Although demand for organic dark chocolate is growing at a robust clip, conventional dark chocolates continue to account for the leading revenue share of the market. Organic variants are relatively expensive than conventional dark chocolates, and their sales are currently limited to demographics with high disposable income.

However, the pervasive, cross-industry ‘health and ‘wellness’ trend is impacting the dark chocolate landscape as well, as demand for organic dark chocolate witnesses an increase. The report projects global sales of organic dark chocolate to surpass US$ 31 Bn by the end of 2026.

According to the report, dark chocolates sold through modern trade and specialty stores collectively accounted for nearly US$ 24 Bn in revenues in 2017. Modern trade accounts for the highest revenue share of the market, and the trend is likely to continue during the assessment period. In addition to modern trade and specialty stores, dark chocolate sales are also growing through online channels.

Modern trade outlets and specialty stores are usually limited in suburban and tier II cities, and online retailers have filled the demand-supply gap in these markets.  The report projects that sales of dark chocolate through online channels will increase at a healthy rate during the assessment period.
