Spices and Seasonings Market Trends

The Demand for Processed Food is Driving Seasoning and Spice Consumption

The growth of the processed food industry is fueling the demand for spices and seasonings. Various food companies are investing in the food processing industry to gain additional market shares. Moreover, there has been an increase in consumer spending owing to changing lifestyles, a rising population of working women, growing product offerings, and penetration of retail channels on savory snacks, soups, noodles, beverages, and ready-to-eat food, particularly in developed countries. Consequently, sectors such as sauces, salads & dressings, are buying more spices, which in turn, is driving the market growth significantly.

In the past few years, it has been observed that consumers are giving paramount importance to health and are shelling out more money on organic food and ingredients owing to their health benefits. Increasing awareness about harmful ingredients and additives in processed food pushes consumers toward organic spices. Some examples of organic spices include mint, rosemary, nutmeg, basil, cardamom, chili, cinnamon, chives, coriander, dill, cumin, ginger, oregano, paprika, parsley, sage, thyme, and turmeric.

The Seasoning and Spice Market is Expanding Most Swiftly in the Asia-Pacific Region

The seasonings and spices market in Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing region across the globe due to the improvement in taste for western cuisines and a mix of cultures in the food space. Rising demand for foreign cuisines such as Italian and French foods has also contributed to the increase in demand for herbs and seasonings in the form of spice extracts. In recent years, spice mixes have become a promising area for innovation since spices are an invaluable family of flavoring agents. Due to these factors, Asia is a potential market for spices and seasonings, and manufacturers are offering new products to attract Asian consumers. Other major driving factors of the spices & seasonings market in the region are the growing middle-class population, increasing awareness amongst end-users regarding health, and increased usage of spices as natural preservatives.

Moreover, the rapid increase in demand for healthy and nutrition-rich foods from the health-conscious young population globally has broader the consumer base of this segment of organic food products. Additionally, national and international players follow various strategies such as partnerships, product blend innovations, expansions, etc. For instance, in February 2021, Kerry Group announced that it had completed the acquisition of the Jining Nature Group.
