COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Thus, with the spread of COVID-19, consumers have increased their desire for vegan foods, such as adaptogenic mushrooms, which help them develop immunity and combat the virus. Thus, the demand for therapeutic mushroom-based foods and supplements is increasing. As a result, the market for adaptogenic mushrooms is growing, as they offer the body all the nutrients it needs to function properly.

Market Growth Factors

Growing demand in pharmaceutical industry

The rise of the market for adaptogenic mushrooms is stimulated by the fact that functional molecules from mushrooms improve patients' quality of life on lifelong treatment drugs. Moreover, functional mushrooms can boost other treatments and complement contemporary therapy when used as medication. The increasing preference for using natural goods, like functional mushrooms, in conventional therapies is driving market expansion. In addition, ongoing research into the bioactive metabolites of mushrooms is anticipated to expedite the use of adaptogenic mushrooms in medicinal applications for the foreseeable future.

Growing health consciousness among consumers

Innovations for creating new gourmet dishes employing adaptogenic mushrooms and the rising demand for high-quality food products are driving market expansion. The expansion of distribution channels and the increasing availability of functional mushrooms via e-commerce portals are major factors in the market's expansion. Furthermore, growing government efforts to encourage mushroom cultivation and meet rising demand provide additional impetus for market expansion. In addition, the increasing penetration of market participants and the expansion of the distribution of high-quality mushrooms are anticipated to be important market drivers for adaptogenic mushrooms over the coming years.

Market Restraining Factors

Lack of research and concerns regarding raw products’ quality

Since medicinal mushrooms are a relatively new trend, many dietitians did not obtain much education or training on the topic. Another major obstacle is sourcing; many therapeutic mushrooms cannot be taken in their natural, unprocessed form, so processing is required. However, many of these mushrooms are supplied from foreign countries, which may raise environmental and pesticide safety concerns. Hence, the lack of study conducted on these mushrooms, which causes consumers to seek out information about the product on their own, and worries surrounding the quality of the raw product, may restrain market expansion.

Product Outlook

Based on product, the adaptogenic mushrooms market is segmented into reishi, chaga, turkey tail, lion’s mane, cordyceps and others. In 2021, the reishi segment held the highest revenue share in the adaptogenic mushrooms market. Reishi's potential health advantages and long-standing use in herbal medicine drive its demand as an adaptogenic fungus. Traditional Chinese medicine has utilized reishi mushrooms to boost immune system health and lengthen life. Reishi, an adaptogenic mushroom, is becoming more well-known in the wellness sector as a natural way to enhance the body's capacity to respond to stress and advance general well-being.
