The term health supplements are
evolving and the nomenclature for health supplements varies across countries.
For e.g., Canada naming them natural and non-prescription health products, the
USA calling them dietary supplements, and Japan naming them “foods with health
claims”. This has resulted in different countries including different categories
for defining health supplements. There are an extensive amount of health and
beauty supplements on the market, and they become more innovative every year.
Health supplement trends will evolve in 2021 as individuals and the integrative
health industry continue to respond to the global pandemic.
Increasing chronic diseases due to
the fast-phased lifestyle of consumer’s results in raising awareness in a
healthy diet are the prime factor driving the growth of the global health
supplements market. Furthermore, the rising use of nutraceutical ingredients in
pharmaceutical drugs due to its properties such as anti-aging, proper body
functioning, and health improvement will drive the health supplements market
globally. Moreover, the increasing use of health supplements in food and
beverage applications and dietary supplements is anticipated to further drive

supplements also help with the treatment of rheumatic disorders, cardiology,
and allergy. Thus, a wide range of applications boosts the growth of the global
health supplements market. However, strict government regulations and
guidelines, and extensive flow of unapproved supplement products are the key
factors restraining the growth of this market. Moreover, an increase in R&D
funding, growth in the e-commerce sector, and weight management are likely to
bring more opportunities to this market. The recent COVID-19 outbreak and the
containment measures introduced by governments across the world have affected
the pharmaceutical sector to a large extent. Consumer demand for health
supplements is increasing as customers look to support their immune health,
boost overall wellness and reduce anxiety in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since the beginning of March 2020, weekly health supplement sales experienced
growth of approximately 20%-140%, coupled with amplified social media interest.
