Beta Carotene Market Growth:

An aging population and an increase in chronic lifestyle-related diseases help to increase demand for beta-carotene-containing foods and dietary supplements.


The demand for these ingredients in food, feed and personal care products has skyrocketed as consumer awareness of beta-carotene and antioxidants protect against cancer, aging and other health benefits. The industry is presumed to witness incredible growth in the next eight years. The tremendous rise in the adoption of beta-carotene in sectors like food and beverage, personal care, cosmetics, animal feed, dietary supplements and others is likely to promote the business in the coming years.

Beta-carotene, along with food and beverages, is gaining considerable attention in dietary supplements as consumer interest in natural and vitamin-mineral rich supplements increases. As consumer demand for organic and natural cosmetics has increased, manufacturers and product developers have started using beta-carotene as a critical ingredient in many cosmetic and personal care products. However, natural beta-carotene has recently been introduced into organic cosmetics.

The food processing industry has adopted beta-carotene as a standard colorant for a variety of products such as challenges, dressings, and other food products as demand for natural ingredients and additives increases. Therefore, increasing consumer awareness of the health benefits of natural color sources like beta carotene in recent years is one of the main drivers of the global beta carotene market.

Additionally, beta-carotene is rich in antioxidant nutrients that treat oxidative stress and improve cognitive function.
