The food premix market size was valued at USD 7.13 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 7.62 billion in 2024 to USD 13.32 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.23% during the forecast period.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with food premix experiencing higher-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a growth of 8.45% in 2020 as compared to 2019.

The growth of micronutrient premixes is increasing primarily due to the surging demand for functional food and supplements, rising parental concern for nutritional supplementation of infant foods, as well as the growing customer demand for convenience products. The manufacturers of customized blends are steadily aiming to develop innovative products to fulfill individuals' dietary requirements. Moreover, since the pandemic, consumers have been strongly dedicated to maintaining a healthy diet, which drives the global market growth.

The sudden outburst of the COVID-19 pandemic caused a severe impact on the producers as well as the consumption pattern of individuals. The shutdown of manufacturing facilities and difficulties in logistics have affected the essential commodities industries during the initial phase of lockdown. But, with the fainting effects of COVID-19, consumption of functional supplements, such as immunity-boosting beverages and nutritionally rich products, has significantly increased among consumers.

Food Premix Market Trends

Increased Consumption of Nutraceuticals to Support Health Mechanism  

With evolution, the robust demand for clean-label foods or healthy products has been increasing day by day among consumers. The growing awareness about the importance of health and the rising prevalence of micronutrient deficiencies, especially amongst infants, are some of the crucial factors responsible for surging the demand for customized blends in the market. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), 2021, approximately 89% of the world's population is consuming iodized salt to combat the occurrence of micronutrient deficiencies. In recent years, individuals have become more health-conscious and are continuously seeking healthy indulgent products that holistically improve their health and wellness. Functional sports drinks, energy drinks, pasta, biscuits, and others fortified with vitamins and minerals are widely popular and thus are consumed on a larger basis. Furthermore, as the modern-day lifestyle of consumers gives rise to the prevalence of numerous lifestyle disorders, such as obesity, cardiovascular ailments, and diabetes, consumption of nutraceuticals has been increasing exponentially.

Food Premix Market Growth Factors

Surging Demand for Customized Food Premix to Aid Market Growth Performance

In this modern era, where the customers and businesses have become more aware of the nutritional information of various products, the demand for customized food premix to address specific requirements is rising. Consumer choices and demands are paving the way for manufacturers to develop nutrient-enriched products. Over the years, fortified micronutrient ready mixes have gained tremendous popularity due to the mounting demand for vitamin or mineral-based fortified products and soaring need for convenience products amongst individuals. For instance, in November 2021, Minafin Sprl, under its health chemistry division, launched Blendamix, a custom premix for both food and pharma products. These products can help the manufacturers to increase their production capacities to meet the growing demand. Thus, all these factors are contributing to strengthening the market revenue of functional products across the globe.

Growing Incorporation of Food Premix in Nutraceuticals to Favor Growth

The market for functional food ingredients has flourished due to the rising demand for multiple functional supplementation from customers. Functional beverages in recent years have become more appealing to consumers to address their specific wants and desires. As the number of individuals opting for food and beverage products in context with building and supporting a healthy lifestyle increases, they seek nutraceuticals products and brands that enhance their lives. Numerous beverages, which offer several additional nutrient benefits to individuals, such as energy drinks, fortified tea, and coffee, are widely considered beneficial for boosting human performance. Moreover, the prominent players are also investing in fortifying the existing products as well as innovating novel products that are enriched with custom-compounded nutritional ingredients. The usage of food premix is one of the cost-effective strategies that also saves the time and efforts of consumers. Factors, such as rising demand for medical nutrition and a spike in incidences of malnutrition or other health-related disorders, can significantly augment the market growth.

The shift toward preventative health care and wellness is also a major factor driving the growth of the nutraceutical industry. Consumers are increasingly seeking products that enhance overall health and address specific health concerns. This trend is evident in the growing popularity of functional foods, dietary supplements and herbal medicines. Manufacturers are responding by developing innovative formulations that combine traditional wisdom with cutting-edge scientific research to create products that resonate with health-conscious consumers.


Regulatory Stringency on Quality and Safety Standards with Premixes to Hinder Growth

The global premixes market is undergoing a gradual shift in regards to different types of products. As the emerging economies in Asia Pacific significantly turn toward functional/fortified eatables and drinks, it poses a significant opportunity for exports due to the wide availability of raw materials and a large manufacturing base. Regulatory agencies across developed regions, such as Europe and the U.S., have strict regulatory guidelines focusing on label-claims validity and overall product efficacy. Also, high investment in the fortification process is also expected to obstruct market growth. Raw materials used in the production of large-scale fortified products are also responsible for hampering the overall market growth. For instance, dietary supplement brands have to undergo rigorous tests for identifying, purifying, and strengthening the composition of the product with the help of advanced technologies. Thus, these factors significantly restrain the market's growth potential.

Food Premix Market Segmentation Analysis

By Type Analysis

Hydrocolloids Segment to Dominate the Premix Market Owing to their High Consumption Compared to Other Forms

Based on type, the market is segmented into vitamins, minerals, and hydrocolloids. Out of all, the hydrocolloids segment witnessed a sharp growth, attributed to the mounting demand for clean-label foods or natural ingredients such as thickeners or stabilizers. The growing demand for the products is significantly increasing due to the losses of amino acids, proteins, vitamins, or minerals while processing, escalating numbers of the health-conscious population, as well as its health-promoting properties such as energy dense and weight management attributes. In order to overcome micronutrient deficiencies, custom-based products are formulated in such a way that fulfills the daily requirements of individuals.

Vitamin premixes include two major types of vitamins such as water-soluble vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, and C) and fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K). For instance, dairy products are fortified with Vitamin D to enhance calcium absorption and metabolism. In addition, mineral ready-mixes are also available in the market, consisting of iron, phosphorus, magnesium, and others in dry blended form. For instance, infant milk formulas are fortified with iron as it results in the augmentation of iron stores, which further helps to prevent iron deficiency. The products to be used should be incorporated in the right quantity, further achieving the desired quality of the final product. The ready-mix market has attained large popularity due to its proven health benefits across the globe.
