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

Malaysia is a southeast Asian country with a democratic constitutional monarchy government. It is the fifth largest recipient of FDI in Asia with most of the investment in the manufacturing, finance, mining and distribution sectors. Malaysia has 16 bilateral trade agreements, is a part of ASEAN and WTO, and is currently negotiating a Malaysia-European Free Trade Agreement.

Malaysia is located close to major Asia-Pacific markets and companies investing in Malaysia find it a cost-effective gateway to Asian markets. It has a well-developed financial sector, English-speaking majority, educated workforce, and follows high standards of business and legal practices. The government has a provided many incentives to encourage FDI like liberalizing expatriate employment regime and MSC program, which was launched in 2003 to extend tax exemption from 10-15 years for new technology companies and from 5-10 years for priority companies. It has not been able to generate more foreign investments due to bureaucracy, shortage of skilled workers, and the governments’ policies favoring indigenous Malaysians.

A strong financial sector, developed infrastructure, significant resources, competitive costs, and liberal and transparent investment policies make Malaysia an ideal destination for foreign investment.
