Executive Summary – Biofortification Market Report and Patent Landscape Analysis – 2026

Biofortification Market Report – The market for biofortification is developing at a substantial pace and is not expected to become saturated during the forecasted period from 2019 to 2026. The idea behind the whole process of biofortification is the breeding of nutritious plants, which industry experts consider much cheaper than the addition of micronutrients in the foods that are already processed. Biofortification also acts as a prime strategy for the enhancement of proportion of micronutrients in staple foods and minimize the micronutrient deficiencies in the consumers. As per the agriculturists and nutritionists, it is a smart way of fighting malnutrition.

The global market for biofortification has been recorded at $72.75 million in 2018 which is projected to become ## million in 2026 with the CAGR of ## percent. As per the consultative group for international agricultural research, approximately two billion people in the developing countries are suffering from vitamin and mineral deficiencies causing frequent and serious sickness which can also lead to death, impaired cognitive abilities, constrained work performance, stunting, and blindness, all of which result in the reduction of economic growth and prolonged and widespread poverty. Additionally, according to WHO in 2018, the malnutrition burden is too high and the progress is too slow. Malnutrition is the reason for more ill health than any other cause across the world. ## million children below five years of age are stunted, ## million are overweight, and ## million are wasted. Additionally, # million babies across the world are born of low birth weight every year. Obesity and overweight among adults are also at a record level of ## percent, stretching from North America and Africa. Moreover, one third among all women of reproductive age suffer from anemia and women have a higher obesity prevalence than men. Millions of women across the world are still underweight. Due to all this nutritional deficiency in the world, the demand for biofortified crops is anticipated to fuel the biofortification market on a global scale.

Analyst Review

The growing demand for food with high nutrition content is increasing the demand for biofortification. Increasing health-related issues and rising incidences of nutritional deficiencies, and rising health awareness among the consumers are some of the main factors driving the global biofortification market. Apart from these, emergence of technological developments and increasing investments in the agricultural sector are also having a positive impact on the global biofortification market.

The restraints involved in the growth of global biofortification market include low awareness about the benefits associated with the consumption of biofortified crops and restriction in the production of genetically modified crops. The 2008 Copenhagen Consensus, consisting of the world’s leading economists, calculated the health benefit-to-cost ratio of nutritious crops as $17 for every one dollar invested.

The trait remains in a crop like once a particular micronutrient is bred into it making the process of biofortification cost effective and sustainable. A cost comparison between fortification, biofortification and supplementation was conducted by researchers at HarvestPlus. It was found that one-year supplementation of vitamin A for 37 million school children India, Pakistan Bangladesh can be bought for a cost of $ 75 million. The same amount of money can buy sufficient iron fortification for one year for the same number of people. It is also the cost of advancing and disseminating zinc and iron-rich and wheat varieties for South Asian countries, which is expected to be available, without much investment, year after year.

Asian companies, especially, have emerged as dominating destinations, hence facilitating a market shift to developing countries from developed countries. Africa is anticipated to be the fastest growing regional market. One of the primary drivers for biofortification market growth is that the increasing use of food with high nutritional content as the consumer awareness about healthy diets is increasing.

On the basis of crops variety, cereals segment is anticipated to record the largest share in the biofortification market in 2018 as they are a prime source of energy in the human diet. Africa is expected to be the fastest growing region in the cereals market owing to the ease of biofortified sweet potato with nutrients like vitamins, zinc and iron.

Biofortification patent landscape is dominated by commercial companies over universities and research institutes. Bayer AG holds the largest patent portfolio in Biofortification with 1007 IP assets. It has been one of the pioneers in innovative research in Biofortification space and has continuously filed for patents along with Stine Seed farm Inc which has a portfolio of 396 Biofortification patents.
