Glucose and Fructose Market Trends

Distinguished Positioning of Products Offering Increased Shelf Life in Food Products to Boost Sales: With the view of keeping food products appealing and fresh for a longer time, producers of beverages, confectionery, and fresh baking products are focusing on finding natural ways to keep their portfolios fresh. As artificial preservatives today fail to meet the expectations of modern consumers, fructose sourced from natural ingredients play an essential part in the preservation process. Fructose is capable of preserving food and providing safety standards to different food products.

Fructose hydrolyzes in the same way as sucrose, and hence, helps in providing longer shelf life to many food products. Glucose is also known to bind water, and with less water activity, growth of microorganisms is hindered, providing increased shelf-life to products such as jams and marmalade.

  • According to the Food & Health Survey 2017, more than 70% of consumers check expiry dates at supermarkets. This shows that, while consumers value other trends, shelf life is also one of the key drivers of purchasing behavior.

Increased Application of Glucose and Fructose in Functional Food and Beverages: Rise in health conscious consumers has propelled the growth of functional food and beverages. Consumers are increasingly shifting from sugary soft drinks to healthier alternatives. Functional food and beverages are also known to have enhanced taste and flavor with nutritious properties for satisfying health-conscious consumers. Fructose and glucose are increasingly been used as an energy source for diabetic patients because they aid glycemic control. They are used as a flavor enhancer for functional beverages such as high fiber drinks, RTD teas, enhanced fruit drinks, and soy beverages for offering sweet taste with reduced calories

Thus, the application of fructose and glucose in enhancing the flavor profile as well as offering health benefits in functional food and beverages is expected to steer the growth of the glucose and fructose market. Fructose and glucose in functional food is expected to witness 1.7X value growth over the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact on Glucose and Fructose Market

The world is facing an unprecedented threat from the COVID-19 pandemic, with adverse effects on the world economy. The sugar substitute industry is also expected to face the aftermath of the pandemic. There has been a widening demand-supply gap in the alternative sweeteners market due to disruptions of supply chains. The functioning of food and beverage processing plants with less workforce and closure of manufacturing facilities across various countries has led to a fall in the demand for alternative sweeteners.

On the demand side, consumers are increasingly preferring food products that have health benefits and are made without sugar, encouraging demand for calorie-free and less harmful fructose and glucose. Thus, the impact of the pandemic is expected to be low to medium in the glucose and fructose market in the near term.
