(Food-Beverage-News.Com, May 17, 2023 ) According to a research report "Food Colors Market by Type (Natural, Synthetic, and Nature-identical), Application (Food Products and Beverages), Source (Plants & Animals, Microorganisms, and Minerals & Chemicals), Form, Solubility and Region - Global Forecast to 2028" published by MarketsandMarkets, the food colors market is projected to reach USD 6.0 billion by 2028, growing from USD 4.6 billion by 2023 growing at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2023 to 2028.
The growth in the processed and packaged food & beverage markets directly impacts the growth of the food colors market. The processing of food products involves various practices, including thermal and non-thermal processes. These processes alter the characteristics of the original color of food products due to various process parameters, such as temperature, moisture, and pH. Due to these factors, the demand for food colors in processed food products is increasing to impart natural aesthetics.
The natural colors segment is the fastest growing among the various types of food colors during the forecast period.
The natural segment is projected to be the largest and fastest-growing by 2028. Natural colors witness significant demand as consumer preferences slowly transition toward clean, healthy, eco-friendly food ingredients. Additionally, natural food colors are extracted from fresh fruits and vegetables, providing additional health benefits. The natural colors widely used in the food industry include carmine, anthocyanins, caramel, annatto, carotenoids, chlorophyll, and spirulina. The use of synthetic colors in food products is limited and regulated by federal bodies of various countries, which also drives the demand for natural colors.
