Global Apricot Kernel Market to Grow at 4.17% During 2024-2032, Impelled by Widespread Demand for Natural and Herbal Ingredients

March 31, 2023 | Food & Beverages

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “­­Apricot Kernel Market Report by Type (Bitter, Sweet), Application (Edible, Medicinal, and Others), Distribution Channel (Hypermarkets and Supermarkets, Convenience Stores, Online Stores, and Others), End Use Industry (Food Industry, Cosmetic Industry, Pharmaceutical, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global apricot kernel market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.17% during 2024-2032. Apricot kernels are edible seeds of the apricot fruit. They are small, almond-shaped, and light brown in color, with a slightly bitter taste. Apricot kernels are rich in nutrients and minerals, such as zinc, magnesium, vitamins E and B6, and dietary fiber. They also contain a significant amount of healthy fats, including polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids. Apricot kernels are often used in cooking, particularly in Asian cuisine. They can be ground into powder and used to flavor savory dishes or make a spread. The oil is often used in salads and as a base for dressings. They exhibit anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties and are, therefore, extensively used to treat skin conditions such as eczema and acne. Apricot kernels are currently marketed in dried or oil forms.

Global Apricot Kernel Market Trends:

The increasing demand for natural and herbal ingredients, such as apricot kernel, due to shifting consumer preference for healthy diets and lifestyles is primarily driving the market growth. Besides this, escalating health concerns regarding the expanding prevalence of several lifestyle disorders, including obesity, diabetes, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), are fuelling product adoption across the globe. Moreover, the rising popularity of vegan food trends is facilitating the demand for apricot kernel-based snacks, oatmeal, muffins, jams, jellies, scones, and salads, which, in turn, is presenting lucrative growth opportunities for the market. Concurrent with this, the large-scale product employment in the baking industry for preparing apricot bread, amaretto cookies, and apricot-almond finger biscuits, among others, is contributing to the market growth. In addition to this, the widespread product utilization across the cosmetic and personal grooming sectors for producing face masks, scrubs, creams, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, and lip balms, on account of growing consumer preference for vegan and animal cruelty-free products is creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, the growing product adoption across the pharmaceutical sector due to their medicinal properties, rapid urbanization, inflating disposable incomes, and easy product availability through different distribution channels are influencing the market growth.
