Cannabinoids Market Size

Cannabinoids Market size was worth more than USD 11.5 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 20% through 2030. Increasing demand for CBD products due to their health benefits will push the overall market growth.

Cannabinoids Market

The cannabinoids industry is expanding rapidly driven by the product’s incredible health benefits, including therapeutic capabilities and its use in veterinary medicines. The medicinal characteristics of Phytocannabinoids found in the cannabis plant in addition to the primary ingredient 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) have come to light recently; products such as cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), and tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) are consequently receiving a lot of interest. Owing to the numerous uses of cannabinoids, the demand for personal care products such as body lotions, oils, and capsules has skyrocketed. Vaping items and their rising popularity among young people due to the latest trends have also contributed to the market revenue.

Cannabinoids Market Trends

The growing use of cannabinoids, including CBD-based products for medical ailments will accelerate the industry expansion. Several pharmaceutical firms are deploying cannabis to alleviate pain and diseases such as asthma. Primarily triggered by the implementation of the Farm Bill in the U.S., there has been an exponential growth in the cannabinoids market given the product’s ability to manage anxiety, seizures, muscle disorders, and Parkinson’s disease, among others.

Sales of fake and synthetic products may restrain the market size

The rising demand for cannabidiol products has made it possible for illegal manufacturers to develop similar fake goods devoid of cannabis extracts, which will have a negative effect on the cannabinoids market expansion. These synthetic products instead contain chemical compounds that produce similar effects comparable to those of cannabidiol or cannabinol while also having adverse effects on the body. For instance, In February 2020, more than 2,800 patients were hospitalized of which over 68 fatalities were recorded in the US alone, resulting from the adverse effects of e-cigarette, vaping, and use-associated lung injury (EVALI).
