High Growth Opportunities Abound in East Asia

Regions such as Europe & North America are expected to hold prominent market shares in terms of value. However, the East Asia market for floral extract is expected to project lucrative growth over the forecast period of 2019-2029. Gains will remain propelled by the rapid growth of the cosmetic industry in the region, in the view of growing inclination towards personal grooming and increased disposable income available for purchasing high-end products.

According to the FMI’s research, a majority of key players in floral extract market are directing their investments in R&D on extraction techniques. While distillation and solvent extraction methods are widely adopted for various flowers, manufacturers are targeted towards supercritical fluid extraction method that not only reduces the energy consumption but also eliminates residual solvent in the resulting extracts.

Significantly high application potential of floral extracts is identified in fragrances, which accounted for ~42% in 2018. The rise of vegan perfumes in line with strong desire for cosmetics and fragrances to be cruelty-free will contribute to the overall sales of floral extract. Manufacturers are further exploring the capabilities of floral extracts as colorant and fragrance enhancer in skincare products as well as body care & toiletries.

Sensing an increase in direct sourcing of floral extracts to avoid intermediates in the supply chain, manufacturers are focusing on deepening their collaboration with cosmetic producers. In addition, leading players in the floral extract market are aiming to introduce their own product line of cosmetics and personal care.
