Industry Definition and Segmentation

Stevia is a replacement for sugar and a natural sweetener extracted from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant. It's around 100- 300 times sweeter than table sugar, yet it's free of carbs, calories, and chemical additives. As the human body does not metabolise the glycosides in stevia, it has no calories as a non-nutritive sweetener. As a replacement for sugar, it is utilised in sugar- and calorie-reduced food and beverage products. Only a pinch of its powder is equivalent to one teaspoon of table sugar. The global stevia industry report comprises segments by product form (powder, liquid, and leaf form), application (bakery, dairy food products, beverages, confectioneries, dietary supplements, and others), and region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, and South America). The North American area holds a significant share in the market. At the same time, the Asia Pacific is witnessing significant demand.

Category Management Studies

Stevia is extracted from dried stevia plant leaves around thirty times sweeter than sugar. The leaves are steeped in boiling water to begin the extraction process. It is somewhat like the brewing process but on a much grander scale. The stevia leaves are removed after a timeframe, and the 'tea' is filtered in several ways. Afterwards, the purified 'tea' is run through an ion-exchange chromatography. It's a tube with a porous substance that traps the decoction's steviol glycosides with an electrical charge while allowing the remainder to flow through. It's like a sieve, where the stuff you want can't go through while the rest is drained away. The sought-after steviol glycosides have been caught in the filter. The sieve is cleaned with pure alcohol to get access to them. The steviol glycosides are then washed with alcohol once the electric charge has released its grasp on them. A membrane filter may separate a lot, but distillation is required to extract the residual alcohol. After distillation, the syrup sweetened with steviol glycosides is left. The syrup is passed through activated carbon to remove the yellow colour cast. After that, it's squeezed to extract a steviol glycoside solution, which is then filtered a final time to eliminate any remaining particles. Finally, the steviol glycoside solution is sprayed into a tank filled with hot air under high pressure. When the finely separated droplets come into contact with heated air, the rest of the fluid evaporates, leaving steviol glycoside crystals to fall like snow.

Substantial Demand from Dairy Beverage Manufacturers is Further Driving the Global Procurement of Stevia

The increasing shift towards stevia as a critical ingredient in dairy beverages and the sports nutrition sector primarily drives the industry's growth. To control the rate of obesity and other health issues in the younger population, sugar is being replaced by natural sweeteners like stevia, thus resulting in increased sales. Other products like Snacks, cereals and bakery, Supplements and oral care, confectionery, among others, are boosting the market demand.

The regional markets for the industry can be divided into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific.
