Cocoa is cultivated primarily in countries located in around the equatorial belt and rainforests owing to favorable climatic conditions. Cocoa is obtained from the fatty bean of the Theobroma tree. Cocoa beans are dried and fermented before being processed to extract butter, oil, powder, and liquor along with other residual solids. Cocoa is extracted from three common plants including forastero, criollo, and trinitario. Forastero is the most sold type of plant owing to best quality of chocolate. Cocoa is categorized into natural cocoa and Dutch cocoa. Natural cocoa is natural powder from roasted cocoa beans, and is acidic and bitter with a very strong and concentrated chocolate flavor. Dutch process cocoa powder is treated with an alkalizing agent to modify its color and give it a milder taste compared to natural cocoa. It forms the basis for much of modern chocolate, and is mostly used in ice creams, hot cocoa, and for baking. Demand for cocoa, in all forms, has been increasing significantly since the last few years.

Revenue contribution from the Western Europe cocoa market to the global cocoa market is likely to remain comparatively high, and is expected to remain the dominant regional market over the forecast period. North America will also be a lucrative region for sales of cocoa products, accounting for over X.X % of global revenues throughout the projection period. In terms of CAGR, the Europe cocoa market is estimated to register the highest value CAGR, with North America in second place. By the end of 2027, conventional cocoa products derived from Dutch processing techniques will dominate other segments to the global market.
