Outlook of the food additives market in the US

A growing preference for convenience and packaged food is one of the key factors driving the growth of the food additives market in the US. Ready-to-eat and processed food products, such as canned cereals, ready-to-cook meals, and dehydrated soups, require very less cooking and clean-up time, leading to an augmented demand globally.

In this market report, analysts have estimated factors like the increasing demand for food flavors and taste enhancers to impel the prospects for market growth until the end of the forecast period. Health-conscious consumers are increasingly demanding for more natural additives in place of artificial additives, which will aid in the growth of this market over the predicted period. Also, with increasing consumption of packaged food, food manufacturers are demanding customized flavors and enhancers from food additive vendors to develop new varieties of food with unique flavors, which will propel the growth prospects of the food additives market in the US.
