Published Date : Jan 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Nutritional Supplements market size is expected to be worth around US$ 524.4 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Nutritional Supplements market size was valued at US$ 370.9 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.

Growth Factors

Growing consumer awareness and increasing consumer willingness to spend on nutritional supplements are the key factors driving the market. In addition, rise in disposable income and increase in the number of distribution channels for these dietary products, coupled with improved accessibility, propel market growth.

Rise in geriatric population and increasing prevalence of lifestyle diseases, including obesity and diabetes, further boost demand for nutritional supplements among consumers who are inclined towards a healthy lifestyle. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), more than 12.5 million cases of diabetes were reported in Brazil in 2017. Increase in consumer awareness regarding preventive healthcare and rise in self-directed consumers significantly contribute to the growing product demand.

Emerging local players, growing partnerships and collaborations, rise in mergers and acquisitions, and growing adoption of plant-based ingredients as well as traditional remedies are further expected to impel the product demand. For instance, in December 2018, PepsiCo, Inc. acquired Health Warrior, Inc., a U.S.-based nutrition company, to expand its portfolio in nutrition bars. However, ongoing amendments in the regulatory framework of dietary ingredients and products in many countries, including U.S., Brazil, Australia, and China, are a key challenge impeding market growth.

Report Highlights

the functional foods segment held the largest share of 58.7% in the market. Factors such as an increase in consumer awareness about the benefits of a healthy diet and a rise in demand for nutritional and fortified food additives are contributing to the segment growth. In addition, the presence of a large number of commercialized products is a key factor propelling the growth of the functional foods segment.

Growing demand for probiotics for maintaining digestive wellness is also one of the significant factors propelling the growth of this segment. Recent product innovations and rising mergers and acquisitions are resulting in market expansion, thereby contributing to its large market share. The functional food market is fragmented and leading to the proliferation of new niches, which, in turn, is supporting its growth.

The sports nutrition segment is expected to register a CAGR of 9.1% over the forecast period. Rising consumer interest in sports activities is one of the key factors for its increased growth. Moreover, increasing number of health and fitness centers involved in the endorsement of sports nutrition brands is expected to boost the demand for sports nutrition products over the forecast period. According to the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA), the number of health clubs in the U.S. increased by 5.2% from 36,540 in 2016 to 38,447 in 2017.

The children segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 27.3% in 2020. Factors contributing to its increased market share include an increasing number of new product launches for this category and a rise in the number of children suffering from malnutrition. 

The children segment is likely to emerge as the fastest-growing segment over the forecast period. Advantages associated with nutritional supplements in maintaining general health, boosting immunity, and reducing nutritional deficiency is a key reason responsible for increasing the demand among children. In addition, ongoing research activities to introduce unique flavors and packaging for children is one of the factors expected to boost its demand among children in the coming years.

The adult segment holds a significant share owing to the high adoption of nutritional supplements and the presence of a large population in this age group. The risk of developing chronic diseases is high among this age group, which increases their dependency on preventive alternatives.

The powder is one of the rapidly growing segments in the market. Ease in consumption of supplements in the powdered form among all the age groups is a key factor propelling the demand for powdered formulations. In addition, the availability of a large number of powdered supplements is one of the significant factors that contribute to its increased market share. Increased adoption among active athletes and lower manufacturing costs are expected to bolster the growth of the powder segment during the forecast period. Powders are generally flavored and colored and can be dissolved in any beverage of the patient’s choice, which, in turn, is driving its demand.

Established retail stores are formulating some strategies to maintain their share in the retail business. For instance, in 2017, Vitamin Shoppe launched Brand Defining Stores in around nine locations to increase customer engagement and enhance their overall experience. These stores are easier to navigate and have sports nutrition and protein sampling station, which lets consumers try products before purchase. The huge presence of specialty stores is one of the major factors driving the growth of the bricks and mortar channel. For instance, GNC has more than 4,800 retail stores while Vitamin Shoppe has around 785 stores across the U.S.

E-commerce is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 7.4% over the forecast period. An increasing number of e-commerce platforms, rising self-directed consumers, and a surge in the number of discounts on online platforms are boosting the demand for e-commerce. For instance, in July 2018, Optimum Nutrition, a global sports nutrition brand, offered discounts on many best-selling products for a 72-hour sale on Amazon Prime Day.

Asia Pacific dominated the market and accounted for a 39.5% share of the total revenue. Key factors contributing to the high demand include the presence of a large number of local players, availability of cheap active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), and emerging contract manufacturing hubs, like China, India, and the Philippines. Rising health consciousness and growing interest in sports activities also contribute to regional market growth.

The growing popularity of traditional products is creating growth opportunities for local players to grow. In addition, digital infrastructure is improving in countries such as India and China, which offers huge opportunities for online platforms. Many multinational companies are partnering with local players to strengthen their presence in this region. For instance, in 2018, Jamieson Wellness, a Canadian vitamin and supplement manufacturer, entered into a five-year agreement with MedPlus, an Indian pharmacy chain, to expand its business in Asia.
