Impact Analysis of COVID-19 on the Allulose Market

Major industries such as food and beverage faced unexpected challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. Government-imposed restrictions, such as lockdowns, production shutdowns, travel bans, and border restrictions, have disrupted the global supply chain. This resulted in a scarcity of raw materials and labor, hampering the production of various small-scale and large-scale food and beverage manufacturing. However, the COVID-19 pandemic changed health and wellness trends dramatically. People have become more concerned about their health and immunity and have begun to consume healthier foods and beverages. To reduce the potential health risks associated with sugar, they are replacing sugar-dense products with low-calorie alternatives. Allulose has gained popularity among health-conscious consumers as it is a low-intensity sweetener. This factor created significant opportunities for the key players operating in the global market. Furthermore, the market is expanding as manufacturers are permitted to operate at full capacity and the population across several countries is fully vaccinated.

Major companies operating in the market implemented contingency plans to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the first half of 2020. According to the Annual Food & Health Survey from the International Food Information Council, four out of five consumers say that the coronavirus pandemic has changed their food habits, driving them to shop, cook, and eat healthily.

Products free of harsh chemicals, petrochemicals, and preservatives have gained popularity in recent years. The rise in consumer demand for organic food products, primarily due to an increase in health consciousness, has resulted in significant demand for organic allulose.


The type of segment is further classified into powder, liquid, and crystal. Among these, the powder sub-segment accounted for a dominant market share in 2021.
