Spices and Seasonings Market Trends

  • Rising veganism and vegetarianism trend to boost the market growth

Vegetarianism and veganism are part of a tendency that is expanding fastly. The vegan population in the US and the UK has grown significantly. Many spices and seasonings previously utilized in the meat processing industry are now utilized in vegetarian alternatives. This trend contributes to the expansion in spice demand. Plant-based diets are becoming increasingly popular across the globe. The companies are focusing on new product launches, specifically for the vegan and vegetarian population, to take advantage of this new trend. For instance, in January 2022, Watson's Seasoning Blends, a Los Angeles-based female and minority-operated brand, released a new line of vegan gourmet spice blends that make it easy to make delectable plant-based meals. With the rise of plant-based alternatives and a slight decrease in meat consumption, spice and herb producers can create more creative flavor seasoning combinations. Additionally, the rising use of spices and seasonings by vegan masses as meat substitutes has enhanced the spices and seasonings market CAGR across the globe in recent years.

Further, digitalization is becoming more important in procuring spices and seasonings. Sensors, digital tools, and online activities are new trends to make the entire supply chain more transparent and sustainable. Many farmers worldwide utilize digital technologies such as smartphones, sensors, drones, and satellites. These technologies offer a variety of solutions for spice and herb producers, including remote measurement of soil conditions, improved water management, pest and disease emergence forecasts, and crop monitoring. In April 2021, the Netherlands Space Office funded the SpiceUp project on digital agriculture. The project combines advanced satellite technology, information technology, and the internet to assist black pepper producers in Indonesia. It also developed the SpiceUp smartphone application to support different actors in the black and white pepper chain. Thus, the increasing digitalization projects for producing spices and seasonings in various emerging economies are expected to boost the growth of the spices and seasonings market revenue.

However, many consumers in the US are becoming increasingly fond of cooking at home. Thus, the sales of various spices and seasonings, such as pepper and ginger, have surged. Various campaigns and initiatives to encourage people in the country to cook more meals at home to reduce stress have propelled the growth of the market for spices and seasonings.
