Drivers: Increasing R&D and manufacturing capacity for functional food and beverages

The rapidly growing demand for functional food ingredients such as prebiotics, probiotics, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, plant extracts, and omega-3 fatty acids is drawing the attention of global functional food ingredient manufacturers, who are making significant investments in the sector. Manufacturers are developing functional confectioneries such as gummies and toffees for children, nutrition bars, and functional drinks that attract fitness enthusiasts and consumers looking for quick nutrition.

Consumers are increasingly becoming aware of their digestive health, driving innovation in probiotic product offerings. Prebiotics and probiotics are the emerging functional food ingredient segments in which researchers are focusing on developing different applications and benefits. Researchers from the National University of Singapore have created probiotic-infused beer; this beer is considered good for gut health. Many such applications are expected to emerge as R&D investments increase, driving the market for functional food ingredients.

Restraints: Higher cost of functional food products due to the inclusion of healthier or naturally sourced ingredients

The development and commerce aspects of functional food ingredients are complex, expensive, and uncertain. Factors behind the success of product development are technological conditions, consumer demand, and legislative and regulatory background. Significant investment is required for the R&D of a strain that will be used to produce new functional ingredients such as probiotics. Probiotic strains and products are developed and produced in accordance with international food regulations. Also, highly sterile and technical equipment and processes are required for the manufacturing and extraction of various other functional ingredients. As a result of the high cost of production, the price of the final product is also high. Marketing and distribution further add to the product price. Although consumers are aware of the health benefits derived from these expensive functional food ingredients, their high prices restrict them from buying the product. The intensity of the factor further increases in developing countries that have a price-sensitive consumer base, especially in some Asian and African countries.
