Report Overview

The global sauces, dressings, and condiments market size were valued at USD 130.4 billion in 2018. Shifting consumer diet preferences and consumption patterns towards healthy and nutritional food is a major factor for industry growth. Furthermore, the increasing popularity of international cuisines, coupled with flavorful ethnic sauces, is fueling the demand for sauces, dressings, and condiments.

U.S. sauces, dressings & condiments market

Consumers are shifting towards natural and organic food products, which are tastier, healthier, and more nutritious. This consumption trend is widespread among the young adult population across the globe. These beliefs among consumers who seek products with a clean label, coupled with increasing concerns over food safety, are resulting in a shift in preferences towards the purchase of sauces, dressings, and condiments. In addition, rapid urbanization, coupled with growing consumer interest in multi-cuisine culture, is anticipated to fuel the demand for sauces, dressings, and condiments in the foreseeable future. Moreover, a significant increase in product innovations and new product launches are supporting industry growth.

The increasing popularity of Asian cuisines in the U.S. has increased the demand for different flavors of sauces, dressings, and condiments. According to an article published by ‘The Washington Post’, in 2014, large restaurants chains in the U.S. account for 50% of their sale through Asian cuisines across the U.S. For instance, ‘Panda Express’ a fast food restaurant chain that reported a sales of USD 2 billion in which 50% was reported from the Asian cuisines. This growing popularity of international cuisines across the globe is expected to expand the scope of the market for sauces, dressings, and condiments over the forecast period.

Governments across the globe are taking initiatives in order to promote the condiments, sauces, and dressing products. Many governments are providing incentives as well as subsidies on the import of products, which is opening new avenues for the trader. For instance, the governments of South Korea and Australia have reduced tariffs on tomato ketchup as well as prepared mustard (prime ingredient for mustard sauce) from 4.5% in 2016 to 3.4% in 2017 under the Korea-Australia Free Trade Agreement (KAFTA). This significant reduction of tariffs increased the opportunities for the Australian traders to enter South Korea. These initiatives by the governments are supporting the increasing demand for sauces, dressings, and condiments.

Product Insights

Cooking sauces held the largest share of 38.1% in 2018. Key industry participants are launching new products in order to cater to increasing demand for cooking sauces as a result of the rising popularity of international cuisines across the globe. For instance, in March 2017, Kinneret Farm, an Israel-based company, launched a wide range of cooking sauces, marinades, and natural date molasses under the brand name, ‘Oriendi’ for the U.K. market. These products offer new flavors as well as convenience to the customers. These product innovations are expected to drive the market for sauces, dressings, and condiments in the coming years.

Dips are expected to be the fastest-growing segment, expanding at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2019 to 2025 owing to increasing demand for the on-the-go food among the youth population across the globe.

For instance, in December 2018, The Kraft Heinz Company launched a wide range of dips under the brand name, Philadelphia Dips. The dips are available in three flavors including jalapeño cheddar, southwest style with black bean and corn, and buffalo style with celery. These product launches are expected to remain favorable for the dips segment over the forecast period, thereby driving the market for sauces, dressings, and condiments.

In February 2019, 7-Eleven, one of the largest convenience store chains in the world, has entered in an agreement with Future Group to open its first store in India, which is one of the fastest-growing retail markets. SHME Food Brands, a subsidiary of Future Group, will convert existing stores to the 7-Eleven brand store and thus, will open new stores across the country by the end of 2019.
