Rising Uses across Diverse Industries to Bolster Market Opportunities
While previously, the use of aroma chemicals was limited to the personal and household care sector, its expansion to the food and beverages and medical industries has spiked market opportunities. With the rising urbanization and growth in per capita income and spending, the demand for aroma chemicals is expected to rise especially in emerging nations such as India, China, Brazil, and Africa. “Rising income entails increasing willingness among consumers to spend on personal care products, which will create lucrative prospects for the aroma chemicals market,” said a lead TMR analyst.
Also the demand for natural fragrances is at all-time high as they are considered greener, safer, and more sustainable. While not all perceptions may be accurate, but they boost the demand for natural aroma chemicals derived from ingredients harvested from sustainably grown plants. This also connotes that the changing consumer lifestyle will have a positive influence on the overall market.
Stringent Regulations to Emerge as Key Challenge
On the downside, stringent regulation coercing companies to follow certain compliance policies is inhibiting the market’s trajectory. For instance, wastewater discharge during the production of various synthetic aroma chemicals consists of several biological oxygen compound. As regulations under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and Clean Air Act (CAA) impose various restrictions on the emission of VOC under federal laws, the production of aroma chemicals might get curtailed to an extent.
Nevertheless, increasing market penetration and investment towards product development, will help the aroma chemicals market overcome the aforementioned difficulties and register strong growth in the forthcoming years. Also with companies focusing on product diversification, consumers will have wider options to choose from. Spurred by these factors, the global aroma chemicals market will continue treading along a positive trajectory through the forecast period.
