Demand for encapsulated flavours in convenience food has grown rapidly and continues to increase at a significant rate. In developed markets, preference for readymade meals, savoury soups and snacks is increasing, leading to higher demand for spicy, ethnic and exotic flavours. The addition of spicy and exotic flavours to existing product lines continues to be one of the key strategies adopted by global manufacturers to attract consumers' attention in more mature markets of the U.S. and Canada. Growing prevalence of ethnic food and drinks has led to the incorporation of hotter, spicier and more striking flavour profiles, thereby driving revenue growth of the flavour type segment in the global encapsulated flavours market.
The trend towards natural, wholesome and healthy products is increasing, but poor properties of these ingredients are major challenges in the food industry. To avoid such issues, companies are focussing on trapping the original flavour of the products by encapsulating it using different techniques. The addition of flavours in different types of food products such as biscuits, cookies, and ice-creams is preferred by consumers these days, which is also expected to increase demand for encapsulated flavours. Moreover, growing health awareness and time constraints along with the ensuing demand for functional and convenience foods is expected to continue to fuel the growth of the flavour type segment.
Consumers have started preferring fizzy and flavoured drinks that are expected to lead to an upsurge in revenue growth of the flavour type segment across the assessed regional markets. Due to the known poor health effects of artificial flavours, consumers have opted to switch to drinks that contain artificial flavours. Health conscious individuals are preferring plant-based drinks over other beverages. This is a major factor that is anticipated to drive revenue growth of the flavour type segment.
