Consumers want small premium items and high-quality products.

 

Restraining Factors

The cocoa and chocolate markets are expanding at a rapid pace. As a result, the shortage of cocoa beans will stymie future growth in the cocoa and chocolate markets. Since chocolate contains saturated fats and has negative health effects, consumer interest is shifting to other alternatives, such as snacks, limiting the growth of the chocolate market in South Korea.
