OTC Vitamins and Dietary Supplements Market Gaining Impetus from Changing Nutrition Requirements and Self-Medication Practices: Fact.MR

OTC vitamins and dietary supplements manufacturers are pushing for new flavor and nutrient formulations to bolster appeal among a wider demographic for product offerings.

Fact.MR, New York: Market research firm Fact.MR’s ongoing report on the OTC vitamins and dietary supplements market has projected impressive growth prospects for 2021. Increased levels of health awareness among consumers continuing post the covid-19 pandemic will support the consumption of vitamin supplements. Further, the large number of geriatrics affected by the virus and the changes to nutritional requirements has resulted in improved diets, which also created opportunities for OTC vitamins and dietary supplement manufacturers in the near future.

According to the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA), over 2.9 billion retail visits occur annually, which can be attributed to OTC product sales, with average U.S. households spending more than US$ 300 for the same. Also, more than 80% of adults make use of OTC medications as the primary response to minor medical conditions. These are key factors that are supporting a conductive environment for the sales and consumption of OTC vitamin and dietary supplements.

The CHPA has also stated that the United States alone is home to over 54,000 pharmacies. However, more than 750,000 retail outlets sell vitamins and other dietary supplements. This easy access to consumers will play a major role in sales and revenues. Further, these products are comparatively affordable in comparison to prescription alternatives, while also accounting for better overall economic productivity, which drives government incentives that will support market growth in the long-term.

“Rising levels of consumer awareness in terms of personal health fuels demand for OTC vitamins and dietary supplements. Hectic lifestyles of working populations often result in inadequate nutrient intakes. This in turn is boosting consumer dependency on supplements to meet dietary recommendations owing to convenience, which, will drive sales through the projection period,” comments a Fact.MR analyst.
