Revenue growth of the global floral flavour market is attributed to rapid growth in the food and beverages industry

The floral flavour market across the globe and particularly in the APEJ region is growing at a significant rate, attributed to increasing demand for floral flavours in products such as snacks, dairy, bakery, sponges, milkshakes, icings and fillings and biscuits. APEJ accounts for relatively high value share in the global food and beverages industry and this is expected to drive the growth of the floral flavour market in the region.

In the food and beverage industry, flavours are used in most of the raw materials. Flavours find application in food products such as confectionaries and bakery products as well as in other non-food products such as cigars and tobacco. For instance, hibiscus is being used across the alcoholic as well as the non-alcoholic beverages category in generic form or in blends as a cocktail. Floral flavours are included in a range of nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals products including sports drinks, health drinks and health bars.

Rising interest in natural foods and growing awareness of the potential health benefits of botanical ingredients is boosting the demand for natural floral ingredients and flavourings. Food and beverages companies in Eastern Europe are offering products containing antioxidants and flavonoid; which in turn is creating a growing demand for floral flavours in the global market. Also, consumer tastes are increasingly becoming internationalised from the traditional rice and meat dishes to include a varied platter comprising confectionaries, bakery products and healthy beverages such as sports drinks and herbal teas. This rising trend of shifting consumer preferences has a relatively high impact on the floral flavour market as international food manufacturers are targeting this type of consumers to market their floral flavoured products.
