Shiitake Mushroom Market Trends

  • Mushrooms' high nutritional value propels market growth.

Shiitake mushroom market CAGR is driven by strong nutritional properties of mushrooms. Mushrooms are considered a superfood because they contain a high concentration of beneficial elements. Mushrooms have more vitamin B2, B3, B5, zinc, and antioxidants than potatoes, carrots, onions, and broccoli.

As a result, makers of packaged foods are adding healthy ingredients like mushroom powder or extract to their goods in order to attract customers.

Moreover, consumer awareness of the potential negative effects of synthetic cosmetics has contributed greatly to the recent spike in demand for natural and organic skincare products around the world. Customers are paying closer attention to labels and seeking products made with natural ingredients.

Mushrooms include a high concentration of vitamins, antioxidants, essential oils and oils, hydrocolloids, proteins, terpenoids, and other bioactive components.
