Europe is a leader in the stevia market after the Asia Pacific. The two regions, together account for more than three-fifths of the total global market share.

France holds a strong position in the European stevia market for the country approved the use of stevia sweeteners, particularly the Reb A strain, from 2009 onwards.

In Europe, several big brands like Coca-Cola have started reformulating existing products and manufacturing new ones upon seeing an increasing demand for stevia among consumers.Europe is dependent on imports from other countries to meet the growing stevia demand in the natural sweeteners industry as stevia leaves are not native to Europe. China, being the major producer of stevia, serves as the leading stevia supplier to Europe. The countries like Germany and France, with the biggest food industries, are the major consumers of natural sweeteners and, thus, emerge as a major destination for stevia exportation in Europe.

The increasing rates of obesity and type 2 diabetes have fuelled the demand for low-sugar or sugar-free sweeteners in the region. In the food and beverage sector, the demand for sports and energy drinks has increased, further influencing companies to manufacture them using zero-calorie sweeteners, like stevia. Also, the use of organic products is on the rise, thus, driving the industry further. Companies like Coca-Cola reformulated existing products like Sprite, catering to the demand of consumers to produce stevia-based products. Also, with the success of stevia in France the company launched several new products like Coca-Cola Life, Goba cola, and Activia Fat Free, which are stevia-based, thus, aiding the European natural sweeteners market.

Moreover, the increase in the demand for natural sweeteners in the pharmaceutical sector is emerging as a key factor, further propelling the industry forward. Natural sweeteners are used to manufacture toothpaste and health supplements.
