INDUSTRY ANALYSIS: Key Trends in Dietary supplements & Chyawanprash industry The product is essentially a dietary supplement.

The dietary supplements market is pegged at Rs 37,750 million and is expected to witness a healthy growth rate with a CAGR of 15.9 % for the period 2009-2016i. The market is in its growth stage. The Indian dietary supplements market is typically classified into four supplement categories:  Chyawanprash  Herbal  Vitamin and mineral  Dietetic supplements

Functional foods are easier to consume are fortified with the same nutrients that are present in dietary supplements. Functional foods as a class have come to challenge dietary supplements in a major way. It is essential to differentiate dietary supplements from them. The market size of chyawanprash is approximately Rs 500 croresii and it is growing at a comparatively lower growth rate of 11 %. Given the stress and health issues that people in urban India face due to lifestyle related problems, there’s a growing awareness today about health and wellness, and increasingly, people are seeking healthier products. People are preferring ayurvedic and organic products to those manufactured using chemicals as they are becoming health conscious. So, there is a huge market that has been left untapped by the Chyawanprash industry. In 50s Dabur pioneered the concept of branded Chyawanprash and since has invested heavily in product development, clinical studies and consumer awareness and now controls 66% of market shareiii. There are many Chyawanprash brands in the Indian market now such as Emami Group, Himalaya, Bajaj, and Baidyanath. Research suggested that a large number of youth, particularly kids, find the taste an entry barrier. To bridge the gap between health and taste and bring more consumers they are introducing new variants.

Regulations: Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006, lacked clarity in the dietary supplements regulatory scenario. The Food Safety and Standard Rules, 2011 helped bridge this gap. Hence, when any new entrant wants to enter Indian dietary supplement market, it is very important to comply with regulatory framework so that business is run smoothly. The focus areas should be product evaluation for each active ingredient in the context of permissibility, standards and dosage of vitamins / minerals
