The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Vitamin Ingredients Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” finds that the global vitamin ingredients market size reached US$ 3.40 Billion in 2020. Vitamin ingredients, also known as vitamers, are substances with a family of related molecules chemically similar to vitamins or share a standard function in the body. These ingredients form an essential part of the diet and aid growth, digestion, and nerve functions. Vitamin ingredients are available for thirteen different types of vitamins with multiple vitamers. For instance, vitamin A contains six vitamers, vitamin B1 comprises three vitamers, and vitamin C has more than four different types of vitamers. Vitamin ingredients are classified based on two types, including fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins. Fat-soluble vitamins are diffused in fats and stored in the liver to be used when needed, whereas water-soluble vitamins are not stored but are consumed with food and then excreted as waste.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
