Furthermore, the growing popularity of home cooking and meal preparation has increased demand for pre-made sauces and condiments that can help to speed up the cooking process. As a result, manufacturers are innovating with new flavors, healthier options, and package designs to satisfy consumers' growing tastes and preferences, helping to the market's continuous growth.

While some segments, particularly shelf-stable and essential products like ketchup and pasta sauces, saw increased demand as consumers stocked up on pantry staples during lockdowns, the foodservice and hospitality sectors, which typically use a significant number of condiments, saw a sharp decline due to restrictions and reduced dining-out opportunities. Supply chain disruptions also had an impact on the market, producing difficulties in sourcing and production.
