Cotton Candy Market:

Executive Summary

Cotton candy is a type of soft candy similar in texture to cotton and is spun out of sugar using a countertop machine. The candy is made by heating sugar till it turns into liquid, spinning it through tiny holes, and finally allowing the sugar to quickly cool and re-solidify into thin strands, giving it a fluffy cotton-like appearance and texture.

Also known as candy floss or fairy floss, it is available in a wide variety of flavours such as strawberry, sweet orange, banana, pineapple, mint, etc, and is hugely popular among kids and adults as well, for its nostalgic associations. Cotton candy, earlier available only seasonally at fairs carnivals and circuses, is now easily available throughout the year at theme parks, grocery chains, malls and multiplexes.
