Of both, Plant-based flavors have gained a considerable market share during 2017-21, mainly due to the burgeoning demand for vegan food, adoption of healthy eating habits, surging intake levels of health supplements by consumers worldwide, especially after the Covid-19 pandemic.

The adoption of veganism has forced food & beverage manufacturers, particularly across North America & Europe, to use natural flavors in their product offerings, which, in turn, has promulgated the demand for plant-based natural flavoring agents across these regions. Moreover, many companies have started collaborating to develop plant-based natural flavoring agents and are fueling the overall market growth. For instance:

  • In 2021, Givaudan SA collaborated with Biosyntia ( a Denmark-based Biotech Company) to explore the utilization of fermentation technology for creating natural flavor ingredients. Givaudan planned to use sugar to develop natural flavor ingredients for food & beverages.

Regional Landscape:

Based on the Geography, the Global Natural Flavoring Agents market expands across:

  • North America
  • South America
  • Europe
  • Middle East & Africa
  • Asia-Pacific

Of all regions globally, North America holds the major share in the Natural Flavoring Agents Market due to the consumers' shift towards natural food ingredients, organic products, clean labeling, etc., during 2017-19, coupled with the extensive presence of natural flavoring agent manufacturers across the region.

Consumers in North America are rapidly shifting toward organic vegetables & fruits for improved health. These products are grown without the use of harmful chemical fertilizers & pesticides, and, as a result, they provide higher nutritional content than chemical-rich foods. Additionally, the long-term & severe effects of artificial ingredients & chemicals present in food products on health are also inclining consumers to opt for natural ingredients.

Moreover, the United States FDA has banned the use of 7 synthetic flavoring agents, i.e., another prominent aspect expected to drive the regional market. Hence, the growing need for organic products to maintain a healthy lifestyle & reduce the long-term effects of artificial ingredients are propelling the demand for natural flavoring agents in the region. The growing trend of natural ingredients in food is attracting manufacturers to adopt innovative technologies to improve product sustainability by adding natural flavoring agents. For instance:

  • In July 2021, IFF launched a cost-effective natural flavor, 'GUARDIAN® Chelox 30C' in North America. It comprises antioxidants, texturizing, and moisture retention properties for mayonnaise & mayonnaise-based dressings.

Recent Developments by Leading Companies

  • In 2022, Royal DSM launched a new Food & Beverage business group that merges its three business areas (Food specialties, hydrocolloids, and part of its nutritional products group) to align with customer & market needs. The new group will unite the full range of natural food & beverage ingredients, expertise, and science-based solutions to improve the texture & taste and promote healthier lives.

Market Dynamics:

Key Driver: Growing Awareness about Natural Ingredients in Food

Food consumption levels worldwide have grown considerably due to rapid urbanization and a surge in disposable income. Mounting awareness regarding healthy lifestyles is compelling consumers to include natural ingredients in their food, which, in turn, is positively impacting the demand for natural flavoring agents.

With the growing world population, the pressure on flavor manufacturers in an already competitive space is increasing, i.e., leading them to offer innovative natural flavors. Additionally, the food & beverage industry is linked increasingly with the health & wellness space and consumer expectation for delicious products that support health alongside environmental & social aspirations. This has forced manufacturers to develop new products for consumers. For instance:

  • In 2021, Firmenich launched Dynarome® SR, an Innovative Natural Ingredient, to provide meat-like juiciness in Plant-based alternatives. The solution offered by the company assists in recreating the juicy taste in vegan products.
  • In 2019, Givaudan launched an innovative flavoring approach to change the taste experience of meat substitutes created from textured vegetable protein. The type of protein is used widely in plant-based meat alternatives.

Market Restraint: Limited Shelf Life of Natural Flavors

Natural ingredients are added to food products to enhance the taste, and these products are then stored at different places until delivered to the end consumer. These ingredients have limited & less shelf life compared to synthetic flavors, which impacts their application in food products. The shelf life of the food depends primarily on the type of process, formulation, packaging material, and storage conditions. During this processing period, several chemical changes take place. The prime concern is the natural flavor stability, i.e., maintaining the shelf life of food products and the flavor intensity throughout all processing stages.

The process of extracting natural elements is complex and requires high costs & advanced technologies. Moreover, the long-supply chain requires food products with higher shelf life. The movement of food products to several different locations reduces the shelf life of natural flavors. Hence, this aspect might impact the growth of the Global Natural Flavoring Agents Market in the years to come.

Growth Opportunity: Stringent Regulations Banning the Utilization of Synthetic Flavorings

The United States Food & Drug Administration has prohibited the consumption of 7 Synthetic Flavoring Agents from the food additives list. Additives are used mainly for adding or enhancing flavors in various products, such as ice cream, cookies, and all other foods & beverages.

The 6 banned chemicals, viz., synthetically-derived Benzophenone, Ethyl Acrylate, Eugenol Methyl Ether (Methyl Eugenol), Myrcene, Pulegone, & Pyridine, were listed as artificial flavors on food labels, owing to which consumers never recognized them. The use of these flavors showed that they were causing cancer in laboratory animals. Additionally, the seventh substance, styrene, was restricted due to its no use in the food industry. As a result, the government initiative mentioned above is a healthy indicator expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for the Global Natural Flavoring Agents Market in the coming years.
