The product's usage in the production of nutritional supplements is expanding, specifically in supplements designed to prevent osteoarthritis among consumers. This broadening application scope is anticipated to drive demand in the upcoming years. As awareness about joint health and osteoarthritis prevention grows, consumers are seeking effective solutions. Nutritional supplements containing this product are becoming increasingly popular due to its potential benefits in preventing osteoarthritis. This demand is expected to rise as more people recognize the importance of proactive joint care and turn to nutritional supplements as a preventive measure. Consequently, the product's incorporation in these supplements is expected to fuel its demand in the market over the coming years.

The industry is expected to experience growth due to the rising number of vegan consumers. This trend is anticipated to drive the demand for products that cater to vegan dietary preferences. While the product is traditionally derived from crustaceans such as shrimp and crab, companies like Cargill and Cyanotech have introduced a pioneering approach by developing vegetarian glucosamine. This innovation involves extracting the ingredient from the 'aspergillus niger' fungi, offering a plant-based alternative that aligns with the preferences of vegan consumers.

The rising global population, coupled with the rapidly expanding healthcare sector and growing consumer awareness about joint and bone health, is anticipated to drive the incorporation of glucosamine into a variety of food and beverage products. Furthermore, the supportive regulatory framework in developed nations concerning the use of this ingredient in the production of food and beverages is expected to boost industry growth in the coming seven years.

However, there are challenges on the horizon. The increasing availability of substitutes such as fish oil and omega-3, which also offer joint health benefits, might pose a threat to the demand for glucosamine-containing products in the forecast period. As consumers have more options to choose from, the market for glucosamine-based products could face competition from these alternatives, impacting the overall demand for glucosamine in the food and beverage industry.
