Global Nutricosmetics Market to Reach US$4.24 Billion by 2017, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (amazon) (shopzilla)

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) October 04, 2011

Follow us on LinkedIn – Nutricosmetics is the intersection between nutrition and personal care and is rapidly emerging as the most lucrative segment of cosmetics industry across the globe. As wellness and medical science becomes interwoven in the aesthetics industry, consumers are increasingly embracing nutricosmetics for promoting external beauty and optimizing total health. At a time when conventional cosmetics and food companies are facing the challenge of understanding the customer needs, nutricosmetics provides the ideal solution. Increasing awareness among consumers, ageing population, inclination towards less invasive beauty treatments, emergence of the spa culture, and environmental and societal concerns are expected to encourage robust growth in future. Nutricosmetics ingredients, comprising of vitamins, antioxidants, PUFAs and specific carotenoids is a rapidly growing category within the industry, and opens new doors of opportunity in immediate future. The niche market for Nutricosmetic Ingredients is driven by the correlation between ever-dynamic consumer requirements and constantly expanding application areas.

The nutricosmetics market finds several disparities across various regions worldwide, each determined by their unique set of drivers, regulations, consumer preferences and commercial dynamics. Currently, Japan and Europe represent leading countries, collectively accounting for a massive share of the global market. Over the last few years, nutricosmetics has been gradually gaining acceptance in the North American market, although it is still one of the smallest markets in terms of size. Regulatory norms pertaining to beauty supplements also vary across countries. In the US, such products are categorized as dietary supplements and the FDA provides no clear legal definitions. In Europe, nutricosmetics falls under both medicinal and food law, and ambiguity persists about which law is applicable. Currently, the regulatory system (FOSHU legislation) in Japan is most favorable for introduction of nutricosmetics products. The country has an established system in place for approving nutricosmetic and functional products. Worldwide, use of illegal ingredients backed by deceptive, spurious product claims, is still the most important concern that needs to be addressed by establishment of effective regulatory mechanisms.

The nutricosmetics products are primarily targeted at women aged 40 or above since the group is particularly concerned about health and wellness. However of late, the products are also gaining popularity among younger women in the age group of 25-35, due to cosmetic benefits and environmental concerns. Nutricosmetics market, hitherto specifically and heavily focused towards women consumers is now changing track and also looking at the hugely unpenetrated and high potential market for male health and grooming products. While the products formulated for managing age-related issues occupy the largest share of the beauty drinks market, drinks promoting the overall skin radiance have also gained acceptance. Tablets, capsules, gels and drinks are some of the most prevalent ingestion modes available in the market.

Europe represents the single most influential market for nutricosmetics products, as stated by the new research report on Nutricosmetics. The European market has a well-entrenched legal structure for medical/health and food products, and nutricosmetics market is primarily concentrated in the developed markets of France, Germany, UK, Italy and Spain, where anti-aging products largely drive sales. The US nutricosmetics market, although still in an evolving and nascent stage, offers tremendous expansion potential at a CAGR of 14.8% through 2017. Nutricosmetics marketed in the country primarily focus on issues such as outer beauty, weight loss, skin whitening and anti-aging.

Key market participants profiled in the report include, Borba, Inc., Carotech Bhd., Cognis, Denomega Nutritional Oils, Frutarom Industries Ltd, Ferrosan A/S., Frutels LLC, Functionalab, GliSODin Skin Nutrients, Husumer Mineralbrunnem HMB GmbH & Co. K.G, Inn

    Looking Younger In Friends Or Coworkers Eyes Top Factor In Product Reorders According To New Survey From Liberty Health Network, LLC (amazon) (shopzilla)


    Tampa Bay, FL USA (PRWEB) June 19, 2012

    Customers may buy a product like the Beau Visage Non Surgical Facelift Mask to remove lines, smooth wrinkles, lift sags, and reduce blemishes. But customers re-order not for what they want, but for what others see – Says new customer survey taken in June from Liberty Health Network, LLC. (LHN). The survey showed that when others noticed a difference in the users appearance, the customer was 93% more likely to reorder products.

    “We can work to build the perception of what our product does in the mind of the buyer.” Says LHN Chief Operating Officer Russell Bly. “But when it comes to reordering motivation, it appears third-parties control the decision. When a friend or co-worker tells one of our customers that they look younger, our research shows that this comment alone virtually guarantees a reorder. We’ve had customers say that although they couldn’t quantify the actual results, others were quick to see a difference. Sometimes, the difference was apparent after just one application.” Bly said.

    LHN’s Beau Visage Nonsurgical Facelift is well established and has been documented to produce amazing results. The Facelift Without Surgery Mask helps in the reduction of lines, sags, wrinkles and blemishes.

    Through formulators, field testers, chemists and aestheticians, the Beau Visage Non Surgical Facelift Mask presents a one-of-a-kind product to reduce the appearance of aging. LHN and the Beau Visage Facelift Without surgery Marketing Team has worked closely with leading skin care professionals to create a revolutionary Non Surgical Facelift Mask with firming botanicals. With one simple step, our Facelift Without Surgery delivers results unheard of in the industry. Over time, the results are even better.

    This remarkable and proprietary formula has been verified by an independent FDA laboratory to ensure the quality and efficacy of each active ingredient in the Facelift Without Surgery product line.

    “When buyer decisions are driven by an unrelated third party, there is always concern” Said Tracy Grevert, LHN Chief Financial Officer. “We’ve made a lot of investments in our products and marketing. And in the end, it comes down to not what our customers think. It comes down to what those around our customers think. Initially it was scary. But as the survey indicates, having a product that works is really what it all comes down to.”

    To help customers look younger, LHN offers the following products: Beau Visage Non Surgical Facelift Mask; Beau Visage Facial Herbal Toner with Hyaluronic Acid and Witch Hazel (2 Ingredients recommended by TV’s Dr. Oz); Beau Visage Facial Cleanser; Beau Visage Anti Aging Moisturizer. All four of the above products may be purchased individually, or in a complete set on Amazon.Com

    In addition, LHN offers several of the company’s best-selling Mortechem-Free Nutritional Supplements such as AlliSTAR Premium Garlic Supplement; ProZymaCleanse Daily Probiotic, Digestive Enzyme, and Fiber Supplement; O2 Plus Saturated Oxygen Drops; SlimEZ Weight Loss Supplement Capsules; MGA Plus Mangosteen, GoJi, Acai, and Pomegranate Capsules which play an important role in turning back the hands of time.

    Additional products are also offered exclusively on the company’s website for Network Marketing distributor sales.

      Growing Importance of Healthy and Nutritious Diet Fuel Sales of Global Soy Foods Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (amazon) (shopzilla)

      San Jose, California (PRWEB) February 28, 2012

      Follow us on LinkedIn Worldwide soy foods market is driven by increasing awareness among consumers about the health benefits offered, including heart and bone health, as well as protection from cancer. Soy foods initially forayed into the market as a health food product and gradually earned the tag of specialty food. Traditionally, soyfood products have been sold and marketed primarily through retail segments, such as supermarkets and large mass outlets. However, with an increasing portfolio of soy-based products and their expanding applications, the need existed for expanding the products scope to other potential channels as well. Sales through foodservices therefore form an integral part of such prospective channels. Over the years, Soyfoods have moved away from retailing at small natural food stores to mainstream food outlets, buoyed by improvement in taste and product innovations. Soy foods have now emerged as a healthier and convenient dietary alternative to the existing products in developed nations. Even in developing markets, soy foods have found a place in the mainstream market and are provided as packaged foods in several varieties, the shift attributed to market liberalization and improved supply network.

      The market for soy-based products expanded considerably with innovative and continuous launch of various soy products. Formerly, soy products found in retail stores were limited to tofu, bitter-tasting soymilk and poorly textured meat analogues. With advanced technology, development of tasty soy products has become easier. Several types of tasty soy beverages and snacks continue to hit the market every year. The launched IQF technology utilized intermediate moisture meat analogues to improve the quality vastly while encouraging growth. Other products include soy cheese, soy tortillas, soy bars, soy ice creams, soy pastas, soy breakfast cereals, soy breads and soy confections.

      During the past decade, organic soy foods witnessed swift growth within the overall food sector, primarily in the developed US market. The trend is motivated by significant developments that took place in meat analogs and soymilk industry. Organic soy foods are increasingly becoming favorites of traditional consumers and have gained immense popularity among pure vegetarians. Increased demand for organic soy foods is drawing the attention of mainstream food processors. However, despite the general success , the product has its own history of initial challenges. The soy supplements market witnessed a marked slowdown and diminished growth during the period 2006-07, on account of severe anti-soy allegations that surfaced during the time. However, subsequent research and investigations rendered the allegations uncertain on grounds of incorrect research methodology used for such inferences. The soy foods industry, thereafter, recovered from the controversies and has since been marching forward.

      Backed by rapid development, huge population base and rapid growth in promising markets of China, India, Indonesia and Korea, Asia-Pacific represents the largest and fastest growing regional market surging at a strong CAGR of 6.4%, as stated by the new market research report on Soy Foods. Asia also emerges as the leading soy milk consumer worldwide, with a per capita consumption of about 16.4 liters annually. Demand for soy proteins in China and Southeast Asia is progressively expanding, principally due to a gradual shift in peoples life styles and dietary habits. With respect to soy food products, Whole Soy Foods, inclusive of soymilk, soy beverages, meat alternatives, tofu, miso, cereals and others represents the most prominent segment for soy foods.

      Major players profiled in the report include Alpro, Archer Daniels Midland Company, Dean Foods Company, Eden Foods, Inc, Galaxy Nutritional Foods, Inc., Hain Celestial Group, Kikkoman Group, Earths Own Food Company Inc., The Solae Company, and Turtle Island Foods, Inc., among others.

      The research report titled Soy Foods: A Global Strategic Business Report announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides a comprehensive review of the soy foods markets, impact of the recession on the market, current market trends, key growth drivers, recent product introductions, recent industry activity, and profiles of major/niche global as well as regional market participants. The report provides annual sales estimates and projections for soy foods market for the years 2009 through 2017 in value (US$ ) terms for geographic markets, US, Canada, Japan, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Rest of World. Key product segments analyzed include Whole Soy Foods, Soy Ingredients and Soy Oil. The study also provides historic data for an insight into market evolution over the period 2003 through 2008.

          Global Herbal Supplements and Remedies Market to Reach US$107 Billion by 2017, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (amazon) (shopzilla)

          San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 07, 2012

          Follow us on LinkedIn The global herbal supplements and remedies market exhibited robust growth over the decade, with little or apparently no significant decline on account of the recent economic recession. The factors that fueled growth in the market include widespread acceptance of functional foods, rise in consumer confidence to include herbs in preventive health and alternative medicine regimens, supplier innovations, and the much awaited release of Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) for dietary supplements by FDA. The global market, infact, exhibited steady growth during the crisis-ridden period of 2008-2009 and beyond. The importance of healthy diet and good lifestyle dominated the minds of consumers, which could not be dampened even by the financial meltdown witnessed in almost every sector worldwide. In fact, the recession has actually prompted increased preference for dietary supplements. Escalating prices, tighter budgets and high healthcare and lifestyle costs, have actually driven consumers towards the more economical, healthier and safer option of alternative medicine and dietary supplements, to get relief from physical and mental disorders.

          Presently, the market for herbal supplements varies by region based on factors such as consumer awareness, product availability, and forms of delivery, product acceptance, and regional regulations. In the US and Europe, herbal medicines represent a major share of the pharmaceutical market and are included in the regular medical practice. However, the market is highly regulated and extremely difficult to enter, as companies need to pass through rigorous tests before mass production. In countries such as France, Germany, UK and India, herbal supplements along with pharmaceuticals, are sold in drugstores.

          Europe is the largest region for herbal supplements and remedies, as stated by the new market research report on Herbal Supplements and Remedies, accounting for the largest share of the world market. Asia-Pacific and Japan make up the other important markets for herbal supplements on a global basis. In terms of growth rate, the Asia-Pacific market, led largely by China and India is set to pave the way with the highest CAGR of 10.5% through 2017. In terms of the product segments, Multi-Herbs dominates as the largest segment, capturing a significant share of the overall herbal supplements and remedies market worldwide. The segment is also forecast to race ahead of the other markets at the fastest compounded growth rate of 9.15% over the analysis period. Soy and Specialty Herbs are also expected to display strong growth potential in future.

          Women, particularly in the middle-aged bracket, form the major consumer group owing to rising health-consciousness, increased concern for diet, and enhanced attention towards preventive healthcare. Over the years, several manufacturers of herbal supplements have emerged with various alternative therapies to relieve women from widely seen problems such as menopause, insomnia and hot flashes. Baby boomers represent another major consumer group for herbal supplements and remedies.

          A major trend engulfing the marketplace is the rising demand for natural health and food supplements. Fish oils, herbal supplements and other natural offerings such as probiotic acidohiplus and detoxes are emerging as alternatives to conventional synthetic supplements. There is also a substantial increase in the sale of food supplements, despite the slow economy, as large numbers of consumers perceive food supplements as an anti-medicinal, low-cost alternative to lead a healthy life style. Food supplements including omega-3s, herbal extracts, multivitamins, probiotics, chondroitin and glucosamine experienced healthy growth rates despite the economic downturn. Another major trend observed in the market is a shift from single ingredient market to multiple ingredient-based medications for a particular condition. There is also an increased demand for herbal and botanical products in multi formula and combo packed format, as well as for chewable capsules and tablets.

          Key market participants profiled in the report include Arizona Natural Products, Arkopharma SA, Bio-Botanica Inc., Blackmores Ltd., Emami Ltd., Emerson Ecologics, LLC, Himalaya Drug Co., Imperial Ginseng Products Ltd., Indfrag Ltd., International Vitamin Corp.

            Growing Consumer Concerns about Health and Well-being Continue to Drive the Global L-Carnitine Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (amazon) (shopzilla)

            San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 29, 2012

            Follow us on LinkedIn L-carnitine, a specific kind of amino acid, is known to have significant health-related benefits that help to enhance overall quality of life. The substance allows the human body to utilize fats for energy generation instead of exhausting the more critical energy reserves of glycogen. Of late, the product is increasingly becoming an important constituent of various kinds of cosmetics, functional foods, health drinks, and other nutraceuticals. Besides health conscious customers, aging populace also form a key growth driver for L-carnitine market. Aging individuals are potential consumers of anti-aging food products and cosmetics and L-carnitine is considered as an important ingredient for formulating various kinds of anti-aging food products and cosmetics. However, notwithstanding the scientific benefits and properties offered by the product, the market for L-carnitine currently faces comparatively low awareness among consumers.

            Owing to its less exposure in the market as compared to other nutrients, such as vitamins, probiotics, and omega-3 fatty acids, the popularity of L-carnitine is quite less that limits the reach of the nutrient. Even the marketing activities for L-carnitine remains very niche and focused mainly towards the business-to-business segment, through various forms of sales promotion activities such as trade shows, business newsletter, and clinical researches, among others. Moreover, health benefits of L-carnitine are not adequately promoted by manufacturers, particularly when compared with other health ingredients, such as creatine. Therefore, to expand the market for L-carnitine, companies need to speed up marketing and promotional efforts.

            As stated by the new market research report on L-Carnitine, the US represents the largest regional market. Overall growth in the market is mainly stimulated by the growing demand in the weight loss dietary supplements sector. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing market with the prime growth engine being the Chinese L-carnitine market that continues to expand at a rapid pace owing to factors such as economical prices and superior quality. The European market scenario is predominately influenced by increased pressure from low-cost Chinese products. With Chinese companies increasingly entering the international market, competition is expected to intensify further.

              Aging Population and Promotion of Preventive Healthcare Practices Drive the Vitamins Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (amazon) (shopzilla)

              San Jose, California (PRWEB) June 04, 2013

              Follow us on LinkedIn – Vitamins has emerged as one of the most dynamic segments of the health and wellness industry both in developed as well as developing economies. World market for vitamins, including both human healthcare as well as animal nutrition, is poised for healthy growth in the long run, driven primarily by rising health consciousness among consumers, particularly the aging population, and the growing meat consumption in both industrialized and developing countries.

              Growth in the vitamins market witnessed signs of slowdown during the 2007-2009 recession period. Fall in employment rates, reduction in disposable incomes and household wealth, and plummeting per capita spend, resulted in the decline in consumption levels during the period. The market regained poise in 2010 and started witnessing growth on par with the pre-crisis period. Medium to long-term outlook for the market also remains encouraging based on population growth, increase in consumption of vitamin supplements particularly in developing countries, GDP growth, discretionary spends and growing emphasis among consumers for leading longer, healthier and active lives.

              Animal nutrition represents the largest end-use sector for vitamins produced globally. Increasing population and growing affluence are transforming eating habits of people around the world. Consumption of protein rich food, especially meat, is increasing, creating a rush to speed up livestock growth. A concomitant demand is therefore being created for vitamins as additives used in the production of animal feed.

              Growth for vitamins in the human healthcare and personal care market is largely driven by urban consumers. Stressful lives, pollution and increasing awareness about the benefits of vitamins in maintaining good health are contributing to market growth. Magnesium, B-complex vitamins, vitamin E and multivitamin are some of the most widely demanded vitamins/minerals all over the world. With life-expectancy increasing in the face of continuous and rapid developments in medical technology, elderly population is growing, especially in developed countries. In their pursuit for maintaining active lifestyles and preventing age-related diseases, aging baby boomers are gradually transforming into one of the most attractive consumer segments for vitamin product manufacturers. While the older population is opting for vitamin supplements, vitamin fortified foods and cosmetics are engaging the gen-X consumers. An important trend in the human healthcare market has been the clear shift from single vitamins towards multivitamins. Consumers perceive multivitamins as the healthier, economical and more convenient option as a result of which multivitamins are the largest and the fastest growing segment in the overall vitamins market. However, vitamin supplements are expected to face stiff competition from herbal supplements and functional foods in the coming years.

              As stated by the new market research report on Vitamins, Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide trailing a CAGR of 6.1% over the analysis period. Europe and the US constitute the second and third largest regional vitamin markets respectively. In the US, demand is largely driven by shrinking coverage for healthcare. The Asian market is primarily driven by the towering presence of two of the most populated and rapidly developing countries of China and India along with the established Australian market. The burgeoning middle class population in India and China is fueling healthy demand for all vitamin types from human health as well as animal nutrition sectors. China represents the largest producer and consumer of vitamins worldwide.

              Segment-wise, the vitamins market is dominated by Vitamin B Complex. Increasing preference for B vitamin fortified foods is providing new opportunities for growth. B vitamins are also being increasingly used in personal care products strengthening the nutrients cosmetic application. Vitamin D usage in functional foods is expected to open up new avenues for growth worldwide. Few countries have made milk fortification with vitamin D mandatory in order to avert vitamin deficiency-linked diseases. Vitamin E is a key ingredient in lotions, sunscreens and anti-aging creams and is experiencing increased growth as a health supplement.

              Major players covered in the report include Adisseo France S.A.S, Archer Daniels Midland Co., BASF SE, CSPC Pharmaceutical Group Limited, DSM Nutritional Products Ltd., Lonza Group Ltd., North China Pharmaceutical Corporation, Pharmavite LLC, Zhejiang Hangzhou Xinfu Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd., Zhejiang Medicine Company Ltd., and Zhejiang NHU Co. Ltd., among others. In addition to these vitamin manufactures, leading pharmaceutical companies that forayed into the vitamins business include Pfizer Inc., Schiff Nutrition International Inc., and Sanofi, among others.

                    Versatile Applicability Ensures Bright Prospects for Probiotics, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (amazon) (shopzilla)

                    San Jose, CA (PRWEB) October 03, 2012

                    Follow us on LinkedIn Growth in the probiotic market is being driven by the enhanced efficiency of ingredients, which offer products with bio-therapeutic properties. The increased consumption is also a result of the probiotic product being available in the form of dietary supplements and food such as baked and dairy products, which induced major players to integrate probiotics with products such as chocolates, cheese, muffins, and sausages. Another key factor driving growth is the increase in demand for probiotic products by women. Women are the decision takers when it comes to purchase of food and beverages. As a result, the level of awareness about the health benefits of consuming probiotic products for the family is high amongst women as compared to men. Demand for probiotics is also increasing in the field of animal feed, as well as in aquaculture for use as pond cleaners. The use of probiotics during the initial growth stages in chicks is beneficial, and with the aid of genetic engineering, probiotics have the potential to be used for numerous beneficial applications in humans and animals.

                    Growing demand for probiotics resulting from increased awareness of consumers about health benefits is driving introduction of a wide range of novel food and beverage products containing probiotics or the friendly bacteria. Companies are developing and launching new probiotic products such as cream cheeses, smoothies, shelf stable dressings, spreads, milk, vitamins, cottage cheese, baby foods, ice cream, frozen novelties, soft drinks, juices, teas, puddings, spreads, crackers, breads, pizzas, chocolate bars, pasta, salad dressings, cookies, candies, cereals, pet foods, and more to meet the rising market demand. Over the years, several such probiotic products have been introduced into the market and the number is continuously increasing. In categories such as food, beverage, and animal feeds, probiotic and prebiotic supplements have gained a respectable market share, and in recent times, the personal care arena, and skin care in particular, is rapidly emerging as a promising market for probiotics and prebiotics. However, due to stricter government regulations controlling the use of live bacteria in products, many companies have focused their research on utilizing only prebiotics in skin care products.

                    Though the probiotics market witnessed significant growth in the recent past, the market is still in its infancy. Recent trends in the use of probiotics include increased awareness of different qualities of organisms. The trend in the manufacturing sector is production of well-documented strains backed with clinical evidence, which have adherence and capacity to survive gastric acid and bile salts. The probiotics market is witnessing extensive scientific research work as new probiotic strains and applications are under development. Apart from gastrointestinal problems, new target areas for probiotics include inflammatory diseases, allergy prevention, cholesterol reduction, and prevention of colon cancer. Probiotics also possess certain anti-aging effects that can be fine tuned through extensive research to meet requirements of certain sections of the population. All the above trends are important from the end-user or medical perspective. However, there remains a need to ascertain the best method of using probiotics in the most clinically efficient way.

                    The issue of genetically modified cultures threatens probiotics market. To counter this problem, many marketers are promoting their products to be free from genetically modified organisms (GMOs). This relates to ingredients, excepting cultures, which are not the result of genetic engineering. However, there are greater chances of developing new disease-fighting strains in the future that have the potential to raise a new debate over the role of GMOs. There are equally good chances for some GMOs to be healthier than organic, however this area of research is challenging and warrants a careful disposition from probiotic companies.

                    As stated by the new market research report on Probiotics, due to the strain-specific effects of probiotics, they can be put to a variety of applications. Emerging applications for probiotics include weight management, oral care, and beauty among others. Japan and Europe together account for a lions share of the global market for probiotics. However, the US and Asia-Pacific markets are projected to offer the highest growth potential.

                    Major players in the global marketplace include BioGaia AB, Chr. Hansen A/S, Danisco A/S, Groupe Danone, Lallemand-Institut Rosell, Lifeway Foods, Inc., Natren, Inc., Nestl
