Nutraceuticals Market to Reach $450 Billion by 2015


PMMI study examines nutraceutical market, free webinar May 9

Reston, VA.; - Although the nutraceutical market is only a few decades old, it's expected to grow 7 percent annually, from $345 billion in 2011 to $450 billion in 2015. That puts it among the greatest opportunities for consumer packaged goods companies (CPGs) and their suppliers, according to PMMI's Nutraceuticals Market Assessment, released this month.

"Nutraceuticals are a relatively new product category, but their growth has been amazing in the last few years," said Jorge Izquierdo, vice president of market development, PMMI. "Encompassing a range of food-based products with medical or health benefits, the segment touches several major markets including food, pharmaceuticals and beverages ."

Nutraceutical sales in China ($15 billion) and India ($2 billion) mark key areas of growth, as do nutraceutical beverages, which PMMI expects to see grow 9 percent annually through 2015. However, with increased FDA regulation of the nutraceutical industry and the introduction of new dietary ingredient (NDI) compliance rules, industry consolidation is likely, according to the report.

Industry trends highlight convenience and portion size, with innovations in material-saving pouches, bottles that utilize seal closures, and material-conscious shrink sleeves. Speed, flexibility and ease to use are key factors for nutraceutical manufacturers.

PMMI's Nutraceuticals Market Assessment is available for purchase from PMMI (free to members, $3,500 to non-members). PMMI will host a free webinar overview of the report at Noon EDT on May 9.
