Top 5 Vendors in the Global Functional Chewing Gum Market – Technavio


LONDON–()–Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global functional chewing gum market report from 2017-2021. This market research report also lists nine other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global functional chewing gum market is moderately competitive because of the presence of established players in the market. As the preferences of customers change in terms of taste and ingredients, manufacturers tend to offer products that are in sync with evolved consumer demands. Existing manufacturers, of late, are investing in products that are made with healthy ingredients. The existing vendors are competing against each other in terms of innovation, new product development, price, marketing activities, and others.

According to Manjunath Reddy, a lead analyst at Technavio for food research, “The increasing demand for chewing gums with added vitamins and energy supplements is driving the sales of functional chewing gums. The ingredients of a chewing gum easily get absorbed in the buccal cavity of the mouth. Therefore, the consumption of functional chewing gums helps in rapid absorption of vitamins and minerals to the human body. Considering this, manufacturers are incorporating natural energy sources such as guarana in chewing gums. The number of products incorporated with vitamins and energy supplements is also increasing.”
