Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend spurring growth is the increasing demand for dietary supplements among women. The use of dietary supplements, particularly herbal supplements, is increasing among adults. Use of dietary supplements is higher among women than men and increases with age and education. In the US, for instance, 71% of women, in comparison with 61% of men, take dietary supplements. High use among women is attributed to high requirement of calcium and iron in women.”
According to the report, one driver facilitating growth is the growing awareness about benefits of dietary supplements. Functional foods are fortified with ingredients required to improve health. Increasing work pressure and busy schedule has led to unhealthy eating habits such as fast food and meals-on-the-go, which does not always fulfill the nutritional requirement. To fill the gap in nutritional requirements consumers are opting for functional foods such as supplements in the form of powder, syrup, or tablets in their daily diet to minimize the chances of developing health complications and remain healthy and fit.
Further, the report states that one challenge that will impede market growth is the inadequate knowledge about health benefits of herbal supplements. Despite the increase in the consumption of herbal supplements in various forms, there are sections of the global population that are ignorant about the benefits of adequate intake of these supplements and theirs benefits in everyday life. The diets of women population in developing countries and under-developed countries are inadequate in terms of nutrition. During pregnancy, many women are unaware of the any type of deficiency and recognize the condition only when it has progressed to a more serious health disorder.
