Licorice Extract Market Drivers:

The increasing awareness among the population across the globe regarding the benefits of licorice extracts for the treatment of COVID-19 and the rapidly increasing forces by the cosmetic industry are the significant factors fueling the global licorice market growth in the upcoming years. Moreover, licorice extract is considered the oldest herbal remedy globally, which is produced from glycyrrhiza glabra. Licorice extract is a flavor ingredient used in a variety of foods and beverages. It's also used as a sweetener to make sure foods are sweeter. However, it isn't the only natural sweetener or food ingredient on the market. Stevia, a natural sweetener, is becoming increasingly extensively used and recognized. Anise is a naturally occurring plant with a taste that is quite similar to licorice. It is used to treat several ailments, used as a flavoring agent in sweets and candies, and drinks. In recent years, most of the world's population uses licorice roots to treat coughs, heartburn, acid reflux, bacterial and virus infections. It is also available as a capsule in the market. These are the primary factors that propel the global licorice extract market growth during 2021-2026.

Licorice Extracts Market Restraints:

The government regulations regarding declining the tobacco industry and the availability of various alternatives in place of licorice in the food and beverage sector are the essential factors that hamper the licorice extract market growth in the upcoming years. The government has declared several rules and regulations on the tobacco industry. It was in an idea of declining the tobacco sector since it harms the lives of many people. Keeping the safety of the people in view, the government has decided to slow down the tobacco industry, which in turn hinders the growth of licorice extract. On the other hand, licorice extracts are replaced by star anise, which offers the same flavor as licorice. Thus, declines the global licorice extract market growth in the near future.

Recent Developments in the Licorice Extract Market:

Norevo GmbH explains that its licorice paste is low-viscous and comfortable in handling. Moreover, like blocks or granules, it offers the advantages of dissolving faster and thoroughly. Thus, these are primarily used in the food and beverage industry.

MAFCO Worldwide LLC announced new Magna brand products used for multi-tasking and address the flavor-formulation problems. It also added that these brands are available in powder and liquid forms.

Challenges in the Licorice Extract Market:

Some of the world's population may be sensitive to licorice and experience various symptoms include congestive heart failure, absence of a menstrual period, erectile dysfunction, excess fluid in the lungs, fluid and sodium retention, high blood pressure, headache, hypertensive encephalopathy, hypokalemic myopathy, lethargy, muscle wasting, mineralocorticoid effects, swelling, tiredness, weakness, etc. According to a study, it is said that people who intake a massive amount of salt or 5-6 grams of licorice may suffer from these problems. Therefore, although licorice extract is considered safe as a food ingredient, it may possess the above-mentioned side effects. Thus, it slows down the global licorice extract market growth during the forecast period.
