    Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

    The Industrial Chocolate Production industry is moderately concentrated, with the top four players accounting for about 51.9% of revenue in 2016. Aside from the two large players in the market, Barry Callebaut and Blommer Chocolate Company, there are a number of smaller enterprises making specialty artisan chocolates for the gourmet market. The industry has become more concentrated over the past five years, driven in part by the exit of unprofitable companies during periods of plummeting cocoa prices. In addition, there has been moderate consolidation by the industry's largest players, as these attempt to take advantage of economies of scale in production to boost profit. IBISWorld expects the industry to remain moderately concentrated through 2021.
