Increased Demand for Himalayan Salt Propelling the Market Growth of Gourmet Salts

Based on type, the Himalayan salt segment accounts for a significant share of the market for gourmet salts.

The increasing demand for premium products and experience is expected to favour the growth of this segment in the coming years.
