Several companies are expanding their food and beverage lines to meet market demand by incorporating natural citrus extracts. For example, in April 2022, TREATT, a natural extracts and ingredient manufacturer, expanded its TreattClear, natural citrus extracts for the beverages industry, as citrus is a top trending ingredient-driven by an increasingly health-conscious population. The United States is North America's largest consumer of citrus extracts. Because of the population's increasing health consciousness, the product market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period, owing to the increasing demand for natural flavoring and fragrance agents in carbonated soft drinks, sports & energy drinks, fruit beverages, foods, and confectionery.

Because the confectionery industry is one of the major applications of citrus extracts in the food segment, demand for the same is increasing in the United States. Because of the extensive food and beverage market, the United States imports many citric fruits from Mexico, Chile, South Africa, and Peru. There are approximately 2,445 companies in the country, including NESTLÉ SA, COCA-COLA CO., and PEPSICO INC. This increase in imports is due to increased demand for citrus extracts in beverages. As a result, the region's increased demand for this product is rising.

The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has brought about several unexpected changes in the world economy, and its repercussions have been felt across all industries. The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the market because citrus was thought to be an important component in boosting the body's immunity against various infections. As a result, the demand for citrus-based foods and beverages increased, raising the extracts market demand. For Instance, citrus fruit prices in the European Union during the pandemic rose by 15-20%. In contrast, prices in Italy and Greece rose by 24% and 27%, respectively, due to increased demand and disrupted supply chains.

Orange segment accounted for the maximum revenue in 2021

This is because oranges have more vitamins and minerals than other fruits. Furthermore, concentrated orange extracts contain a significant amount of alcohol, which helps to extend their shelf life.

The carbonated soft drinks segment is accounted for the maximum revenue

People's health consciousness is driving an increase in the beverage industry for chemical-free, naturally flavored carbonated drinks. Kerry, a food company, launched a new non-thermal liquid extraction process in October 2020 to extract citrus from fruits more efficiently. This new method will produce highly concentrated extracts that can be used in place of citrus oils. It can be applied to a wide range of citric fruits, which have a variety of applications in flavored waters, herbal tea, juices, energy drinks, alcoholic beverages, and flavored spirits. This new technology will aid in the increased use of citrus extracts in the food and beverage industries, thereby increasing demand for the product.

The growing demand for the product in the food industry due to its strong flavoring properties, aroma, and nutritional benefits prompted several companies to enter this market. Major corporations such as Mars Wrigley, Ferrero Group, and Nestlé SA have launched product lines containing citrus extracts to meet rising market demand.

Europe accounted for the largest revenue in 2021

Europe dominated the market in 2021 owing to the expanding food and beverage industries in countries such as Germany, France, and the United Kingdom. Germany is the largest market for non-alcoholic beverages such as fruit and sports drinks. Europe is one of the largest markets for bakery products, with Germany, France, the United Kingdom, and Italy leading the way. Despite being a citric fruit producer, Europe imports approximately 40% of South Africa's total citric fruit production due to increased demand for citrus extracts as a natural strong flavoring agent in bakery items while adding nutritional value to the bakery products.

China is the world's largest producer and consumer of citric fruit. As of 2020, China's citric fruit production accounted for approximately 25-30% of the world's total citric fruit production.

China is the third largest confectionery and non-alcoholic beverage market.

According to FnB, India's food processing sector ranks sixth globally, accounting for 70% of total sales, 13% of exports, and 6% of industrial investment. As a result of this thriving food and beverage industry.

According to the World Data Atlas, the production of citric fruits in 2020 was 158 million tons, with oranges, lemons, and tangerines accounting for the majority of this total. According to the United States Department of Agriculture Foreign Agricultural Service, global orange production is expected to rise by 1.4 million to 48.8 million tons in 2021-2022, with Brazil, Turkey, and Mexico leading the way. This increased output is due to increased demand for orange citrus extracts in various industries due to their low cost and easy availability.
