Growing demand for savoury flavours and increasing demand for flavoured drinks are the major factors boosting the flavour type segment during the period of assessment

Demand for encapsulated flavours in convenience food has grown rapidly and continues to increase at a significant rate. In developed markets, preference for readymade meals, savoury soups and snacks is increasing, leading to higher demand for spicy, ethnic and exotic flavours. The addition of spicy and exotic flavours to existing product lines continues to be one of the key strategies adopted by global manufacturers to attract consumers' attention in more mature markets of the U.S. and Canada. Growing prevalence of ethnic food and drinks has led to the incorporation of hotter, spicier and more striking flavour profiles, thereby driving revenue growth of the flavour type segment in the global encapsulated flavours market.

The trend towards natural, wholesome and healthy products is increasing, but poor properties of these ingredients are major challenges in the food industry. To avoid such issues, companies are focussing on trapping the original flavour of the products by encapsulating it using different techniques. The addition of flavours in different types of food products such as biscuits, cookies, and ice-creams is preferred by consumers these days, which is also expected to increase demand for encapsulated flavours. Moreover, growing health awareness and time constraints along with the ensuing demand for functional and convenience foods is expected to continue to fuel the growth of the flavour type segment.

Consumers have started preferring fizzy and flavoured drinks that are expected to lead to an upsurge in revenue growth of the flavour type segment across the assessed regional markets. Due to the known poor health effects of artificial flavours, consumers have opted to switch to drinks that contain artificial flavours. Health conscious individuals are preferring plant-based drinks over other beverages. This is a major factor that is anticipated to drive revenue growth of the flavour type segment.

Global Encapsulated Flavours Market Structure

The global encapsulated flavours market is primarily characterised by the presence of a large number of regional and multinational companies that operate in the global market. An approximate share of 70%-75% is accounted for by multinational players, who are also the price regulators of the market. North America and Western Europe are the two main regions targeted by these companies due to increasing number of health conscious consumers and a growing demand for food and beverages in the market.

Development of cost-effective encapsulation methods is a key focus area for players in this market, both at international as well as regional levels. Recently, Tatsetech Ltd. has developed a menthol flavouring solution for confectionery and chewing gum. The flavouring is offered in free-flowing powder form with no re-crystallisation. According to our analysts who have recently come up with a new publication titled “Encapsulated Flavours Market: Global Industry Analysis (2012-2016) and Opportunity Assessment (2017–2027),” there is need to efficiently blend ingredients while ensuring taste, flavour and shelf-life stability of finished products. Companies also need to focus on enhancing encapsulation technology for enhanced product life in applications such as dairy products, beverages and animal nutrition products. It has been observed that manufacturers also have to focus on developing innovative products while complying with regulations for food grade material usage. In order to offer the cost advantage to companies, local players have started offering encapsulation technology at comparatively lower prices, primarily in countries such as China and India. In addition, growing demand for functional food products in these countries is projected to increase options for various new entrants in the global market in the near future. Companies are developing products in accordance with demand from varied applications such as developing encapsulated systems to offer two different flavours in chewing gums. This is intended to offer distinct taste and flavour to consumers.

We have observed that the encapsulated flavours market in APEJ offers relatively high potential growth opportunity, followed by North America and Western Europe. The growth of the market in APEJ is attributed to rising investments by companies in the encapsulation industry for packaged food. International companies in Western Europe are focussing on innovative manufacturing technologies. This is predicted to fuel market growth during the forecast period.

Some of our key observations during the analysis of this market

GDP growth is one the important macro-economic factors that positively impacts the encapsulated flavours market. Emerging and developing economies are expected to contribute significantly to global economic growth. The economies of Latin America, South East Asia, Eurasia and the Middle East and Africa are expected to witness gradual growth. On the other hand, global warming is adversely affecting the availability of raw material required for flavour production. Some plants grown under lower temperature may be less likely to offer spices required for the production of spice flavour. The quality of raw material is also affected by the temperature variation. The quality of the raw material is the most important parameter for natural and organic encapsulated flavour production, which is trending the global market.
