Condiments Market Trends

  • Increase demand for vegan food items to boost the market growth

Condiments are among the things that customers frequently seek out since they are natural and healthy. They are increasingly more aware of and interested in things' origins and manufacturing processes. Consumers are embracing sustainable sourcing in affluent nations to safeguard product quality, supply chain security, and, most crucially, the livelihoods of those who cultivate the condiments. Market proportions of condiments produced responsibly are rising in various locations as sustainability certification of spices becomes more commonplace. According to FLOCERT, there were approximately 146 Fairtrade-certified businesses in the condiments industry in Europe in 2021. Expanding businesses is another factor driving the condiments market revenue.

Veganism and vegetarianism are parts of a rapidly growing trend. The total number of vegans in the U.S. and the U.K. has dramatically increased. Around the world, plant-based diets are becoming more and more well-liked. To capitalize on this new trend, businesses are concentrating on launching new products aimed at the vegan and vegetarian community. For instance, in January 2022, Watson's Seasoning Blends, a female- and minority-owned business based in Los Angeles, introduced a new line of vegan gourmet condiments blends that make it simple to prepare delicious plant-based meals. Therefore, veganism has enhanced the condiments market CAGR in recent years.

Condiments Market Segment Insights

Condiments Type Insights

The condiments market segmentation, based on type, includes spices, sauces & ketchup, dressings, and others. Given their expanding use in the food industry, spices are expected to hold a major market share in the condiments market. One of the main factors influencing the usage of spices is the rising demand for real food worldwide. While spices are primarily used nowadays for flavor and taste, they are also widely employed for their health advantages.  Additionally, in 2021, the sauces and ketchup sector witnessed significant growth.  The availability of a wide variety of flavor enhancer sauces has considerably boosted the condiments market for sauces due to technological improvements in the food business. Hence, rising applications of sauces positively impact market growth.

This product introduction has further broadened the growth opportunity for the condiments industry.

Condiments Packaging Type Insights

Based on packaging type, the condiments market segmentation has been segmented into bottles, pouches & sachets, and others. Bottle packaging dominated the condiments market. This domination can be linked to the widespread use of wet and ready-to-use sauces in Western countries such as Germany, the United Kingdom, and France. However, the pouches and sachets also experienced the fastest growth in the condiments market revenue. Product demand is expected to be driven by the availability of healthy options such as cholesterol-free and fat-free goods. These items are offered as bouillon cubes and semi-powders.

In 2021, store-based distribution accounted for a major share of all distribution channels.
