Market Overview

Middle-East and African flavor and fragrance market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.75%, during the forecast period 2020-2025.

  • Middle-East food manufacturing and processing sector witnessed rapid growth in the past ten years. The strong support from the government, direct subsidies, long-term interest-free loans, duty-free imports of raw materials, and highly subsided utilities are the factors that prompted the industries to make an entry into the food ingredients market.
  • The rapid growth of the food processing sector provides good export opportunities for the US suppliers of bulk and intermediate products, as most of these Middle-East companies rely heavily on imported raw materials and food ingredients, including food flavors.
  • As some flavors are country and region-specific, the manufacturers are constantly innovating to introduce new products in the market to capture the major market share. However, due to the presence of limited natural resources to extract flavors, the new entrants often face challenges in the flavor industry.
