Market Overview

The oleoresin market is projected to record a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The utilization of oleoresin with its functional properties has immense importance and demand in emerging countries. Thus, with the sudden outbreak of COVID-19, the oleoresin market rapidly grew with its high demand in the food and beverage sector, pharmaceuticals, and nutraceutical industry. Various medical researchers have claimed that the use of capsicum oleoresin is rising in the medication of neuropathic pain relief sprays. It supports providing temporary relief of minor pains or aches of the body joint or muscles owing to its analgesic properties in topical OTC preparations. However, during the initial phase of the pandemic, the demand for processed and packaged food was oversized, which led the manufacturers to shift towards utilizing oleoresins as an alternative to ground spices, thus boosting the growth of the oleoresin market.

Oleoresins are popular in the beverages industry since they can be a great base flavor or part of a complex flavor profile. These can also be used to add natural color to beverages, further increasing their usability in this industry. The wide varieties of oleoresins give them numerous possibilities to formulate new or improved natural foods and flavorings. Adding to this, in developed economies that are largely dependent on imports from developing countries, initially, supply chain risk persisted. However, being one of the most sought-after destinations for herbs, spices, and seasonings, as well as products having a recognizable value and local demand, the market entry at present is less impacted by the same.

Oleoresins are used in making scents, fragrances, and several cosmetics products. Its consistency, texture, and subtle scents and flavors make them perfect for making hair loss lotion, perfume, colognes, and other cosmetics. While in the pharmaceutical industry, it is being used as an ingredient in medicines, medicinal soaps, etc. Furthermore, chili oleoresins are utilized in pharmaceutical applications because of their anti-inflammation, antioxidant, anti-cancer, and analgesic features, as they help decrease the body's free radicals.

Especially manufacturers of meat products, such as sausages, frequently apply oleoresins as ingredients instead of using marinades from flavoring manufacturers.

Europe Holds a Significant Market Share

The United Kingdom, Germany, and Spain are prominent users of oleoresins in the region, with the largest food and beverage industries. The region imports most of its oleoresins from Asian counties, particularly India. Furthermore, several industries in Europe like perfumery, personal care & cosmetics, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage extensively incorporate oleoresins and ingredients in their commodities. The rising popularity of ethnic cuisines, such as Indian, Mexican, and Thai, has spurred the demand for oleoresins derived from spices among food manufacturers, for instance, pepper oleoresin, in order to mimic fresh pepper flavor. The region offers huge potential for oleoresin manufacturers, owing to increasing demand and fluctuations in the raw material supply within the region. For instance, oleoresin extractions for cardamom take place in countries such as India and Sri Lanka. So they have export opportunities in the region, provided that they comply with the European regulations and standards for oleoresins. For example, European legislation has permitted the usage of only a few extraction solvents, namely, propane, butane, ethyl acetate, ethanol, carbon dioxide, acetone, and nitrous oxide.
