Global Natural Food Flavors market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.75% during the forecast period, 2020-2025.

- As per the International Food Information Council Foundation, the overall flavor industry runs due to consumer demand for the most nuanced and subtle flavors in food, with taste being a crucial factor influencing a consumer’s purchase decision. The organization reveals that the importance of taste has increased since 2018, with about 86% of consumers choosing taste over other food attributes prior to their purchase. Along with the statement mentioned above, the demand for natural food flavors arises with the general consumer consensus to perceive food products as healthy if derived from natural ingredients.
- Moreover, consumers are greatly fascinated to use products with simple and understandable labels, which pushes food companies to opt for natural flavors that instantly gives a sense of relief to consumers, irrespective of its chemical association during production.
- However, high cost of extraction and expensive raw materials discourage food manufacturers, primarily in developing countries, to be as progressive as big firms and brands that are constantly rooting for healthier food products.

Key Market Trends
Resurgance of Natural Food Products Among Consumers

The demand for global natural flavors is broadly driven by surging consumer consensus to perceive food products as healthy if derived from natural ingredients. With consumers now using both the terms synonymically, it often influences them to skip products formulated with artificial ingredients, further benefitting the market studied. It ensures that the same consumers are even keeping a constant check on food labels before purchasing. Several organizational surveys on consumer buying behavior reveal the rising consumer interest to probe for superior ingredients in the food label. According to the study published by the International Food Information Council Foundation, in 2019, about 59% of Americans claimed to always read labels on packaged food before buying it for the first time, with about 24% of them specifically look for specific claims, including natural formulation in the food product. This changing consumer behavior and market dynamics for food flavorings are pushing food manufacturers to quit formulating artificial additives in food products. Moreover, major food companies, such as Kellogg’s, General Mills, Nestle, Campbell, and Kraft, have assured to restrict the use of artificial additives and flavors from their product formulations, portraying a promising future of natural flavors during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific Emerges As the Fastest Growing Market

The natural food flavor industry in Asia Pacific is exhibiting the highest growth rate oowing to the rising consumer awareness regarding the negative effects of synthetic flavors coupled with the growth in the spending abilities of the consumers in the region. The rising prominence of clean label ingredients with the label claims such as 100% natural, non-GMO, and organic in the Asian countries like China is boosting the demand of natural food additives such as natural food colorants, natural food flavors among others. The demand for these natural ingredients is increasing, due to the increasing health concerns of the customers, regarding the adverse health effects of artificial ingredients. ?Over the recent years, the demand for natural food flavors has increased among the Chinese consumers due to the influence of western-style cooking in China, which can be observed in the growing import for flavoring products, along with domestic consumption. For instance, in May 2020, PepsiCo is putting local culture and comfort at the heart of its NPD strategy in China with the launch of its first domestic market-inspired launch – an Osmanthus-flavored soft drink. Furthermore, amid the COVID-19 outbreak, the consumption of plant-based and natural products has increased drastically, owing to the huge demand for healthy food ingredients, and significant rise in the consumer awareness, boosting the demand for natural flavors in the region.
