Key Market Trends

Rising Demand for Natural Food Colorants

Increasing awareness about the implications of synthetic colorants has created a demand for natural colorants. The health-enhancing properties of natural colors combined with the low- trans-fat content in natural products are also boosting their appeal. Also, Spain's market for natural food colorants is favorable due to the stringent government food safety and health regulations, which is boosting the natural food colorant market. Furthermore, innovation in natural food colors to mitigate the application challenges faced by the food industry is one of the key approaches adopted by the companies so as to meet the propelling consumer demand. However, the main constrains of the industry are the high cost of production, chemical instability due to fluctuating temperature/pH conditions, and increased regulations.
