The global plant extracts market is expected to grow from USD 30.8 billion in 2021 to USD 55.3 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2021 to 2026. The growth of the plant extracts market is driven by the rising demand for healthier lifestyle of consumers preferring more natural products. The increasing number of applications for plant extracts across products has helped establish a strong market for these products. Plant extracts have been used in pharmaceuticals, food, and cosmetics industries across the globe. However, recently, they have gained a lot of interest as they are relatively safer, with minimal side effects to health as compared to synthetic extracts. Hence, they are widely used as antimicrobials and anti-inflammatory drugs. In cosmetics, these extracts find applications as anti-aging reagents, hair oils, mouth wash, liniments, and dental care products.

(China), Synthite Industries Private Ltd. (India), and PT. Indesso Aroma (Indonesia).
