The Global Nutraeutical Ingredient Market size is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period, to reach USD 4.1 billion by 2028, with an estimation of over 50 million tons produced annually. The consumption of functional foods and dietary supplements has increased in recent years due to their health benefits such as weight management, improving digestive function, and immunity enhancement that would contribute towards boosting the demand for nutraeutical ingredients globally.


Nutraeutical Ingredient refers to a wide range of substances that are either derived from food materials or synthesized. They can be used for the formulation and production of dietary supplements, functional foods, medical foods, and nutraceuticals. Nutraeutical ingredients also include prebiotics, probiotics, proteins & amino acids (EAA), minerals (including essential nutrients) as well as vitamins & carotenoids which provide antioxidant properties.


On the basis of Types, the market is segmented into Prebiotics, Probiotics, Proteins & Amino Acids, Minerals, Vitamins, and Carotenoids. These products are widely used for the formulation of dietary supplements to alleviate various health conditions such as gastrointestinal disorders (for example IBS) or joint pain caused by arthritis.



Prebiotics are dietary substances, other than proteins and fats, that beneficially affect the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or a limited number of bacteria in the colon. They may be soluble fiber sources such as oligosaccharides (fructans; galactooligosaccharides), non-digestible polysaccharide chains from wheat arabinoxylans, resistant starch derived from plant material like bananas, psyllium husk, barley beta-glucan among others.



Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that naturally occur in the human body. Probiotic foods have become popular as a way to maintain gastrointestinal health, boost immunity, and promote digestive balance. The various strains of beneficial bacteria help regulate gut flora while promoting healthy digestion and immune function.


Proteins & Amino Acids:

Proteins are large, complex molecules composed of amino acids. Amino acids can be classified as either essential or non-essential. Essential amino acids cannot be synthesized by the body and need to come from dietary sources; in contrast, non-essential amino acids can be synthesized on the spot by cells that require them for protein synthesis or repair (such as liver cells).

Proteins support a variety of functions including muscle growth and development, cell structure maintenance, immune system health, hormonal balance, and more. The most well-known types of proteins include animal meat such as beef and chicken breast but also eggs, milk, and soybeans, etc.



Minerals make up a number of crucial bodily functions and deficiencies may lead to health problems such as anemia, muscle cramps, or brittle nails. The top three most common mineral nutrients are calcium (found in dairy products), iron (found in red meat), and zinc (can be found in shellfish). Research has shown that lack of these minerals can contribute to mood swings, low energy levels, and impaired immune function.



Vitamins are organic micronutrients required in small amounts to maintain life. They cannot be synthesized by the body and must be obtained from food, fortified foods, or dietary supplements. Vitamins have diverse functions including bone health care, brain function, protein synthesis, muscle maintenance, and many others. There are two classes of vitamins: fat-soluble (A, D, E) and water-soluble (C).



Carotenoids are substances that can be found in plants and animals. They play a role in photosynthesis, which is the process by which living things get energy from light. As such, they provide many functions for human beings. Carotenoids help give color to fruits and vegetables when eaten as well as protect against damage caused by free radicals (disease-causing molecules). Plant carotenes have been shown to reduce inflammation, slow down aging and promote eye health while animal carotenes may improve fertility rates among other benefits.


On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Functional Food, Dietary Supplements, and Animal Nutrition.


Functional Foods:

These are food products that claim specific health benefits or have certain ingredients added to them for nutritional purposes such as reducing hunger between meals and aiding gastrointestinal problems; they include snacks like cereal bars which contain fiber so people eat less during high-calorie times while eating breakfast in bed before starting another day at work. They can be found in supermarkets, pharmacies, and specialty stores.


Dietary Supplements:

These are food products that claim to be an addition or replacement for daily nutrients such as those found in multivitamins; they can also contain ingredients like caffeine that help with alertness while on the go. They can be bought at a grocery store, pharmacy, health outlets, or online.


Animal Nutrition:

These products are used for animal feed or food in order to improve the health and well-being of animals. They include probiotics, which can be found in livestock such as pigs and chickens that help their digestive tracts stay healthy while improving production; prebiotics like resistant starch is another example.


On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. In North America, probiotics had witnessed the fastest pace of development due to increasing awareness about health benefits linked with consumption of them, healthy gut bacteria, and obesity management. Similarly, the market in Latin America is expected to grow at a significant rate due to increasing awareness about healthy gut bacteria and obesity management.

Asia Pacific region, Europe, the Middle East & Africa are also witnessing rapid growth owing to the rise in consumer disposable income coupled with the growing incidence of digestive disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) among other factors.


Growth Factors For The Global Nutraeutical Ingredient Market:

Growing awareness among consumers about their own health and wellness needs is one of the key factors driving growth in the global nutraeutical ingredients market. In the healthcare market, more money is being spent on products related to supplements or nutritional foods. The percentage expenditure on these products has been increasing steadily over the last few years due to changing lifestyles and increased demand for convenience food that are leading people away from home cooking.
