Chocolate confectionery is an important and dynamic market, expected to be worth over €128 billion / $130 billion in global retail sales by the end of 2024, with volume growth of 2% CAGR over the next 5 years to 2027.*
Consumers have a specific attitude towards life which will determine the type of indulgence they choose. While there will always be a need for Intense Indulgence chocolate experiences, we expect consumers to increasingly have a soft health approach to life, increasing the Mindful Indulgence chocolate space. Meanwhile, Healthy Indulgence is definitely a trend to watch within the confectionery segment in the years to come.
