nutraceutical-excipients-marketGlobal Nutraceutical Excipients Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2022 - 2031

The global nutraceutical excipients market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~USD 3 billion by the end of 2031 by growing at a CAGR of ~7% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. Further, the market generated a revenue of ~USD 2 billion in the year 2021. The term nutraceutical, which is a combination of ‘nutrition” and “pharmaceutical”, is used to refer to products including specific diets, dietary supplements, and processed foods (soups, cereals, beverages), which, other than for nutrition, are also used as medicine. The increased and effective use of nanotechnology in medicine and pharmaceuticals is the primary factor propelling the growth of the global nutraceutical excipients market. For instance, in 2019 the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) received 55 submissions for drug products with nanomaterials.




The number of submissions received by the FDA for nanomaterials-based drugs between 1970 and 2019 sum up to about 600. About half of these were submitted in the decade from 2009 to 2019. The Nanotechnology-enabled drug delivery systems (NDDS) used in the food and supplements industry are highly beneficial for controlling drug toxicity.

Global Nutraceutical Excipients Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Alarming Growth of Chronic Diseases Worldwide - It is estimated that by 2030, the sum of global deaths following chronic diseases should be more than 69%. Similarly, the global burden of diseases is estimated to surpass 55% by 2030. Much of the chronic diseases related deaths are expected to occur in the African and Eastern Mediterranean regions. Eating a healthy diet along with maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, and avoiding smoking is thought to reduce chronic diseases related risk factors by more than 79%. Thus, an increase in chronic diseases indicates an increased need to turn to healthy food and thus several opportunities for the growth of the global nutraceutical excipients market.

  • Buying In-Stores to Increase the Sales of Dietary Supplements – It is estimated that customers spend ~70% of their discretionary income monthly in retail stores.

  • Rapid Growth of E-Commerce to Propel Market Growth– Only during the pandemic the number of online shoppers sees a year-0n-year (YOY) increase of more than 35%.
