The sweet potato segment is estimated to hold the largest share of the biofortification market in 2018. The demand for biofortified crops such as sweet potato and cassava has increased with the rising technological advancements to increase the nutrient content, particularly in orange-fleshed sweet potato (OFSP). Sweet potato has been an important source of energy in the human diet for centuries owing to its high carbohydrate content. However, its vitamin A content from carotene only became recognized over the past century. Using biofortification, sweet potato breeding in Africa is focused on higher yields, sweeter taste, and higher dry matter, which increase its carotene concentration.

The Asia Pacific is the dominant region in the biofortification market. Biofortification has strong growth potential in agriculture, and it also improves the nutrition content in food. The biofortification market has grown considerably over the last five years, and this trend is expected to continue in the near future. The growing consumer demand for high nutritional content in food is projected to fuel the demand for biofortified crops, globally.
