Nutraceuticals Global Markets to Expand Exponentially

July 23, 2018

WELLESLEY, Mass., July 23, 2018–In the face of rising healthcare costs and lifestyle diseases, consumers are turning to dietary supplements and functional foods and beverages in an effort to avoid costly treatments. Nutraceuticals are defined as any food or food product that provide health benefits, including the prevention or treatment of disease. Nutraceuticals consist of ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids and probiotics and are sold in the form of foods, beverages and supplements (FBSs).

According to the BCC Research report Nutraceuticals: Global Markets to 2023, individuals are more likely to self-medicate through nutraceuticals, functional foods, organic foods and botanicals, and over-the-counter (OTC) drugs than at any other time in history. The market is being driven by rising health concerns, an aging population and growing per capita income in developing countries such as China, India and Brazil as consumers turn to more natural ways to prevent disease.
