Licorice-based food consumption has enjoyed the high ground across the West since several decades. This surging demand is backed by a history of perceived medical benefits, specifically boosting antiviral and antimicrobial resistance.

DUBAI / ACCESSWIRE / July 2, 2020 / Future Market Insights: The global licorice candy market is anticipated to enjoy a steady growth trajectory, surpassing a value of US$ 250 Mn by the end of 2020. The market is expected to gain an edge due to extensive usage amongst the medical fraternity due to licorice's holistic health benefits. Consisting of over 300 compounds, licorice possesses antimicrobial and antiviral properties. In addition, it is highly useful in treating conditions such as tooth decay, eczema or sore throat. Furthermore, licorice roots are also known to soothe gastrointestinal problems and clean respiratory systems.

Based on the aforementioned factors, the licorice market is set for healthy growth in the years to come. Owing to its antiviral properties, licorice candy consumption has significantly accelerated during the coronavirus pandemic. Market players are increasingly seeking to promote licorice candies as premium products to change consumer perceptions and garner more revenue. For instance, Gimbal's All Natural Licorice Scottie Dogs, made from purse anise and licorice represents a premium market.

"Long-term projections about the licorice candy market suggest a year-on-year growth exceeding 5% throughout the upcoming decade. Projections indicate that the demand for licorice candies is not expected to decelerate soon, providing market vendors to burgeon their investments in designing more licorice enhanced products," infers a leading FMI analyst.

Anticipated Impact of COVID-19

The coronavirus pandemic has generated major shockwaves across various industries. Production cycles are operating at reduced capacity due to the imposition of nationwide lockdowns to enforce social distancing. This has caused disruptions in the licorice candy market as well. Suppliers are finding it difficult to procure raw materials due to logistical disruptions, causing a dip in production. However, this trough is slowly eroding as the demand for licorice candies is flying high due to the perceived antiviral resistance properties it provides.

According to clinical studies, licorice is rich in over 20 triterpenoids and nearly 300 flavonoids. Two of these triterpenoids have antiviral properties as they inhibit viral gene expression and replication. Therefore, immense possibilities exist for manufacturers to produce more licorice candies. Moreover, the overall antimicrobial properties within licorice will only accelerate consumption in the years to come, keeping the market afloat.
