Key Market Trends

Synthetic Color Held the Largest Market Share

Owing to the abundant availability, low processing cost, and efficient application in the food industry, the synthetic color segment held the largest market share in the Japanese food colorants market. Further, synthetic colors are preferred by many food manufacturers due to their texture attributes and feasible consistency. However, the segment is experiencing a downfall, due to the increasing interest of consumers toward natural ingredients, which is estimated to alter the revenue share of the synthetic color segment during the forecast period.
