Food Colors Market

Market overview:

Food colors are pigments, colors and additives that improve the visual appearance of both processed and fresh foods. Food colors also compensate for color loss caused by exposure to air, light, temperature fluctuations and humidity. They include components such as synthetic colors and natural colors. These are widely used in pharmaceuticals, confectionery, dairy products, packaged foods, bakery, beverages, cosmetics and others.

The change in lifestyle and globalization have led to an increase in the use of food colors in emerging markets. The global food colors market is likely to grow with the increasing demand for different cuisines. The natural colors are more preferred due to the consumer's inclination for healthy and nutritious diets. Growth should continue in the coming years with the introduction of new products, new sources of raw materials and the production of colors using cutting-edge technology.

To increase their appeal, food colors are introduced into food products or beverages. Pigments and dyes, in liquid form, liquid gel, paste and powder form are the most common dyes that are added to food and drinks. The global food colors market is motivated by its ability to increase attractiveness and understanding of the positive impacts of natural color products. For example, due to its antioxidant properties, betanin, a natural food coloring, is used. Likewise, red sandalwood offers wound healing characteristics and is used in Ayurvedic therapy. However, the ban on the trade of artificial colors hinders the development of the industry. R&D for sources of fresh raw materials offers food color suppliers innumerable development possibilities.

Recent developments in Food Colors Industry:

  • Sensient Technologies has launched three new food colors: organic black carrot, organic duck and organic beet. With this launch, the company has expanded its portfolio of natural food colorants.
  • WILD Flavors and Specialty Ingredients, which is a commercial division of ADM, has expanded its portfolio of natural food colors by adding food colors based on pumpkin extracts and a unique variety of carrots containing lycopene.
  • ADM started an innovation center in Singapore to support R&D activities in the Asia-Pacific region.
  • Chr. Hansen expanded its natural food color division to North America by acquiring a manufacturing facility for Banker Wire (United States).
  • Sensient Technologies acquired GlobeNatural (Peru). The acquired company is named as Sensient Natural Colors Peru S.A.C. (Peru).
