Multivitamins Supplements Market Outlook
The Global Multivitamins Supplements Market was estimated at USD 1,533.9 million in 2021 and is anticipated to reach USD 2,554.3 million by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period. Multivitamins are consumable dietary supplements containing a combination of vitamins, minerals, and other valuable ingredients. These supplements are packed under one capsule to bring about health needs satisfaction.
Vitamins are a group of complex organic compounds required in small quantities by the body to maintain good health. 13 vitamins and 16 minerals are important to human nutrition, and each of these serves multiple functions in the body. Vitamins are not normally synthesized in the body and thus are supplied through the diet. The addition of vitamin supplements to a routine gives the body an extra boost and increases human health.
Multivitamins provide stable health in an easy way. The need to lead healthy lives among people has given rise to the development of multivitamin supplements. Multivitamins are available in forms such as tablets, capsules, powders, liquids, and injectables. The consumption of multivitamin supplements has increased substantially in the past few decades. On average, 20% to 30% of people in developed and developing countries consume multivitamins.
Governments across the globe are investing in the healthcare industry to increase real per capita healthcare spending. Healthcare expenditure plays an important role in providing opportunities for maintaining health. It strengthens human capital and improves productivity, thereby contributing to economic performance.
According to National Health Expenditure (NHE), in the US, hospital expenditure increased up to USD 1,270.1 Billion in 2020, which is faster than the 6.3% growth in 2019. Physician and clinical services expenditure increased up to USD 809.5 billion in 2020, faster than the 4.2% growth in 2019. Healthcare systems are organized and financed in different ways across the EU member states.
In 2021, healthcare expenditure in Germany and France was equivalent to 12.8% and 12.2%, respectively, of gross domestic product (GDP), more than any other EU member state. Continuous R&D activities, investments, and spending for innovations in multivitamin supplements propel the global market.
Gross domestic product (GDP) is the standard measure of the value added through the production of goods and services in a country during a certain period. Improvements in the healthcare industry lead to an increase in GDP and the other way around. Healthcare holds a significant place in the quality of human capital. Increasing expenditure on healthcare surges the productivity of human capital; thus, making a positive contribution to economic growth.
Investments in various healthcare aspects are boosting income, GDP, and productivity across the globe. High-income countries spend on healthcare around USD 3,000 for each citizen, while low-income countries only spend up to USD 30 per capita. While some countries spend higher than 12% of their GDP on healthcare, others spend as little as ~3%. Thus, an increase in the spending on healthcare is boosting GDP.
Multivitamins Supplements Market Dynamics
Health-conscious consumers (HCCs) are individuals who are concerned about nutrition, fitness, stress, and their environment. According to the International Food Information Council, the age group between 25 and 34 is the most health-conscious people. High emphasis on immunity and nutrition is indicative of a consumer shift toward holistic health.
Consumer prioritization of overall health and wellness has propelled the demand for multivitamins supplements. Consumer awareness about the importance of well-being and prevention is growing, due to consulting online medicine portals and websites in the health sector.
In general, consumers are increasing their focus on health, with a proactive approach to the treatment and prevention of potential diseases. High global health consciousness is correlated to the investment in multivitamins supplements. Thus, high consumer health consciousness is expected to fuel the market during the forecast period.
Multivitamins are the most commonly used supplements in the world. Their popularity has increased rapidly in the past few decades. In a modern scenario, with the rising awareness toward enhancing the nutrition profiles of consumers, multivitamins have become instantly popular. These products are vital for good health and daily bodily functions.
The demand for multivitamins is increasing continuously as they improve health, compensate for poor eating habits, and reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases. Across the globe, the demand for multivitamins in female populations is projected to rise by ~30%. They are crucial for female health, mainly in areas of menstruation, ovulation, oocyte quality, and maturation.
The demand for vitamin supplements grew effectively during the coronavirus pandemic and is expected to increase further. Changing food habits and the large presence of the Men & Women group population in developing countries are projected to increase the demand for these supplements in the coming years.
Presence of Counterfeit Dietary Supplements
Counterfeit dietary supplements are finished products that look identical to the original supplement and are harmful to the body. Counterfeiting is the branding and sale of unauthorized products. They usually contain substances such as harmful chemicals, and poor quality or fake ingredients, and they look similar to the authentic ones in color, size, and texture. Counterfeit, poor quality, or adulterated dietary supplements are unsafe for consumption.
The increase in the consumption of dietary supplements has led to an increase in counterfeit supplements in the market. Counterfeit dietary supplements are manufactured using low-cost non-standard materials and are not tested or approved by regulatory authorities; therefore, they are unfit for human consumption. The number of counterfeit supplements consumed increased during the pandemic. Thus, counterfeiting of dietary supplements is expected to restrain the market during the forecast period.
Increasing Nutrition Needs in Sports Activities
The growing popularity of fitness, bodybuilding, and specialized sports between the age group of 20 years and 40 years is increasing the demand for multivitamin supplements. Nutrition and vitamins play an important part in the growth and development of young athletes. The benefits of multivitamins in sports activities are:
Boosting metabolic rate: The addition of multivitamins into the diet or post-workout boosts the metabolic rate, as multivitamins have a high thermic effect on food (TEF). Promoting muscle strength and growth: multivitamins akin to creatine, calcium, and vitamin D help build and strengthen muscles.
Accelerating healing: multivitamins help build strong muscles and promote recovery. Thus, the increasing need for nutritional supplements is expected to create opportunities in the market, as it is useful for increasing performance.
