Many of these brands have high advertising budgets and a number have been extended using limited edition flavours and new packaging. A somewhat small number of brands account for a relatively high level of confectionery sales. There are also a number of smaller companies in the industry, many of which target particular markets - such as premium confectionery. Growth will be strongest in the sugar confectionery sector, which will steadily increase its share of the market.
