Key Market Trends
Expansion of Natural/Clean Label Food Coupled With Stringent Regulation
The demand for global natural flavors is broadly driven by surging consumer consensus to perceive food products as healthy if derived from natural ingredients such as vanilla. With consumers now using both the terms synonymically, it often influences them to skip products formulated with artificial ingredients, further benefitting the market studied.
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 ITC, 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.
Furthermore, the research conducted by the Macquarie University of Australia found that people are most likely to believe consumers of natural foods to be more virtuous than consumers of unnatural foods. Thus, this is further pushing them to contribute to a much earlier stage of the value chain, rooting back to ingredients, and propelling demand for vanilla as a natural food flavoring.
