  • Supermarkets and hypermarkets are the largest channels in the North American confectionery market. The channel held the major share of 44% by value in the overall distribution channels segment for North America's confectionery sales in 2023.

In 2023, chocolates accounted for the majority share of 51% of the value share of the total confectionery category in these channels.
  • Convenience stores are the second most widely preferred distribution channel after supermarkets and hypermarkets for purchasing confectionery products across North America. The segment acquired a 25% market share in terms of value in 2023. The key factors driving consumer preference for these stores are the broader reach and easy access to private-label brands and the increasing expansion of these channels. As of January 2023, there were 150,174 convenience stores in the United States.
  • Online channels are the fastest-growing distribution channel through which confectionery products are consumed in the region. It is projected to register a growth of 23% by value during the period 2024-2027. Consumers are likely to prefer online channels as they provide quick delivery options.
