Global Nutrition Market:
The nutrition market is on a high peak due to the growing number of people suffering from malnutrition, rising old aged population and rising birth rates. Millions of people are suffering from Under-nutrition globally and its incidence is found to be high in under developed countries. Also, the geriatric population is on the rise and this part of the population suffers from many chronic diseases demanding nutritional support. These 2 groups of people are the largest consumers of nutritional products and a rise in their number will directly cause an up rise in the sales of the nutrition market. According to the research based statistics the clinical nutrition market in 2017 was valued at $44.2 billion. Basing on the current scenario of the health status globally, the nutrition market is estimated to reach $59.1 billion by the year 2025 with a CAGR expansion of 4.6% from 2017 to 2025. In addition, the growing number of birth rates also demands number of pediatric nutrition products. Some of the drawbacks for the nutrition market are the regulations for the release of some products into the market, high buying price on some novel products and lack of awareness among the public.
Globally nutrition market has been divided based on the products or supplements used and the topography. The market has been divided into the continents of North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and the rest of the world. North America may lead the therapeutic Nutrition market due to the rise in the number of people suffering from Obesity and other chronic diseases. The use of supplements is not just restricted to treatment of diseases now due to advancement in the Health care sector and awareness for leading a healthy lifestyle has prompted the public towards to use of health supplements for boosting their health and immunity. Hence a good market has been created for the nutritional supplements industry. Knowledge about online marketing has also let towards the market development. Changed lifestyle among the public, like late working hours in office, pollution, habitual fast food consumption is also increasing the demand for products in the nutrition market.
Fig: Growth of Nutritional Supplements Market from the year 2014-2020
Many individuals in the USA are suffering from Obesity and also the rate of people suffering other chronic diseases like diabetes and heart diseases has also spiked due to which the demand for Nutritionists and Dietitians has also seen a rise. The Nutrition and Dietetics department will see an increased importance in the present and future. A large number of industries are also investing in nutritional supplements and food that guarantee a person his/her health. Functional food makes up more than thirty percent of the nutritional supplements market. Also adding to the count is the much trending Organic food.
One of the drawbacks in the nutrition market includes the stringent regulations for releasing the product into the market. Hence novel products are made according to the particular regulations of that country or region. So, it is mandatory to revise the nutritional market according to the regulatory affairs in the releasing country or region. With the high amount of incoming cash and nuclear families, parents in Singapore are spending more than enough on the nutritional products and food to ensure the best health for their children.
New Zealand Nutrition, Health and Market analysis:
There are around 3500 fast food centers in the whole of New Zealand, that one fast food center for 1300 people. In a recent survey conducted, New Zealand stands in the 3rd position among other countries with 65.6% of its population aged above 15 either being obese or overweight. It has been estimated that obesity costs New Zealand around 1 billion dollars a year. KFC and McDonald’s are considered as the kings of fast food outlets in the country of New Zealand and its market value keeps increasing as the number of people consuming their food products are also increasing.
As the consumption of fast food is a habit among most of the New Zealand consumers, they are now focusing on avoiding any health deteriorating symptoms by the consumption of nutritional and dietary supplements, hence the health supplements market value keeps increasing at a steady pace. According to statistics the dietary supplements market is expected to reach 188 million USD with a growth estimate of around 6%. New Zealand also has less regulations for the release of Nutritional supplements and major institutional healthcare brands have been hosted by New Zealand’s health store channel.
