by Nishtha Vohra Market Research Analyst
On the basis of the type, the sauces, dressings, and condiments market has been categorized into table sauces, cooking ingredients, dips, pickled products, pastes and purees, and others. Of these, table sauces saw the highest volume sales in the market, recording more than 30% share in 2017.

On the basis of distribution channel, the sauces, dressings, and condiments market has been categorized into supermarkets/hypermarkets, specialist retailers, convenience stores, and others. ‘Others’ include mixed retailers, and internet retailers, and non-grocery specialists such as health and beauty retailers. Of these, the fastest growth during the forecast period is expected from the ‘others’ category, ascribed to the boom in online sales.

At country-level, the U.S. held the largest revenue share in the global sauces, dressings, and condiments market, crossing 20% in 2017. The market in the country is expected to progress at CAGRs of 2.2% and 3.7%, in terms of volume and value respectively, during the forecast period. The market growth in the U.S. can be mainly attributed to the rise in disposable income and the growing inclination of consumers toward organic, and new and international flavors.

The preference for home-cooked meals among consumers is driving the growth of the cooking ingredients market, globally; for instance, a recent survey inferred that around 73% of the American adults cook at home at least four nights a week. Also, millennials are turning to home-based cooking due to growing interest in healthy eating and as a measure of cost saving, thus giving impetus to the cooking ingredients market worldwide.

Busy lifestyle, longer working hours, and rise in the number of people living alone in urban areas are the major factors contributing to the increasing demand for sauces, dressings, and condiments. This is because people leading hectic lifestyles seek easy cooking options and these products help in quick preparation of meals.

Key players in the sauces, dressings, and condiments industry are launching new products to gain a larger market share. For instance, in March 2018, Sir Kensington’s, now part of The Unilever Group, introduced four varieties of ranch dressings—avocado oil classic, Pizza Ranch, classic, and buffalo—at the Natural Products Expo West 2018.

Similarly, In September 2017, Kikkoman Corporation introduced a low-salt form of soy sauce, featuring soy peptide, a kind of protein that helps control blood pressure, targeting the age group of 40-year-olds and above. The company initially sold the product online and through mail orders, and started selling it via supermarkets across Japan, from February 2018.
