The global crocetin esters market size is expected to reach USD 606.0 thousand by 2030, resistering CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period from 2023 to 2030, as per the new report by Grand View Research, Inc. This is attributable to the increasing demand for natural and healthy ingredients in the food industry propelling the use of natural colorants. This is driven by the increasing awareness of potential health risks associated with synthetic colorants.
Crocetin is a natural colorant widely used in the food industry. It is well-known for giving a yellow to orange-red color to dairy products, beverages, baked products, confectionery, sauces and condiments, and ready-to-eat meals and is an attractive alternative to synthetic colorants. Moreover, crocetin esters have been found to have potential health benefits, such as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which further drive its use in food products.
Leading natural food color manufacturers, such as ADM, Chr. Hansen Holding A/S, and Sensient Colors LLC, are adopting the green label initiative. For instance, in April 2021, Chr. Hansen Holding A/S acquired SECNA GROUP S.L, a group holding multiple food and beverage firms, to expand its product portfolio and enhance its natural food color production. With this acquisition, Chr. Hansen Holding A/S Natural Colors has expanded its range of pigment products while providing SECNA GROUP S. L’s customers and suppliers with access to a broader portfolio, advanced technologies, and a larger market presence. This move is expected to further strengthen Chr. Hansen Holding A/S Natural Colors' position as a leading provider of natural color solutions in the global market.
Additionally, the production of crocetin esters is a labor-intensive and time-consuming process, which makes it a costly ingredient for manufacturers. The significant expense associated with producing crocetin esters creates a major obstacle for manufacturers who intend to incorporate this chemical into their products.
