Shifting customer preferences from fresh to dehydrated garlic are driving the market. Along with adding flavor to food, these products are capable of providing health benefits as a result of the presence of various essential nutrients. Allicin, diallyl disulfide, and s-allyl cysteine are some of the compounds that help in curing various health problems. The product also acts as a source of incredible essential nutritional constituents such as manganese, selenium, calcium, copper, potassium, phosphorus, iron, Vitamin B1, B6, and Vitamin C.

Various factors including variety, easy product access, enhanced functionalities, high ease of incorporation in local cuisines, and affordable price preposition are expected to remain favorable for promoting the utility of the dehydrated products. These products are available at a price starting from USD 1000 per tons.

Garlic has a softened flavor post roasting, which gives it a balanced, delicate, and nutty flavor. As a result, it is formulated in the preparation of stir-fries, curries, soups, sauces, pickles, and many more dishes. It compliments onion, tomatoes, chili, ginger, basil, turmeric, beans, chicken, pork, and seafood among other myriads of food items. Dehydrated garlic comes with an additional benefit as its flavoring characteristic enhances with a spicy taste after the desired time interval.

Product Insights

In terms of revenue, flakes and gloves held the largest share of more than 50.0% in 2018. This growth is attributed to the extensive application of flakes and cloves in commercial purpose businesses including restaurants, eateries, and other similar FMCG organizations. The discretion to use cloves according to requirements by chopping, mincing, or converting them into powder promotes the product’s utility over other counterparts.

Furthermore, the providers of dehydrated garlic understand the concern of the dominant flavor of garlic, which at times subdues the other ingredients. To combat the challenge, mildly dehydrated products are available in the species such as Simonetti and burgundy. For medium flavor, inchelium Red and Locati are available, and similarly, for strong flavors methi and Chinese purple are available. Thus, consumers can use a mild variety for subtle flavors and strong variety for bold flavors.

The granules and powder segment is expected to expand at a revenue-based CAGR of 3.4% from 2019 to 2025. This growth is attributed to the convenience offered by these products while adding in food as well as medicine preparation. It saves a lot of labor and energy cost dedicated to grinding. Furthermore, the roasted form of the granules and powder brings up a nutty flavor, which is largely preferred among the millennials at a global level.

Application Insights

The B2B sector accounted for a revenue share of more than 50.0% in 2018. The growth of the segment is attributed to the rising demand for dehydrated garlic among various hotels, restaurants, food chains, and pharmaceutical companies. Garlic fortified products including creamy roasted potato soup, sticky chicken bites, butter roasted chicken thighs, and steak and lobster with spicy roasted chimichurri butter are some of the popular delicacies.

Distribution Channel Insights

The offline segment was the largest distribution channel in 2018 in terms of revenue as well as volume owing to easy availability and dependence of the common crowd and restaurants on local stores supermarkets. The reliability is high on these stores on account of ease of availability, instant availability, and choice of physical verification among buyers before making any purchasing decision. Along with this, it can be observed that generation X is yet to adapt to the technical evolution as it hugely relies on manual work.

The online segment is expected to register a volume-based CAGR of 3.4% from 2019 to 2025. The familiarity with smartphones, e-retailing, and e-shopping among millennials is expected to remain a favorable factor for industry growth.

E-retailers including Alibaba and Indiamart are acting as a catalyst to this growth. The large vendor assortment and possibility to negotiate the price with increasing quantity is a lucrative advantage that online offers as compared to their offline counterparts.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific accounted for a volume share of more than 35.0% for the year 2018. This growth is attributed to the predominant consumption of garlic as a key ingredient in the preparation of Chinese cuisine. The delicious tang of ginger and garlic in every dish from stews to stir-fries has made it one of the most renowned cuisines across the world. Enhanced consumption is owing to the belief that dehydrated garlic has a positive effect on the stomach, spleen, and lungs.
