The Global Cooking Sauces Market is further characterized by a preference for easily preparable sauces that introduce novel flavors to cuisine. These aspects are expected to boost the expansion of the Global Cooking Sauces Market during the forecast period. However, high cost of cooking sauces and health concerns are anticipated to restrain the overall market growth during the period in analysis.

Impact of Covid-19 on Global Cooking Sauces Market

Covid-19 pandemic adversely affected the Global Cooking Sauces Market. It resulted in closure of restaurants and hotels which is the primary consumer hubs for cooking sauces. Concurrently, household consumers, anticipating lockdowns, prioritized stocking basic food items. The closure of retail stores and disruptions in production further compounded the challenges. However, as lockdowns persisted and consumer hesitancy toward ordering food from outside continued, a shift occurred. Homebound consumers began experimenting with new dishes, resulting in a modest upturn in demand for cooking sauces and related ingredients. In response to this trend, cooking sauce manufacturers seized the opportunity, introducing new products to diversify their offerings. For instance, Jubilant FoodWorks launched a range of sauces and pastes named "ChefBoss" on August 06, 2020, through the e-commerce channel. These new product launches, combined with the gradual reopening of restaurants and food joints, have generated fresh demand for cooking sauces.

Global Cooking Sauces Market – By Distribution Channel

Based on distribution channel, the Global Cooking Sauces Market is divided into Supermarkets/Hypermarket, Convenience Stores, and Online segments. The supermarkets/hypermarket segment holds the highest share in the Global Cooking Sauces Mark by distribution channel, due to the expansion of retail outlets and the diversification of products available in supermarkets and hypermarkets. Moreover, the convenient access to a wide range of products and immediate exposure to merchandise enhances consumer satisfaction, attracting customers to hypermarkets and supermarkets and boosting sales in this segment. Meanwhile, the online segment is expected to witness the fastest growth rate in the market during the forecast period. It can be primarily due to the rise of online service providers such as Amazon, Grofers, and Big Basket. The expansion of e-commerce players, coupled with the added advantages they offer, such as discount coupons, cash-on-delivery, and doorstep delivery, is anticipated to fuel demand for market growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, the deepening of the mobile internet and the increasing use of smartphones in rural areas present significant opportunities for online food retailers and service providers, such as Swiggy, UberEats, and Zomato. The growing prevalence of online channels is also reducing operational costs for sellers, as they can save the expenses associated with running physical stores.
