It belongs to the Piperaceae family and is widely known as the king of spices owing to the high content of antioxidants, carotenes, flavonoids and vitamins A and C. It stimulates digestion, improves blood sugar control, lowers cholesterol levels and has anti-inflammatory properties. Black pepper is also useful in curing neuralgia, scabies, stomach infections, bronchitis and vitiligo.

Global Black Pepper Market Trends:

Although mostly used in savory dishes, black pepper is also gaining traction as a taste booster in sweets and bakery products. The burgeoning food and beverage industry, along with the increasing consumption of bakery, fried, confectionery and ready-to-eat (RTE) food products, such as cakes, chocolates and garlic bread, is boosting the overall sales of black pepper around the world. Apart from this, the rising demand for natural flavor enhancers is also propelling the market growth. Moreover, owing to its antibacterial and antioxidant properties, black pepper is widely used in the production of numerous skincare products. With the rising health awareness among consumers about the benefits of black pepper, it is further being included in the daily diet. Apart from this, it is also used by smokers to minimize nicotine cravings. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 4.9 Billion by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 5.5% during 2019-2024.
