The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Pickles Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, finds that the global pickles market reached a value of more than US$ 10 Billion in 2016. Pickles consist of vegetables and fruits soaked in the solution of vinegar or salt brine which helps to preserve them for a longer period of time. The solution prevents the pickles from decaying and encourages fermentation which makes them less vulnerable to spoilage-causing bacteria. Earlier this process was invented to preserve the vegetables and fruits, but nowadays pickles are consumed extensively as people relish the resulting flavour which is determined by several factors, such as the temperature of fermentation, the acidity or salinity of the solution and the exclusion of oxygen.

- The rising popularity of organic and non-GMO pickles coupled with the introduction of innovative products are driving the growth of the market.
