Herbal medicine is a key health care option adopted globally due to its organic nature, lack of side-effects, and limited use of synthetic chemicals. With increased demand for herbal medicine all over the globe, natural ingredients in medicines are witnessing a rise in demand. In 2013, WHO developed and launched the ‘WHO Traditional Medicine Strategy 2014–2023’ which emphasized on the integration of complementary and traditional medicine to encourage universal health care and ensure the safety, quality, and effectiveness of herbal medicine. Therefore, natural ingredients in medicines are propelling the market in a positive direction.

Additionally, demand for natural low-calorie sweeteners is rising at a rapid rate globally owing to multiple health disorders including obesity and cholesterol issues which have resulted in a decline in the use of sugar-containing products. This drives the global licorice extracts market positively, as they are a natural sweetener used in the food & beverages industry on a large scale. However, synthetic sweeteners are still used in higher quantities than natural sweeteners in all application industries.

The food & beverages sector employs the former extensively as they are cost-effective and easy to use. Usage of natural sweeteners is still limited, restraining the overall growth of licorice extracts globally. Developing nations in Asia and the Middle East have always used herbal and natural medicines since pre-historic times. With rising knowledge about their benefits and lack of production capacity in developed countries of North America and Europe, these markets offer huge opportunities to the global licorice extracts market. North America imports a major portion of the product.
