Dehydrated Onions Market to Hit $1.7 Billion by 2031

The expansion of fast-food joints, hotels, and food processing units has positively impacted the market of dehydrated onions, which are often included as key ingredients in a myriad food items. Coupled with this, direct consumption through household recipes will enable growth in the dehydrated onions market at over 5% CAGR between 2021 and 2031.

As per Future Market Insights (FMI) analysis, the market is expected to reach a valuation of over US$ 1.7 Bn by 2031.

Key end users of dehydrated onions are food processing units, HoReCa (hotels, restaurants, and cafes), and household kitchens. Food processing units use dehydrated onions to manufacture ready-to-eat foods. Hotels and restaurants use dehydrated onions for gravies and other food items.

In household cooking, dehydrated onions are emerging as a preferred substitute for fresh onions. However, this consumer segment remains largely untapped. This can emerge as a suitable niche market for new entrants. Companies largely focus only single consumer demographics.

The demand for dehydrated onions is surging due to improvements in technologies utilized in the production of dehydrated food. Technologies such as vacuum and air-dried processes support production, and distribution are increasingly adopted, which will bode well for the market. Also, regulatory approvals have been creating growth opportunities for dehydrated onion manufacturers.

Onions, despite being one of the most commonly consumed vegetables in the world, have restrictions in terms of shelf life. On the other hand, dehydrated onions can be stored for longer time and have wider scope of applications, which in turn is propelling the growth of the dehydrated onions market,” said a lead analyst at FMI.

Robust Supply Chains to Increase Market Penetration

Global supply chains for dehydrated onions are largely mature, with adequate transportation infrastructure available to facilitate product movement. Dehydrated onions have benefited from existing supply methods since they may reach clients directly without barriers. Most dried onions come in specialized packaging, which makes storing and transportation easier.

For dehydrated products, companies are using the similar supply chain and transportation modes that find use in frozen food. With minor modifications in storage units, transportation can be made easy and hurdle-free, which improves the trade of dehydrated vegetables.

Almost all developed countries (excluding the Middle East) have an established supply chain, due to which, they are able to supply products directly to retail stores and customers on time.
