The global functional food and beverages market size is projected to reach USD 793.60 billion in 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 10.23% during the forecast period. Increasing malnutrition worldwide will be the primary growth driver for this market in the near future, shares Fortune Business Insights™ in its new report, titled “Functional Food and Beverages Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Cereals & Grains, Fats & Oils, Dairy Products, Bakery Products, and Other Functional/Fortified Foods) Distribution Channel (Supermarkets/Hypermarkets, Convenience Stores, Online Retail, and Others), and Regional Forecasts, 2024 – 2032”. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), close to 462 million people are underweight and 52 million children under the age of 5 are suffering from wasting. Moreover, roughly 45% of deaths among children below 5 years of age occur due to under-nutrition. As a result, governments have spurred into action in both developed and developing countries. For instance, in 2019, the UK government made it mandatory to fortify flour with folic acid to prevent occurrence of congenital disabilities in children. Similarly, in July 2019, the Indian government announced distribution of rice fortified with folic acid, Vitamin B12, and iron through the Public Distribution System (PDS). The market for functional foods and beverages, thus, stands to gain from these developments.

Market Driver

High Nutritional Value of Functional Foods to Spike Uptake

The popularity of fortified food and beverages has been steadily climbing in recent years, mainly due to the hectic and unhealthy lifestyles people are leading in urban areas. As a result, there is growing demand for nutrition-rich food and beverage items fueled by rising health and wellness concerns. Functional foods have emerged as an attractive option for many consumers, given their wide-ranging and long-term benefits. For example, functional foods and beverages fortified with omega-3 fatty acids can boost brain function, secure heart health, and reduce inflammation. The benefits of functional foods are not limited to just chronic and lifestyle-based disorders; they have proven efficacy in tackling the effects of under-nourishment too. For example, the National Institutes of Health reported that introduction of wheat flour fortified with iron in Jordan led to 50% reduction in the incidence of iron deficiency anemia among children.
