Multi-nutritional Supplements Market – Introduction
With the increasing growth of the health & wellness trend and consumers’ awareness about the necessity of adding diverse nutrients in diets, the demand for multi-nutritional supplements as well as dietary supplements has increased significantly in the past few years. Over-the-counter dietary supplements and multi-nutritional supplements are becoming a big business with a mounting number of consumers relying on these nutraceuticals for satisfying their daily dietary needs.
Consumers are becoming aware about the importance of antioxidants, vitamins, and other nutrients, and it is directly influencing the sales of multi-nutritional supplements. In addition, with the increasing global prevalence of lifestyle diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes, consumers are likely to depend on external nutritional supply to meet their dietary needs. Increasing dependency of consumers on multi-nutritional supplements for weight loss and obesity management will further bolster their demand in the coming years.
Consumers are preferring to consume multi-nutritional supplements instead of resorting to two or more than two dietary supplements to get the essential nutrients. This is expected to support the growth of the multi-nutritional supplements market in the coming years. Leading players in the multi-nutritional supplements are introducing products with health benefiting ingredients such as vitamin D ingredients, vitamin C ingredients, and natural antioxidants. By boosting research & development in the discovery of innovative and more health-benefitting ingredients, stakeholders are aiming to gain a competitive edge in the multi-nutritional supplements market.

Factors Influencing Growth of the Multi-nutritional Supplements Market
Ever-growing Demand for Nutrition Supplements among Elderly Consumers
The consumption of multi-nutritional supplements is expected to remain significantly high across the geriatric population. A 2017 survey including 3,500 American adults aged 60 and older was published in The Journal of Nutrition, and it found that almost three-fourth of the participants consumed a daily multi-nutritional supplement (either individual vitamin or mineral or a multivitamin supplement), more than half of the participants said that they take one or two supplements, and more than one-fourth of the participants take four or more supplements. Taking into consideration this trend, leading players in the multi-nutritional supplements market are expected to focus on introducing older adults health supplements in the coming years, to improve their sales.
Studies Creating Ambiguity about the Health Benefits of Multi-nutritional Supplements
While the number of consumers relying on dietary, probiotic supplements, as well as multi-nutritional supplements is increasing at a rapid pace, some recent studies suggest that these supplements may not be entirely effective in improving health. A survey included over 27,000 American adults aged 20 or older suggests that dietary supplements or multi-nutritional supplements fail to offer the same health benefits as natural fruits and vegetables ingredients do.
Another study performed on over 30,000 American adults finds that multi-nutritional supplement are not only ineffective in improving health of consumers but also carry the risk of posing harm to their health. Such studies are creating an ambiguity about the effectiveness of multi-nutritional supplements on consumer health and potentially hazards of consuming them. This may negatively impact the growth of the multi-nutritional supplements market.
Multi-nutritional Supplements witness High Demand in Sports Nutrition Industry
High consumption of food supplements and multi-nutritional supplements among consumers aged 60 or more is expected to make them the primary target consumer base for stakeholders in the multi-nutritional supplements market. However, leading market players are also entering the sports food market and fitness nutrition industry, by introducing product with innovative ingredients for muscle building, to explore the profitable sales opportunities for multi-nutritional supplements in this industrial scenario.
Health- and fitness-conscious consumers are showing proclivity towards relying on multi-nutritional supplements for improving strength, endurance, and athletic performance. In the sports nutrition industry, multi-nutritional supplements in the form of tablets, capsules, powders, bars, and liquids are gaining immense popularity. Thereby, leading players are expected to introduce multi-nutritional supplements for professional sportspersons and athletes to further boost their product sales in the coming years.
The Rise of Multi-nutritional Supplement Subscription Services Bring in New Trends
While the multi-nutritional supplements market is witnessing incremental growth worldwide, consumers’ need to maintain adherence to their nutritional program is triggering the rise of new market trends. A mounting number of leading players as well as new entrants in the multi-nutritional supplements market are introducing supplement subscription services integrated with advanced technologies to offer consumers more convenience at maintaining their daily nutritional intake.
