Food colors refer to chemicals made to improve the appearance of food by giving it artificial shine and color. They are even used in various brand salad dressings, smoked salmon colorings, and pickles, as well as in some medications. The bright colors of baked goods, sports drinks, and candy are due to the application of artificial food coloring. Food coloring is classified into natural food coloring, synthetic food coloring, and mixed food coloring. Food coloring is very widespread in everyday life and is also included in foods and drinks that we did not expect. These substances are added to food or drinks that change color to make them soluble in water. Natural food coloring is derived from a variety of vegetables, fruits, plants, minerals, and other natural food sources. Artificial colors are compounds that are used to add flavor and improve the appearance of foods or to improve the flavoring properties of foods.
The growing awareness of the health benefits associated with natural food colors is expected to drive the market for the next nine years as concerns about the efficacy of synthetic colors increase.
European population growth is expected to increase demand for food and beverages, likely to further increase demand for the product during the forecast period. As consumer awareness of exotic and traditional flavored products increases, the growing demand for fast food is expected to drive further market growth in the coming years. The regional market is expected to have low threat to new entrants due to its extensive portfolio and distribution network operated by existing players, which creates high entry barriers for new entrants. Growing consumer awareness of clean label products, the health risks associated with synthetic food colors, and the health benefits of using natural food colors are driving the demand for natural food colors over synthetic food colors. Synthetic pigments can cause allergic disorders among consumers. Using chemicals that contain heavy metals like lead or arsenic to make synthetic food coloring can cause life-threatening illnesses. Due to its natural origin, natural food coloring attracts consumers who see it as a "safe to use" product, attracting the attention of the European market. Natural colors reduce the risk of allergies and intolerances for the consumer. These factors are driving the demand for natural colors in food and beverage applications. The market is increasing its efforts to develop new products to develop high-tech products with excellent stability.
Growing health awareness, growing consumer purchasing power, and increasing instances of food contamination are driving demand for clean-labeled natural foods around the world. This growing demand has led to the launch of several new products with claims such as "natural". Due to food safety concerns related to chemical contamination of food and the adverse effects of synthetic additives, consumers are increasingly demanding clean-label products. As a result, food manufacturers are investing in clean labels, which in turn incorporate clean-labeled food colors to introduce new products or modify existing product portfolios. As consumer health awareness increases, demand for synthetic food colors is declining. As a result of the adverse effects of these colors on human health, food manufacturers are constantly looking for innovative ways to extract colors from alternative natural sources. The mixture of existing cultures and colorants provides great growth opportunities for the market by providing new sources of food colorant.
The main obstacle to the Europe food coloring market are health problems derived from the consumption of some synthetic pigments. Another factor may be the stability of natural colors that change with changes in atmospheric or processing conditions, such as pH, temperature, and light. Some natural colors begin to fade over time. Some natural colors can stain the final product during processing. Additionally, consumers face many challenges regarding the cost, process, application, and quality of natural ingredients. The natural ingredient extraction process is complex and time-consuming, natural ingredients are consumed to some extent, and the yield of high purity products is low. This factor is expected to hamper the growth of the Europe food color market in the coming years.
Global concerns about the coronavirus pandemic have had a negative impact on the global functioning of the food and beverage industry. While this pandemic is expected to have a negative impact on the market in the short term, food coloring prices are expected to rise in 2020 to overcome economic instability. The world has stalled with the arrival of COVID-19. The weakening of consumer demand for lifestyle and wellness products due to social constraints and closure policies has a negative impact on demand patterns in the food color market. However, restrictions on the resumption of economic activity in the consumer goods market and the ease of public discourse suggest that market demand for food coloring is imminent.
