Nutritional Supplements in the U.S., 6th Edition
Need a comprehensive source of data and analysis on the nutritional supplement industry? Look no further than Nutritional Supplements in the U.S., the 6th edition of Packaged Facts’ leading market research survey on this projected $16.4 billion market.
This is a market that has experienced ups and downs. Negative press about supplement safety and effectiveness not surprisingly had a chilling effect – sales of products slowed in 2013, going into 2014. Consumer eating habits also had an effect – with people eating more functional foods and beverages, there was less need to supplement a meal with pills. Functional foods provide the nutritional boost – so, in effect, people could have their cake and eat it, too.
Hard hit were omega-3/fish oil and calcium bone supplements, suffering double digit declines in 2013. But the picture wasn’t entirely bleak: digestive health and probiotic sales have been healthy, posting an almost 25% increase in sales of such supplements in the multi-outlet channel in 2013. Looking ahead, sales of nutritional supplements will experience an increased growth rate between 2014 and 2018, with sales expanding due to an aging population, rising consumer involvement in personal health, and a growing expectation of personalization for virtually all services and products.
