U.S. nutraceutical contract manufacturing services Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Factors such as the increasing health consciousness among consumers, the availability of advanced technologies, and the rising number of contract manufacturing companies in various significant regions are expected to drive the growth of the overall nutraceutical contract manufacturing market.

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly disrupted raw material supplies, which coincided with the massive demands for dietary supplements positioned to support the immune system. For instance, according to an article published by the National Library of Medicine in December 2021, the sales of dietary supplements in the U.S. increased by 44% in the six weeks preceding 5th April 2020. The same source stated that the sales of multivitamins spiked by 51% in March 2020, reaching 120 billion units in the U.S. alone. Similarly, the sales of vitamins increased by 63% in the U.K. and around 40% to 60% in France during the pandemic, compared to 2019.

Additionally, the development of region-specific pharmaceutical and food industries is expected to further fuel the growth of the nutraceutical contract manufacturing services market. For instance, in June 2022, Star Combo Pharma, a manufacturer and distributor of health, nutritional, and beauty products, announced the opening of its new 7,000-square-meter manufacturing facility in New South Wales, Australia. The facility will provide 30,000 square meters of total manufacturing floor space and has been procured for a total bid of USD 7.5 billion.

Moreover, nutraceutical contract manufacturers have been expanding their service offerings to meet the evolving needs of the industry and their clients. Increasing collaborations between nutraceutical companies and contract manufacturers have led to strategic partnerships that foster innovation, improve operational efficiency, and drive growth. Some contract manufacturers have established dedicated R&D facilities to support their clients' product innovation efforts. They invest in R&D and ingredient testing to stay at the forefront of nutraceutical advancements. By offering R&D support, contract manufacturers enable their clients to leverage their expertise and bring new, science-backed products to the market.

Product Insights

The contract manufacturing services for the functional food and beverages segment dominated the market with a 64.40% revenue share in 2022. The segment refers to packaged food and beverages (e.g., antioxidant-rich cereals and beverages) containing added nutrients and/or health ingredients, wherein enhancements are intended to produce a nutritional benefit. As more and more consumers increasingly focus on their health and well-being, it is anticipated to propel the demand for functional foods and beverages that offer specific health benefits. This is because functional foods and beverages make for an effective means of delivering nutrients and bioactive compounds, including minerals, antioxidants, vitamins, plant extracts, fiber, prebiotics, and probiotics.

The dietary supplement market has been steadily growing, driven by increasing consumer awareness regarding health & wellness, changing dietary preferences, and a desire for preventive healthcare. This market expansion has led to a higher demand for manufacturing services to meet the growing need for dietary supplements. Contract manufacturers offer scalability and flexibility in production to brand owners, thus increasing the uptake of these services. They have the capacity to handle varying production volumes, accommodating fluctuations in demand without the need for significant capital investments from brand owners.

Dietary Supplements by Dosage Form Insights

The tablets segment dominated the dietary supplements market by dosage form, with a 24.48% revenue share in 2022. Tablets are the most popular dosage form for nutraceuticals. They offer convenience, ease of use, and precise dosage control. Market trends indicate high demand for tablets due to their familiarity, portability, and longer shelf life. Brand owners are increasingly outsourcing the manufacturing of tablets to Contract Manufacturing Organizations (CMOs) owing to associated benefits such as cost-effectiveness, expertise & technology, scalability, flexibility, and risk mitigation.

CMOs possess extensive knowledge, expertise, and advanced technologies in formulation development, production, and quality assurance. They are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, regulatory compliance experience, and a skilled workforce dedicated to efficiently manufacturing tablets and adhering to industry standards.

The gummies segment is anticipated to register a lucrative CAGR of about 14.66% over the forecast period. Nutraceutical gummies and chews have gained popularity, especially among children and individuals who dislike swallowing pills. They offer a pleasant taste and are often formulated to resemble candies. The market for gummies and chews is growing rapidly, driven by the increasing demand for nutraceuticals in more palatable forms. Consumers are seeking personalized and customized nutraceutical products that cater to their specific needs. Contract manufacturers are responding to this trend by offering a wide range of customization options, including ingredient selection, dosage forms, and packaging, to meet individual/regional consumer preferences.

Dietary Supplements by Type Insights

The proteins & amino acid supplements segment dominated the dietary supplements market in terms of type, with a 35.8% revenue share in 2022. There is a growing awareness of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and physical fitness. Consumers, including athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and health-conscious individuals, are seeking protein and amino acid supplements to support their fitness goals, muscle recovery, and overall well-being. The desire to optimize athletic performance and achieve desired body composition is driving the demand for proteins and amino acid supplements. The demand for vegan and plant-based protein supplements is growing due to various factors, including ethical considerations, environmental concerns, and dietary preferences.

Preference for natural and organic products among consumers to support health and wellness is rising in North America. Nutraceuticals provide an alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals and are perceived as a more natural approach to maintaining good health. This growing demand is driving the need for contract manufacturers to produce a wide range of nutraceutical products in the region.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to register a lucrative CAGR of about 13.92% over the forecast period. The strong growth in the region is due to the rising demand for nutraceutical products from various countries, such as China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Australia.
