The market for nutraceutical excipients in North America is projected to record high growth due to the increase in consumption and concentration of key players in the region. However, post-COVID-19, by the third or fourth quarter of 2020, the market for nutraceutical excipients will witness immense growth due to the high consumption of nutraceuticals in the daily dietary lifestyles of consumers. The North American market is projected to witness a substantial increase in demand, as a result of the rise in awareness pertaining to these health-benefiting supplements, as well as the number of cases and casualties, resulting in high demand for immunity boosters and other supplements. Thus, the growth rate is projected to decline during the ongoing pandemic but will increase two-folds after the projected quarters. 

Opportunity: High use of excipients with multifunctional properties is witnessed as an emerging trend among key players.

Multifunctional excipients are a class of excipients that include pre-processed and co-processed excipients that provide added functionalities to the formulation. For example, Silicified Micro-Crystalline Cellulose is a processed combination of MCC and colloidal silicon dioxide. These functionalities include flowability, compressibility, particle size distribution, shape, and porosity. The term multifunctional excipient is also extended to products that serve multiple roles in the formulation of dietary supplement and functional food & beverage line of products; for example, Ludipress is a co-processed product containing lactose, Kollidon, and Kollidon-CL, which serves the role of DC diluent with binder and disintegrant properties.

The demand for excipients with improved functionalities in the nutraceutical industry remains high, while also minimizing the drawbacks of incorporated excipients. According to the International Pharmaceutical Excipient Council (IPEC), a co-processed excipient is “a combination of two or more compendial or non-compendial excipients designed to physically modify their properties in a manner not achievable by simple physical mixing, and without significant chemical change.”

The binders segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the nutraceutical excipients market in 2020, by functionality.

Based on functionality, binders accounted for the largest market share in 2019, followed by the fillers & diluents functionality segment. Binder is 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 used widely as food and supplement additive. Due to factors such as versatility and vital importance in gaining product efficiency, binders are gaining traction and are witnessing a rise in consumption as an excipient in the nutraceutical industry.

Other factors contributing to the growth of nutraceutical excipients in North American region include the busy lifestyle of consumers, prevalence of chronic diseases due to hectic lifestyles, and an increase in awareness among consumers regarding the health benefits of nutritional foods, including food supplements, which has driven the demand for functional food products. In addition, the use of technological advancements and new product launches have made excipients available for a wide range of applications in the fortified food & beverage, dietary supplements, and nutraceuticals sectors, which is projected to drive the growth of the market in the region.
