Market Dynamics

Market Growth will be Driven by Rising Consumer Demand for Natural Food Colorants

To create goods that meet consumer demand, market vendors have been doing research and development (R and D) efforts. For instance, Divi Laboratories Ltd., a producer of vitamin and carotenoid ingredients used in food and beverage, introduced its new product, CaroNat, in September 2021. Beta-carotene is present in the concentrated carrot juice used to make CaroNat. Some of the largest food corporations have pledged to use fewer artificial food colorings.

Compared to other color-imparting materials like pigments, dyes have a high selective absorptivity for liquids and substrates. When applied to substrates, colors’ excellent absorption qualities cause them to lose their structural and physical characteristics. In the coming years, the consumption of dyes is anticipated to increase significantly due to the development of economies like those in China, India, Brazil, and Indonesia.
