India Food Fortification Premix Market to Grow at a CAGR of 18% in 2019-2024

According to a new report by EMR titled ‘India Food Fortification Premix Market Report and Forecast 2019-2024’, the Indian food fortification premix market grew rapidly at a CAGR of 23.2% annually between 2014 to 2018, reaching a value of more than INR 1.7 billion. The market will continue to show an impressive growth over the next five years with a projected CAGR of around 18% for the period 2019-2024.

Based on a recent report by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), almost half of India’s population suffers from some form of micronutrient deficiency. Micronutrients like vitamins and minerals, although required in small amounts by the human body, are essential for maintaining optimum health as they help in forming hormones and enzymes. Deficiency of micronutrients can cause acute anemia, cognitive delays, decreased immunity and might result in the increase of birth defects.

In India, the economically weaker sections of the society are at a particular risk of micronutrient deficiencies. To counter this rise of micronutrient malnutrition, India was one the first countries to mandatorily fortify ‘Vanaspati’ with Vitamin A and salt with iodine in the 1950s and 1980s respectively. FSSAI has been encouraging the increased use of fortified food staples, with new regulations for fortification introduced in 2017. These steps by the government along with a growing preference of the consumers towards a healthier diet has provided a positive impetus for the Indian food fortification premix market.
