Recently, the government affairs service platform of the National Health Commission released information that officially accepted NMN（ β- Nicotinamide mononucleotide) becomes a food additive.
An unnamed pharmaceutical industry analyst said: "NMN has been accepted as a new food additive, indicating that its safety and effect have been recognized. With the improvement of people's requirements for quality of life, the demand for NMN is expected to be released. Domestic enterprises with large-scale production of NMN are expected to fill the domestic gap and open up growth space."
Which fields NMN is applied to
Data shows that NMN is the precursor of coenzyme (NAD+) in human body, and the content of NAD+in human body will decrease with age, which will lead to Alzheimer's disease, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, diabetes, etc. NMN supplementation can increase the content of NAD+in human body and play an anti-aging role.
The above analysts said: "Specifically, NMN can be used in anti-aging, DNA repair, diabetes, exercise and weight loss, neurocognition, cardiovascular, anti alcohol and liver protection, vision and hearing protection, etc. NMN products entered the global market about 2017. Previously, NMN failed to enter the ranks of health food in China, so they were mostly sold in the United States and Japan. This approval as a food additive is expected to further open the market sales space of NMN in China."
A group of data from AIMedia Consulting has well confirmed this statement. In 2020, the market size of China's NMN health care products reached 5.106 billion yuan, up 34.87% year on year. It is expected that the market size will climb to 27.13 billion yuan by 2023. "This time NMN has been approved as a food additive in China, and its market size is expected to grow faster than previously estimated," the analyst added.
Which listed companies have layout
It is understood that the upstream of the NMN industry chain is mainly nicotinamide, ATP, bottled consumables, etc., while the midstream is mainly production enterprises, with two modes of sub-generation factory and independent production, while the downstream is sales channels and consumers.
The above analyst pointed out: "According to the cost and sales price of the NMN industry chain, the upstream of the industry chain is mainly the production of raw and auxiliary materials and warehousing logistics, while the midstream of the industry chain is the process of making NMN raw materials into finished products and spreading channels for downstream sales, with the highest profit. The downstream of the industry chain is mainly to earn channel fees, with a profit rate similar to that of the upstream."
At present, many listed companies are involved in the midstream of NMN. Among them, Jindavi's NMN products are in the hot sale status on Tmall Global, JD and other e-commerce platforms; NMN products developed by Xianqiang Pharmaceutical, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Zhongsheng Pharmaceutical, are produced and sold as chemical products; Dezhan Health said that NMN products are in the research and development stage; Abbott Chemical said that the NMN products launched by its subsidiaries have been sold on cross-border e-commerce platforms.
It is worth mentioning that NMN is not only widely used as a food additive in health products, but also can be used as a cosmetic raw material for anti-aging products. The reporter saw on the official website of the State Food and Drug Administration that there have been many companies' filing information about NMN cosmetics raw materials.
The above analysts gave optimistic comments on the prospects of NMN. He said: "With the extensive application of NMN in the field of health care products and medical and aesthetic products, the market space is expected to show a rapid growth trend, and listed companies with scale and brand effect in the industrial chain are expected to explore business opportunities from the 'antiaging drugs'."
