Rapid Expansion of Flavors and Fragrance Industry
Trans-Cinnamic acid is an important substance which acts as a precursor for esters to develop fragrances. It has a spicy odor and a pungent taste suggestive of cinnamon. It is used as a flavoring agent for bakery goods, confectionaries, beverages, and toothpaste. It is also used to impart fragrance in air fresheners, soaps, and cosmetics. It is used as a blender in perfumes, particularly for floral fragrances. It is used in products where a spicy character is required such as in mouthwash and chewing gums.
The global flavors and fragrances market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 4% during the forecast period. As the demand for flavors and fragrances is increasing from companies that manufacture food products and beverages, perfumes, cosmetics, toiletries, and household products, the consumption of raw materials (trans-Cinnamic acid) is also increasing.
According to a senior analyst at Landmark for specialty chemicals, “Considering the latest R&D in the global aroma chemicals market, which is a segment of the flavors and fragrances market, aroma chemicals are also being used in manufacturing medicines, food items, and beverages. Their use has expanded across various sectors and has driven the demand for trans-Cinnamic acid.”
