Need a report that reflects how COVID-19 has impacted this market and its growth?
The global specialty food ingredients market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.30% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the market growth in the initial few months of lockdowns. Even with the rising demand for specialty ingredients, key players and organizations across the globe reported their inability to battle logistical concerns. However, the market has been recovering, making the impact marginal over the past few months. The food & beverage sector continued to combat new daily challenges with significant supply chain disruption. Furthermore, the pandemic also resulted in the generation of opportunities for many private/local players to emerge in the market to cater to the inflated demand for food products, which, in turn, benefitted the ingredient manufacturer.
Over the medium term, the industry for specialty food ingredients essentially thrives on the wider technological and functional benefits that these ingredients confer in terms of high quality, safety, affordability, nutrition, and deliciousness of processed food products.
Moreover, the preference for certain food products is now core to some consumers’ identities, especially in developed economies, which drives the demand for specialty food ingredients. There is a strong correlation between the specialty food ingredient market and the processed food market, with the former conferring functional benefits and customized value-addition per the end-user applications. The globally recognized specialty food ingredient manufacturing companies utilize smart technology or intellectual property to develop innovative ingredients and solutions. However, new product development is a highly capital-intensive process.

Key Market Trends
Growing Demand for Natural & Label-Friendly Food Colorants
With an increasing preference for clean label products, the demand for natural colorants is expected to increase exponentially during the forecast period. Although natural colors are safer, they have a few fictional issues, like consistency. This production of such colors involves high production costs and a lack of raw material availability. Natural colorants have varied applications in functional foods. Food colors find application in many processed foods, including candies, snack foods, margarine, cheese, soft drinks, jams/jellies, gelatins, pudding, and pie fillings. The industry's primary constraints are the high production cost, chemical instability due to fluctuating temperature/pH conditions, and increased regulations. Paprika is a natural food color that is ground and is made from chili peppers (capsicum). It is used as a garnish in many recipes to create vibrant colors. With increasing applications and demands, specialty ingredients manufacturers continue to innovate and offer new label-friendly products, ultimately boosting the market's growth.
