Asian Economies – The New Target Pockets of Investment

South Asia and East Asia are anticipated to show a higher growth rate compared to other regions. The increasing urbanization and changing lifestyle of consumers are propelling the demand for exotic foods and effectively for gourmet salt. Also, the increasing trend and popularity of gourmet kitchens and restaurants are expected to boost the gourmet salt market.

Despite having less share in the global gourmet salt market, South Asia and East Asia will be the new target markets for manufacturers of gourmet salt during the forecast period.

North America and Europe collectively account for more than 60% of the revenue represented by the global gourmet salt market. Consumers in North America and Europe have a dense cluster of multinational and local manufacturers of gourmet salt. This has increased market infiltration and market share of these two regions. North America is anticipated to grow at a CAGR ~3% and Europe is expected to grow at a CAGR ~ 4% during the forecast period.

However, gourmet salt harvesting involves high capital investment for processing, packaging, labeling, and marketing, which ultimately increases the final product cost. This additional cost associated with the processing of gourmet salt is hindering the growth of the global gourmet salt market.
