The global vitamin ingredients market is anticipated to register considerable growth over the forecast period. This is owing to the ongoing expansion of the wellness industry and the rising demand for healthier and nutritional foods among consumers worldwide. Vitamins are considered to be an essential nutrient and aid in growth, digestion, and nerve functions, among others. Rising awareness about lifestyle diseases has been accelerating demand for vitamin ingredients over the past few years, which has also contributed to market growth.
Ingredients such as vitamin A, B, C, D, E, and K find application in food and beverages, cosmetics, animal feed, pharmaceuticals, and other industries. Vitamin A has gained much prominence in the market owing to the many benefits it offers. This includes the treatment of eye-related disorders such as myopia, night blindness, and cataract. Vitamin D is highly lucrative as a market segment, given its ability to help prevent diabetes and hypertension, as well as aid in the absorption of calcium for bone health.
Food and beverage is considered to be the fastest-growing application for the market. At the same time, a favorable outlook of the medical nutrition industry, in light of increasing product application for treatment of malnutrition and similar disorders, is likely to promote demand in the pharmaceutical industry.
