The U.S. flavors and fragrances market size was estimated at USD 5.80 billion in 2023 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 3.6% from 2024 to 2030. The growth can be attributed to the rising inclusion of different flavors & fragrances in the formulation of fine scents and perfumes. Additionally, surging demand for flavors & fragrances for use in beverages, personal care products & skincare is expected to contribute to the market growth.

U.S. Flavors and Fragrances Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The flavor and fragrance industry in the United States has a strong foothold in the global market as the consumers in the country are open to trying new food products, which shows consumers' affinity for ethnic flavors and dishes. The Asian and Hispanic populations are rising in the country, which has led to the emergence of ethnic new tastes and flavor profiles. Such factors provide a great opportunity for the flavor manufacturers to launch natural ethnic flavors, such as fish sauce, doenjang, garlic chives, ginger, and lapsang souchong, to boost their growth.

Majority of dips and sauces available in the market are dairy-based owing to their rich texture and creamy flavor profiles. However, consumers are increasingly shifting toward plant-based alternatives due to the emerging trend of veganism and the prevalence of lactose intolerance among adults. The market is responding with technological innovations aimed at replicating the richness of whole milk and cream, with dairy alternatives. In December 2021, T. Hasegawa developed EmulsiTRACTTM giving full-bodied flavor to plant-based milk, coffee creamer, ice cream, and yogurt.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market growth is medium and is accelerating at a significant pace owing to a moderately fragmented market. U.S. flavors and fragrances manufacturers are actively implementing challenging strategic initiatives such as mergers & acquisitions, innovation, and production expansion, among others.

U.S. Flavors and Fragrances Market Concentration & Characteristics

The degree of innovation is high. Consumers are diving into the diversity of different cultures and the complex science of flavour development is rapidly evolving. The food and beverage industry is continuously changing and technical innovations are reshaping consumer experience. For instance, T. Hasegawa USA is integrating international flavors and ingredients with the help of its BOOSTRACT, EmulsiTRACTTM, HASEAROMATM, and ChefAroma technologies.

The threat of substitutes is expected to be low. Market players are focused on increasing the manufacturing capacities of key flavors and fragrance products and are installing new facilities for various niche specialty flavors and fragrances for new product development. Limited availability of raw materials and stringent regulatory environment for the production of flavors and fragrances are likely to minimize the threat of substitutes.

Most of these companies are vertically integrated and produce products that cater to various applications. Manufacturers have to abide by manufacturing & labelling laws, regulations, and guidelines published by regulatory authorities such as the U.S. Food & Drug Agency (FDA), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the World Health Organization.

Application Insights

Fragrances accounted for the largest revenue share of 52.6% in 2023 and is projected to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period.

In addition, feed and feed additive manufacturers such as Kemin Industries, Inc. and Bentoli, LLC among others are focused on providing palatability solutions to increase the feed intake. This is projected to drive the demand for flavors in animal feed applications.

The health & wellness trend prevailing in the market is anticipated to enhance the preference given to natural flavor ingredients.  The food & beverage industry offers huge potential due to rising demand for ready-to-eat meals, processed food, snacks, juices, and other beverages.
