Spices refer to the food additives that are primarily used for flavoring, coloring, or preserving food items. They are usually manufactured by processing a wide range of aromatic seeds, dried fruits or vegetables, roots, barks, etc. Spices offer exquisite aroma, texture, and taste to food without adding any extra fat or calories. India currently represents one of the largest producers of spices in the world. Some of the common spices that are widely available in the country, include chili, turmeric, coriander, tamarind, cumin, mustard, fenugreek, etc.

The increasing demand for innovative flavors, authentic cuisines, and ethnic tastes in foods and snacks is augmenting the market for spices in India. Additionally, a significant growth in the food processing industry along with hectic work schedules and sedentary lifestyles of the consumers are also propelling the demand for convenient food options. As a result, the growing utilization of spices in processed and ready-to-eat food products is further driving the market growth in the country. Apart from this, the expanding HoReCa sector in India is also bolstering the market growth. Moreover, the increasing penetration of western food trends is further catalyzing the demand for a variety of newer spices. Additionally, the Indian government has introduced stringent regulations to curb the adulteration of spices, thereby inducing the production of safer product variants. Furthermore, the rising consumer concerns towards the negative health impact of synthetic additives in spices are augmenting the demand for natural and organic spices in the country.
