The prices of nutmeg in 2021-2022 are expected to be affected as the price of nutmeg and mace has risen significantly due to a scarcity of the product on the market, including several other difficulties that have encouraged farmers to expect higher prices. The key demand indicator in the industry report is the highest category spender by region - Asia Pacific.

Category Drivers

An increase in international trade due to the increased popularity of Asian cuisines such as Indian and Thai cuisines among the Western community, and a high growth in the oleoresin sector, are some of the factors driving the market expansion for nutmeg during the forecast period. It is mainly farmed and exported in Guatemala, India, and Indonesia, with main import destinations including Europe, the Middle East, and the United States. However, it is an Asian spice that's catching on in other parts of the world. For example, it's one of Europe's most widely used spices. In addition, the growth of ethnic cuisines like Indian and Thai has increased food makers’ demand for spices like nutmeg among food makers.

Category Insight by Region

Most of the nutmeg spice is consumed in Asia and the Middle East. The spice's popularity is explained by the great variety of regional dishes that employ it as a key spice constituent, and the long-standing practise of using it in medicine. Guatemala, India, and Indonesia are nutmeg’s top producers and exporters. In addition, the growth of the oleoresins sector has strengthened the nutmeg market in the region. Oleoresins are fascinating ingredients for food manufacturers to utilise in ethnic dishes, including spices like nutmeg. Nutmeg oleoresin is extracted in countries such as India and Sri Lanka, with export possibilities in the region. In Europe and the United States, these extractions are in high demand. Due to rising demand from the international community, the nutmeg market is likely to grow during the forecast period.

Aflatoxin Contamination of Nutmeg Caused during the Post-Harvest Stage

Some fungi thrive due to the traditional method of sun-drying nutmegs, such as Aspergillus flavus. Because aflatoxin (AFs), a secondary metabolite of A. flavus, is known to be harmful, the dried nutmeg kernel must be aflatoxin-free before being exported. Unfortunately, aflatoxin detection takes time and money, making it difficult to do at the farm level. Several technologies, such as high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS), and enzyme-linked immune assay (ELISA), have been developed to assess aflatoxin levels. However, they are all time-consuming, expensive, and dangerous. As a result, a system that can detect aflatoxin levels quickly, cheaply, non-destructively, and easily is needed, particularly at the farmer level.
