Westford USA, Jan. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rising public awareness about the importance of general health and wellbeing, the rise in an aging population, and the increasing use of smart health monitoring devices drive incredible growth in the human nutrition market. In addition, factors such as rising disease prevalence due to unhealthy eating, growing demand for fortified food products, and increasing disposable income contribute to substantial market growth. Furthermore, a rise in the number of product launches to bring different product variants to attract a new consumer base is also a vital factor for the market’s rapid expansion.

Human nutrition refers to the substances found in foods, such as dietary and nutritional supplements. They are converted into body tissues and provide energy via fatty acids, amino acids, and other functional nutrients to support all sorts of physical and mental activities in human life. Consumers are becoming more interested in human nutritional products due to their potential nutritional and therapeutic effects.

Based on SkyQuest’s global research, around 52% of children under five die from hunger, and an estimated 225 million (37%) are chronically malnourished children in developing countries. As a result of this, various governments have started giving extra emphasis on ensuring sufficient nutrient levels among people through different initiatives.   

OTC Segment to Attract Larger Target Audience owing to Diverse and Budgetary Products Offerings

According to SkyQuest’s segment analysis, the OTC segment accounted for 26.5% market share in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a 6.7% CAGR from 2022 to 2028 to take this lead. The substantial growth of the segment can be attributed to the fact that consumers are well aware of the benefits of taking various dietary supplements in addition to their regular diet, which aids in OTC sales. Furthermore, the prevalence of such sales channels in developing countries, combined with the availability of a diverse range of products and discounts, is expected to impact segment growth positively.

With a market share of 38.27% in 2022, North America is the major region dominating the human nutrition market under the OTC segment. Such growth can be attributed to the United States being the market’s epicenter due to the presence of a well-developed distribution channel and the production hub of key manufacturers. Furthermore, the rising demand for such dietary supplements among the younger population is one of the factors driving market growth in North America.
