Soaring Chocolate Consumption to Scale up the Demand for Interesterified Fats Market, Finds Fact.MR


by Team Fact.MR

Currently, the chocolate industry accounts for a sizeable demand for interesterified fats. However, Fact.MR projects that this is likely to scale up further in the coming years owing to the replacement of cocoa butter with interesterified fats. Chocolate industry uses high volumes of cocoa butter, however, with the price escalation of cocoa butter, demand for cocoa butter alternatives including interesterified fats are also witnessing a significant rise. Interesterified fats can be procured at almost half the price of cocoa butter and the substitution of the latter with the former is not only minimizing the cost of chocolate production but is also replenishing the demand-supply gap of cocoa butter.

Interesterified fats have a lower composition of trans fats which enhances its applicability in confectionery as a suitable substitute to cocoa butters. On this backdrop, Fact.MR in its newest report estimates that the global interesterified fats market will witness an absolute dollar opportunity of over US$ 500 Mn during 2019 - 2029.
