NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / April 8, 2021 / The global cocoa market is estimated to display steady growth prospects for the period of forecast between 2021 and 2031. This can be attributed to the widespread use of cocoa and its derivatives in the food & beverage and cosmetics& personal care industry. As per the recent Fact.MR market study, the use of cocoa in luxury chocolate production will remain key to lucrative long-term opportunities for growth. The market is expected to display strong recovery through 2021 as the covid-19 pandemic subsides, supported by changes in consumer spending.

According to a report by the International Cocoa Organization (ICCO), the global gross cocoa production rose by 2.5% in 2019-20. Increasing levels of population levels, particularly in urban centers, and increasing awareness about health benefits associated with cocoa consumption are increasing adoption rates around the world.

'The rising demand for cocoa in the pharmaceutical sector is expected to create niche growth opportunities. Cocoa beans are finding use as lubricants in a number of pharmaceutical formulations. In addition, research into cocoa constituents has revealed superior antimicrobial and physicochemical properties widening its applications in drug development. This trend will play an important role for the foreseeable future of the market,' says the FACT.MR analyst.
