Growth Factors:

The global nutraceutical ingredients market is expected to grow at a significant rate owing to the increasing consumer demand for nutraceutical products such as probiotics, prebiotics, and vitamins. Nutraceuticals ingredients are extracted from animal, plant, microbial and help in providing extra nutritional value to food products. They are gluten-free and do not contain artificial colors and flavors, which makes them a healthy alternative to conventional products.

The demand for natural nutraceutical ingredients such as cranberry, garlic, ginkgo biloba, and ginseng extracts; glucosamine; and chondroitin has increased with the rising popularity of homeopathic remedies, preventive medicines, and self-treatment. Along with traditional ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, and proteins, companies have started including some new ingredients in nutraceutical products such as plant sterols, polyphenols, probiotics, and fatty acids.

The demand for these products is likely to grow as they can help in curing baldness, aging, obesity, and diabetes. For instance, the brand Ojamin, a fruit and herb sugar-free tonic, was developed through modern scientific research and herbs to aid diabetic patients. Functional foods are used in households and restaurants directly or indirectly on a daily basis. For instance, in restaurants, the use of cranberry beads in desserts or cocktails in the process of spherification is only possible with the help of nutraceutical ingredients.

Working-class individuals miss out too many nutritional benefits owing to their busy lifestyles, which can be solved by nutraceutical products. They are easy to carry and can be consumed on the go, thereby offering a suitable match for the demands of the working class. Nutraceutical product companies use online retail stores as a mode of distribution owing to the convenience factor. Ease of product availability through online retail platforms is expected to propel the demand for nutraceutical products, thereby positively impacting the nutraceutical ingredients market growth.
