Based on Product Type, Ice Cream Food Inclusion Market is segmented into Fruit & Nut, Chocolate, Confectionery, Flavoured Sugar & Caramel, Baked Products and others. Fruits & Nuts segment is accounted for the largest revenue market share in 2020. Nuts have always been a famous inclusion item. Butter pecan is a common ice cream flavor, as are rocky road flavors and the numerous almond-flavored ice creams. Pecans are the most common nut, followed by almonds, walnuts, and peanuts. The chocolate-coated almond is the most common nut inclusion, but chocolate-coated nuts come in a variety of types, including chocolate-coated cashews, hazelnuts in milk and dark chocolate, and chocolate-coated peanuts. Despite the fact that nut harvests in the United States have been relatively large in recent years, the increasing popularity of nuts around the world has resulted in higher prices for nuts in the United States. Some ice cream makers are changing the nuts used in their products. Since pecan prices are so high right now, manufacturers may experiment with using cashews as an alternative nut in some products. Confectionery segment is poised to grow with the fastest CAGR of 8.3% in the forecast period 2021-2026 owing to its rising adoption in ice cream. Cakes, Cookies, and brownies are all popular ingredients in ice cream. Frequently, bakery items must be altered to achieve the desired ice cream result. Many absorb moisture and soften as a result.

Ice Cream Food Inclusion Market Segment Analysis Drivers

Increasing Demand for Flavoured Foods:

The demand for items such as food inclusions has increased as the demand for processed foods with some form of value addition has increased. For example, Dairy Queen, an American fast food and soft serve ice cream chain, introduced a caramel cannonball blizzard in April 2018, which consists of caramel-coated caramel truffles, caramel topping, toffee pieces, and mixed with vanilla soft serve. Rising demand for wholesome and nutritious snacks that can be consumed on the go, such as cereal bars with nuts and fruits, is expected to be one of the main drivers in the growth of the ice cream food inclusion industry. A shift in consumer food consumption patterns, shifts in dietary patterns, and an increase in demand for and popularity of creative recipes are some of the factors driving the food inclusions market. A rise in demand for food inclusions has been driven by factors such as evolving lifestyles, growing disposable income, and rising demand for convenience snacks and confectionaries.

Fruit and nut-based products are becoming increasingly popular owing to their vibrant texture, color, appearance, enhanced flavor, and organoleptic properties. Owing to their organoleptic and nutritional properties, nuts-based food inclusions in bakery and confectionary products are in high demand.

Ice Cream Food Inclusion Market Segment Analysis Challenges

Effects of Synthetic Colors:

The adverse effects of synthetic food colors along with FDA regulations on private labels are two factors that constrain the ice cream food inclusion market's development. Furthermore, fluctuations in the price of cocoa, as well as quality standards, are major market constraints. As people strive for a healthy lifestyle, the market for low-calorie foods is expected to rise. This pattern could stifle the market's expansion. Manufacturers, on the other hand, are having difficulty producing high-quality edible nuts in large quantities. The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) is aggressively raising the bar of quality standards to meet the safety demand from customers in order to address safety concerns posed by pathogens such as e-coli, aflatoxin, and salmonella. The severity of the problem can be seen in the rising number of edible nut batches being rejected in Europe for failing to meet GFSI quality standards. However, such patterns can pose a threat to market participants.
