The global food colors market is anticipated to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period owing to growth in food and beverage industry and increasing demand for food colors from bakery and confectionary sector. The increasing need for product improvisation in terms of product appeal is also leading to escalating demand for food colors.

Food colors are dyes or pigments permitted for adding colors in foods. They are added to food and drinks to create a specific appearance.  The growing number of hotels, cafes and restaurants are also leading to increasing demand for food colors. The market is poised to undergo a healthy growth with increasing globalization and inclination of consumers towards fancy food products.

Global food colors market can be segmented based on type, form, solubility, application and region. Based on type, the market is segmented into natural colors, synthetic colors and nature identical colors. The natural colors are further segmented into carmine, caramel, anthocyanins, carotenoids, chlorophyll, annatto and others. In 2020, the natural colors segment held the major share of the global food colors industry and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. The worldwide demand of natural food colors is rising because of the increasing consumer preference for organic label products. Further, strict food & beverage norms regarding the use of synthetic food colors are expected to have a positive impact in the worldwide natural food colors industry.

Regionally, Europe dominated the food colors market in 2020 owing to rise in consumption and production of food colors in the region as well as increased awareness of safe food color products among the consumers. However, the Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to witness the fastest growth in the global market for food colors during the forecast period due to the rising demand from the bakery & confectionery and processed food industries.
