概要

世界のチョコレート市場規模は、2023年に1,622億米ドルに達しました。今後、IMARC Groupは、2024年から2032年にかけて2.9%の成長率(CAGR)を示し、2032年までに2,134億米ドルに達すると予測しています。消費者の嗜好の変化、健康志向の高まり、急速な世界化、消費者の関心を引くための新製品、フレーバー、パッケージのイントロダクション、持続可能性への関心の高まり、経済状況の変化、健康とウェルネスの動向の高まりなどが、市場を推進している主な要因です。

チョコレートはカカオ豆から作られる菓子であり、収穫、発酵、乾燥、焙煎、粉砕といった複雑な工程を経て、チョコレートの基本成分であるカカオマスが作られます。このカカオマスをさらに加工して、ダークチョコレート、ミルクチョコレート、ホワイトチョコレートなど、さまざまな形のチョコレートを作ることができます。ダークチョコレートは、カカオ固形分とカカオバターの割合が高く、ほのかな苦味のある濃厚な風味が特徴です。一方、ミルク・チョコレートは、固形ミルクまたは粉乳を含み、クリーミーで甘い味を与えます。ホワイト・チョコレートは、ココアバター、砂糖、固形ミルクで構成されているが、ココア固形分が含まれていないため、独特の甘さとクリーミーさがあります。

消費者の嗜好はチョコレート市場の形成に極めて重要な役割を果たしています。プレミアム・チョコレートや職人手作りチョコレート、オーガニック・オプション、エキゾチック・フレーバーへの需要の高まりなど、味覚嗜好の変化が業界内のイノベーションを促進しています。さらに、健康志向の消費者がより健康的なチョコレートを求めるようになり、その結果、健康に良いとされるダークチョコレートが台頭してきました。メーカー各社は、カカオ含有量が高く砂糖が少ないチョコレートを製造することで対応しています。この他にも、チョコレート市場の世界化は、市場プレーヤーに新たな機会をもたらしています。アジアとラテンアメリカの新興市場では、可処分所得の増加と都市化により、チョコレートの消費が増加しています。これに加えて、チョコレート産業は絶え間ない革新が特徴です。メーカー各社は、消費者の関心を引くために新製品、フレーバー、パッケージングを発表しています。さらに、他の飲食品業界とのコラボレーションにより、ユニークなチョコレート・ベースの製品が生まれています。これに伴い、チョコレート業界では倫理的で持続可能な慣行が重要になってきています。消費者は、カカオ生産が環境や倫理に与える影響について、ますます関心を高めています。企業は、持続可能な調達、フェアトレード慣行、透明性のあるサプライチェーンに投資することで対応しています。さらに、チョコレート企業がプレミアム・ブランドとしての地位を確立し、顧客ロイヤルティを高めるためには、効果的なマーケティングとブランド戦略が不可欠です。特にソーシャルメディアは、チョコレート製品をマーケティングするための強力なツールとなっています。

チョコレート市場の動向と促進要因:

消費者の嗜好

近年の顕著な変化のひとつは、プレミアム・チョコレートや職人技を駆使したチョコレートへの需要の高まりです。消費者は独特の風味、高品質の素材、独特の食感を求めています。この動向は、ショコラティエやメーカーに、単一原産カカオ豆、エキゾチックフルーツ、スパイス、さらには風味調味料などのグルメ素材を試すよう促しています。さらに、オーガニック・ナチュラル・チョコレートの需要も高まっています。健康志向の消費者は、添加物や保存料、人工香料の少ない製品を求めています。この変化は、有機カカオ豆から作られ、ステビアのような天然甘味料で甘味をつけたチョコレートの生産につながっています。また、消費者の嗜好の進化は、唐辛子を効かせたチョコレート、シーソルトとキャラメル、さらには花の香りのするチョコレートなど、多様な風味の組み合わせの探求にも及んでいます。その結果、ショコラティエはチョコレート愛好家の舌の肥えた人たちに応えるべく、絶えず革新を続けています。

健康志向の高まり

消費者は健康志向を強めており、食生活に合ったチョコレートを求めています。カカオ含有量の高いダークチョコレートは、抗酸化作用が期待でき、糖分が少ないため、より健康的な選択肢として認識されています。これがダークチョコレートの成長に拍車をかけています。チョコレート・メーカーは、製品の健康上の利点を宣伝することで対応しています。カカオに含まれる抗酸化物質であるフラボノイドの存在を強調しており、心血管系への効果が期待されています。さらに、砂糖の摂取を控えている人々に対応するため、砂糖不使用や砂糖控えめのチョコレート・オプションへの関心が高まっています。製品に含まれるカカオ固形分の割合を明確に伝えるプレミアムチョコレートブランドの台頭は、消費者が透明性とより健康的な選択を望んでいることを示しています。全体として、健康への配慮は、健康志向の消費者の進化する要求に応えるため、チョコレートの処方とマーケティングの革新に拍車をかけています。

急速な世界化と市場拡大

特にアジアとラテンアメリカの新興市場では、チョコレートの消費が急増しています。この成長の背景には、可処分所得の増加、都市化、西洋菓子類に対する評価の高まりがあります。これらの地域では都市化が進むにつれて、消費者の嗜好がパッケージ・チョコレートやブランド・チョコレートにシフトしています。このため、多国籍チョコレート企業は、生産施設の設置や、現地の嗜好に合わせた製品の提供など、これらの市場への投資を増やしています。さらに、eコマースの台頭はチョコレート製品の世界展開を促進し、世界のさまざまな地域の消費者が幅広い選択肢にアクセスできるようにしました。チョコレート市場の世界化は、新たな市場でのプレゼンスを拡大する一方で、企業は多様な文化的嗜好や規制状況を乗り切らなければならないため、チャンスと課題の両方をもたらしています。

The global chocolate market size reached US$ 162.2 Billion in 2023. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 213.4 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 2.9% during 2024-2032. The changing consumer preferences, rising health considerations, rapid globalization, introduction of new products, flavors, and packaging to capture consumer interest, increasing sustainability concerns, changing economic conditions, and growing health and wellness trends are some of the major factors propelling the market.

Chocolate is a confection that is derived from the cacao bean, which undergoes a complex process of harvesting, fermentation, drying, roasting, and grinding to produce cocoa mass, the fundamental ingredient of chocolate. This mass can then be processed further to create various forms of chocolate, including dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate. Dark chocolate contains a high percentage of cocoa solids and cocoa butter, resulting in a rich, intense flavor with subtle bitterness. Milk chocolate, on the other hand, includes milk solids or milk powder, imparting a creamy and sweeter taste. White chocolate consists of cocoa butter, sugar, and milk solids but lacks cocoa solids, resulting in a distinctly sweet and creamy profile.

Consumer preferences play a pivotal role in shaping the chocolate market. Changes in taste preferences, such as a growing demand for premium and artisanal chocolates, organic options, and exotic flavors, have driven innovation within the industry. Additionally, health-conscious consumers are seeking healthier chocolate options, which has led to the rise of dark chocolate due to its perceived health benefits. Manufacturers are responding by producing chocolates with higher cocoa content and less sugar. Other than this, the globalization of the chocolate market has opened up new opportunities for market players. Emerging markets in Asia and Latin America are experiencing increased chocolate consumption due to rising disposable incomes and urbanization. Besides this, the chocolate industry is marked by continuous innovation. Manufacturers are introducing new products, flavors, and packaging to capture consumer interest. Additionally, collaborations with other food and beverage industries have led to unique chocolate-based products. In line with this, ethical and sustainable practices have become critical in the chocolate industry. Consumers are increasingly concerned about the environmental and ethical impact of cocoa production. Companies are responding by investing in sustainable sourcing, fair trade practices, and transparent supply chains. Moreover, effective marketing and branding strategies are essential for chocolate companies to establish themselves as premium brands and create customer loyalty. Social media, in particular, has become a powerful tool for marketing chocolate products.

Chocolates Market Trends/Drivers:

Consumer Preferences and Tastes

One of the notable shifts in recent years is the increasing demand for premium and artisanal chocolates. Consumers are seeking unique flavor profiles, high-quality ingredients, and distinctive textures. This trend has prompted chocolatiers and manufacturers to experiment with gourmet ingredients such as single-origin cocoa beans, exotic fruits, spices, and even savory elements. Additionally, the demand for organic and natural chocolates has been on the rise. Health-conscious consumers are looking for products with fewer additives, preservatives, and artificial flavors. This shift has led to the production of chocolates made from organic cocoa beans and sweetened with natural sweeteners like stevia. The evolving tastes and preferences of consumers also extend to the exploration of diverse flavor combinations, such as chili-infused chocolate, sea salt and caramel, and even chocolate with floral notes. As a result, chocolatiers are continually innovating to cater to the discerning palates of chocolate enthusiasts.

Rising Health Considerations

Consumers are becoming more health-conscious and are seeking chocolate options that align with their dietary choices. Dark chocolate, with its higher cocoa content, is perceived as a healthier choice due to its potential antioxidant properties and lower sugar content. This has fueled the growth of the dark chocolate segment. Chocolate manufacturers are responding by promoting the health benefits of their products. They are emphasizing the presence of flavonoids, which are antioxidants found in cocoa that may have cardiovascular benefits. Moreover, there is a growing interest in sugar-free or reduced-sugar chocolate options to cater to those watching their sugar intake. The rise of premium chocolate brands that clearly communicate the percentage of cocoa solids in their products is indicative of consumers' desire for transparency and healthier choices. Overall, health considerations have spurred innovation in chocolate formulation and marketing to meet the evolving demands of health-conscious consumers.

Rapid Globalization and Market Expansion

Emerging markets, particularly in Asia and Latin America, have witnessed a surge in chocolate consumption. This growth is attributed to rising disposable incomes, urbanization, and a growing appreciation for Western confectionery. As these regions become more urbanized, there is a shift in consumer preferences towards packaged and branded chocolates. This has led to increased investments by multinational chocolate companies in these markets, including setting up production facilities and adapting product offerings to suit local tastes. Additionally, the rise of e-commerce has facilitated the global reach of chocolate products, allowing consumers from different parts of the world to access a wide range of options. The globalization of the chocolate market presents both opportunities and challenges, as companies must navigate diverse cultural preferences and regulatory landscapes while expanding their presence in new markets.

Chocolate Industry Segmentation:

IMARC Group provides an analysis of the key trends in each segment of the global chocolate market report, along with forecasts at the global, regional, and country levels for 2024-2032. Our report has categorized the market based on the product type, product form, application, pricing, and distribution.

Breakup by Product Type:

White Chocolate

Milk Chocolate

Dark Chocolate

Others

Milk chocolate dominates the market

The report has provided a detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the product type. This includes white chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and others. According to the report, milk chocolate represented the largest segment.

Milk chocolate has a widespread appeal due to its inherently sweeter and creamier taste profile compared to other types of chocolate. This sweetness, attributed to the addition of milk solids and sugar, resonates with a broad consumer base, including children and individuals with a penchant for milder flavors. Additionally, it serves as a versatile ingredient in various culinary applications, such as baking, confectionery, and dessert production. The creamy texture of milk chocolate lends itself well to creating a wide range of chocolate-based products, including chocolate bars, truffles, and chocolate-covered snacks. Moreover, milk chocolate often serves as an introductory chocolate type for individuals who may be transitioning from more bitter or intense varieties like dark chocolate. This ease of entry into the world of chocolate consumption contributes to its consistent popularity.
