Future of Sugar in Consumer Markets Discussed in New Euromonitor Report Now Available at MarketPublishers.com12 Nov 2014 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON - Health concerns associated with diabetes, obesity as well as tooth decay are growing. In the USA alone, for instance, obesity rates are expected to continue increasing in the upcoming years to amount to 46 percent of the local population by 2018.
As a result, measures aimed at curbing intake of sugary foods are taken. For instance, some countries are introducing such legislation, while forms of sugar tax already exist in such countries as Hungary, India, France, Finland, etc. Companies that use sugar in their products are forced to cut sugar content and focus on the development of natural substitutes for artificial sweeteners.
As of 2013, more than 50 percent of consumers were involved in weight management or weight loss systems, with approximately one fifth being on a formal diet. Besides, consumers have started to pay more attention to levels of hidden sugars in alcoholic drinks.
