MARKET OVERVIEW

1.1 Definition and scope of study

Natural extracts are solutions that are rich of active ingredients obtained from raw plant materials. Extracts can have a liquid, solid or spring consistency and are mainly used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and herbal medicine. Natural extracts are usually divided into the following categories:

- Aqueous plant extracts prepared by macerating herbs in water

- Glyceric and hydro-glyceric extracts obtained using glycerine as a solvent

- Alcoholic extracts obtained by macerating plants in alcohol (ethinol is often used)

- Essential oils obtained by steam distillation from the fresh plant or by cold pressing it

- Vegetable oils, butters and waxes obtained by pressing or squeezing the hardest part of the plant such as the roots or seeds

As for the global market this was worth $43.32 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach $66.81 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2020 to 2027. One of the reasons for this strong growth is the fact that many consumers prefer natural products as a healthier alternative to synthetic products.

Consistent with the global market, the Italian market is growing strongly, especially as regards the consumption of supplements, mainly composed of plant extracts, which recorded an increase of 2.5% between the year 2018 and 2019, reaching 256 million packs sold with a value of 3.5 billion euros. 

The main market trend is to increasingly use this type of product in cosmetics and perfumery with the aim of eliminating unhealthy chemicals and creating 100% natural products. A second trend is to use plant extracts as an integral part of the diet in order to have a healthy and balanced lifestyle even when not taking the right amounts of vitamins or minerals.
