The Middle East & Africa The sugar confectionery market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period due to an expanding retail sector, which would bode well for the demand for sugar confectionery products in the region. Confectionery preferences frequently differ due to geographical reasons, regulatory norms, and other factors such as economy, taste, and consumer preference. A wide range of confectionery products are marketed through various retail channels such as hypermarkets, supermarkets, convenience stores, e-commerce retailers, pharmacy stores, and others. These stores act as MEA marketing tools, assisting in building an impressive brand image and raising brand exposure. Of these, sales through convenience stores are the highest, and the future market growth is expected to be driven by e-commerce sales. This is due to the rapid adoption of online purchasing by consumers. According to the research report, "Middle East & Africa Sugar Confectionery Market Outlook, 2027," by Bonafide Research, it is projected to grow at a steady CAGR of 6.71% over the forecast period ending in 2027. Together, chewy and hard-boiled sugar candies constitute over 50% of the market share. The major trend in the region is the clean label claim. People are more influenced by such labels claiming the products to be all-natural or being preservative-free. Sugar-free confectionery is expected to drive future market trends in the MEA region. Lozenges also help soothe and lubricate the throat tissues affected by influenza or the common cold. The increasing number of consumers who contract bacterial or viral infections in the country has led to the increased consumption of lozenges over the past few years, thereby driving the growth of this market segment. Additionally, the availability of fruit-flavoured pastilles containing ingredients such as zinc, vitamin C, and honey has become popular among health-conscious consumers focusing on preventive health care, which has become paramount considering the COVID-19 pandemic. This factor is projected to boost the market's growth during the forecast period.

Sugar is the key ingredient responsible for the prevalence of obesity and diabetes, making this the primary restraint on the market. Volatile prices of sugar and government regulation of sugar content monitoring also restrict further growth. During the pandemic, the import of food and beverages drastically reduced due to lockdowns and demand and supply inadequacy. Further, as sugar confectionery products do not fall under essential commodities, they were adversely affected due to decreased purchases by consumers. However, during the forecast period, the market's growth is primarily attributed to the growing demand for premium confectionery with new and innovative flavours offered in attractive packaging as a gift item for festivals and other occasions. Due to international companies setting up factories in the country and the emergence of local small-scale organizations, there is an awareness of an expanding market and demand for standard and luxury chocolate that serves the gifting purpose and personal/individual consumption. While the key players enjoyed a dominant presence over the study period, local and newer players have been giving competition by focusing on pricing, the quality of products, and the innovation of products catering to consumer tastes and preferences as well as healthier alternatives to conventional confectionery products. The sugar confectionery in the Middle East & Africa region is dominated by the adult age group segment, which held a share of nearly 48% in the year 2021. In the recent past, there has been an increase in the number of sugar-free variants of gums, chews, and candies. This is seen as an attempt by the manufacturers to gain more consumers from the geriatric age group segment. Through the forecasted period, the geriatric age group segment is expected to grow at an anticipated CAGR of 6.88%.
