The APAC region provides immense growth opportunities for companies operating in the savoury ingredients space. The primary reason for this is a growing demand for instant food such as noodles and savoury snacks in these markets, and this demand is supported by a substantial increase in the disposable income of people.

There is an increasing adoption of savoury flavours in the APAC countries and the region also demonstrates a growing preference and demand for hydrolysed protein-based meat products. There is also a growing inclination towards convenience food and an awareness of the usage of yeast extracts in lieu of salt, which provide the same taste while ensuring a reduced dietary sodium content at the same time. All these factors have contributed to the growth of the APAC savoury ingredients market. However, stringent government regulations on the use of monosodium glutamate (MSG) may hamper the growth of the APAC savoury ingredients market.
