Industry Dynamics

  • Growth Drivers
  • The growing trend of veganism and vegetarianism is expected to positively impact market growth.

The worldwide trend toward vegetarianism and veganism is rapidly expanding, marked by a significant surge in the vegan population in the U.S. and the U.K. Traditional spices once exclusive to the meat processing industry are now finding applications in vegetarian alternatives, fueling the demand for spices. The global rise of plant-based diets is prompting companies to introduce new products specifically designed for the vegan and vegetarian consumer base. Notably, Watson's Seasoning Blends, a brand based in Los Angeles, unveiled a range of vegan gourmet spice blends in January 2022, responding to the increasing desire for flavorful plant-based meals. With the growing popularity of plant-based options and a modest decline in meat consumption, spice and herb producers have the chance to develop inventive seasoning combinations. Additionally, the escalating use of spices among the vegan community as meat substitutes has positively impacted the overall growth of the global spices and seasonings market.
