Icing sugar is a finely ground sugar produced by grinding granulated sugar (table sugar) into a powdery form. It is also known as powdered sugar and confectioners’ sugar. Generally, it contains 3 to 5% of corn starch (TCP) or potato starch (anti-caking agent) to prevent the risk of clumping. It can also be prepared by grinding or crushing ordinary sugar in a coffee grinder or in mortar & pestle at home, despite it being majorly produced in a factory.

As icing sugar quickly dissolves in liquid, it is used by the food & beverages industries as an instant-dissolving sugar. In households, it is mainly used by home cooks for frosting and cake decorations. Many-a-time, it is lightly dusted over desserts, baked items and even on fruits. Furthermore, it is used for producing marshmallow, Marzipan, and other bakery items such as pastry and pies.

Regions including North America and Europe consume the maximum amount of bakery items on a daily basis. This fosters the growth of the icing sugar market. However, there is growth in awareness about health among the consumers; and hence, they focus on leading a healthy lifestyle. This is expected to restrict the growth of icing sugar market in the forthcoming years. Nevertheless, there is an increase in the demand for organic powdered sugar, which is produced from organic sugarcane and does not contain any herbicides, pesticides, or chemicals. This increase in demand is anticipated to boost the growth of the icing sugar market.
