French term or phrase: massification
Hello,
I'm stuck on this sentence (in a text about natural and green brands) - "ceci illustre une fois encore le phénomène de massification du marché naturel". Can anyone help with a translation of 'massification' in this context? Is there an idea of a social phenomenon or is it just a question of 'boom'?
Thanks!

massification
Explanation:
This is also used in ENglish and is derived from the verb 'to massify' =to form into a mass, to popularise for the masses. In this instance it is the popularisation of the natural market for the masses
