Globalization in the Food Consumption Pattern to Result in Growth in Emerging Countries
In developing countries, consumers are looking for fine dining and restaurant-like experience at their homes. This factor is driving the market growth of premium products of sauces & seasonings, by evoking a sense of flavor authenticity. However, recently, the market witnessed a shift in consumer preference for convenience. This shift can be attributed to several factors, which include, urbanization, growing population of working-women, and increasing household incomes. This market holds a great potential for growth among processed food manufacturers and the food flavor suppliers.
Growing Consumer Demand for Natural Flavors Likely to Hurdle Flavor Market Growth
An increasing number of health-conscious consumers are looking for options to avoid additives, like flavor enhancers (monosodium glutamate), preservatives, artificial colors, etc. Companies are facing issues, due to the high costs associated with raw materials required for natural additives, and the energy costs for processing and transportation. This factor is proving to be a challenge to maintain the expected texture, flavor, shelf-life, and mouth-feel. Besides, in developing economies of APAC, there are issues with the right infrastructure, transportation, cold chain storage, and reliable power supplies. Ultimately, these issues will block the flavor market growth in Asia Pacific region.
Based on type, the Asia-Pacific food flavor industry can be categorized into natural, synthetic, and natural identical flavorings. In 2015, the natural flavor segment accounted for around 35% of the market share. Moreover, there has been a constant decrease in demand for the artificial food flavors, since past several years.
In 2017, the natural extracts segment is expected to have the second largest market revenue, as the demand for natural extracts is growing. The consumption rate of food flavor dominates the beverage and dairy industries.
Geographically, China and Japan are the largest consumers of flavor & enhancer in the APAC region. Moreover, Indonesia, Vietnam, and India are expected to be the top markets during the forecast period.
