Market Overview

The syrup market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The COVID-19 outbreak affected the food and beverage industry temporarily during the first quarter of the pandemic due to production halt and strict government restrictions. However, due to the rise in consumption of homemade food, the demand for flavored toppings like syrups increased in the market. Many companies came up with new product innovations to recover the lost sales during the pandemic. For instance, in 2020, Monin launched three new syrups in flavors such as dragonfruit, pineberry, and orange spritz. These syrups had no artificial additives and were clean-label products.

The syrup market is witnessing an upsurge in demand because of the wide use of syrups in different food items. The market is largely driven by the increasing demand for syrups to be consumed with food products, especially convenience and ready-to-eat food. The flexibility in syrup formulation is an important factor that helps in boosting the use of the product as a taste enhancer and sweetener. Apart from sweet flavored syrups, savory flavored syrups are also available, catering to the changing preferences of consumers.

Syrups can be used with both food and beverage items, expanding their scope further in the market. They can be used in diluted forms in different beverages like mocktails, cocktails, yogurt, and many others. Among all the syrups, fruit syrup accounts for the largest share due to its wide usage in beverages. The market is driven by the demand for new flavors in beverages. However, one of the major challenges restraining the market is the entry of competitors such as spreads.
