 U.S. flavors and fragrances market size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

Natural fragrances and flavors are costly due to their processing and due to limited resources, market players have developed cost-efficient synthetic alternatives. These products have the advantages of regular supply, steady pricing, and lower production costs. In the past years, there used to exist an arrangement in which dealers would have a multi-year contract with other dealers, but such arrangement is no longer popular.

Due to the rise in awareness about the ill – effects of allopathic medicines, increasing concerns about the medicinal benefits, and therapeutic effects of herbal products are likely to fuel the demand for herbal products, dietary supplements, and herbal-based beauty aids derived from botanical extracts worldwide. These extracts are used in anti-aging cosmetic products to help in reducing the radical damage caused by bioflavonoids in their composition.

Flavors and fragrances provide strong sensory impressions, often determined when applied via medical products, beverages, food, and other substances. These products enhance the aesthetic value and overall appeal of consumer goods. Increasing demand for health and wellness foods, ready-to-eat and convenience meals, as well as technological advancements, are expected to propel market growth.

Product Type Insights

Aroma chemicals dominated the market with the highest revenue share of over 64% in 2021. This is attributed to ever-increasing usage in the application industries like pharmaceutical, food & beverages, perfumeries, and wine. Furthermore, increasing research spending on the development of fragrance compounds is also expected to have a positive impact on the market.

Aroma chemicals are synthetic aromas that are used in many applications such as essential oils, food & beverages, perfumes, and others. Aroma chemicals play a crucial role in the manufacturing of fragrances and flavors that are used in the food industry to enhance the appeal and flavor of the product. These chemicals are classified as phenols, aldehydes, alcohols, esters, and other chemicals.

The use of natural products is on the rise due to the rising demand for exotic essential oils to be used in pharmaceuticals, aromatherapy, and natural cosmetics. Advanced countries are demanding fragrances where the odor value of a fragrance is replaced with natural oils. Thus, many exotic essential oils, like, Sandal, Junipers, Rosemary, Lavender, Geranium, etc. are finding usability in multiple new blends.

Application Insights

Fragrances dominated the market with a high revenue share of over 53% in 2021. Its high share is attributable to the increased demand for various fragrances in toiletries such as hand washes, detergents, soaps, personal care products, and cosmetics.

Furthermore, fragrance plays an important role in aromatherapy applications, owing to which essential oils, materials, compounds, and aromatic oils demand is likely to be driven in aromatherapy applications. Additionally, the growing demand for aromatherapy diffusers is further likely to fuel the market growth in the coming years.

Flavors are the aromas used in food & beverages. There is a rise in the application of flavors in numerous foods and beverages in commercial as well as domestic applications. In addition, feed and feed additive manufacturers are focused on providing palatability solutions to increase feed intake. This is projected to propel the demand for flavors in animal feed applications.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific dominated the market with a high revenue share of more than 30% in 2021. This is attributed to the shift in the choices of consumers towards nutritional and healthy food and beverages in most populated countries like India and China.

Asian flavors and fragrances have also gained popularity in the major regions of Europe and North America. Indonesia, India, China, and Vietnam are among the prominent food flavors markets in the region of Asia-Pacific. Multiple manufacturing companies are focusing on the expansion of their business and investments in R&D facilities in the Asia Pacific region.

Factors such as government subsidies, tax benefits, and high per capita income are attracting global companies to expand and start their operation in this region which is projected to develop the production and application of various flavors and fragrances in North America. Moreover, the CETA (Comprehensive Economic & Trade Agreement) is predicted to remove the customs duty on food and agricultural products and several other industrial products.

The trade agreement between Canada and the European Union is likely to enable participation in public bids in Canada. This is further intended to propel the trade of essential oils between Europe and North America, thereby providing a significant growth opportunity for the essential oils & floral extracts industry players in North America.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The flavors and fragrances market is fragmented and dominated by large multinational companies. Smaller companies differentiate themselves by creating unique natural fragrances and flavors and as a result, make it difficult for their competitors to imitate and enter the domestic market. The manufacturers are experiencing profit margin problems which have become worse due to the demands of retailers and processors and their private label brands.

Safety considerations and environmental protection laws are becoming vital in most developed countries. Operating costs and the cost of investments are also getting higher each year. Under these circumstances, the clearances for new projects are tough to obtain in developed countries. Further, creativity and innovation are the most important factors for achieving a competitive edge. Thus, to achieve this, new ingredients are being searched for resulting in higher processing costs. These factors are expected to be a challenge for market players. Some prominent players in the global flavors and fragrances market include:
