Market Outlook

The global vinegar reached a volume of 1.06 million tons. It is projected to grow further in the forecast period of 2019-2024, growing at a CAGR of 0.9% to attain 1.12 million tons in 2024. In terms of value, the global vinegar market attained USD 1.28 billion in 2018. It is also expected to grow in value in the period between 2019 and 2024 growing at a CAGR of 1.8%, to reach USD 1.43 billion in 2024.

Europe is the leading vinegar market, accounting for nearly 50% of the global market share. In Mediterranean countries, wine types are the common vinegar available in the region. In these countries, it is either consumed directly or added to salads and vegetables. Thus, a greater focus on their taste and quality is associated with these patterns of consumption. Some of the premium products produced in the region is being increasingly commercialised like the Aceto Balsamico di Modena. Its consumption and trade has seen a significant growth. Italy is the largest vinegar market in Europe. The country is also its leading exporter. Italy exports almost twice its quantities as compared to other major exporters like Germany, Spain, and France. The export values of Italian types are also substantially higher than those of Spanish or German types. While the vinegar exported by Germany is mainly bound for application in the pickling or sauce industries, Spanish exports also include premium products like Italian exports. Vinagre de Jerez is one of the premium types exported by Spain.
