The global cashew nut butter market size is being positively impacted by the high versatility of butter extracted from cashews, concludes Fortune Business Insights™ in its report titled “Cashew Nut Butter Market, 2021-2028”.

Cashew nuts are consumed as a snack globally. One of its derivatives is cashew nut butter, derived either from roasted or baked cashews. This butter is not only a great source of fibers but also contains antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. The nut has poly-unsaturated fatty acids, which help lower (LDL) low-density lipoproteins and increase the (HDL) high-density lipoproteins in the body. The butter has the nutritional capacity to provide around 12% of the daily fat requirement, along with 8% of daily saturated fat required by the human body. In the culinary industry, this butter is consumed as a bread spread, thickener, and additive to various shakes, soups, and sauces to enhance their flavor.

COVID-19 Impact

The cashew nut butter market growth has been impeded by the COVID-19 pandemic as cashew nuts are expensive and only grow in certain climatic conditions. Cashews are native to tropical climates and thrive even in high temperatures. The lockdown during the pandemic created significant blockages in the export of cashew nuts globally. The lack of cashew nut supplies amid COVID-19 has thus hindered the growth of this market.

Driving Factor

Growing Popularity of Cashew Nut among Working Professionals to Aid Expansion

The rising number of working professionals has necessitated the availability of ready-to-eat or quick-to-make foods worldwide. Consumers are looking for a quick and yet nutritious alternative for various other spreads available in the market. Cashew nut butter has risen up to the challenge and is quickly gaining momentum as it liked in general by people and is a healthy alternative to other snacks. Cashews are also proven to improve heart health, maintain weight, and prevent the development of chronic conditions, such as cancer. These valuable properties of cashews are increasing their demand among the working class, who are in constant need of nutrition. Furthermore, people with peanut allergies are preferring butter made from cashews as an alternative to peanut butter, which is opening another expansion avenue for this market.

However, despite their benefits, cashews are not a globally found ingredient and are usually exported by non-tropical countries. The export of these nuts makes the final product expensive and unaffordable for many. Also, global warming has destroyed certain tropical regions ideal for cashew nut production, which has become a major restraint in the growth of the cashew nut butter industry.
