Raw material costs are expected to rise as a result of trade restrictions, delays in raw material supply, disruptions in supply-demand chain, and ineffective distribution channels caused by COVID-19. Non-availability and higher priced and better quality raw materials, as well as high manufacturing costs, are expected to pose limitations to the global functional ingredients market growth. Safety of the food supply chain has also taken a more serious note and become more imperative in the current COVID-19 scenario.

Vitamin supply was limited since key vitamins are imported by companies in various countries, and COVID-19 had a negative impact on the transportation and logistics networks worldwide. Because of ongoing trade restrictions, manufacturers are looking for substitute ingredients. Local businesses and domestic raw material suppliers are expected to benefit as a result.
