Industrial sugar is an essential part of the processed food industry and this refined sugar is extensively utilized as a sweetening agent for several confectionery items and dessert food & beverage products. Moreover, the incorporation of industrially produced sugar also enables the lowering of the freezing point of any perishable, thus allowing it to retain its taste and texture for a longer period of time.

Restrained Sugar Consumption amid COVID to Hinder Market Growth
The industrial sugar market growth is likely to get obstructed amid the COVID-19 pandemic as the disease is known to take an aggravated form in people with comorbidities, such as diabetes and obesity. The excessive intake of sugary foods and beverages, especially in urban areas, has escalated the prevalence of such lifestyle-based conditions. The outbreak of the coronavirus worsened the effects of these disorders and health authorities are now urging people to reduce their sugar consumption. For example, in September 2020, a federal committee in the US recommended that Americans should lower their industrial sugar consumption from the current guideline of 10% to 6%, in an attempt to limit the incidence of obesity among the populace. The sudden resurgence of health consciousness and growing awareness about the harmful effects of refined sugar during the pandemic are anticipated to restrict the growth of this market.
High Consumption of Processed Sugar to Feed Market Growth in North America
Among regions, North America is expected to dominate the industrial sugar market share owing to the extensive consumption of processed sugar products in the US and Canada. Consumers in these two countries are known for their taste of foods and beverages with refined sugar, which has created immense opportunities for market players.
The market in Brazil will be mainly driven by the rising sugar production in Brazil, which produces nearly 20% of sugar in the world. In Asia Pacific, the expanding cultivation of sugarcane, which is the main source of industrial sugar in India and China, will accelerate the growth of the regional market.

With the demand for industrial sugar widening steadily, key market players are also entering into exciting ventures with regional companies to establish their foothold in emerging economies.
