By form, the dry segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the nutraceutical excipients market in 2020
The dry form of nutraceutical excipients accounted for a larger market share, as compared to the liquid form. The popularity of the dry form can be attributed to its cost-effectiveness and convenience in multiple applications. An increase in demand for dry beverage mixes with additional nutrients, including customized mixes and consumer preference for fortified beverages are fueling the growth of the dry segment in the nutraceutical excipients market.
By functionality, the binders segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the nutraceutical excipients market in 2020
Based on functionality, binders accounted for the largest market share in 2019, followed by the fillers & diluents functionality segment. Binders are increasingly being used by dietary supplement manufacturers since these excipients are formulated to act as an adhesive to “bind together” powders, granules, and other dry ingredients to impart the required mechanical strength. Binders can also help in adding volume to low-active dose tablets, resulting in producing effective tablets with appropriate actives by holding the ingredients together. In addition, some binders also act as fillers and diluents in an array of application products, namely magnesium stearate, which is widely used as food and supplement additive. Due to factors such as versatility and vital importance in gaining product efficiency, binders are gaining traction. They are witnessing a rise in consumption as an excipient in the nutraceutical industry.
The segment estimated to account for the largest share in the nutraceutical excipients market in 2020, by end-product is the probiotics segments.
Probiotics are yeast and good bacteria that are beneficial for consumers, as they enhance digestion and gut health, improve immunity, increase nutrient absorption, and lower the chances of food allergies. Probiotic products are offered in different forms, including yogurt and drinks, and supplement forms such as tablets and capsules. However, there are two main challenges to develop a probiotic formulation viable for commercial utilization. The first one is the quality of health attributes that the probiotic organisms can confer, and the second one is the stability of the formulation till the end of its shelf life. Companies are focusing on developing and offering probiotic blend products, which includes APIs (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient), containing probiotic formulations by using different types of excipients. Among the excipients used in these blends for probiotics formulation, mannitol was found the most suitable, which helped in the enhancement of the shelf life of end-products.
