Cold sweets were always fascinating, even in ancient times. In the first century, the Roman Emperor Nero ordered his servants to bring him snow from the side of the mountains, in order to cool his fruity drinks. We know that Alexander the Great enjoyed snow and ice flavored with honey and nectar. Marco Polo brought a recipe very similar to sorbet from the far east. In 1559 after the discovery of the reaction between ice and salt, the ice-cream as we all know it appears in Italy and since then, it started its journey in the world.
In 2016 the world economy saw a growth of only 2.2%, the slowest growth since the last recession is 2009. As a paradox to this slow growth, the ice-cream market has a rather robust growth. The most important element of this growth is the uptake in emerging countries like Brazil and China, where, thanks to the rise in incomes, this market represents about 2 fifths of world ice-cream market today. The United States, a former leader in ice-cream sales, had it’s sales fall as more and more people become aware of the link between sugar consumption and obesity. In 2016 ice-cream industry sales totaled 7.7 billion $, with a constant rise of 0.5% over the past 3 years. In 2016 the average sales per company were around 18 million $. A raise of about 12.8% is noticed for companies with employees that number between 20-99.
And although mature markets like France, Germany, and Japan are seeing fairly flat growth, there remains a huge consumer appetite to see new innovative ideas. The ice cream market is a hotbed of innovation and trends are emerging from one part of the world to inspire innovation in another, and that is the case with this new way of making ice cream as in Thailand.
According to one report, Asia is currently the biggest market of ice-cream followed by North America, Europe, and others. GERMANY, TURKEY, AND SPAIN ARE THE TOP CONTRIBUTORS TO GROWTH in Europe. Aside from the population growth, several reasons are what drive the global growth of ice-cream market, reasons like innovative flavors with added nutrients, an association of ice-cream with popular food and beverages such as milkshakes and smoothies and also bringing them to the vast public as an affordable premium desert.
Then there is competition creep, including the recent wave of artisanal brands that have captured consumers’ imagination—and money -in shops, online and in grocers’ freezer.Small companies have pinpointed what consumers’ didn’t necessarily know they wanted: ice cream made from quality ingredients that tout new, now ubiquitous, flavors like dulce de leche or salted caramel.
The ice cream market continues to feel the heat from consumers to provide better-for-you options, but the category is responding in a range of ways to meet this demand.
