The Online Vitamin and Supplement Sales industry has grown strongly over the past five years, benefiting from increased demand from a growing health-conscious consumer base and an aging population. In addition, growing interest in sports nutrition products from mainstream consumers and recreational athletes, which now represent the industry's largest market, has helped propel industry performance. Over the next five years, the industry is forecast to continue growing strongly as the health-conscious trend persists. Despite an increasingly stringent regulatory environment and decelerating demand for mainstream supplements, sustained demand for sport nutrition products and herbal supplements will support healthy industry revenue growth.
