Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The spices and seasonings market has observed wide developments over the last few decades, supported by factors such as increasing urbanization levels and changing lifestyles. According to the World Bank, in 2020, 56.15% of the total population is urban population. Besides, as per the United Nations, in 2018, urbanization is home to 55% of the world's population, which is anticipated to rise to 68% by 2050. Asia and Africa account for nearly 90% of this increase. India is expected to gain 416 million urban residents by 2050, China 255 million, and Nigeria 189 million.

As per the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), increased urbanization will have a variety of effects on people's eating habits and lives, not all of which are favorable. Even in the developing world, changes in diets, work, and leisure patterns - referred to as the "nutrition transition" - are already contributing to the primary factors underlying non-communicable diseases. Furthermore, the rate of change appears to be quickening, particularly in low- and middle-income countries.

The "nutrition transition" is characterized by dietary changes that are both quantitative and qualitative in nature. Additionally, people in the Asia Pacific are changing their eating habits due to rapid economic development, income growth, and urbanization. Traditional foods are increasingly being included in people's daily diets. In metropolitan regions, the market growth of retail outlets such as supermarkets & hypermarkets is likely to increase spice availability, which is expected to boost market demand for spices and seasonings. Consumer lifestyles have shifted due to urbanization.

Cooking time has decreased due to more employment options, higher discretionary income, and a growing number of working women. Working hours are long, and schedules are hectic, so people are looking for quick and easy ways to eat without spending a lot of time cooking. Thus, the rising urbanization and changing lifestyle as people are more engaged in working is the factor accelerating the spices and seasonings industry growth.
