Chocolate is also considered as functional foods and perceived as a stress-relieving eatable with high nutritional value. The consumption of dark chocolate to prevent cardiac diseases and other diseases is increasing among people across the globe.

The global chocolate market faces challenges in the form of shortage in the availability of cocoa and fluctuating prices of the raw materials required for the production of chocolates. The unstable supply of cocoa is a major challenge, as there is a heavy reliance on West African countries for the production of cocoa. Dependence on a few countries for the production of cocoa is leading to an increase in the price of cocoa, and subsequently the price of chocolates. 

However, many mergers and acquisitions are predicted in the chocolate industry, which is expected to boost sales. Alteration in chocolate compositions by manufacturers will further lead to a sustained demand for chocolates. The key manufacturers of chocolate studied in the report are: Nestle, Hershey and Barry Callebaut, and Lindt & Sprungli. 

The global chocolate market is segmented on the basis of type and region. On the basis of type, the global chocolate market is categorized into milk chocolate, white chocolate, and dark chocolate. On the basis of geography, the market is segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Rest of the World.
