According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Chicory Market is accounted for $795.30 million in 2023 and is expected to reach $1,322.02 million by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period. Chicory is a plant and it is known for its edible leaves and roots. It is commonly used in culinary applications, especially in salads and as a coffee substitute. Chicory offers various health benefits and is offer anti-inflammatory benefits for the heart and osteoarthritis. Besides, chicory also contains inulin which promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut and helps in improving digestive health.

According to FAOSTAT, more the 100 million tonnes (~112 million tons) of coffee and 6.4 million tonnes (7.05 million tons) of tea were produced globally in 2018.

Market Dynamics:


Demand for natural ingredients

Chicory serves as a caffeine-free coffee alternative, appealing to individuals who want to reduce their caffeine intake or prefer naturally-derived options. Additionally, inulin, a natural prebiotic fibre found in chicory, is used as a sweetener in various food and beverage products. This is especially attractive to those seeking alternatives to synthetic sweeteners, promoting the use of natural ingredients. Furthermore, the plant is also used in the production of gluten-free and health-focused products, meeting the dietary needs of various consumer segments. Thus, the chicory market benefits significantly from the surge in consumer demand for natural ingredients, as chicory's diverse applications cater to health-conscious consumers seeking cleaner, more natural choices in their diets and beverages.


Bitter taste

Chicory is a plant that some people find distracting due to its bitter flavour. The bitter flavour of chicory is primarily attributed to the presence of natural compounds called bitter substances, such as lactucin and lactucopicrin. Although some people find bitterness to be a desirable quality in some culinary traditions, bitterness can be difficult to market to a broader consumer base. These compounds are responsible for the distinctive taste profile of chicory and are often perceived as undesirable by consumers who prefer milder or sweeter flavours. Therefore, it acts as a significant barrier to market growth.


Health and wellness trends

Chicory's natural qualities make it a popular ingredient as customers prioritise their health and wellness more. Chicory, high in inulin, is a popular ingredient in many health-conscious goods because of its perceived benefits for digestive health. Chicory's adaptability enables it to profit from wellness and health trends even more. It is a caffeine-free coffee alternative that is intended for people who want to reduce or completely avoid caffeine in their diets. It also satisfies the need for better substitutes for added sugars and artificial sweeteners in products through its use as a natural sweetener. In addition, chicory's involvement in clean-label goods and beverages enhances its appeal in the context of healthy food and simple labelling as customers choose increasingly natural products. Its potential in the health and wellness industry, where consumers are actively looking for natural, health-promoting substances, is highlighted by the combination of variables. Hence, all these factors result as the opportunities for the growth of the market.


Environmental and sustainability concerns

Environmental and sustainability concerns represent a growing threat to the chicory market. Chicory cultivation and processing practices must align with environmentally friendly and sustainable principles to meet evolving consumer expectations. These practices encompass water usage, land management, and the responsible use of agricultural chemicals. Failure to adopt sustainable methods can result in environmental degradation, increased production costs, and consumer backlash. In a market increasingly sensitive to eco-conscious consumers, chicory producers must address these concerns to maintain their reputation and market presence.

Covid-19 Impact

The COVID-19 epidemic presented the chicory industry with both opportunities and challenges. Positively, chicory benefited from the pandemic's increased emphasis on health and wellbeing. Its popularity as a natural, gut-friendly component drew in customers who wanted to boost their immunity and maintain their overall wellness. The popularity of natural and clean-label products has increased, and Chicory's inulin-based sweeteners and coffee alternatives are a great fit for this trend. However, the epidemic also brought about a number of negative impacts. The distribution and availability of chicory products were impacted by disruptions in the worldwide supply chain. Lockdowns and limitations caused substantial declines in the restaurant and foodservice sectors, which in turn affected the demand for chicory in these industries.

The Chicory Flour segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The Chicory Flour segment is estimated to hold the largest share. Chicory flour involves the milling and processing of chicory roots into a fine, gluten-free flour. This flour is gaining attention as a nutritious and versatile ingredient, suitable for a wide range of applications. Chicory flour is renowned for its mild, slightly sweet flavour, making it an excellent choice for gluten-free baking and cooking. Moreover, it adds nutritional value by providing dietary fibre and inulin, a prebiotic that supports gut health. This segment caters to the increasing demand for gluten-free and healthier alternatives in the food industry, offering an appealing option for those with dietary restrictions or those seeking nutritious, clean-label ingredients in their products. Thus, it promotes the segment's growth.

The Food & Beverages segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The Food & Beverages segment is anticipated to have lucrative growth during the forecast period. Chicory is used as an ingredient in a wide range of food and beverage products. Its applications are diverse, including salads, vegetable side dishes, baked goods, and as a coffee substitute. Chicory's slightly bitter flavor profile complements various culinary creations, and it is favored for its health benefits, such as digestive support. Additionally, consumers seek natural and healthier alternatives in their diets, chicory's presence in food and beverages aligns with the demand for clean label, natural, and functional ingredients, making it a significant and versatile segment in the market.

Region with largest share:

Asia Pacific commanded the largest market share during the extrapolated period. With a large and growing population, increasing health consciousness, and a rising demand for natural and functional ingredients, the region holds significant potential for the chicory industry. One of the key drivers for chicory market growth in the Asia-Pacific region is the increasing awareness of the health benefits associated with chicory consumption. Moreover, chicory is known for its prebiotic properties, which promote digestive health and support the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. As consumers in this region become more health-conscious, there is a growing interest in incorporating functional ingredients like chicory into their diets.

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is expected to witness profitable growth over the projection period due to its various health benefits and its versatile application in the food and beverage industry. Increasing demand for natural and plant-based ingredients is a key driver in the North American region. Additionally, North American market also benefits from a well-developed food and beverage industry that embraces innovation and new product launches.
