DUBLIN, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3nhbwl/nutraceutical) has announced the addition of the "Nutraceutical Ingredients Market by Type & Application - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.
The aging population and an increasing number of chronic diseases generate health concerns in the consumers' mind, which are major factors that push the nutraceutical product and nutraceutical ingredients market. Consumers are shifting their eating habits from hunger-satisfaction to the intake of healthy food in order to either fulfill the nutrient deficiency in the body or to prevent the deficiency of major nutrients.
The concept of nutraceuticals is a modernized one and still seeks opportunities in several parts of the world. However, the growth prospects of this industry are extremely high in future due to the involvement of various herbal ingredients that tend to gain the consumers' trust in developing nations. The role of nutraceutical ingredient is incredibly significant in the overall nutraceutical industry, as the quality of ingredients used in the product directly affects the market for that product. Hence, the nutraceutical ingredients industry stands out of the overall nutraceutical industry and has its own growth opportunities and market space. Although both the industries are interdependent on each other, the impact of the ingredient industry is higher on the product industry.
The major applications for nutraceutical ingredients include functional food, functional beverages, dietary supplements, animal nutrition, and personal care. According to the analysis and study, the five categories mentioned above are the most widespread applications for nutraceutical ingredient. The overall industry of food and beverages has not been taken into consideration as the functional food and beverages in their basic functions are different from regular food and beverages. Dietary supplements are taken as a part of pharmaceuticals as the products are served in the forms of capsules, tablets, powders, and liquids that supplement certain nutrients that the diet of a person is deficient in.
Animal nutrition is gaining significance with increasing concentration on the diet served to animals with the growing meat and meat products industry. Another reason is the growth of the milk industry that pushes the manufacturers to provide animals with quality food. Personal care is an emerging application in the nutraceutical ingredients industry. It is technically termed as cosmeceuticals that involve healthy and nutritious ingredients to treat skin, hair, etc.
