Drivers & Restraints-

Rising Usage of Functional Ingredients to Improve Immunity will Aid Growth

Consumers across the globe are nowadays demanding for unique flavors in their dips. Hence, several manufacturers are striving constantly to come up with novel products to cater to the taste and preferences of consumers. O’Dang Foods, for instance, introduced two new flavors of balsamic feta and classic Mediterranean hummus in the U.S. in June 2020 to fulfil the high demand for Mediterranean cuisine. A few other companies are equipping their dips with various functional ingredients, such as lime, turmeric, blueberry, and lavender because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic for enhancing immunity. However, the increasing availability of substitutes, namely, salsa and tahini may hamper the hummus market growth.

North America to Dominate Fueled by Higher Consumption of Dips and Spreads in the U.S.

On the other hand, Europe is likely to remain in the second position backed by the high popularity of the product in the U.K. In Asia Pacific, the rising disposable income of people is expected to aid growth.
