Increasing consumer inclination towards clean labeled products will have a positive impact on the industry size. Rising disposable incomes and the rapid penetration of clean food trends across developed and developing economies, particularly across Europe are driving the demand for novel food additives. Moreover, the recent technological breakthroughs and innovations in plant-based food ingredients will complement the industry outlook. The significant rise in the number of clean labeled food manufacturers is offering lucrative scope for new product developments.

The rising adoption of healthier lifestyle choices for the overall fitness and well-being of consumers is further driving the demand for additive-free and preservative-free packaged foods, limiting the use of food additives. However, recent advancements in plant-based ingredients, enzymes, and nutrients will spur the industry demand.
