Major Trends in the Masala and Blended Spice category
The spice and masala industry has come a long way from the early 1980s when having straight spice powders like chilli, turmeric and coriander in packed form was a convenience.
Blended spice powders have been the major driver of value growth in the spice industry. A rapidly growing and urbanising population with dual-income families has been driving the consumption of blended masala powders. Blended masalas like channa masala, sambar masala, paneer butter masala, and chicken masala have been seeing robust growth.
The changing cooking and consumption habits driven by innovation in idli and dosa batter have made idli as the preferred breakfast in India and increased demand for sambar masala. Likewise, a growing and efficient cold chain has made paneer available in even the smallest kiranas across Tamilnadu where paneer was not consumed earlier. This has perhaps driven demand for paneer masala in the country.
A country like India with a rapidly growing income is seeing an increase in protein consumption driven by eggs, chicken, fish and meat. Growth in protein consumption drives demand for masalas like chicken, meat and fish masalas.
Our search for convenience has led to more innovation creating demand for blended masalas that now include ginger, onion and garlic which helps save time on dicing and peeling in the kitchen. Single-serve packs have cooking instructions to help make dishes in three simple cooking steps and have also seen rapid adoption by consumers.
Consumer exposure to international travel and social media driven by influencers and celebrity chefs has also created a demand for Chinese, Continental, Mediterranean and fusion cuisine blends like the now popular Desi Chinese kinds of masala blends and also pasta variants.
