The global alternative sweeteners market is expected to exhibit a strong 5.2% CAGR over the forecast period from 2019 to 2024, according to the latest research report from Market Research Future (MRFR). The global alternative sweeteners market is primarily driven by the growing demand for sweeteners that do not contribute to the glycemic index of the diet and is likely to exhibit robust growth over the forecast period due to the growing demand from all over the world. MRFR's new report provides a comprehensive overview of the global alternative sweeteners market by detailing the impact of various major drivers and restraints on the market. The key economic factors affecting the global alternative sweeteners market are profiled in the report.
Alternative sweeteners are sweeteners made from unconventional sources such as the stevia plant, as well as through synthetic processes. Alternative sweeteners are characterized by having a lower glycemic load than conventional sugar, which allows consumers to eat without worrying about the adverse consequences of excessive sugar consumption. The sweetness in alternative sweeteners is provided by chemicals that do not have the same effect on the human body as conventional sugar, which is most fructose and glucose. Other sugar molecules, especially ones that are not digested inside the body or comprise a lower glycemic load, are used in alternative sweeteners market . Substances such as stevia are not absorbed at all in the body, but still provide sweetness in terms of taste.
Such substances are finding increasing demand across the world due to the increasing awareness about the adverse effects of excessive sugar consumption. Sugar consumption is strongly linked to the development of obesity, diabetes, heart conditions, and others, including neurodegenerative diseases and arthritis. This has led to an increasing demand for sweeteners that provide the sweetness of sugar without providing any of the adverse health effects. This has been a major driver for the global alternative sweeteners market. Growing commercialization of alternative sweeteners and their increasing availability in conventional distribution channels such as supermarkets is also likely to be a major driver for the global alternative sweeteners market over the forecast period.
The global alternative sweeteners market is segmented on the basis of product type, application, and region.

The synthetic alternative sweeteners segment is further sub-segmented into aspartame, acesulfame-K, sucralose, saccharin, and others. The natural segment includes stevia, sorbitol, xylitol, erythritol, and others.
By application, the global alternative sweeteners market is segmented into food and beverages, pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals, animal feed, and others. The food and beverage segment is further sub-segmented into bakery and confectionery products, beverages, sweet and savory snacks, dairy and frozen desserts, and others.
