The poppy seeds market is projected to show steady growth during the forecast period.

Poppy seed is an oilseed that is derived from the opium poppy which has been collected by many cultures for thousands of years from dried seed pods. It is still widely used in many nations, particularly in Central Europe and South Asia, where it is produced and sold in stores. The seeds are crushed to produce poppyseed oil and are used whole or ground into meals as a component in many cuisines, including bread and pastries. Depending on where they are grown, these blossoms yield tiny, spherical, blue, black, or light to dark grey seeds.

Poppy seeds are utilised in traditional foods and baked items throughout the world. Many different cuisines, notably European and Indian, use poppy seeds. They provide flavorful complements to baked goods such as bread, cakes and pastries and they are used as a filler or topping on many types of sweet pastry after being cooked in milk. Poppy seeds are now widely available in restaurants and supermarkets throughout the world as a result of the globalisation of culinary culture and healthy food choices. Thus, one of the key elements affecting the growth of the poppy seed market would be the profitable increase in the HoReCa sector. The Federation of Hotel and Restaurant Associations of India published research that estimates the HoReCa sector's yearly economic contribution to India at over USD 78 billion, or more than 7 per cent of GDP. National Restaurant Association estimated that predicted that sales forecasts for the HoReCa industry in the USA to be USD 997 billion in 2023 which is a 33 per cent increase from 2021.

The seeds are sold to persons who appear to have insomnia, anxiety, and tension. The seeds are also used as dietary supplements to enhance the sleep cycle. Poppy seed is also used by people for diarrhoea, coughing, and asthma. As a result, the health advantages of poppy seed intake would propel market expansion during the analysis period.

Yet, the worldwide poppy market is being constrained by the high price of poppy seeds, the lack of scientific proof for the health benefits of poppy seeds and the lack of legal status in countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Malaysia etc. Due to the presence of morphine in poppy seeds, their sale is prohibited in Singapore. Poppy seeds are also illegal in Taiwan, mainly due to the possibility that sellable seeds may be distributed and used to cultivate opium poppies.

The health advantages associated with the consumption of poppy seeds will spur growth for the global market during the projection period.

One of the primary factors driving the growth of the global market is the long list of health benefits associated with poppy seeds. One teaspoon of poppy seeds has 9.7 mg of magnesium, which is essential for healthy bones and blood coagulation and they are also a rich source of dietary fibre. The growth and health of the nervous system are significantly influenced by the iron and calcium content of poppy seeds. The insoluble fibre included in poppy seeds helps maintain a healthy digestive system and effectively treats constipation. Dietary fibres are widely distributed in poppy seeds. They contribute to maintaining high levels of good cholesterol and lowering levels of dangerous cholesterol in the body. Poppy seeds are also a good source of iron and help with blood circulation. Sleep is effectively induced by opium poppies. The seeds are understood to have a calming effect and help with stress reduction.

Europe is anticipated to hold a significant amount of the global poppy seeds market share during the forecast period

The European region is anticipated to hold a significant amount of market share in poppy seeds In 2021, the Czech Republic will produce 40 per cent of all poppy seeds produced in Europe, making it the continent's top producer. The consumption of these oilseeds in Europe is being driven by the expansion of gourmet cuisine and the health and wellness movement. At 31 per cent of the world's total production, the Czech Republic is the largest producer of poppy seeds. The Czech Republic's poppy seed output is mostly grown for export because domestic consumption is only 5000 metric tonnes. Turkey contributes to 35 per cent of total poppy seeds production in Europe. Black and white poppy seeds are frequently used in buns and soft white bread pastries throughout Europe such as cozonac, kalach, kolache, and koacz. Several regions of Central and Eastern Europe regularly ingest the seeds of the Czech blue poppy. In Poland, Hungary, Lithuania, and Eastern Slovakia, poppy seeds are used to make a traditional dessert for the Kios supper. Prime markets in the European region include the UK, France, Italy, Germany and Spain.

Market Key Developments

  • In March 2023, Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal, pushed the federal government to permit poppy cultivation in the region, arguing that foods made with its seeds are essential to Bengali cuisine. Poppy seeds are expensive because they are only grown in a few states, according to Banerjee.
  • In March 2023,  Cielo Puro Cleansing Oil Balm, a powerful new olive oil cleanser with poppy seed extract from Furtuna Skin an Italian skincare company, provides a double cleanse in one product.
