Mayonnaise is a thick and creamy sauce prepared using egg yolks, oil, vinegar or lemon juice, and various seasonings. It is an emulsion which is produced by slowly adding one ingredient to another, and simultaneously stirring the mixture. Nowadays, mayonnaise has emerged as a popular condiment, which is used as a spread for sandwiches or burgers, dips for snacks, and base for tacos or rolls. Apart from this, it is utilized as a base for making other sauces, such as tartar sauce and thousand-island salad dressing. Mayonnaise also offers several health benefits when consumed in moderation, such as lowering cholesterol levels, assisting in nutrient absorption, and improving heart health.

With a significant change in the lifestyles and eating habits, consumers now prefer affordable, convenient and quick meals which require minimal cooking. Owing to this shift in eating habits, along with the versatility and taste of mayonnaise, it is used as a spread for bread, sandwiches and burgers, a dip for snacks and a base for rolls and tacos. It also enhances the taste of raw vegetables due to which it is used in salads as a dressing. However, a significant shift toward vegan diets and increase in health-consciousness among consumers has prompted manufacturers to produce egg-less, vegan, low-fat and organic mayonnaise variants. They have also introduced multiple flavors, including cheese, mint, tangy pickle, chipotle and tandoori, to cater to the diversified tastes and preferences of an extensive consumer base. Other factors contributing significantly to the market growth include growing westernization and acceptance of world cuisines and the proliferation of online retail stores aiding in smooth product distribution across the globe.
