Market Highlights

Global Food Colorants Market has witnessed continued growth over the last few years and is projected to grow by USD 1,805.6 Million from 2018 to 2025 at a CAGR of 5.4%. Food colorants are natural or synthetic additives used to impart the desired color to food products and beverages. Manufacturers of food colorants are focusing on organic and natural colorants to exploit the growth opportunities generated by the changing consumer preference to natural and organic products. Various studies conducted in public interest have concluded that these artificial or synthetic colors pose a threat to consumer health. These have changed consumer perception significantly toward the use of synthetic food colors. According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest, food colorings can lead to hyperactivity, behavior problems, and allergies in children. Many of these synthetic food colors are also linked to tumors, chromosomal damage, asthma, and various other health hazards. This has resulted in the demand for a ban on artificial food colors by consumers.

The consumption of food colorants is increasing across the globe owing to its pleasant flavor and medicinal properties. The growth of the global food colorant market is driven by the high demand for functional beverages and the availability of several flavor variants.
