Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The rise in consumers’ disposable income levels in APAC bodes well for vendors of ready-to-eat meals, confectioneries, and baked goods. The demand for ready-to-eat meals, which use food colors extensively, has seen a significant increase in APAC over the past few years, especially in China and India. In India, the number of people who dine out has increased significantly; in 2013, the restaurant industry in the country was valued at $48 billion. The restaurant industry includes cafés, food chains, casual dining places, pubs, and fine dining restaurants. Food chains such as KFC add artificial colors to food to increase appeal. This is also contributing to the demand for food colorants in APAC and worldwide.”
According to the report, North America led the global market for food colors in 2014, primarily on account of the high demand for processed food in the region. Many consumers are preferring processed food because of their busy schedules. The market for processed foods is growing in both developed and developing countries. For instance, the processed food industry in India accounted for 32% of the total national food industry in the first half of 2015.
Further, the report states that high cost of natural food coloring ingredients is inhibiting the market growth.
