Coconut sugar market to reach $408.7 million by 2031, growing at a 5.5% CAGR

June 13, 2024 | Newswires |

The coconut sugar market is expanding due to increasing demand for healthier sweeteners and sustainable products. Valued at $243.4 million in 2021, it's projected to reach $408.7 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.5%. Coconut sugar's lower glycemic index attracts health-conscious consumers managing blood sugar levels. Its medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) offer benefits like improved weight management and cognitive function, appealing further due to lauric acid's antimicrobial properties.

In the coconut-based beverage sector, alternatives to dairy are favored by plant-based diets and vegan lifestyles, boosting coconut sugar and milk usage. Manufacturers innovate with flavors and nutritional enhancements, catering to gluten-free and organic preferences. Market segments include organic and conventional coconut sugar, with organic variants surging due to sustainable product interest. Commercially, industries like food, beverages, cosmetics, and personal care drive bulk purchases for formulation. While personal care products lead currently, cosmetics are poised for rapid growth, fueled by the demand for natural ingredients in skincare.
