Betaine Market Trends



  • Expanding consumer demand from the food and beverage sector to boost the market growth


Betaine has been used to treat cancer, diabetes, certain cardiovascular diseases, and cognitive loss. Changing food consumption habits and growth in the demand for healthier foods is another reason projected to fuel the need for betaine over the coming years. Recent industry projections state that by 2020, the organic food business in the United States will account for about 4% of total food sales and be worth $850 billion. Because consumer tastes are evolving towards attractive and healthy packaged foods and beverages, the betaine market is predicted to grow. According to the current survey, 23% of American consumers routinely drink juice. Juice is consumed on average multiple times per week by 30% of the respondents polled. Therefore the growing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases has enhanced the betaine market CAGR globally in recent years.


Over the next years, there is expected to be a significant increase in the global market due to the rising demand for food and drinks, notably in South Asia and the developing BRICS countries. In 2021, 2.5 billion metric tonnes of food were consumed globally. 626 million metric tonnes of bread and cereal products had the most consumption that year. The food and beverage coloring agents market, including natural and artificial colors, will likely develop throughout the projected period, increasing demand for betaine. Thus the rapid expansion and advancement in the food and beverage sector is another factor driving the growth of the betaine market revenue.
