One of the key factors behind the high demand for molasses is the increasing consumption of convenience food and ready-to-eat meals. The bakery industry is expanding at a rapid pace worldwide and this is also benefiting the molasses market. This is because various food applications make use of molasses as stabilizing agents. Another important factor aiding the growth of the global molasses market is the production rate of the sources of molasses such as sugarbeet and sugarcane. The increased use in cosmetics, industrial applications, and pharmaceutical sector will ensure that the molasses market will witness high growth in the future years.

With increasing prices of sugar, manufacturers of food products have shifted from making use of sugar to molasses. In addition to this, molasses are being used in the bakery sector on account of their ability to give a darker shade two products as compared to normal sugar.

Unsuitable Climatic Conditions to Affect Production of Sugarcane and Subsequently Molasses Market

One of the key factors restricting the growth of the global molasses market is unsuitable climatic conditions which directly affect the sales of cane molasses. Molasses are witnessing decreased demand in feed applications and this is also a challenge for the market. One of the key application sectors of molasses is animal feed. However, with increasing availability of cheaper alternatives, the demand for molasses is threatened in the animal feed sector. Unfavourable climatic conditions in Asia Pacific is also expected to affect the production of sugarcane which in turn will negatively impact the molasses market.
