High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), also known as glucose-fructose is a sweetener made manufactured from corn starch processed by glucose isomerase to convert some of its glucose into fructose. The sweetener is widely used in food industry a replacement for sucrose. Production quotas of domestic sugar, import tariff on foreign sugar, and subsidies of U.S. corn are some of the factors responsible for increasing demand for HFCS. Moreover, raise in the price of sucrose compared to HFCS also contributes to high usage of HFCS. HFCS is used most commonly in soft drinks and is the primary ingredient in most brands of commercial pancake syrups.  

The High Fructose Corn Syrup market was valued at US$ 5.1 Billion in 2021 in terms of revenue, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.0% during the forecast period (2022 to 2030).

Drivers

The manufacturing process of HFCS is easier to handle and more cost-effective than table sugar. The U.S Food and Drug Administration has determined HFCS as a safe ingredient for food and beverage manufacturing. However, rise in consumption of low calorie foods and beverage items is one of the major factors restraining the growth of the market at present. Moreover, excess consumption of added sugar in any form, including HFCS, can pose several negative effects on human health such as obesity, which is another major factor responsible for the slowdown of the high fructose corn syrup market.
