The COVID-19 pandemic affected industries in various countries, influencing their economic conditions. Lockdowns, business shutdowns, and travel bans in leading countries in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), South & Central America (SAM), and the Middle East & Africa (MEA) negatively affected the growth of various industries, including the food & beverages, and pharmaceutical & nutraceutical industries.

In 2020, various companies announced possible delays in deliveries and a slump in future sales of their products. In addition, the bans on international travel imposed by various governments in Europe, Asia, and North America forced the companies to put their collaboration and partnership plans on a temporary hold. Additionally, lockdowns and disruption in the supply chain initially caused sourcing ingredients and packaging challenges. All these factors hampered the food & beverages and pharmaceuticals & nutraceuticals industry in 2020 and early 2021, thereby hindering the growth of various markets related to this industry, including the global beta carotene market.

However, the demand for dietary supplements and immunity-boosting supplements owing to increasing awareness regarding their health benefits has surged the demand for beta carotene. In addition, the surging demand for natural color from the food and beverages industry further propelled the demand for natural beta carotene. Manufacturers' initiatives to increase production by implementing safety measures for workers propelled the growth of the beta-carotene market during the forecast period. Additionally, surging health-conscious consumers sought out healthier options, leading to the development of functional products with healthier ingredients.
