Market Dynamics:

Demand for natural and clean label products is increasing.

The demand for food with natural components and clean labeling is increasing in practically all regions, owing to rising health consciousness, increased consumer spending power, and an increase in food adulteration incidents. As a result, manufacturers are concentrating on extending their natural food and beverage portfolio. Clean-label items are those that are organic, natural, non-GMO, and minimally processed. Increasing consumer health consciousness increases demand for natural and clean-label products, which in turn drives demand for Natural Food Colors and flavors. Consumers are gravitating toward clean-label products as they become more aware of the detrimental impacts of non-synthetic components. This will encourage people to use clean-label items and diets.

High prices and a scarcity of basic materials

Crops provide several natural food and flavoring components. The scarcity of such raw materials is a major factor driving up the prices of ingredients derived from them. Farmers are implementing innovative practices, such as precision farming, to enhance crop productivity and source components. The availability of raw materials for natural food ingredients varies seasonally. Due to the high heat, agricultural productivity in eastern Australia and the Midwest of the United States has decreased significantly. Thus, low raw material availability is expected to be one of the primary reasons driving up ingredient prices, limiting the market growth.

Over the projection period, North America is expected to have tremendous growth. Due to the region's high population and purchasing power, people are looking for a variety of comfort and functional foods. The shift in population consumption habits as a result of increased awareness about healthy food and beverages is also raising demand for Natural Food Colors and tastes ingredients. This has resulted in an increase in the desire for natural foods, natural colors, and natural flavors. The millennial generation is rising demand for clean label food and beverages, which is boosting the Natural Food Colors and tastes industry.
