Beverage Ingredients: Regional Insights

Asia Pacific is the fastest growing market for the 13 key beverage ingredients, with a forecast CAGR of 6.4% from 2011-2016, just ahead of the Middle East and Africa with 5.6%. In contrast, the most developed regions will grow at CAGRs of under 1%.

The largest single markets are the US and China, with a combined share of 33% of beverage ingredient volumes. The top 10 markets overall represent 64% of global volume.

International distribution is vital to large ingredients firms in order to satisfy the needs of the world’s multinational beverage manufacturers, but a local presence is also key to understanding regional needs and to targeting innovative SMEs.

Developing markets demonstrate strength in depth for beverage ingredients. Total volumes are still growing strongly, ensuring continued demand for commodities, while tastes are diversifying, prompting rising interest in more value-added options.

Latin American markets are influenced by trends in North America, so future growth is expected in natural and healthy ingredients. Some strength remains in commodities, as the young population increases overall beverage consumption.

Health and naturalness are core issues in North America and Western Europe, and will have most influence on future ingredient development. The best opportunities will lie in new and innovative ingredients, and in new-generation end-use markets.
