    Rising Chocolate Production and Consumption to Trigger Growth

    Chocolates are favorites among consumers across all the regions and ages, which leads to the increased demand for chocolates and chocolate-flavored foods and beverages. Due to rising demand for chocolate and other cocoa-based products, leading manufacturers around the world are planning to increase the production of cocoa to maintain the supply-demand balance. According to leading global organizations such as International Cocoa Organization (ICCO) Food and Agriculture Organization of the United States (FAO), the global cocoa production has been rising steadily over the past few years. The trend of cocoa farming is not popular in the Middle Eastern and African countries anymore, but western regions such as Latin America, Europe, and others are becoming leading cocoa producing areas in the world. The increasing number of cocoa farmers and advanced cocoa cultivation methods are expected to give an impetus to the growth of the global cocoa liquor market during the assessment period.

Cocoa liquor is one of the primary ingredients in various foods such as cakes, ice creams, cookies, brownies, biscuits, candies, and other types of desserts, which is expected to spur the use of cocoa liquor in the chocolate confectionery industry in the upcoming years.

    Increase in Use of Cocoa in Cosmetics and Pharmaceutical Industries

    Cosmetic companies have begun to harness the power of cocoa to bring a level of diversification in the largely staid cosmetics industry in a move that blurs the lines between the food and cosmetics industries. As consumers become critical of the complex ingredient list and marketing strategies adopted by cosmetic companies, several seek a level of simplicity found in the food they consume. Research has shown that cocoa is not only rich in polythenols, but also has more anti-oxidants as opposed to other foodstuffs. Anti-oxidants delay the advent of ageing, activate fat burn, keep skin fresh, and have a stimulating effect. Several companies use cocoa as a primary ingredient in their beauty products.
