The global personalized nutrition market size was valued at USD 9.02 billion in 2022. It is estimated to reach USD 35.19 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 16.33% during the forecast period (2023–2031).
The personalized nutrition approach is based on customized nutritional intake and personal diet per an individual's health goals. Personalized nutrition plans improve health and minimize risks associated with developing chronic conditions such as obesity, type II diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. Each individual has unique dietary requirements, as some people opt for customized food for good hair, skin, and nails, while some prefer foods with the least environmental impact. Several consumers adopt ideal diet plans based on their genetic makeup, lifestyle, and environment. Nutrient intake and dietary plans can be adjusted according to the personal health goals of people.
The foundation of personalized nutrition is the approach that one size does not fit all. Personalized nutrition uses genetic testing to customize the medical treatments of an individual. These dietary recommendations are based on consumers' genetic profiles, metabolism, microbiome composition, and personal wellness goals. Genetic testing kits enable a better understanding of an individual's nutrient intake and nutritional requirements through DNA testing and further understanding of ancestry and family heritage. GeneGene testing may uncover genetic variants that influence dietary components.
Digital healthcare solutions contribute to the enhancement of individual health and wellness. From wearable devices to ingestible sensors and mobile health applications to artificial intelligence, digital healthcare encompasses it all. The nutritional requirements and responses to dietary consumption could vary from person to person. Thus, healthcare professionals offer customized dietary recommendations through personalized digital tools such as mobile applications as people seek quick diagnosis, timely advice, treatment, and reassurance about adequate nutritional intake.
Adopting deep-learning and AI approaches to analyze customer interactions contribute to developing sophisticated chatbots and other customer feedback analytics tools. Such tools will enable consumers to get customized recommendations based on past interactions. Further, the global transformation in digital health is being driven by significant technological companies. For example, Google has a stake in the market for wearables that measure health through its Fit and Google Wear health platforms. Such factors drive market growth.
Consumers are starting to identify the link between healthy food intake and preventing diseases such as type II diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. The growing prevalence of chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease is accelerating the demand for weight management products such as diet products, fitness equipment, and appropriate nutrition. Additionally, the increase in disposable income has increased the purchasing power of consumers, which could boost the procurement of weight management products in the forecast period.
Consumers are increasingly opting for immune-supporting nutraceuticals and healthy foods. Moreover, nearly nine in ten consumers actively take measures to prevent sugar contained in products. People understand the significance of nutrition for a healthy lifestyle, which has made it imperative for manufacturers, businesses, and governments to collaborate and drive the revolution forward. Consumers worldwide are shifting toward data-driven and science-based personalized nutrition products, such as dietary supplements and nutraceuticals, functional foods and beverages, sports nutrigenomics, and digitalized DNA, driving the market growth.
Cost and affordability are obstacles to obtaining sufficient, cheap, nutritious food that satisfies dietary demands and food preferences for an active and nutritious life. Healthy diets can be found worldwide for between USD 3 and USD 5 per day. Healthy diet costs are often high and exceed most countries' per capita food expenditures. Over 57% of the population in Sub–Saharan Africa and Southern Asia cannot afford these diets. Similarly, over 3 billion people worldwide do not earn sufficient income to purchase the cheapest form of healthy foods and dietary supplements, restricting market growth.
The markets for functional foods and nutraceuticals have expanded significantly in recent years. The global personalized nutrition market will expand due to rising consumer desire for healthier lifestyles, particular food selections, and preventative health measures with customized food and healthcare industries. Integrating several technologies based on DNA profiling and gut microbiome analysis provides an in-depth understanding of the dietary sources of vitamins and minerals and overall fitness and health.
For instance, Segterra, a provider of online health tools, has developed its InsideTracker application to offer a personalized nutrition model based on questionnaires, blood samples, and genetic makeup. The application helps in tracking health and food intake as per individual requirements. Similarly, Amazon Fresh collaborated with Habit, a personalized nutrition company, to offer consumers optimal nutrition and customized nutrition plans. Researchers from the industry and academia collaborate to run comprehensive studies such as PREDICT, which aims to decipher individual responses to food and make dietary recommendations accordingly, creating opportunities for market expansion.
Based on the product, the global personalized nutrition market is bifurcated into dietary supplements and nutraceuticals, functional food and beverages, sports nutrigenomics, and digitalized DNA.
The dietary supplements and nutraceuticals segment dominates the global market and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 13.54% over the forecast period. Dietary supplements include minerals, vitamins, herbs, amino acids, and enzymes. Dietary supplements combine several ingredients, such as vitamins, minerals, herbs, and amino acids.

The tablets are currently coated with an aqueous coating solution since it makes them safe, protected, and simple to consume.
Chewable tablets, such as vitamin C tablets, are preferred by children and people who experience difficulty swallowing or prefer not to swallow. Although a lozenge is similar to a chewable tablet, it remains in the mouth until completely dissolved and does not require chewing. The size may vary as these tablets deliver more effective nutrients when absorbed through the lining of the mouth. The time and sustained-release tablets incorporate special non-active ingredients that control the release of nutrients over a specified period.
Based on application, the global personalized nutrition market is bifurcated into standard supplement, sports nutrition, and disease-based segments.
The standard supplement segment owns the highest market share and is predicted to exhibit a CAGR of 13.84% over the forecast period.

The multivitamin is a popular supplement that reduces the daily intake of dozens of pills. Calcium, echinacea, fish oil, ginseng, garlic, and vitamin D are the most popular dietary supplements. Regular dietary consumption can help avoid several chronic diseases.
Additionally, it aids in boosting the immune system, which needs essential vitamins and minerals to operate at its best. Furthermore, healthy nutrient intake supports mental well-being as nutrition requirements for iron and omega-3 fatty acids are found in protein-rich foods. Such nutrients are essential for the overall mental well-being of a person and protect against mental health issues.
