The aroma chemicals market is driven by consumer awareness, changing lifestyles, increasing R&D initiatives, and advanced technologies.

Market Overview

The aroma chemicals market encompasses the production, distribution, and sale of synthetic or natural compounds used primarily for their scent or flavoring properties. Aroma chemicals are substances with complex fragrances that improve the fragrance of compositions. They are highly volatile and may easily diffuse smells, resulting in long-lasting fragrances. Natural aroma chemicals are extracted from plant parts and purified by fermentation and separation. Synthetic aroma chemicals are developed in a laboratory, providing clarity about the aromatic signature and chemical ingredients. These compounds can be added to skincare, haircare, personal care, household cleaning supplies, and detergents to improve their fragrance.

Report Highlights

Source Insight

The synthetic source segment dominated the aroma chemicals market. Synthetic aroma chemicals are long-lasting, complex scents created at a low cost from petroleum and aromatic molecules. They provide a diverse selection of scents and are evaluated to forecast composition, odor, price, and market availability. They provide a continuous supply to meet expanding market demand while maintaining quality. They also provide a solution for those who are allergic to natural scents because they do not employ genuine plant extract.

The natural source segment is also growing in the market. Natural aroma chemicals derived from plants are thought to improve mood and are gentler on sensitive skin. However, their particular aroma can be influenced by ambient circumstances and plant growth conditions. These small modifications may necessitate formulation adjustments by perfumers. Natural aroma compounds provide high-quality perfumes despite their high cost and scarcity.

Application Insights

The fragrance application segment dominated the aroma chemicals market in 2023. Aroma chemicals are used in a wide range of sectors, including perfumery, food processing, cosmetics, candles, soaps, detergents, fabric softeners, cleaning goods, and pharmaceuticals. They are used to provoke emotions, cover bad odors, and align with brand identity, thus increasing brand loyalty. They are also used in consumer products such as air fresheners, potpourri, and car interiors. Aroma compounds have an important role in creating aromatic experiences that improve our daily lives, influencing all aspects of our sensory interactions with the world.

Chemical Used Insights

The terpenes chemical segment dominated the aroma chemicals market in 2023. Terpenes are a natural flavoring and aroma agent found in food and cosmetics, providing a wide range of flavors and aromas. They are commonly used in the production of essential oils, beverages, flavorings for baked goods, and other products, while in cosmetics, they are used in the production of lotions, perfumes, and other products.

Market Dynamics


Rise in demand for aroma chemicals in the fragrance and flavor industry

Rising demand for different fragrances and flavors is a key driver for the growth of the aroma chemicals market. Rising disposable incomes and shifting consumer tastes are propelling the fragrance and flavor industry forward. Food and beverage, personal care, home care, medicines, and cosmetics are the most common user industries, with huge multinational corporations, domestic companies, and small businesses all participating. The increased demand for natural and organic products creates an opportunity for the fragrance and flavor business. Natural essential oils, a crucial element, have a higher import duty than fragrances. The industry has sent many requests to the government to remedy this issue by raising the VAT on finished fragrance compounds to protect the domestic industry.


Health challenges

Fragrances are a prominent allergen, causing allergy responses in 1-2% of individuals. More than half of shampoos, conditioners, and styling treatments include fragrance as a component. The EWG discovered fourteen compounds on average in seventeen well-known brands, all of which were labeled “fragrance.” Essential oils, which can be duplicated in a lab, also provide benefits that no lab can match. Synthetic fragrances, on the other hand, use over 3000 different chemical compounds to achieve the same scent. Over 1,200 of these chemicals have been classified as “chemicals of concern,” with seven of them being cancer-causing agents and fifteen being banned from use in cosmetics in the EU. Endocrine disruptors, which mimic human hormones and cause aberrant cell reproduction, can have a minor impact at the smallest dosages.


AI in fragrance

AI is gaining popularity in the fragrance sector, with uses ranging from studying customer behavior in e-commerce transactions to creating AI models for scent design and formulation. This has resulted in a greater willingness to use risk resources to advance the sector. AI integration into fundamental fragrance capabilities includes formula-to-brief recommendations, formulation, sensing, and novel chemical design. Formula-to-brief recommendation enables fragrance houses to match current formulations to new briefs, which benefits and monetizes non-exclusive formulas. AI formulation, which creates scent formulations and reformulations using software that predicts their perceptual influence, is difficult due to nonlinear arithmetic and the requirement for interdisciplinary knowledge. However, if operational, AI formulation can result in cost reductions and new revenue streams, such as effective malodor control formulae, near-identical odor profile reformulation, and individualized fragrance. From a perfumer’s standpoint, AI formulation empowers and facilitates through decision support rather than replacing the perfumer.
