Change in dietary trends

Vegetarianism is a relatively new diet being widely adopted all over the world as health awareness rises. Plant-based condiments are an optimal solution to add flavor to food while keeping calories in check as fitness becomes a major motive along with a reduced risk of diseases. These new dietary trends are inducing growth in the market. Animal-based products are blamed for using antibiotic doses while rearing the animals and the growing concern for animal welfare is diverting consumers to plant-based condiments. The market is thriving with opportunities due to its high potential to reach a wider consumer base with the latest products.

Innovative marketing strategies

The plant-based condiment products are well-marketed with eye-catching taglines and celebrity endorsements which is the chief propeller of the growth of the market. Rising the commercialization scale and innovation by the market players will further boost the business of plant-based condiments. The novel packaging and labeling of the condiments attract consumers to the market thereby, increasing the product's demand.


The processing and marketing costs of the plant-based products raise the final price of the products which refrains people from purchasing the products regularly. These products are widely used in food services and gastro-cuisines which have a limited consumer base. These factors slow down the growth of the otherwise, highly potential market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Plant-Based Condiments Market

The pandemic has impacted the food industry negatively on both the supply and demand sides. The plant-based condiment market saw a drop in the output due to the lack of raw material and manufacturing plants operating at low capacity. Trade also suffered as exports were cut down and imposition of import quotas. However, production began to rise over the past months. On the demand side, the household sector's demand increased as people resorted to home cooking during the lockdowns. The HoReCa segment gradually caught up with the demand as online food delivery systems were allowed to ply in.
