Rising Government Concerns to Handle Malnutrition to Foster Market Growth
One of the major reason that is driving the RUTF and RUSF market is increasing cases of malnutrition children and adults all across the world. Extreme poverty and intake of cheap quality of food products are likely to favor the growth of the market. Various government initiatives undertaken to deal with constant growing malnutrition cases around the world will help particularly the market in the developing region grow. Increasing number of schemes by government to help to feed people below poverty line is boosting the market to grow. It has been noted that developing countries are biggest victims when it comes to malnutrition cases. Government in these countries are trying to increase awareness regarding the adverse effect one can have due to malnutrition.
Increasing Number of NGOs and Injuries to Favor Market Growth
Another factor that is acting as a pillar in supporting the growth of the global market is the rise in number of NGOs in all corners of the world. NGOs across the world are continuously trying to slacken the rate of malnutrition by providing the RUSF and RUTF to the one in need. This is expected to increase the demand. However, it has been duly noted that rising demand for local ingredients by consumer and government coupled with rising contamination rates is prognosticated to hinder market growth.
