Floral Flavour Market

2019 Analysis and Review of Floral Flavour Market by Product - Natural, Organic, and Synthetic for 2019 - 2027

Natural Floral Flavours to Capture 2/3rd of Total Revenue

Popularization of trends such as natural, clean-labelled food consumption has caused a radical upheaval in the F&B industry, which in turn, has potentially raised the demand for natural floral flavours. Accounting for relatively high revenue share, manufacturers have specifically targeted this category over artificial floral flavours.

In addition, strong focus has been placed on organic variants, as a response to mounting concerns regarding the use of chemical-based ingredients in F&B products. Moreover, new companies positioning themselves as cleaner and greener alternative to mainstream flavours are rapidly growing in number.

APEJ to Overtake Developed Markets by 2024

While growth prospects of the floral flavour market remained high in the U.S. and EU5, the market in Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) would acquire the leading position by 2024. Led by China and India, the regional food industry continues to defy gravity and is clearly following the evolving consumer trends such as natural ingredients and clean products.

With consumers in this region focused on better-for-you products, FMI expects a surge in demand for natural and organic floral flavours in the following years. Abundance of raw materials and unique ecological diversity are further working to the advantage of market players.

Floral Flavours - Not Just Flash-in-the-Pan Fad

Floral flavours have been in trend within the foodservice and processed food sectors. They remain among the most important and unique product features that determine the success or failure of a particular offering, amid competition. In order to stay ahead of the curve and fulfill consumer interest in cuisines from other countries, F&B manufacturers are increasingly incorporating floral flavours in their products. Such strategic moves are a solid indication that the trend is here to stay, and the market is set for a quantum leap in growth.

How Growth will Unfold

Worldwide use of hibiscus in new food and beverage products is on a significant rise, attributing to its natural origin and slightly tangy profile. Consumers are further drawn to hibiscus for its certain health benefits in lower body temperature and cholesterol levels.

In addition, as consumers’ quest for authentic and unconventional taste experiences is increasing, floral flavour manufacturers are exploring untapped potential of other raw materials. While demand for rose is rapidly increasing, manufacturers are focusing on increasing the production of elderflower and chamomile-based flavours to capitalize on growing popularity of fusion and plant-based beverages.
