Top Boosters and Barriers

Medicinal mushrooms have garnered a lot of traction over the years, given their health-enhancing properties. These are extensively used in extraction methods, such as fluids, powder, capsules, and others. A few common types of medicinal mushrooms are reishi, shiitake, cordyceps, turkey tail, chaga, to name a few. The MRFR study suggests that the surge in health problems worldwide have been responsible for the strong growth of the medicinal mushroom extract market, while the rising focus on preventive healthcare have also bolstered their demand to a large extent.

The increasing preference for functional foods among the constantly expanding pool of health conscious population is also cited to be a growth booster in the medicinal mushroom extract industry. Given the rising consumption of vegan food among people due to their health-boosting benefits, players in the medicinal mushroom extract market can be presented with excellent opportunities in the near future. The mounting concerns with regard to the alarming rise in the health issues including obesity, weak immune systems and malnutrition have pushed consumers to opt for enriched and nutritious food & beverages that provide a host of health benefits. The growth in this kind of mindset among people with regard to their health can be a huge plus for the medicinal mushroom extract market.

The surge in R&D activities also seems to be working in favor of the global market, since many of the vendors are highly focused on fortifying their global footprints, while also expanding their offerings and launching new products with medicinal mushroom extracts. To cite an instance, in September 2020, Zoey Henderson launched a line of 0.5% AVB craft beers called Fungtn, which comprise medicinal mushrooms. The brand also caters to vegans and individuals that prefer gluten free products. Some of the beers in this line are Citra Beer brewed with Reishi mushrooms; lager made of Chaga mushrooms and IPA brewed with Lion’s Mane mushrooms.
