The global functional ingredients market grew at a CAGR of around 6% during 2015-2020. Functional ingredients are bioactive compounds used for delivering various health benefits. They include nutritionally fortified components that are added to food and beverages to improve energy levels, digestion, concentration, memory and vision. Some of the commonly used functional ingredients include proteins, vitamins, probiotics, prebiotics, omega-3 and hydrocolloids. They are added to milk, bread, pasta, cereal, granola, cheeses, yoghurt, tea and coffee. These ingredients also aid in preventing nutritional deficiencies, promote optimum growth in children and adults and minimize the risks of developing diseases.
The growing food and beverage industry across the globe represents one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, increasing health consciousness among the masses, along with the widespread adoption of functional food products, is also driving the market growth. Due to the sedentary lifestyles and hectic schedules, there is an increasing prevalence of various medical ailments. This has led to a growing preference for food products fortified with functional ingredients to obtain a nutrient-rich diet. Additionally, aggressive promotional activities of these products by various food and beverage manufacturers through social media platforms to reach a wider consumer base are acting as another growth-inducing factor. They are also collaborating with celebrities and sports personalities to create more awareness among the consumers, especially millennials. Other factors, including rising healthcare expenditure capacities of the consumers, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market further.
