Besides enhancing the food taste, consumers are increasing spice consumption due to their multifarious health benefits. Moreover, the preference for organic and clean-label products is providing massive traction to the herbs & spices market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

In the initial months of the COVID-19 pandemic, massive downswings in the food & beverage sector were recorded, attributed to the imposition of nationwide lockdowns. This significantly hampered the growth prospects of the herbs & spices market. Gradually, this downswing has experienced a slight improvement as lockdowns are being relaxed.

In the past few months, consumers have shifted toward consuming more plant-based products, including spices, to strengthen their immunity and counter the pandemic. Therefore, demand has surged, compelling manufacturers to undertake supply chain risk management. Also, farmers have increased spice production, countering any supply shortages.

Thus, a V-shaped growth curve is anticipated to prevail throughout the forecast period, with growth eventually picking up pace in the latter half of 2021.

Competitive Intelligence

The presence of several small and mid-sized players has rendered the market fragmented over a long time. Prominent players are concentrating on product innovations, mergers & acquisitions and expansion of productive capacities.

For instance, in 2017, Dohler GmBh collaborated with Fraunhofer ICT-IMM to examine how microfluidic solutions can assist beverage manufacturers in detecting microorganisms in their formulations. This helps vendors ensure that product quality is maintained and consistently recorded.

To ensure that restaurants remain functional during the pandemic, McCormick and Company Inc. has partnered with the Maryland Restaurant Relief Fund and provide financial aid to multiple eateries. This ensures that the supply of food is not hampered across households.

In 2018, Kerry Group plc announced the acquisition of Fleischmann’s Vinegar Company Inc. and AATCO Food Industries LLC in order to expand the spices product portfolio.
