Report Description

Mushroom MarketGlobal Mushroom Market was around US$ 40 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to reach above US$ 75 billion by 2027 displaying an elevated CAGR of ~9% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Mushroom is an umbrella-shaped fruiting body of a certain macro-fungi group that is fleshy and nutrient-rich. They can appear above or below the ground and are edible as it provides strong umami flavor and several health benefits.

The deficiency and inadequacy of micronutrients constitute a global health issue. Despite the abundant sunshine present in many of the countries across the globe, there has been a rise in the number of people with vitamin D deficiency owing to the lack of food fortified with, vitamin D. For instance, as per recent observational data, nearly 40% of the Europeans are vitamin D deficient and almost 13% are severely deficient. Owing to these facts and the increase in health-conscious population, there has been growing demand for mushrooms among the consumers as mushrooms contain Vitamin D and have the ability to synthesize it when exposed to UV light or sunlight exposure.


Furthermore, the rising demand for clean label cosmetics and growing consumer awareness regarding the product formulation and ingredients is gaining significant traction in the market. Therefore, many beauty & personal care product manufacturers are being increasingly using plant-based ingredients while formulating their products which in turn is expected to have a positive impact on the demand for mushrooms. For example, as per the study published in 2019, bets-glucan, found in mushrooms aids in improving the skin barrier, making it particularly attractive to those with sensitive skin. Also, the different varieties of mushrooms can provide unique beauty benefits due to which it has been touted by many skincare experts. For example, the Shiitake mushroom, one of the most readily eaten mushrooms is rich in kojic acid and helps to brighten the skin, fades dark spots and acne scars, and treat hyperpigmentation.
