Asia Pacific Market to Retain Longstanding Lead in Global Seasonings and Spices Market

The global seasonings and spices market can be segmented into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, and Rest of the World on the basis of the regional distribution of the market. Of these, Asia Pacific has always remained the leading producer and consumer of spices, with the prosperous spice trade across Southeast Asia being an important factor in European imperialism in the 17th and 18th centuries. The APAC seasonings and spices market held a 66% share in the global market by volume in 2012 – expected to rise to 69% by the end of the aforementioned forecast period.

By value, the Asia Pacific market is the second largest market, accounting for 31% of the global market in 2012, following the Europe market's 35% share. This is due to the heavy amount of indigenous consumption of seasonings and spices in Asia Pacific, whereas European countries are highly dependent on spice imports and thus account for a significant share of high-value transactions in the market.
