Global Vitamin Supplements Market Industry Size, Share, Growth,

Trends, Statistics And Forecast 2020

Earlier research studies suggested that to improve health and well-being, people should
consume vitamin supplements daily. At present, many research studies are saying that
vitamins supplements do not have any effect on the health. In fact, there are certain studies
that suggest that vitamin supplements might harm a persons health in the long run.




Negative Publicity to Hamper Global Vitamin Supplements Market

According to a recent research report, the global vitamin supplements market was worth
US$37.4 billion in 2013 and will expand at a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period of 2014
to 2020. This report from Persistence Market Research (PMR), featured on Market Research
Reports Search Engine (MRRSE), further states that the global vitamin supplements market
will reach a market value of US$59.6 billion by 2020.
The negative publicity of the global vitamin supplements market is the primary restraining
force for this markets growth.
A study published in the The New England Journal of Medicine in 1994 showed some
shocking evidence. A group of total 29,133 male smokers was divided into four groups those
given beta carotene alone, alpha-tocopherol alone, both beta carotene and alpha-tocopherol,
and placebo supplements.
The study, after a follow-up of 5-8 years, concluded that the group receiving beta carotene
supplements alone was more likely to die from heart disease or lung cancer as compared to
other groups.

The 2010 U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee says that a daily mineral or
multivitamin supplement does not offer any health benefits to Americans.
An editorial co-authored by five doctors, which included three professors from John Hopkins,
stated that the majority of supplements do not prevent chronic disease. Furthermore, the
article stated that the use of these supplements is not justified and people should avoid the
consumption of these supplements.
Besides negative publicity, the global vitamin supplements market will also be hampered due
to the changing regulatory scenario.
Accelerating Geriatric Population to Drive Global Vitamin Supplements Market
Nevertheless, the global vitamin supplements market will continue to grow due to the
increasing healthcare cost.
The trend of preventive healthcare is another driver of this market. Several studies suggest
that eating vitamins and mineral supplements can help improve health and increase life
expectancy. Furthermore, the demand for vitamin supplements is high from the geriatric
population. The growing aging population around the world will drive this markets growth.
