US flavor and fragrance demand will reach $4.6 billion in 2009. Gains will be supported by consumer interest in more complex and authentic tastes and smells, and by the need to mask unappealing flavors and aromas in active ingredients. Environmental fragrance goods will be the fastest growing market while food will remain the largest.
This study analyzes the US flavor and fragrance industry. It presents historical demand data for 1994, 1999 and 2004 and forecasts to 2009 and 2014 by market (e.g., food, cosmetics and toiletries, detergents and cleaners, environmental fragrance goods, beverages); and by product (e.g., flavor blends, fragrance blends, essential oils and natural extracts, aroma chemicals).
The study also considers market environment trends and indicators, evaluates company market share, and profiles 33 major producers including Givaudan, International Flavors & Fragrances, Firmenich, Quest, Symrise, Sensient, and Kerry Group.
