Since ancient times, herbs and spices have been employed to enhance human beauty. Herbal formulations have garnered significant attention due to their exceptional properties and the minimal or absence of side effects. Natural plant-based cosmetics are widely regarded as safe for use. Medicinal cosmetics, serving as a blend of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, aim to enhance skin health and beauty by preventing issues such as acne and wrinkles while also functioning as a sunscreen. These products contribute to improved skin texture by fostering collagen growth, countering the detrimental effects of free radicals, and promoting overall skin health.

In Southeast Asia, particularly among Indian women, the use of herbs like sandalwood and turmeric for skincare, along with the application of natural oils for fragrance, has been a longstanding tradition. However, this practice has gained traction in the United States and European countries in recent years. With an increasing number of consumers opting for natural products and embracing a sustainable lifestyle, this trend is anticipated to persist in the long term, drawing more consumers towards products with natural ingredients.

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic had a notable impact on the industry in the early months of 2020. Turmeric and its by-products manufacturers found themselves needing to hire additional staff, scale up production, and implement various operational changes to meet the surging demand for yellow turmeric as an immunity-boosting spice. This heightened demand particularly affected many developing countries, primarily in South Asia and India, which are key producers of herbs and spices. As a result, there was a shortage of raw materials in the spice industry. The industry faced a significant challenge due to labor shortages resulting from the migration of the workforce amid the lockdowns imposed by governments worldwide to mitigate the spread of the virus.

The preventive measures adopted for COVID-19 led to significant understaffing in key offices of the trade support structure. This resulted in delayed government approvals and challenges in completing physical documentation. Operating on the industry floor amid social distancing requirements posed difficulties, particularly in ensuring product safety. The control measures also led to a reduction in the availability of third-party laboratories for testing the quality and safety of products/raw materials, impacting small-scale production units without in-house testing facilities. Primary spice producers globally faced setbacks due to the withdrawal of marketing facilities, including the suspension of auctions and closure of wholesale markets, as a result of lockdown measures. The pandemic presented challenges for export businesses, with additional border controls disrupting established export supply lines. While the economic disruptions affected the entire industry, small-scale spice producers and processors were particularly hard-hit.

Curcumin Market Report Highlights

Consequently, the conventional segment is anticipated to retain a substantial market share during the forecast period, upholding its dominance in the foreseeable future.
