Overview of the global natural and synthetic food color market

The global natural and synthetic food color market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period. The high demand for processed food is driving the growth of this market.

The natural food color segment is expected to dominate the market with Europe and APAC emerging as the fastest growing regions within this market. This shift in trend is largely due to the stringent government regulations concerning the safety issues arising from usage of synthetic food colors. For instance Blue #1, used in candy, sports drink, and cereals, is banned in countries like Norway, Finland, and France as it causes brain cancer and hinders cell development in nerves. As a result of the health concerns regarding synthetic food colors, manufacturers are now focusing on exploring natural alternatives for synthetic colors.

Segmentation of the global natural and synthetic food color market by geography

  • North America
