Global Flavor and Fragrance Market Report
The flavor and fragrances (F&F) industry involves companies that develop and supply a variety of flavor and fragrance
ingredients and components to food and beverages, perfume, cosmetics, food industries as well as to the suppliers of household
products. All F&F companies need to adhere to stringent supervisory, regulatory and environmental standards. The demand for
consumer products using flavors and fragrances has been stimulated and broadened by changing social habits and economic
growth, especially in emerging markets. In the emerging markets, strong GDP growth and a significant expansion of the middle-
class consumer are expanding the demand for better-flavored and fragranced consumer products. Companies are developing
new formulas for flavors and fragrances to meet changing consumer preferences and customer needs.
During the year 2011, the F&F market growth was driven by currency fluctuations and rising raw materials prices. Many
companies have intentionally reduced their spending on R&D in order to compensate for the increase in raw material prices. The
F&F market is highly competitive. The industry has witnessed consolidation over the past few years as the share held by the top-
ten companies has consistently declined from 2007 to 2011. Givaudan is the market leader. Other prominent market players
