Global Functional Food Market to Grow at a CAGR of 6.7% During 2024-2032, Aided by the Rising Demand for Nutritional and Fortified Food Products

Global Functional Food Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Functional Food Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market attained a value of USD 206.75 billion in 2023. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% in the forecast period of 2024-2032 to reach a value of USD 370.53 billion by 2032.

The rising consumer demand for healthy and nutritious food products is driving the growth of the functional food industry. Moreover, functional ingredients such as omega-3 and probiotics are frequently used in fish oils and yoghurt to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and improve intestinal microflora quality. As a result of this trend, the market is expanding. Also, the demand for functional foods has risen throughout the world as people become more health-conscious and pay more attention to their lifestyles and diets. Furthermore, the increasing consciousness regarding digestive health owing to the rising popularity of low-carbohydrate and high-protein diets is expected to be a major factor propelling the market growth in the forecast period.


The growing collaborations among the leading players are expected to aid the industry growth in the forecast period. For instance, FrieslandCampina and Cayuga Milk Ingredients, a manufacturer of dairy ingredients for the global food and nutrition sectors, announced a collaboration in February 2021. Refit milk proteins MPI 90 and MPC 85 are the focus of the collaboration, which will be sourced from two farmer-controlled cooperatives working together to provide consumers with a local source of quality milk proteins from New York's Finger Lakes area. In addition, the easy availability of nutraceuticals and functional foods through online channels like Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Alibaba (NYSE: BABA) is expected to further propel the industry forward.
