The global seasoning and spices market is expected to register a CAGR of 4.76%, during the forecast period (2018 - 2023). Nutritional benefits derived from seasonings and spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, basil and turmeric, among others, have proved to be a key factor promoting the growth of the seasonings and spices market.

Burgeoning Demand for Processed Food

The growth of the processed food industry is fueling an increase in the global market for seasonings and spices, in both developed and developing countries. There has been an increase in consumer spending on baked goods, confectionery products and ready-to-eat & fried food, particularly in developed economies. As a consequence, sectors such as bakery, confectionery and prepared food are buying more spices. Easy-to-prepare and ready-cooked meals rely on spices and herbs to retain and enhance food flavor (e.g. ready-to-use spices and herbs, seasonings and condiments).

In addition, these products increase the demand for crushed and ground spices and herbs, as well as spice and herb mixtures. As a consequence of which, the demand for spices and herbs will continue to grow.

Herbs likely to Register Highest Growth Rate

The application of salt and salt substitutes are not only limited to flavor profile of the product, but also to its’ role in food preservation (one of the oldest methods). Fresh cut herbs or culinary herbs are well suited to small-scale production due to their unique growing conditions and intensive labor requirements. The production process can be carried out on small land without heavy machinery or any technological advancement in the machinery. Companies have been commercially producing herbs to cater to growing demand and its application in processed food industry. The growing consumer interest in healthier food products such as salad dressings with packaged salad being available in modern retail channels has boosted the market space for regional seasonings and spices. The spices segment is expected to register a CAGR of 4.99% during the forecast period.

North America at the Leading Front

The seasonings & spices market was led by North America with a share of 28.26%, however Asia-Pacific is anticipated to register highest growth rate of 6.03% during the forecast period. The use of spices in the United States continues to increase. Californian bay leaf, spice bush, anise hyssop, and wintergreen are some of the prominent spices with regional roots. The rising consumption of more spice products, like pastes, curry powders, spices, oils & oleoresins and other value added forms than whole spices in South American countries like Brazil is likely to boost the market growth in the region.
