Flavor Enhancers Market

Flavour Enhancers from Natural Sources to Dominate, Surging at a CAGR of 6% through 2031: Fact.MR

Published : 01 Nov 2021 Industry: Food & Beverage

Newly published intelligence by Fact.MR states that the global market for flavour enhancers is likely to reach US$ 5.4 Bn, registering a CAGR of 5% throughout the assessment period 2021-2031. As consumers increasingly experiment with multiple food formulations, sales of natural and synthetic flavour enhancers are experiencing noteworthy uptake.

The market experienced steady growth from 2016 to 2020, clocking a CAGR worth 4%. As the novel coronavirus pandemic unfurled, consumers began relying less on synthetically manufactured foodstuffs, thereby broadening scope for naturally sourced ingredients, impelling sales of natural flavour enhancers. As of 2021, the flavour enhancers industry is slated to be valued at over US$ 3 Bn.

As for flavor enhancers, herbs and spices have traditionally been used as well as antimicrobial agents that prolong the shelf life of food products. MSG (monosodium glutamate) is a flavour enhancer that enhances the flavors in food. To enhance the savoury flavor of commercially produced food items such as frozen dinners, instant soups, and snack foods, these agents are frequently added to these food items.

Key Takeaways from the Market Study

  • Powdered flavor enhancers to remain top selling, surpassing US$ 3 Bn by 2031
