The food flavors market is evaluated at US$14.795 billion for the year 2020, growing at a CAGR of  5.07% reaching a market size of US$20.913 billion by the year 2027.

Food flavours are ingredients that are added to food and beverages to enhance the taste of food and beverages. There is a high demand for processed food in both developed and developing economies of the globe, which in turn plays a key role in supplementing the food flavors market growth globally. Processed food tends to lose its flavors over time after processing which further creates the necessity for the use of flavouring substances to maintain the flavour throughout the shelf life of the product. The market for food flavors is expected to grow nominally over the next five years, owing to the hectic and changing lifestyles of people all over the world, particularly in developing economies due to rapid urbanization and industrialization in countries such as India and China, among others.   This has further amplified the demand for convenience foods and beverages, which is anticipated to positively impact the market growth during the next five years. The growing participation by food and beverage manufacturers in the form of increased investments in R & D for the development and launch of new products is also anticipated to create lucrative business growth opportunities for the manufacturers throughout the forecast period.

The outbreak of COVID-19 is projected to negatively impact the market growth moderately to some extent as the government restrictions led to the closure of hotels, and restaurants which further led to a decline in the demand for dairy products as well as frozen food products in many parts of the world. A  slump in the food services sector amid the disease further inhibits the market growth to some extent. However, a recovery is expected after a short period of six to eight months since the easing of restrictions in some countries will further improve the demand.

The food flavors market has been segmented based on type, application, and geography. By type, the classification of the market has been done into natural, natural-identical, and artificial. By application, the market has been classified based on dairy, beverages, bakery and confectionery, and others. Geographically, the food flavors market has been distributed in North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific.

Natural flavors are witnessing a significant growth

By type, the artificial flavours segment is anticipated to hold a healthy market share over the next five years, which is supported by the fact that the costs associated with artificial flavours are comparatively lower. Since they offer similar tastes to those of natural ingredients, it is also a key factor bolstering their usage in food and beverages. The natural flavours segment is projected to grow at a noteworthy CAGR because consumer preferences toward natural ingredients are increasing in many countries due to the risk associated with the consumption of artificial ingredients. Moreover, the demand for clean label products is also increasing globally, particularly in the developing economies, primarily due to the increasing purchasing power of people along with the increasing awareness of naturally sourced food.

Beverages will account for a sizable portion of the market. By application, the bakery and confectionery segment is expected to hold a significant share in the flavors market, which is attributable to the fact that there are wide applications of flavouring agents in bakery products. Additionally, the consumption of confectionery products is increasing in both developed and developing economies around the world, which also plays a significant role in bolstering the growth of this segment during the coming five years. However, on the other hand, the beverages segment is anticipated to hold a promising market share throughout the forecast period. The major factor bolstering the share of this segment includes the applications of a variety of flavours in beverage products. The demand for beverages around the globe is increasing at a significant rate. This, in turn, is also positively influencing the growth of this segment until the end of the forecast period.

Europe will have a sizable share. Geographically, the European region is anticipated to hold a significant market share throughout the forecast period. The key factors supporting the share of the region in the global market include the wide consumption of organic foods and drinks in several countries throughout the region. The Asia Pacific region is projected to show decent growth in the market. The growing consumption of processed foods and beverages in countries like India, China, and Indonesia is one of the key factors supporting the market growth in the APAC region during the next five years.
