Consumer perception of the health value of natural versus artificial flavoring has been the primary driver of this trend, leading the industry revenue to grow over the five years to 2016. These trends will continue to benefit the industry over the next five years, specifically by increasing consumer preference for natural food additives over artificial food additives and increasing demand from large food processing companies that make a definitive move to remove artificial coloring from their products.

This industry develops and produces substances, liquids or powders that are added to a food or drink to change its color.
