The global phytochemicals market size was worth US$ XX million in 2021 and is estimated to reach US$ XX million by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecast period (2022-2029).
The plant-derived compounds known as phytochemicals comprise foods including vegetables, fruits, cereals and plant-based beverages like wine and tea. Cardiovascular illness is one of several chronic diseases that phytochemicals successfully treat. Food legumes include a variety of phytochemicals, including phytohemagglutinins, tannins, phytic acid, saponins, protease inhibitors, oligosaccharides and phytoestrogens, which can have both positive and negative impacts on health.
These have been linked to several beneficial health effects, including decreased kidney and cardiovascular disease risk, anti-aging treatments and brain growth. According to their chemical structures, phytochemicals can also be generically classified as alkaloids, flavonoids, carotenoids, phenolics, terpenoids, steroids and essential oils.
The worldwide phytochemicals market is predicted to be driven by increased health awareness among consumers and increasing use of phytochemicals in animal feed. However, phytochemical side effects may limit market growth during the predicted period.
Rising awareness in people regarding the health benefits provided by phytochemicals
People are using phytochemicals more frequently as they transition more and more toward an organic lifestyle. The Roswell Group, a renowned medical research organization, asserts that consuming phytochemicals reduces the risk of developing heart disease and cancer. The American Institute of Cancer Research advises that cancer patients may benefit from ingesting phytochemicals.
In addition to these benefits, phytochemical extracts from plants like Lagerstroemia speciosa and Lagerstroemia floribunda, which don't have any negative skin-related side effects, have a wide range of anti-aging properties in skincare formulae. Due to consumer lifestyle changes and an increased focus on appearance, the demand for phytochemicals is predicted to rise.
Rising application of phytochemicals in animal feed
According to research, people use phytochemicals more frequently as they transition more and more toward an organic lifestyle. The Roswell Group, a renowned medical research organization, asserts that consuming phytochemicals reduces the risk of developing heart disease and cancer.
Alternative growth stimulants, such as phytochemicals, have developed. Although it was first proposed that they be used a few decades ago, there has been considerable controversy regarding how they impact performance. The biological properties of phytochemicals, such as their effects on the development of immunity and their antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-stress and nutrigenomic properties, have made them attractive for use as growth promoters in animal husbandry.
Side effects of phytochemicals
Phytochemicals are compounds found in many plants that are extensively consumed by people and are typically thought to be safe to eat because they are produced naturally. It isn't always the case, though; in fact, several naturally occurring compounds found in many commonly ingested plants have the capacity to either cause cancer or encourage the growth of tumors and should be avoided.
The accumulation of phytochemicals in plants is influenced by environmental factors or growth conditions such as nutritional deprivation, pathogen assault, competitive cohabitation of plant species, insect predation and herbivore attack, according to NCBI. For instance, the biochemical processes in plants or crops may be impacted by agricultural practices, which may limit or alter the accumulation of phytochemicals.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Numerous types of research have focused on employing organic compounds to alleviate the COVID-19 epidemic's side effects. Among such efforts is the in vivo and in vitro testing of phytochemicals for coronavirus resistance (especially SARS-CoV-2). The advantages of employing medicinal plants and isolated phytochemicals for treating various illnesses, including viral diseases and their effects, include their capacity to address many therapeutic targets simultaneously.
Secondary plant metabolites can greatly minimize these pulmonary issues because infection with any COVID family virus, particularly SARS-CoV-2, can badly affect the pulmonary system. Pro-inflammatory and oxidant mediators, among other molecular targets and signaling systems, can be reduced by phytochemicals.
By end-user, the phytochemicals market is segmented into pharmaceuticals, functional beverages, functional food, dietary supplements, personal care & cosmetics, animal nutrition and others.
Wide usage of phytochemicals in pharmaceuticals
Due to expanded studies in the area, scientists have found numerous uses for phytochemicals in the pharmaceutical business. Phytochemicals reduce the risk of developing cancer and numerous other chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. The pharmaceutical sector is interested in seeing its use increase in developing various treatments for these illnesses.
Because the goods were obtained and produced ethically and organically, BASF SE approved five active ingredients through the COSMOS criteria in 2020. It is the largest manufacturer and distributor of natural cosmetics containing active ingredients. 145 of the cosmetic compounds produced by BASF SE are COSMO-registered globally. Flavonoids are widely used in the pharmaceutical sector. Flavonoid, an enzyme that raises immunity and lowers the risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease and other disorders, is mostly to blame. As a result, the pharmaceutical sector now needs more flavonoids.
Strong pharmaceutical sector in North America
The market for phytochemicals is anticipated to be dominated by North America. According to cbo.gov, the pharmaceutical industry spent US$ 83 billion on R&D expenses in 2019 and numerous new pharmaceuticals have been developed in U.S. in recent years that offer significant medical benefits. Phytochemicals are employed in the pharmaceutical sector to create drugs because they have the bioactive potential to combat lung cancer and cardiovascular illnesses. Additionally, phytochemicals have metabolites; therefore, the emphasis is now on exploiting natural resources for medicine delivery rather than chemicals.
Thirty-eight new medications were approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) between 2010 and 2019, a 60% increase annually. Pharmaceutical investment in 2019 was estimated to be over US$ 83 billion, with large and small drug manufacturing companies generally focusing on various R&D efforts. By avoiding infections, treating stomach ulcers and having an anti-microbial effect, these features increase the usage of phytochemicals. According to Volza, Canada will be one of the countries importing the most medicines in 2020, accounting for 7,514 shipments. Phytochemicals are gaining popularity due to their low toxicity as medicinal alternatives.
The major market players are utilizing strategies like alliances and acquisitions, product launches and partnerships to broaden the appeal of their products, develop their product portfolios and increase their competitiveness in the worldwide phytochemicals market.
