Global Beta-Carotene Market 2023
Beta-carotene is a naturally occurring pigment and antioxidant that belongs to the group of carotenoids. Carotenoids are organic compounds found in various fruits, vegetables, and plants, giving them their vibrant colors. Beta-carotene, specifically, is responsible for the orange color found in carrots, sweet potatoes, and pumpkins.
As an antioxidant, beta-carotene helps protect the body against damage caused by harmful free radicals. It has been associated with several health benefits, including supporting eye health, boosting the immune system, and potentially reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases. In addition to its role as a precursor to vitamin A, beta-carotene also exhibits pro-vitamin A activity, which means it can be converted by the body into vitamin A when needed. Vitamin A is essential for maintaining healthy vision, promoting proper cell growth, and supporting immune function.
The global beta-carotene market is likely to register a CAGR of over 3.8% with an incremental growth of USD 98.3 million during the forecast period 2023-2029.

This industry report offers market estimates and forecasts of the global market, followed by a detailed analysis of the end user, and region. The global market for beta-carotene can be segmented by end user: animal feed, dietary supplements, food and beverages, personal care and cosmetics. The rising awareness among consumers about the health benefits of beta-carotene is leading to an increased demand for products that contain this compound. Beta-carotene is known for its antioxidant properties and its potential role in promoting eye health, immune function, and skin health. This growing awareness has resulted in a greater demand for dietary supplements, functional foods, and beverages that incorporate beta-carotene. The increasing use of beta-carotene as a natural colorant in the food and beverage industry is also contributing to market growth. As consumers shift towards clean-label and natural products, there is a growing preference for food and beverages that use natural colorants rather than synthetic ones. Beta-carotene, with its vibrant orange color, serves as a natural alternative to synthetic food colorings.
Furthermore, as consumers become more conscious of the quality and safety of animal products, there is a growing preference for livestock raised using natural feed additives. Beta-carotene, derived from natural sources such as algae or plants, fits this requirement and is thus gaining popularity in animal feed formulations.
Beta-carotene is known for its pro-vitamin A activity, which means it can be converted into vitamin A in the animal’s body. Vitamin A is essential for various physiological processes in animals, including vision, growth, reproduction, and immune function. By supplementing animal feed with beta-carotene, farmers can ensure that their livestock receives an adequate amount of vitamin A, promoting overall health and development.
Additionally, beta-carotene acts as an antioxidant in animal feed, helping to protect against oxidative stress and improving the immune system. It supports the animals’ defense mechanisms, making them more resistant to diseases and enhancing their overall well-being.
The growing commercial livestock industry, particularly in regions like Asia-Pacific and Latin America, is also driving the demand for beta-carotene in animal feed. The need to meet the rising demand for meat, milk, and eggs has led to increased investment in animal nutrition. Beta-carotene is being recognized as a valuable feed additive to improve the performance and quality of animal products.
Beta-carotene market is further segmented by region: Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, RoW (Rest of World). Asia-Pacific held the largest share of the global beta-carotene market in 2022 and is anticipated to hold its share during the forecast period.
