According to the "In-depth Market Research and Investment Strategy Recommendation Report on the Stevia Extract Industry for 2021-2025" released by the Xinsijie Industry Research Center, since 2014, stevia extract has been ranked No. 1 in the export volume of plant extracts in my country. One.
In 2019, the export value of plant extracts in my country increased slightly by 0.2%. Among them, the export value of stevia extract increased by 3.8%, which was a relatively rapid growth. Its export value accounted for 11.4% of the total export value of plant extracts. . In 2020, affected by factors such as the new crown epidemic and the depreciation of the U.S. dollar, the export unit price of my country's plant extracts has fallen sharply, which is not conducive to the development of the stevia extract export market.
China is a major producer and exporter of stevia extracts. The industry's deep processing capacity is insufficient
Stevia extract, also known as stevioside, stevioside, and steviol glycoside, is a glycoside extracted from the plant Stevia. Stevia extract has the advantages of high sweetness and low calories. It will not interfere with insulin and affect blood sugar, cause no allergies, and has no side effects. It can be eaten by diabetic patients, people with allergies, obese patients, children, pregnant women, etc. Commonly used sweeteners can be widely used in the fields of food, beverage, pharmaceutical processing and cosmetics production.
Stevia is native to South America and grows in a warm and humid environment. It was introduced to China in the 1970s. At this stage, it is grown in Shandong, Hebei, Shaanxi, Anhui, Hunan, Jiangsu, Fujian, Yunnan and other places in my country. Provide raw materials for the development of stevia extract industry in China. However, stevia in my country has problems in breeding and mechanized planting, and the cost is high and the quality is low. With the continuous improvement of the market's requirements for the quality of sweetener products, the selection of raw materials for the production of stevia extracts has become increasingly strict, and the stevia industry urgently needs to change its production methods.
The plant extract industry in my country is developing rapidly. As a kind of plant extract, the scale of the industry continues to expand. At this stage, my country is one of the major stevia extract producers in the world. Stevia extract is approved for use in many countries around the world. In addition to supplying domestic market demand, my country's stevia extract is also exported to overseas markets in large quantities. The United States, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Malaysia and other countries are the main export destinations. In 2019, affected by the Sino-US trade friction, the growth rate of my country's stevia extract export slowed down.
There are also disadvantages in the development of stevia extract industry in my country. The stevia extract exported from my country to Malaysia will be further processed again and then distributed to all parts of the world. From this point of view, the development of my country's stevia extract industry is still in the initial stage of raw material extraction, and the deep processing capacity is insufficient. The preliminary processed products are low in technical content and product added value, which is not conducive to the improvement of core competitiveness and profitability of enterprises.
Industry analysts in New Thinking said that from the perspective of the stevia extract industry chain, the upstream raw material stevia supply field is insufficiently mechanized and standardized, and cannot provide high-quality raw materials for the midstream stevia extract industry; midstream stevia extract In the production field, the industry has insufficient refinement development and weak deep processing capabilities. The products are mainly preliminary processed products and lack core competitiveness. In general, although my country is a major producer and exporter of stevia extracts, its competitiveness in the international market is relatively weak, and there is more room for improvement in the future.
