The aroma chemicals market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.33% over the forecast period to reach US$7.038 billion by 2027 from US$5.232 billion in 2020. Aroma chemicals refer to chemicals having pleasant and distinct odors and are added to products to enhance their fragrances. Such chemicals are either natural-based driven from plants through distillation or made in laboratories. Owing to their ability for imparting varied flavor scents and fragrances such chemicals have high applicability in cosmetics & personal care as well as food & beverage products, however, they find major use in various cosmetic products. With the rapid growth in the urban population coupled with improvement in living standards, the demand for cosmetics is also expected to increase. For instance, according to the data provided by World Bank, in 2021, the global urban population held 57% the percentage share of the global population which showed an increase of 4% in comparison to 2014’s urban population. Furthermore, the growing product innovation is expected to take the market in a new direction.
Based on source type, the aroma chemicals market is segmented into natural and synthetic sources. The natural source segment is expected to grow at a relatively higher rate during the forecast period of the aroma chemicals market. The natural aroma chemicals are driven from plant parts which include flowers, seeds, wood, leaves, fruits, and peels. Such chemicals in comparison to the synthetic source have low toxicity levels, and higher mood-enhancing properties, and since they are naturally driven, so they cause little to less skin or allergic reactions. The growing awareness of natural and organic ingredients in cosmetics & personal care products is expected to boost the demand for natural aroma chemicals in the future, thereby stimulating the segment as well as the overall market growth of aroma chemicals during the forecast period.
The bolstering increase in cosmetics consumption has created a surge in the growth of the aroma chemicals market. Aroma chemicals have high applicability in various cosmetics and personal products such as lotions, perfumes, and shampoos among others to provide pleasant fragrances and distinctive scents. With rapid urbanization and an increase in disposable income, the consumption scale of consumer products such as cosmetics has increased over the years. For instance, according to the annular report of Shishido, in 2021, the company’s global cosmetics sales saw an increase of 12.4% in comparison to 2020’s sales volume with major segments such as skincare showing major growth. Also, according to the annual report of L’Oreal, in 2021, the sales of the active cosmetics segment of the company saw a 30.3% growth in comparison to 2020. Furthermore, as per the annual report of Unilever, in 201, the company reported an increase of 3.8% in the global sales of its beauty & personal care products. With such an increase in cosmetics & personal care products, the demand and scope of usage of aroma chemicals are projected to increase, thereby boosting the aroma chemicals market growth during the forecast period.
Recent development and expansion
The lockdown and other restrictions undertaken by the government of countries negatively impacted the demand and consumption of certain consumer products such as cosmetics, owing to which various international conglomerates operating in the cosmetic sector reported heavy losses. For instance, according to the annual report of L’Oreal, in 2020, the company witnessed a drop of 4.1% in its product sales due to the ongoing pandemic. Furthermore, according to the annual report of cosmetic giant Shishido, in 2020, the cosmetics sales of the company in Japan dropped by 32.9% whereas sales in the Americas saw a 26.5% decrease due to the COVID restrictions. Aroma chemicals constitute a major ingredient in cosmetics & personal care products and with the decrease in the sales of such products, the demand for aroma chemicals also decreased during the COVID period which negatively impacted the aroma chemicals market growth. However, the easing of COVID restrictions globally is providing a positive outlook to the aroma chemicals market, as the demand and consumption of cosmetics products will increase steadily, thereby simultaneously boosting the market demand for aroma chemicals in the future.
