Consumer Trends and Growth in Underlying Applications Will Drive
Gains in Food and Beverage Natural Colors

US demand for food and beverage natural colors is forecast to rise 7.7%
annually through 2021. Gains will be supported by all-natural, organic,
and non-GMO trends within the food and beverage markets. Growth in the
underlying applications will also impact demand.

Red & Yellow Natural Colors to Remain Largest Food & Beverage
Natural Color Types

Together, red and yellow natural colors are forecast to account for 44%
of total demand, supported by their widespread use in food and beverage
applications, in particular beverages. The fastest growth will be seen
for blue & green natural colors, supported by development of new
products with increased stabilities. Declining carbonated soft drink
production and increasing concerns surrounding the health impact of
caramel colors will impact growth of demand for brown natural colors,
restraining further gains in demand.

Growth in Beverages Demand Impacted by Declining Soft Drink

Beverages are forecast to remain the largest market in 2021, accounting
for one-third of overall demand. However, this market will post among
the slowest gains, as declining production of soft drinks -the
largest segment for natural colors in the beverages market-
demand for natural colors, in particular brown natural colors. Candy and
confections and other applications including products marketed toward
children -such as breakfast cereals and snack packs- are
expected to experience the fastest growth, as food and beverage
manufacturers respond to consumers' demand for clean label products.
