Turmeric, also known as curcumin, is frequently used in cosmetics. Turmeric is a crucial component of many Ayurvedic medications in India. It is used to repair and prevent dry skin, treat eczema and acne, and slow down the aging process. An active component called curcumin is frequently derived from ginger and turmeric.

Due to its therapeutic characteristics, turmeric is frequently used in South East Asian nations' food and pharmaceutical items. When combined with turmeric, natural cleansers like milk can be used as effective natural cosmetics. These cosmetics are meant to achieve flawless skin, stop the development of wrinkles, and lessen their appearance.

Growing public awareness of natural food ingredients will drive curcumin market expansion throughout the forecast period. Due to the health advantages of organic products, consumers are willing to spend higher rates to buy them.

Customers who want to take advantage of all of turmeric's health benefits are in great market demand for organic turmeric. However, consumers believe that natural colors pose less of a health risk than petroleum(coal-tar)-derived synthetics. As a result, producers include them in their goods to gain an advantage.

The COVID-19 pandemic had some impact on the curcumin market. The consumption of curcumin is likely to swiftly reach its pre-COVID level, and the market is estimated to see an exponential growth rate throughout the projection period, in line with the increasing traction for curcumin as a therapy for viral infections around the world.

Due to its antiviral qualities, it is one of the natural substances that has been the subject of much investigation. It also demonstrates a broad spectrum of therapeutic effects, including antibacterial, cardioprotective, anti-inflammatory, and neurological properties.

Worldwide clinical investigations carried out by research organizations have demonstrated that curcumin possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory characteristics, making it appropriate for use in the creation of dietary supplements and cosmetic formulations. As a result, the market demand has greatly increased.

Consumers are increasingly aware of the harmful effects of consuming animal products and the environmental ramifications that follow on a global scale.

Cosmetics Industry segment is expected to witness the fastest growth

The cosmetics application category is anticipated to develop significantly. The product's anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging qualities can be largely blamed for its suitability for cosmetic applications. After being exposed to UV radiation, the body produces free radical species, which then interact with fatty acids, protein, and DNA to further irritate the epidermis.

Those free radicals harm the skin as well, resulting in apparent signs of photoaging, such as hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and a loss of skin firmness. Products with curcumin in them can lessen these effects. As a result, big brands in the beauty and personal care sectors are progressively adding it as an additive. Growing consumer interest in organic products and increasing consumer understanding of the benefits of those products will support curcumin market expansion over the forecast period.

Conventional segment industry accounted for the highest market share in 2021

As conventional goods are readily available and inexpensive when compared to organic goods, conventional farming is the predominant method used in these nations. As a result, the traditional sector will continue to hold a significant amount of the curcumin industry.

Around 80% of the world's production of turmeric is produced in India, which is followed in production by other countries like China, Myanmar, Nigeria, and Bangladesh. Farmers in these nations prefer to use agricultural goods that are readily and inexpensively available because their annual incomes are comparably lower than those of farmers in Europe and North America.

Pharmaceutical segment is expected to hold the significant revenue share

Curcumin has been used as a spice, preservation, fabric color, and in conventional medicine for thousands of years. It is one of the three primary coloring substances taken from the roots of the Asian-grown Curcuma longa plant.

Indian cuisine has employed turmeric for a very long time. Western nations have slowly increased their market demand for the food and beverage business over the past few years as a result of increased knowledge of natural herbs and spices. Curcumin is highly sought after in the Ayurvedic medicine, cosmetics, food ingredient, and natural additives industries because of its antioxidant, or anti-cancer effects.

The demand in North America is expected to witness significant growth

Numerous high-end cosmetics companies are based in North America, and these businesses are moving more and more toward using organic ingredients in their products, which opens up new curcumin market potential.

As customers are becoming more aware of the product's therapeutic characteristics and health advantages, demand for the product has increased in the U.S. over the past several years. The substance is also widely utilized in tissue engineering, and because it is non-toxic, businesses are progressively investing in research to expand its use in the pharmaceutical industry.

Turmeric has been a key component of many different Indian dishes. Although it hasn't been used much later in the food and beverage business, recent research and analysis have increased demand for it as a flavor enhancer and coloring ingredient. Additionally, the market for traditional medicines is continuously growing as consumer knowledge of them rises. During the forecast period, this aspect is anticipated to boost curcumin usage, which will help the market develop.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to have the second-fastest CAGR. This is mostly because fewer people in the area are aware of curcumin's health advantages. Lower consumer awareness, however, presents a fantastic chance for brand owners to inform the public and provide items that meet local needs. The expansion of the regional market is also anticipated to be fueled by the increased market demand for ayurvedic and herbal personal care products that include curcumin.

Turmeric is frequently imported into Europe and converted to curcumin, which is mostly utilized in the cosmetic business. Due to the presence of major cosmetic businesses' manufacturing facilities in Europe, which serves as a worldwide hub for the industry, demand for cosmetics is always rising. The fast growth of the food and beverage sector in Europe offers turmeric processors the chance to introduce cutting-edge goods into the market.
