Flavor and Fragrance Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)

The flavor and fragrance market was valued at USD 3024.3 million in 2020, and it is estimated to register a CAGR of 5.91% during the forecast period (2021 - 2026).

The COVID-19 impact on the industry was evident during the initial few months of market lockdowns, followed by supply chain disruptions. However, countries rapidly adjusted their systems with the crisis and made the agricultural and food sector running during the pandemic, leading to a quick recovery of the industry sales.

The overall flavor industry runs over consumer demand to experience the most nuanced and subtle flavor in food, with the taste being the most specific factor influencing the purchase decision of a consumer. The organization reveals that the importance of taste has increased since 2018, with about 86% of consumers choosing taste over other food attributes prior to their purchase.

In the fragrance application, consumer goods are projected to be the largest segment. The rise in disposable income and changing the lifestyle of consumers are fuelling the demand for high-end cosmetics, detergents, soaps, perfumes, and other household and personal care products. This, in turn, is contributing to the overall growth of the consumer products segment. The spending pattern of consumers in developing countries has been increasing, especially in recent years. This trend is expected to drive the market in developing nations further.

Key Market Trends Growing Demand for Smoked Flavors and Compounded Flavors

According to FONA International Inc., more than 193 smoke-flavored products were introduced in 2016, exceeding the 2015 figures, and the product launch is expected to witness a double-digit growth rate during the forecast period.

Additionally, key players in food flavors are also focusing on developing natural smoked flavors to cater to the demand for natural flavors in the market. In 2017, Bell Flavors & Fragrances developed a number of smokeless smoke flavors, which it calls "a natural alternative to traditional liquid smoke" that can be customized.
