Curcumin Market

Rising concerns regarding harmful effects of artificial ingredients in food products are spurring demand for clean label food products and ingredients. Consumer dissatisfaction with synthetic food products is compelling food manufacturers to incorporate natural and plant-based ingredients for flavor and color.

Research indicates that tar-based artificial colors, such as erythrosine aluminum lake, brilliant blue aluminum lake, allura red, and sunset yellow, cause cancer, brain tumors, and hypersensitivity in children, and are thus widely criticized for their contents.

Concerns about side effects of synthetic and chemicals additives used in food and beverages, cosmetics and personal care products, and pharmaceuticals are driving demand for natural alternatives. Natural and plant-based ingredients contain more beneficial nutrients than synthetic supplements.

As a result, manufacturers are focusing on launching new curcumin supplements with enhanced benefits in order to expand their product offerings and customer base. Curcumin continues to be one of the most important ingredient in the Indian spice industry. However, several studies have indicated its application in the nutraceutical industry. As per Nutrition Business Journal, curcumin was among one of the top ten bestselling supplements in 2016.

The primary function of curcumin is as an anti-inflammatory agent and an antioxidant, indicating functional health benefits in the nutraceutical market. The anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin help in treating joint pain and arthritis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. 

Apart from this, studies also have demonstrated effectiveness of curcumin in the management of alcohol liver conditions, cancer prevention, irritable bowel disease and others.

“Increasing adoption of curcumin in the packaged food industry as a natural colorant, along with rising demand for curcumin in the personal care and cosmetics industry for its anti-inflammatory benefits will continue augmenting growth of the global curcumin market through 2031,” says an FMI analyst.

Key Takeaways:

  • The U.S. is estimated to account for more than 79.0% of the North American market in 2021, supported by increased consumption of curcumin-derived protein products.
  • China is estimated to account for over half of sales registered in the East Asia market share in 2021.
  • Germany is expected to dominate the Europe curcumin market, holding 16.3% of the total market share in 2021.
