Overview of the global apple cider vinegar market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global apple cider vinegar market to grow at a CAGR of more than 10% between 2016 and 2020.  Apple cider vinegar is extensively used for its various health benefits. Besides its use in preparing salad dressings, marinades, vinaigrettes, food preservatives, and chutneys, vinegar is also consumed as dietary supplements owing to its medicinal value. Apple cider vinegar drink comprises several essential nutrients that are critical for energy production, digestion, and food metabolism. It is also helpful for heart and health and reduces cholesterol levels. It contains polyphenols such as chlorogenic acid, which prevents the oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and helps in avoiding cardiovascular diseases. Besides health benefits, apple cider vinegar has extensive applications for household purposes, especially as a non-toxic household cleaner. Also, people are using it as a natural preservative as it inhibits bacterial growth in food products and averts spoilage. With the growing usage of apple cider vinegar, several manufacturers are also focusing on widening their product lines, which will play a significant role in boosting the growth prospects for the market over the next four years.

The market is witnessing growing consumer interest in using apple cider vinegar to boost pets’ health. Several pet owners are adding apple cider vinegar to their dog's diet to improve digestion, combat yeast infections, clear tear stains, recover joint health, and to provide relief from common allergies such as itchy feet or ears. The apple cider vinegar-based shampoo helps in enhancing the fur quality, skin, and odor of dogs. Also, it helps in alleviating muscle sprains, soreness, and fatigue in dogs. Apple cider vinegar is also beneficial for cleansing toxins from a cat’s body as the natural acidity in the vinegar aids in digestion and the pectin assists in maintaining the good shape of its intestines.
