Report Highlights

In terms of revenue, biotech flavor ingredients accounted for a share of 38.44% in 2019. Flavors can be classified as natural flavors and artificial flavors. Natural flavors are usually sourced from edible essential oils, oleoresins, essence or extract from fruits/fruit juices, spices, vegetables/vegetable juices, herbs, roots, and buds. Artificial or synthetic flavors come from inedible sources, such as petroleum or paper pulp, which are processed to produce aroma chemicals for different flavors.

The natural flavors are difficult to extract and are both time consuming and expensive. Besides, their production is dependent on various factors, such as temperature and climate. Thus, these drawbacks have led the directed research & development teams of the companies to develop different strategies for producing the natural flavor compounds.

In terms of revenue, Europe dominated the biotech fragrance market with a share of 57.66% in 2019. Europe’s high priority for development of bio-based sector along with various strategies and policies to achieve sustainable economic growth is likely to foster the demand for biotech ingredients in the region.

Some of the oils such as patchouli, grapefruit, bitter orange, sandalwood, and rose are difficult to obtain naturally. According to the Chemical and Engineering News, biotech firms like Isobionics Allylix and Evolva have evolved a biotechnological way of genetically engineering yeast and bacteria to produce these plant oils by fermenting sugars.
The skin care segment held the largest share of 51.49% in 2019. Rising global population, along with increasing interest in physical appearance, has led to the growth of the cosmetics market worldwide. Moreover, mounting concerns for aging skin and need for an evenly toned skin are likely to contribute to this growth, which, in turn, is boosting the growth of the global cosmetic ingredients market.
