Global $4.2 Bn Nutraceutical Excipients Market 2018-2022 by Functionality, End Product, Form & Region -

Research and Markets
Posted on: 26 Feb 18

The "Nutraceutical Excipients Market by Functionality (Fillers & Diluents, Coating Agents, Lubricants, & Flavoring Agents), End Product (Prebiotics, Probiotics, Proteins & Amino Acids, & Vitamins), Form (Dry & Liquid), & Region - Global Forecast to 2022" report has been added to's offering.

The nutraceutical excipients market is estimated at USD 2.96 billion in 2017, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.6% to reach USD 4.27 billion by 2022

The market is primarily driven by factors such as growing demand for nutraceuticals and advances in nanotechnology used to impart new functions to excipients. Several multinational excipient manufacturers have made minimal investments in R&D for excipients in the past few years, except in the area of specialty excipients. The decline in R&D investments for developing new and innovative excipients due to several challenges is expected to restrict the growth of the excipients market in the long run.

Nutraceutical excipients are being used as lubricants, and their market for this functionality is projected to grow at the highest CAGR among other functionalities. Lubricants enhance the quality of the end product and support some of the processing features such as smooth ejection of the tablet from the tablet mold, thus quickening the manufacturing process. They also have an impact on the hardness of the tablet.

Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market over the next five years. With busy lifestyles and increase in disposable incomes, the demand for fortified nutritional food & beverage products is growing in the region. The application of excipients is estimated to increase at a higher rate due to the demand from the nutraceutical industry.
