The carmine segment commanded the largest share of the overall natural food colors market in 2019. The growing demand for carmine from food and beverage industry is mainly due to its use in wide range of applications in food products, such as cake icings, hardy candy, bakery products, ice cream, yogurt, gelatin desserts, fruit syrups, and jam preserves owing to its unique red color.

Based on form, the overall natural food colors market is segmented into liquid, powder, gel, and emulsion. In 2019, the liquid form segment accounted for the largest share of the overall natural food colors market. The large share of this segment is mainly attributed to its increasing demand during the manufacturing of food and beverage products to improve the viscosity, mouthfeel, product stability, texture, shelf life, pleasant taste, and visual aspect. This form is largely used for food items, which require lighter and more pastel colorings. In addition, since these colors provide constant and specification-oriented quality, there is no need of investment in equipment for dissolving, filtering, and pasteurization. Moreover, liquid form of natural food colors have much higher water content as compared to gel; thus, it is highly used in making hard candy and lollipops, frostings, cakes, cookies, ice cream, and syrups
