Overview of Fragrance and Flavor Industry in India1

The Fragrance and Flavour (F&F) industry overall includes fragrances, flavours, essential oils, aroma chemicals and specialty aroma ingredients. The Food, Home, and Personal Care Industries are the largest consumers of flavours and fragrances. The beverages and confectionery industry segment drive the world flavours market and likewise increasing demand for cosmetics, household, and personal care products drives the fragrance industry. Trends indicate that the world F&F demand including essential oils, natural extracts, and aroma chemicals will rise 4.4% a year to reach $26.5 billion in 2016. The increasing consumer interest in natural products will drive value demand forward, as natural flavour and fragrance ingredients tend to be more expensive. Increasing packaged food manufacturing, and consumption of convenience products requiring higher flavour usage, will also drive faster growth especially in developing countries. Rising personal consumption expenditures in emerging economies will stimulate use of Home and Personal Care products contributing to industrial growth.

The use of turpentine oil and eucalyptus oil is not limited to fragrance industry only. These oils are widely used for medicinal purposes also.
