DUBLIN, October 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
The "Dark Chocolate Market in the US 2017-2021" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
The report forecasts the dark chocolate market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 8.34% during the period 2017-2021.
The report, Dark Chocolate Market in the US 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is innovations in dark chocolates. Vendors are coming up with innovations in terms of chocolate-manufacturing processes to open new revenue streams for themselves and to compete better with their counterparts. Innovations have been brought by dark chocolate manufacturers to retain old consumers and attract new ones toward their product offerings. For instance, in 2017, Taza Chocolate reduced the bitterness of its dark chocolate offerings through the stone grinding process (which allows the manufacturer to create dark chocolate that tastes fruity rather than bitter).
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is the health benefits of dark chocolate. The health benefits of the consumption of dark chocolate drive the sales in the market. As per various researches, the high antioxidant content in dark chocolate helps in providing protection against disease-causing free radicals, while flavonoids present in these chocolates help in cancer prevention and improve heart health and cognitive ability. According to various studies, cocoa polyphenols in dark chocolate help in controlling cholesterol, while some studies validate that the antioxidant capacity of dark chocolate is higher than many superfoods.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is the new varieties of milk and white chocolates being launched in the US. Although the demand for dark chocolates is high among consumers in the US, many milk and white chocolate manufacturers are launching new varieties to expand their consumer bases. For instance, in 2017, Mars announced the launch of its M&M's white chocolate as an everyday product at select food, mass, convenience, and drugstores across the US. The a2 Milk Company launched a new chocolate-flavored milk variant at the Natural Products Expo West.
