After the launch of NEX in 2019, the zone continues to grow for 2020! Japan’s natural extracts zone gathers exhibitors from Japan and overseas, and displays the latest natural extract products, applications and solutions ranging from plant extracts, animal extracts, health product raw materials, and supplements..
Natural extracts play a huge role in both the health and food industries in Japan. They are used as ingredients in pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals, as well as traditional Chinese medicine (known as ‘kampo’ in Japan, and used for over 1,500 years). The market for natural ingredients in Japan is fast-growing, with a market volume predicted to reach USD 2.7 billion in 2022. The demand has outstriped domestic supply, and Japanese manufacturers are increasingly searching for foreign suppliers.
