  • The growing popularity of US food products abroad boosted industry exports
  • New product introductions that incorporate spices are expected to drive revenue growth
  • Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    The Seasoning, Sauce and Condiment Production industry revenue grew over the past five years thanks to ncreased demand for its products and a rise in per capita disposable income. However, due to higher input costs, manufacturers raised their product prices to maintain earnings, which led to restrained revenue growth over the period. In the five years to 2021, the industry is expected to grow at a slightly faster pace than in the previous five years. Higher disposable income levels will drive demand as consumers dine out more and purchase more products at the retail level. In addition, new products and clever marketing strategies will drive revenue growth.
