Polyphenols Market Segment Analysis- By Source
The polyphenol market
is segmented into three broad categories based on their source- fruits,
vegetables, cocoa, and others. The fruits segment dominated the market in the
year 2020. It is owing to all types of polyphenols in the majority of the
fruits that humans consume. Although, flavonoids and phenolic acids dominate
this in the ratio of 3:2 in the majority of the fruits. The high intake of
polyphenols has been a contributing factor in achieving an exponential life
without diseases. The research was conducted in which it was found that fruit
intake had a significant impact, then that of the vegetable when the polyphenol
intake was the same, the absorption of fruits by the urinary tract and others
were better. The following studies became a primary reason why fruits are
preferred in terms of sources for polyphenols.
The fruits segment will continue to grow at the fastest CAGR of 6.7% over the forecast period of 2021-2026. It is owing to the latest addition of fruits in curating beverages, with overall high nutritional value. For example, brands such as Nutrixin launched a product line of three different beverages, all on fruits, with a claim that each product offers 2-4x more polyphenol content than the original fruit. In addition, expenditure on technological advancements and further knowledge of extrapolating the benefits can help the sub-segment to grow.
Polyphenols Market Segment Analysis- By Application
The polyphenol market
is segmented into three broad categories on their application- Functional
foods, dietary supplements, and beverages. The beverage sub-segment dominated
in the year 2020. It is owing to the benefits polyphenols add in the products
in which it is used. For example, green tea as a beverage contains all
categories or types of polyphenols such as flavonoids, flavanols, and phenolic
acids. The weight constituent of polyphenol in dry green tea is attributed to
around 18%-36%. Moreover, with the presence of polyphenols, green tea as a
beverage helps in providing antioxidant properties, which in turn helps in
better digestion. Additionally, in the year 2020, the pandemic ran its course,
and researchers established that green tea helped reduce the severity of
Sars-Cov-19 if the virus latches on to one. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG)(a
type of catechin), the major component of green tea, helped mitigate the
antigen's binding power.
Although, the functional foods sub-segment will observe the fastest CAGR of 7.1% over the forecast period of 2021-2026. It is predominantly owing to the rising adoption by manufacturers to inculcate polyphenol in the nutraceutical offerings, as the consumers have become aware of the following ingredient and the overall nutritional value the food or meal offers. The following reasons will help the polyphenol market is propelling forward.
Polyphenols Market Segment Analysis- By Geography
Asia-Pacific held a
dominant market share of 35% in the year 2020. The majority of the countries
belonging to the following regions have been using spices as a significant herb
in preparation for food. Spices of all kinds have a proportion of polyphenols in
them, which have made the use of the following prevalent across the region. However,
Colorectal cancer prevalence has been increasing in the regions of China,
Japan, Korea, and Malaysia. The deaths which happened because of colorectal
cancer in 2019 in Asia were 461,422; which was the highest compared to the western
regions; and as per the scientific research, polyphenols have proved their use
in reducing the incidence of colorectal cancer, owing to their
anti-carcinogenesis effect in the colon of the afflicted person.
Moreover, Asia-Pacific is set to grow at a lucrative growth owing to the technological advancements made and breakthroughs observed. Additionally, the prevalence of diabetes in the Asia-Pacific region is immense. Of the total diabetic population surveyed, 60% belong to the area. Since polyphenols exhibit properties that can help in diabetes management, they will allow the affected people to adopt diets containing nutritional benefits.
Polyphenols Market Drivers
Polyphenols can help in diabetes management, which can substantially help the growing diabetes population.
Diabetes has been referred to as a silent
killer by US CDC, and the growing numbers of the diseases have not suggested
otherwise. As per the global diabetes data report, four out of five adults have
undiagnosed diabetes in low- and mid-income countries. Moreover, 32.3 million
of the European population had confirmed diabetes, which had grown 2x from the
year 2000 when it was 16.8 million.
Researchers have claimed that polyphenols can substantially help in managing diabetes owing to its composition and the inhibitors it exhibits in the body. Results of the studies have shown that polyphenols decrease hyperglycemia and additionally improve insulin secretion and insulin sensitivity. Growing evidence indicates that various dietary polyphenols may influence blood glucose at different levels and may also help control and prevent diabetes complications. Curcumin, a common spice used and found in India has substantial amounts of adiponectin which helps insulin sensitivity. And a further study helped and proved the hypothesis. 240 prediabetic adults, participants were given 250 milligrams of curcumin or a placebo every day for 9 months. After the intervention, none of those taking curcumin developed diabetes, but 16.4% of the placebo group did. In other words, curcumin was 100% effective in preventing Type 2 diabetes. The properties exhibited by polyphenols may help them to establish their place as a diabetic management food and penetrate the market deeper.
Evolution towards adopting a “health-conscious” diet and foods with high nutritional benefits will help the polyphenol market.
Researchers conducted a study to learn about the discussions on “healthy living” on online platforms. In 2019, 636,056 unique internet users existed; the no of mentions about healthy living was 1,078,060. In 2020, 999,081 unique internet users were added, and the mention of healthy living grew to 1,693,357. A 57% increase was noticed in the online mentions for healthy living. The following trends govern that the Gen Z, Gen X, and the millennials have started to adopt diets that will help them achieve a sustainable life with no cardiovascular diseases. The adoption of polyphenol in “functional food” will substantially add more value to the food and beverages sector. Research has further added that the inclusion of polyphenol in daily diet may also help reduce the cases of colorectal cancer, prevent blood clots, reduce the chances of blood clots, and ease digestion functions. The following reasons will help in making the use of polyphenol evident.
Polyphenols Market Challenges
Polyphenol levels decrease over time for processed functional food can hamper the market growth.
Polyphenol, although it exhibits various qualities while consumed in its occurring raw forms, such as in fruits and vegetables. The bioactive compounds take a substantial dip over time, and the overall polyphenol levels are immensely affected by the temperature they are kept in. For example, juice processing of berries resulted in the loss of ellagitannins by up to 82%. Moreover, the storage of products at 25 degrees C resulted in a dramatic loss of monomeric anthocyanins, by up to 75%. Anthocyanins exhibit properties such as anti-cancer, anti-diabetes, and preventing cardiovascular ailments. The failure of the following polyphenol may prevent the user from deriving the appropriate nutritional value, and thereby hindering the overall growth of the market.
