DALLAS, November 24, 2011 -

ReportsnReports adds new market research report ‘The Future of Functional Food and Beverages: Bone and Joint Health‘ to its store. The functional bone and joint health market has been characterized by a lack of vibrancy. A high consumer interest/consumption disconnect is reflective of industry players struggling to market niche ingredients outside of calcium and vitamin D, with consumers often looking to ordinary everyday products, believing that they do not require a fortified product to get their recommended daily intake.

Features and benefits

  • Identify the size of the functional bone and joint health market across 20 countries and growth prospects up until 2015
  • Evaluate the potential impact on consumer demand of marketing and product development through utilizing consumer, product and market insight
  • Identify and capitalize on the main consumer trends that are driving rising demand for functional products
  • Gain an understanding of the main obstacles that brands are encountering and how these can be overcome


The status of bone and health conditions as being painful rather than life-threatening means that consumer fears do not match those of other conditions. Brands must seek to convince consumers that they are not getting enough calcium in their normal diets and that consuming functional products will safeguard against problems in later life.

The category has expanded its presence beyond traditional “breakfast” products such as fortified milk, juice and yogurt into a broader range of products from snacks to confectionery, sauces, and even ready meals. Brands have also become more adept at emphasizing the natural occurrence of bone- and joint-friendly ingredients in existing products.

In overcoming the interest/consumption gap that characterizes developing markets, the industry must seek to overcome issues such as lack of availability and affordability, and take into account regional dietary preferences. Moreover, clarity of communication is imperative, and the primary focus should be to educate the consumer.
