Rising Stevia Sweetener Production in China

As a natural kind of high intensity sweetener (HIS), the usage of stevia sweetener has been approved by more and more countries and it has been becoming more and more popular in overseas market, according to CCM’s Sweeterner China News.

The booming domestic production is mainly driven by the rising demand from foreign countries. Nowadays, foreigners prefer natural food additives to artificial ones. The US, Japan and South Korea are the most important stevia sweetener markets in the world. China's stevia sweetener is mainly exported to neighboring countries and North America in the past three years. Malaysia, the US, Mexico, South Korea and Japan are the most important export destinations of China's stevia sweetener.

China is the largest stevia sweetener supplier in the world, and around 80% of its total output of stevia sweetener is sold to overseas market. From 2006 to 2010, the capacity of stevia sweetener has increased from 5,160t/a to 13,475t/a with a CAGR of 27.12%.

China's stevia sweetener production is mainly concentrated in Jiangxi Province and Shandong Province. There are mainly 25 active stevia sweetener producers in China by now. PureCircle (Jiangxi) Co., Ltd. is the biggest one, whose capacity and output reached 4,000t/a and 1,400 tonnes in 2010, accounting for 29.68% and 35.80% of the total domestic capacity and output of stevia sweetener respectively.
