The global chocolate industry has been in a moderate growth trajectory since the last five years. This growth is largely fueled by the increased global demand for premium chocolate. The major developing countries such as China and India are expected to offer great opportunities to the global chocolate industry; thanks to the use of chocolate as a functional food. Organic and fair trade chocolate is a rapidly growing segment of the industry. With consumers developing more awareness regarding environment-friendly products, this segment is expected to rise rapidly in the next five years. One of the major concerns for the chocolate industry is the rising number of counterfeit products. This is a great threat for the overall confectionery market and chocolate is no exception.

The global chocolate market is highly consumer driven and companies need to focus on their development and marketing strategies towards capturing a larger consumer base, and acquiring new markets. The major strategies used are consolidation of processes, and enhancement of brand image through corporate social responsibility.

Cocoa is the main raw material for chocolate production and has no other substitute. Moreover, it can only be grown within 10 degrees (latitudes) of the equator. Due to this constraint, global production of cocoa is highly concentrated in West African countries such as Ghana, Cote d'Ivoire, Cameroon, and Nigeria. The cocoa fruit is harvested twice a year in the form of a main crop and an intermediary crop (also termed as mid-crop). The main crop is larger than the mid-crop though the relative size varies according to the country where it is produced. Emulsifiers are basically used in food and pharmaceutical applications. The global emulsifier market was valued at around $1 billion in 2010. Lecithin has the highest share of around 30% of the global emulsifiers market.

Vanilla is the most preferred flavor in the chocolate industry. A number of other important flavors such as mint, coffee, strawberry, and orange are being increasingly used these days as the consumer is more open to experimenting; however, the traditional chocolate flavor is still the most sought-after. Almost 90% of the total vanilla used as a flavor is synthetic. The major demand for sugar is fueled by the manufacturing and food preparation sectors, including the beverages market. Developing economies such as India, China, and Indonesia are expected to account for more than 3.2 million tons (72%) of the overall sugar consumption by 2015. These are the same countries expected to witness high CAGR in the global chocolate market. The growth in the overall sugar market is attributed to India, a result of the expansion in the sugarcane area, and generally favorable weather.
