Report Overview

The global glucose syrup market size was valued at USD 3.3 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to expand at a healthy CAGR over the forecast period. Escalating demand for convenience food and growing usage of glucose syrup in baked food items like candies are some of the factors propelling the market growth.

Nontoxicity, anti-crystal, anti-freezing humectant (an element that retains moisture and maintains freshness), and preservative properties are driving the demand for glucose syrup. The application of glucose syrup as a thickener is increasing apart from a sweetener. Additionally, glucose syrup varnishes a food-grade by giving a glaze to it, thereby increasing the organoleptic value of the grade.

Moreover, the strength of private label brands, growing need to curtail costs, and increasing investments by the industries are expected to fuel the revenue of the major players in the dextrose syrup market. For instance, in 2017, Archer Daniels Midland Co. (ADM) invested USD 129.00 million in research and development activities. However, adverse effects due to the heavy intake of glucose syrup are hurting the market growth. Additionally, public food systems, diversification of sugar over inefficient rationing, and falling cost due to market fragmentation are challenging the market.

During fermentation, grapes accumulate sugar in the form of glucose and fructose. Natural glucose tastes less sweet than fructose in wine. Hence, to increase the sweetening effect, dextrose syrup is used in various wines. During the time of fermentation, the dextrose syrup is added, and stirring speed is controlled that provides a light pinkish color to the wine, thereby making it look attractive. This is one of the major reasons for the use of dextrose syrup during the fermentation of wine.
