Nutraceutical ingredients are derived from sources such as animal, plant, microbial, and synthetic, which provide health benefits, basic nutritional value, and functional benefits to various applications such as food, beverages, dietary supplements, animal nutrition, and personal care products.
MarketsandMarkets projects that the global nutraceutical ingredients market is projected to grow from USD 152.0 billion in 2019 to USD 228.0 billion by 2025, recording a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7% during the forecast period. The growing consumer demand for fortified food & beverages, the increasing number of incidences of chronic diseases, and mandates on food fortification by government organizations due to inadequate levels of vitamins and minerals in the human body are projected to drive the growth of the nutraceutical ingredients market.
The dry segment is estimated to dominate the market for nutraceutical ingredients in 2019. Dry nutraceutical ingredients witness a higher demand due to better stability and ease of handling & storage, as compared to the liquid form. A number of nutraceutical ingredients that are used in the dry form are vitamins, amino acids, prebiotic & probiotic premixes, proteins, and some minerals such as zinc and folic acid. These are either available in the form of capsules or compressed into tablets.

The prebiotics segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the nutraceutical ingredients market during the forecast period due to its wide usage in fortification of food and beverage products. Further, prebiotics are used to protect livestock health and increase the efficiency of nutrient utilization as they are a key alternative to antimicrobials in feed, which is projected to drive their demand in feed formulation for livestock.
In terms of geographic coverage, the nutraceutical ingredients market has been segmented into five regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and RoW. The Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period due to the large consumer base for food, beverages, dietary supplements, personal care products, and feed in the region. Further, rising incomes, increasing purchasing power, and growing consumer demand for nutritional & health products are projected to offer promising prospects for the growth and diversification of the nutraceutical industry in the region.
Epigenetics and nutrigenomics have identified that every individual has different nutritional requirements, and they respond to food in different ways. This provides a huge market opportunity for nutraceutical end-product manufacturers, whereby, linking a diet to a genome not only results in improving health but also reduces the chance of developing adverse health conditions. Such corroborated usage of technology with a dietary design is further projected to offer profitable market growth opportunities for nutraceutical ingredient manufacturers.
