Asia Pacific Remains the Largest Market

Asia-Pacific continues to lead the pickles and pickle products market, owing to its increased commercialization and industrialization of the pickle processing industry in developing countries like India.

However, in different parts of the country, different ingredients are used to make pickles because India has so many indigenous varieties of fruits and vegetables.

Other types of pickles include amla pickle, beetroot pickle, carrot pickle, bitter guard pickle, and many more. Each region has its favorites, and their preference also changes seasonally. Additionally, with the influence of western cuisines in the country, there has been significant demand for gourmet pickles as well in the past couple of years. The market players in India are launching new products in the Indian market. For instance, in January 2022, Indian Traditional Food launched Gujjuben and YO’S Kitchen Sandwich pickles in India’s largest food expo Indus Food 2022.
