Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said, “One trend in the market is the increasing demand for organic spices. The US is one of the largest markets for organic spices and seasoning and is expected to rise further during the forecast period. There is a resistance towards chemically produced or genetically modified products. Spices are being derived out of genetically modified and chemically stimulated plants to increase production.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is the use of spices in the perfume and cosmetics industry. Spices have found use in perfume and cosmetics industry as well, due to its aromaticity. Ceylon cinnamon is widely used in perfumes due to its exotic sweet smell. Saffron lends color and fragrance to perfumes. Clove bud oil is added to rose perfumes to give it a pleasing smell. Similarly, other spices like nutmeg are used in cologne for men and ginger oil in used in after-shave lotions.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is the adulteration of spices and seasoning. Food adulteration is a critical concern in the food industry. This practice is prominent in the spices industry, especially in ground spices, as the difference in quality is difficult to ascertain. In naturopathy drugs, different spices are utilized for their antimicrobial or health benefits. Adulteration of spices used in such drugs will bring down the effectiveness of such drugs and can also cause side-effects. Spices like turmeric, paprika, and ginger are regularly contaminated with sawdust. Lead chromate, a filler which is carcinogenic, is sometimes added to turmeric.
