Europe Fruit & Vegetable Ingredients Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Europe Fruit & Vegetable Ingredients Market according to our research experts:

Increasing Popularity of Fruit Ingredients in Functional Foods and Beverages

The growth in the consumption of ready-to-eat products with high nutritional value that are consistent in taste, save time, and include exotic fruit and vegetable ingredients is driving the market. A rise in the number of fitness enthusiasts and a growing consumer inclination toward a healthy lifestyle are expected to be the key growth drivers of the functional food and beverage market. People's increased participation in sports on a national and international level is expected to increase the number of athletes, which will accelerate growth throughout the functional beverages market forecast period.Functional beverage processing companies are introducing beverages with low calories and fats and adding fruit and vegetable ingredients and flavor additives to appeal to refined tastes, owing to the growing number of casual users of sports and energy drinks. This factor allows them to spend more on healthy foods, such as superfruits, than on artificial foods with flavors, colors, and preservatives, thereby increasing their expenditure levels. Some of the fruit ingredients, such as Goji berries, are tiny, red fruits packed with antioxidants and powerful medicinal properties. These berries are often sold powdered or dried. In addition, they are added to many supplements and juice blends, which propels the demand for beverages such as juices in the region.

The shift toward healthy eatables, driven by the rising adoption of vegan lifestyles and the growing realization of the crucial role of fruits and vegetables in disease prevention, is also accelerating market growth in the region. The companies are also focusing on launching ingredients that can be used in functional food and beverage products by partnering with key players to gain a competitive advantage and entice customers. For instance, in July 2021, Taiyo GmbH partnered with Asiros to produce high-fiber fruit powders that can be incorporated into functional beverages and foods that are popular among consumers on the market.
