Report Overview

The global flavors and fragrances market size was valued at USD 29.15 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.4% from 2023 to 2030.

Rising disposable income in emerging economies like India and China coupled with population growth is expected to augment the demand for personal care and cosmetic products in the industry.

Natural fragrances and flavors are costly due to their processing; and because of limited resources, industry 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.

However, such an arrangement is no longer popular. Due to the increased awareness about the adverse 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. These extracts are used in anti-aging cosmetic products to help reduce 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. The increasing demand for health and wellness foods, Ready-to-Eat (RTE), and convenience meals, as well as rapid technological advancements, are expected to further augment the industry growth.

Product Type Insights

The natural chemicals segment dominated the industry in 2022 and accounted for the maximum share of more than 74.30% of the overall revenue. This is attributed to the ever-increasing product usage in various application industries like pharmaceuticals, aromatherapy, and natural cosmetics. Furthermore, increasing research spending for the development of natural fragrance compounds is expected to have a positive impact on the overall industry. Aroma chemicals are synthetic aromas, which are used in many applications, such as essential oils, food & beverages, and perfumes.

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 high demand for the exotic essential oil to be used in pharmaceuticals, aromatherapy, and natural cosmetics. The demand for fragrances where the odor value of a fragrance is replaced with natural oils is high in developed countries. Thus, many exotic essential oils like, sandal, junipers, rosemary, lavender, geranium, etc. find applications in multiple new blends.

Application Insights

The fragrances application segment dominated the global industry in 2022 and accounted for the maximum share of more than 53.60% of the overall revenue. The high share of this segment can be attributed 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.

In addition, the growing demand for aromatherapy diffusers is likely to fuel the industry's growth in the coming years. Flavors are the aromas used in food & beverage products. There is a rise in the application of flavors in several foods and beverages in commercial as well as domestic applications. In addition, feed and feed additive manufacturers are focusing more on providing palatability solutions to increase feed intake. This, in turn, is projected to propel the demand for flavors in animal feed applications supporting the overall market growth.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific dominated the global industry in 2022 and accounted for the highest share of more than 31.40% of the overall revenue. This is attributed to the shift in choices of consumers towards nutritional and healthy foods 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 flavor 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.

Flavors And Fragrances Market Trends by 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. The Comprehensive Economic & Trade Agreement (CETA) 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 it to participate 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 industry is fragmented and dominated by large-scale 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. Furthermore, 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 industry players.
