About the Market

The sugar substitutes market, which forms an integral part of the sugar industry, is currently driven by the rising demand for different kinds of sugar substitute products such as high-intensity sweeteners, low-intensity sweeteners, and high-fructose syrup in food, beverage, and healthcare applications. Sugar substitutes are used for weight loss, dental care, diabetes mellitus, reactive hypoglycemia, cost and shelf life contributing to high demand in the market. Saccharin, aspartame, and sucralose are the three primary compounds used as sugar substitutes in the US, with aspartame being the most popular due to a drop in price. China and India account for the largest diabetic population in the world. The artificial sweetener market is set to grow at around 8% per year as consumption of sugar substitutes rises in America, with about 66% of the population consuming beverages with sugar substitutes and 82.3% consuming food with added caloric sweeteners. Tate & Lyle and Cargill are some of the leading companies.

About the Geography

Egypt is an African country, with large oil reserves, led by a semi-presidential government. It was an attractive destination for FDI before the Arab spring. It has a skilled workforce, low labor costs, strategic location, large domestic market, and substantial energy reserves. Egypt is among the top five recipients of foreign investment in Africa with most investments going to the oil & gas, construction, telecommunications, financial services and healthcare sectors.

Since September 2004, the General Authority for Investment and Free Zones (GAFI) has established an economic program to attract foreign investors, together with an average reduction of 35% customs duty and tariff simplification. Though all the economic sectors are open to domestic and foreign investors, those especially targeted by the law, providing the possibility to execute projects under the BOT (build, operate, transfer) form, are agriculture industry, mining, tourism and hospitality, air travel, off-shore shipping transport, goods transport services, oil prospection and drilling, infrastructures. Some strategic sectors like aerospace, defense, and print journalism are subject to specific legislations. Obstacles to investment include excessive bureaucracy, shortage of skilled labor, limited access to credit, slow and cumbersome customs procedures, and non-tariff trade barriers. In addition, rapid population growth continues to curtail the improvement of the standard of living in Egypt.

The condition in Egypt is rapidly improving and opportunities are already arising with growing stability in the country, with infrastructure, energy, and public sectors appealing to foreign investors and FDI pouring into the country.
