The GCC saffron market is projected to exhibit a growth rate (CAGR) of 10.5% during 2023-2028. The diverse product applications in various industries and advancements in farming techniques, along with the expansion in the food and beverage (F&B) industry and the rising demand for natural ingredients represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Saffron, revered as a spice of immense value, originates from the stigmas of the Crocus sativus flower, a plant belonging to the Iridaceae family. Its vibrant color, unique flavor, and potential health benefits contribute to its prestige in culinary and medicinal applications worldwide. The labor-intensive process of harvesting, which requires the handpicking of stigmas from individual flowers, primarily at dawn, lends to its high cost and the moniker "Red Gold." Saffron threads emanate an exotic, honey-like fragrance that is as enigmatic as it is enticing. When it comes to flavor, saffron offers a complex profile, a blend of sweet, floral, and earthy notes that is extensively cherished in the culinary world. In addition to this, it is known for its vibrant hue, ranging from bright orange to deep red. Besides its culinary virtues, saffron also boasts potential health benefits, from antioxidant properties to mood enhancement. Despite its hefty price tag, the fascination with saffron continues unabated, making it an embodiment of luxury, wellness, and the extraordinary gifts of nature. Saffron finds extensive applications in various industries, such as culinary, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and beauty, textile, beverage, perfume, traditional medicines, and agriculture.
