The key factor augmenting the global mushroom market at the moment is the incorporation of mushrooms in value-added food products. A growing number of consumers are being attracted to up their intake of mushrooms after becoming aware of their health benefits. As a result, the global mushroom market is experiencing a direct increase in demand. Mushrooms are known to possess several valuable properties that help combat diseases such as prostate and breast cancers, recent studies have shown. A lot of the commonly available mushrooms are also rich in selenium and other minerals, making them essential to the diet of consumers who are looking to lose weight by reducing calorie intake.

The global mushroom market is segmented on the basis of commonly produced types, into paddy, reishi or lingzhi, winter, oyster, shiitake, and button. Each type holds a greater prominence in different regions of the world, while a lot of them are prominently available in developed economies due to high demand. On the basis of storage methods, the global mushroom market is classified into processed, canned, dried, frozen, fresh, and chilled. While there is a growing demand for fresh mushrooms, frozen and chilled mushrooms are easier to store and transport than fresh ones, as the latter has a much smaller effective radius of transportation. At the same time, advancements in transportation and packaging options are allowing distributors to transport fresh mushrooms to greater distances, thereby improving the revenue generated by the global mushroom market in general.
