Malnutrition is a big problem in underdeveloped economies like Africa and Asia, and it's becoming worse as the world's population grows. Malnutrition kills 3.1 million children under the age of five each year, according to the World Food Program (WFP), a statistic that is rising with each passing year. The implementation of community-based treatment and management of acute malnutrition, together with the invention of RUTF and RUSF, has substantially boosted the efficiency and effectiveness of therapeutic feeding care according to UNICEF & WHO data. As a result, the demand for RUTF & RUSF products will continue to rise in the future years, indicating the worldwide growth of the RUTF & RUSF market.
COVID-19 pandemic drastically increased the demand for RUTF & RUSF. Low-income countries in South Asia and Africa primarily contributed to the significant demand for RUTF & RUSF during the pandemic. In these areas, unemployment, economic slowdown, and hunger have all become major concerns during the pandemic. Because of increased unemployment, food shortages, and low living conditions, an increasing number of individuals are becoming malnourished. UNICEF, WFP, Save the Children, and other Government organizations are working on supplying more RUTF & RUSF products to impacted populations in such low-income nations in order to combat malnutrition.
The nutritious value of RUTF and RUSF products is their USP. Manufacturers in the global RUTF & RUSF market are concentrating their efforts on creating more nutritional content that will meet the demands of newborns, children, and working adults. RUTF & RUSF items are simple and easy to distribute to people of all ages in the community, and they're also easier to transport through disasters and emergencies. For instance, Insta Products Ltd. produces protein-vitamin-rich RUTF and RUSF porridge products that are suitable for infants, young children, and adults at a low cost. Furthermore, Nutty Butta RUTF is a healthy, high-protein diet made from excess cheese and non-fat dry milk for malnourished children and adults, developed by Tabatchnick Fine Foods, Inc. Due to heavy demand for nutrition-rich food products, manufacturers are also investing more in new product launches which in turn fuels the market growth.

The high cost of the products may hinder market growth.
In the present RUTF formulation Peanuts, vitamins & minerals, vegetable oil, and milk powder are all included. The cost of these ingredients is quite high, resulting in a higher final product cost. The number of people in need of treatment far outnumbers the amount of money available for this reason. As a result, there is a substantial need for cost-effective raw material alternatives. In RUTF & RUSF products, the adoption of alternative and cost-effective ingredients can help to lower the total cost. Until then the high cost of the nutrients used in RUTF and RUSF poses a major hindrance to the global RUTF & RUSF market growth.
Big and mid-size corporations are increasing their spending on SCR activities which is projected to offer better growth opportunities for market expansion.
According to UNICEF and WHO, over 33 million children under the age of five suffer from moderate acute malnutrition (MAM), whereas 19 million children under the age of five suffer from severe acute malnutrition (SAM). These rising numbers are causing everyone to be concerned. As a result, many corporations are stepping up to assist and feed these youngsters through CSR initiatives. The demand for RUTF and RUSF products is being driven by these causes. Companies like the Tata Trust, Adani Group, and others are donating large sums of money to provide RUTF and RUSF products to children in India and throughout the world.
Issues with quality and inconsistency in RUTF milk products pose a major challenge to the market growth.
UNICEF places a high priority on ensuring the quality of RUTF products. Given the nature and health state of the intended benefit to children, the presence of microbiological contaminants in peanut and milk-based diets constitutes a risk. Present microbiological guidelines are based on the most recent guidance from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) on the microbial safety of lipid-based ready-to-eat meals for waste management. However, most of the time the food is spoiled due to improper storage conditions or transport which cannot be utilized by consumers. These factors pose major challenges to the global RUTF & RUSF market growth.
The global RUTF & RUSF market is categorized based on type, application, and region. Based on type, the market is categorized into ready-to-use therapeutic food and ready-to-use supplementary food.
