Evolution of the Vegan Confectionery Market: From Niche to Mainstream with North America in the Lead

The “Vegan Confectionery Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Product (Chocolate, Sugar, Flour), By Distribution Channel (Offline, and Online), By Region, And Segment Forecasts, 2023 – 2030” report has been added to  ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global vegan confectionery market size is anticipated to reach USD 2.62 billion by 2030. The market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 9.9% from 2023 to 2030

The global vegan confectionery market is experiencing significant growth driven by several key factors. The increasing adoption of veganism, particularly among millennials and the working population, is a primary driver of demand. Consumers are becoming more conscious of animal cruelty and environmental sustainability, leading to a rise in campaigns and awareness efforts, further boosting the market.

Vegan chocolate confectionery is particularly popular among individuals following a flexitarian or vegan diet, as well as those with lactose intolerance and food allergies. The health benefits associated with plant-based chocolates, such as being low in fat and cholesterol, are contributing to market growth.

In response to increasing consumer acceptance of plant-based products, major players like Nestle are investing in research and development to introduce new vegan products. For example, Nestle launched KitKat V, a vegan version of its iconic chocolate bar, catering to a global customer base.

The online distribution channel is expected to experience faster growth, with a projected CAGR of 11.8% during the forecast period. Online purchasing of vegan confectionery is gaining popularity due to factors like free product delivery, convenient payment methods, after-sale customer service, and hassle-free return policies offered by e-retailers.

In contrast, the offline distribution channel, including supermarkets and convenience stores, accounted for a larger share of the market in 2022. Consumers prefer to buy grocery products in physical stores, where they can examine product labels and quality.

The vegan confectionery market remains dynamic, with the regular entry of small and localized players from various countries offering innovative products to meet growing consumer demand and preferences.

This industry’s niche nature and untapped potential present opportunities for both established players and small to medium-sized enterprises to focus on customer acquisition and expand their operations locally, regionally, or globally.

Hello there! I'm a 21-year-old university student majoring in Finnish and Korean Language and Literature. I have a deep passion for art and a profound connection to the natural world. My journey through life has been a colorful one, driven by my love for creativity, music, and the wonders of the great outdoors.
