Organic Foods Demand Help Boost the Natural Food Colorants Market

Consumer demand for organic food has been high for more than a decade,
according to major retailers all over the globe. According to retailers,
like Tesco, organic sales in their stores have risen by 15% in the past
year (2017). Consumers are more aware of the kind of products available
in the market, and most consumers, in developed regions, look at the
labels before purchasing food products.

Food manufacturers are also constantly improving their products to match
the changing standards of consumers, by eliminating synthetic colors in
their products. This also serves as a strategy to improve their market
share globally, and gain competitive advantage. The number of consumers,
who are becoming health conscious, has grown exponentially over the
years, and has, thus, created huge demand for organic products,
including natural food colorants.

Consumers are increasingly concerned about what is in their food, which
has led to a growing demand for products made from natural sources and
fewer synthetic additives. Thus, the demand for natural colorants in
bakery applications is expected to witness substantial growth. Colorant
manufacturing companies have noticed this trend, and have specially
developed natural colorants to overcome the challenges bakery
manufactures face by providing a light stable, vibrant, and bright color
profile for the bakery products.

The beverage segment accounts for a substantial market share for natural
colorants. According to Naturex, of the total drink launches in the
United States, 50% drinks used natural sources for coloring.
