poised to fuel the market's growth significantly. More trends in the market are believed to grow the chocolate confectionery market during the forecasted period, which may include increasing penetration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Data Analytics, growing integration of AR and VR, technological innovations, sustainable practices, expansion into new product categories, personalization & customization, and exotic & novel flavors, etc.

Impact Analysis of COVID-19 and Way Forward:

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a transformative impact on the global chocolate confectionery market, resulting in supply chain disruptions and shifting consumer behaviors, which compelled the industry to focus on healthier variants, e-commerce, and digital marketing strategies. The pandemic's transformative changes presented both challenges and opportunities, paving the way for the chocolate confectionery industry's evolution in the post-COVID era.

The post-COVID impact on the chocolate confectionery market is expected to result in continued e-commerce growth, altered consumption patterns favoring comfort and premium products, recovery of duty-free sales, and a sustained demand for healthier, ethically-sourced options.

Competitive Landscape and Recent Developments:

The global chocolate confectionery market is moderately consolidated, with key players like Mondelez International, Mars Incorporated, Ferrero Group, and Nestle leading the way. The top six consumer facing chocolate confectionery companies held more than 55% of global market share, with the top three alone (Mars, Ferrero and Mondelez) holding more than 30% share.

They respond to consumer interests by continuously innovating in flavors, packaging, and product formats, including premium and dark chocolate offerings.
