Agave Syrup Market Analysis

The global agave syrup market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The agave syrup market was temporarily hit due to the COVID-19 pandemic but soon recovered its lost sales. The strict lockdowns in different areas in the world led to the shutdown of shops and stores. This made the customers adapt to online retail channels, thereby increasing the sales of different food and beverage, including agave syrup. Moreover, World Health Organization advised limiting the energy intake in the form of sugar to less than 5%, which possibly added to the market growth.

The market is mainly driven by the diabetic population in the world. Alongside, the health consciousness of consumers and the urge to stay fit and active adds to the demand for agave syrup in the market further. The growing awareness regarding the negative health effects of sugar has led to the increasing demand for a natural sugar substitute. The rising case of obesity and diabetes has propelled the customers toward natural and simple ingredient products, catering to the need for agave syrups.

Also, innovations with new product formulations have further fueled market growth for agave syrups. Consumers are more focused on new varieties in product formulation, along with clean label solutions. However, the decreased availability of sugar substitutes and the development of artificial sweeteners have shifted the preferences of consumers towards artificial sweeteners and are thus restraining the growth of the market.
