Report Outlook

The global citrus seeds market was valued at USD 4.35 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period.

Consumption of vital components, which are needed for controlling human metabolism and digestion, has been driven by rising consumer knowledge of food safety.

The COVID-19 pandemic led to disruptions in the supply chain of the global citrus seeds market. This disruption resulted in delays, reduced availability, and increased costs of citrus seeds. The closure of restaurants, cafes, and other food service establishments during lockdowns and social distancing measures resulted in a decline in demand for citrus seed-derived ingredients used in the food service sector. This impacted the market for citrus seeds and related products.

However, the demand for citrus seeds and citrus seed-derived products experienced fluctuations during the pandemic. While there was an initial surge in demand for citrus fruits and their by-products, including citrus seeds, as consumers sought to boost their immune systems and increase their intake of healthy ingredients, the overall demand was affected by changing consumer behaviour and market uncertainties.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

Rapid Growth of Food & Beverages Industry

Ever expanding food and beverages industry is one of the prominent factors dynamically helping the citrus seeds market to broaden its global revenue. The food and beverage industry is witnessing continuous growth, with a rising demand for innovative and healthy ingredients. For example, in January 2020, the taste and nutrition firm Kerry, based in Ireland, recently announced the introduction of an improved citrus extract technology known as "New! Citrus Extract" that may be marketed as a natural extract and delivers flavours similar to traditional natural citrus. The extraction technology can be used to make a wide range of citrus fruits into a variety of beverages. Various food and beverage applications, such as flavourings, seasonings, oils, and extracts are contributing to the growth of the global market.

Augmenting demand for citrus fruits is another factor significantly helping the market to grow. Citrus fruits are widely consumed due to their nutritional value and health benefits, leading to increased cultivation and production of citrus crops.

  • For instance, the predicted 5 percent decrease in global orange production for 2022–2023 to 47.5 million tonnes is due to lower production in the European Union and the United States, which is only slightly offset by a greater harvest in Egypt.

As a result, the growing global demand for citrus fruits, such as oranges, lemons, and grapefruits, directly drives the demand for citrus seeds.
