Abstract:

Sustained demand for confectioneries helped this industry achieve a swift recovery from the recession, even while volatile input prices at the manufacturing level dampened profit margins. Operators in the Confectionery Wholesaling industry benefited from rapidly rising demand for premium products such as dark chocolate, which have grown in importance as increased health consciousness among consumers cuts into sales of traditional candies. This trend is expected to continue in the next five years, with wholesalers increasingly relying on sales of high-margin chocolates and candies, which are moving into the mainstream from the shelves of niche specialty shops. However, consolidation will also increase, expanding the market share of the industry's largest players but posing challenges for small, independent operators.

Operators in the this industry primarily wholesale a range of chocolate and nonchocolate candy, in addition to a range of savory snacks, such as nuts and chips. Industry firms sell these products to supermarkets, specialty confectionery retail outlets, convenience stores and vending machine operators.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
