Report Outlook

The global calcium fortified foods market was valued at USD 112.53 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period.

Calcium-fortified foods are gaining traction nowadays, driven by growing health issues among the elderly population due to calcium deficiency at the global level. The rise in health consciousness and food intake is further propelling the expansion of calcium-fortified foods as they are highly incorporated into diets to recover calcium deficiency. Governments are encouraging researchers to find effective solutions for public safety and to tackle ongoing health issues due to a deficiency in health. The rising research and development activities by policymakers to find the solution for calcium deficiency among the population will further boost the demand for calcium-fortified foods in the coming years.

  • For instance, in November 2021, a study published in PubMed Central focused on reviewing the impact of lower calcium content among adults and children and the implementation of calcium-fortified foods in public health programmes.

Moreover, calcium is a crucial element essential for stable body functioning, as 99% of the calcium is present in the human body, including teeth, bones, blood, muscles, & the fluid between two cells. It plays a vital role in maintaining a stable heart-beat & transport of ions across cell membranes.

However, the higher use of calcium supplements may hinder the growth of fortified foods as it is more convenient to have a tablet and more cost-effective compared to the consumption of food due to lower availability in rural and remote areas. 

Growth Drivers

Growing lifestyle diseases due to calcium deficiency

Most people are facing osteoporosis, osteopenia, and rickets due to a lack of nutrients, primarily calcium. Furthermore, the lower presence of calcium leads to metabolic disruptions and may affect body functioning. Tooth decay, brittle nails, and muscle cramps are some of the symptoms of chronic calcium deficiency. According to a study published in PubMed Central, around 200 million people are facing osteoporosis diseases around the world. Based on statistics from the International Osteoporosis Foundation, at the age of 50, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men are expected to witness osteoporotic fractures in their lifetime worldwide. This is driving the demand for calcium-fortified foods in the marketplace. Furthermore, the growing global population necessitates the need for nutritional foods, which will stimulate the growth of the calcium-fortified foods market soon.

By Product Type Analysis

Dairy products segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period

The dairy products segment is expected to grow at a CAGR during the projected period, mainly driven by the rising popularity of healthy and natural diets among consumers. The increasing awareness about natural calcium-dense food products is further propelling the demand for dairy products. Based on the article published over the internet, vanilla yogurt (low-fat) with a serving size of 8 ounces presents 388 mg of calcium, while one cup of milk, 1% and a half cup of ricotta cheese, and whole milk constitute 310 mg, and 289 mg, respectively. The increasing availability of smartphones and the internet is reducing the asymmetry of information about healthy foods among the population, contributing to the demand for healthy foods, including calcium-fortified foods, in the coming years.

The non-dairy segment led the industry market with a substantial revenue share in 2022, largely attributable to the rising adoption of vegan and plant-based diets in the marketplace. The increasing vegan food culture is stimulating the demand for non-dairy and plant-based products to improve their nutritional gap. This will fuel the need for calcium-fortified foods as they play an effective role in improving the calcium levels of their consumers, driving growth in the global market in the next few years.

By Application Analysis

Food segment registered the largest market share in 2022

The food segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022 and is likely to retain its market position throughout the forecast period. The growing consumer preferences towards natural nutritional food products, the rising concerns about the cooking process of convenience foods, and the growing awareness about the disadvantages of processed food are propelling the demand for calcium-fortified foods in the market. This includes cheese, butter, yogurt, and more. The changing consumer preferences are contributing to this segmental growth in the coming years.

The processed food segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate over the next few years on account of the rapid surge in demand for processed food items worldwide. This processed food includes infant formula, powdered beverages, fruit and vegetable juices, and others. The rising demand for healthy drinks is enhancing the demand for calcium-fortified foods in the coming years.

By Sales Channel Analysis

E-commerce segment held the significant market revenue share in 2022

The e-commerce segment held a significant market share in revenue in 2022, which is highly accelerated due to the continuous rise in online purchases due to their ease of use and convenience for people, primarily working professionals. The establishment of user-friendly app interfaces by e-commerce platforms is enabling consumers to access a wide range of food products with a click. This increased the availability of products to a wider audience, including rural, remote areas and urban cities, enhancing the demand for calcium-fortified foods in the study period.

Regional Insights

North American region dominated the global market in 2022

The North American region dominated the global market. The growing consumption of dairy products, including milk, yogurt, and cheese, to increase calcium levels among the population is driving the growth of calcium-fortified foods in this region. Furthermore, in the US, around 72% of calcium intake comes from dairy products and non-dairy ingredients. It is expected to witness the growth of calcium-fortified foods, including fruit juices, ready-to-eat cereals, tofu, and drinks, in the next few years.

The Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the fastest-growing region with a healthy CAGR during the projected period, owing to the removal of trade restrictions in the region. For instance, the recent Australia-India Economic Cooperation and Trade Agreement (AI-ECTA), introduced in 2023, improved access to the largest segment of the 1.4 billion population in India and reduced the 90% tariff on food and agricultural exports. It includes infant formula, fruit, sheep meat, wool, horticulture, seafood, and more, which may further fuel the expansion of calcium-fortified foods in the region in the coming years.

Key Market Players & Competitive Insights

The calcium-fortified foods market is fragmented and highly dynamic and is expected to witness competition due to the existence of higher market players along with the ongoing expansion activities to innovate effective food products to cater to ongoing consumer interests, driving new product launches in the marketplace. For instance, Abbott introduced its Arachitol Gummies in India in 2022. It is an orange fruit-flavored product, particularly made for children and adults, to improve vitamin D intake as it absorbs calcium for good bone health along with micronutrients, including calcium and curcumin.

Some of the major players operating in the global market include:

  • Abbot
  • Arla Foods amba

Recent Developments

  • In February 2021, a study published in the National Library of Medicine performed a systematic review and meta-analysis on the health outcomes of consuming calcium-fortified foods, involving participants of any age and gender. The study concluded that there is a higher calcium concentration in fortified foods.
