Carthamus Yellow Market: Regional Analysis

The use of the carthamus yellow in the food applications is higher in the European and the North America regions as the requirement for the clean label products is more in these regions. Due to the high price of carthamus yellow, the majority of its use is in the high-end applications. But many manufacturers have started to manufacture carthamus yellow especially in Mediterranean countries, Europe and the U.S. This is because of the high demand of the clean label ingredients in the food, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical industries. The high competition amongst the manufacturers might result in the lowering of the price in the upcoming years.

The discontinuation of many dyes in the Asia Pacific region that have a chemical composition and are harmful to the human health can result in the carthamus yellow and many other pigments that are clean label to gain traction in the upcoming years. Also, its use in the food and beverages processing is comparatively less as compared to its use in the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry. But it is expected to have a very high market share in the upcoming years.
