Market Dynamics

Significant Driver: Rising Propensity of the Customers to Opt for Exotic & Aromatic Foods to Fuel the Market Growth

The demand for non-natural flavoring agents has been significantly rising in various parts of the world specifically in nations such as India, Egypt, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, etc., owing to the growing adoption of exotic and aromatic food items. Additionally, the rising shift of customers in these regions to try delicious food as well as change in lifestyle remains the major reason behind the notable usage of non-natural flavoring agents by food & beverage manufacturers.

Moreover, the growing tourism in Middle Eastern countries like Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE, have also been resulting in the considerable usage of non-natural flavoring agents by the manufacturers of ice cream, sweet, soups & sauces, etc., to please tourists. For instance, as per the ‘Government of Dubai’, tourism in the UAE ramped up by 32% in 2021 in comparison with 2020. Whereas in Qatar, tourism grew by 5% in 2021 in comparison to 2020 reported by the government of Qatar.

Therefore, the rising influx of tourism in the regions like the Middle East, Asia Pacific, etc., along with the growing preferences by consumers to opt for food items enriched with exotic flavors are predicted to amplify the growth of the Global Non-Natural Flavoring market in the coming years.  

Possible Restraint: Health Concerns Among Individuals Related to Chemical Additives in Food Products to Restrict the Growth

Some of the negative impacts of consuming non-natural flavoring agents on health such as allergic reactions, asthmatic symptoms, fatigue, nausea, etc., have been limiting the market growth. In line with this, the negative side effects of consuming non-natural flavoring agents insisted that food & drug regulatory authorities remove some of the non-natural flavors from the market. For instance, in 2018, the US Food & Drug Administration announced to remove of six non-natural flavoring substances from the market which include synthetically-derived benzophenone, ethyl acrylate, eugenyl methyl ether (methyl eugenol), myrcene, pulegone, and pyridine. As these food additives have been found to induce cancer in humans or animals at any dose.
