Its several therapeutic properties in ayurvedic medicinal formulations, such as in the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant areas, will drive curcumin-based dietary supplement demand. The associated benefits of curcumin in lessening depression, metabolic syndrome, and managing lipid levels will also foster the curcumin market growth over the forecast timeframe.

The novel coronavirus has impacted every industry around the world. The demand side of the curcumin industry is positively impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, increasing its demand in the food and pharmaceutical industries. While on the supply side, the supply of curcumin has slowed down due to global lockdown and the temporary shutdown of manufacturing plants to prevent infection.

The transportation of finished goods and raw materials is also blocked due to worldwide lockdown. This factor may decline the profit margins of manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors in the market. India is one of the major producers of curcumin; however, the COVID-19 pandemic has extremely impacted the industry, causing huge losses to players in the regional market.

Curcumin provides both pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects; however, curcumin is not often recommended as it is rapidly metabolized with low absorption into the bloodstream that limits its properties. Therefore, this factor may restrict the growth of curcumin market in the current scenario. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration does not provide any regulation on curcumin-based supplements, so supplement effectiveness may vary from brand to brand and even from batch to batch. For instance, supplements that are labeled as containing over 95% of curcuminoids may contain more or less of the content. This factor may break the trust of consumers and may cause serious health effects when high-dose supplements are consumed.
