Nutritional Supplements in the U.S., 6th Edition



 

LONDON, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:

Nutritional Supplements in the U.S., 6th Edition

https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/96420/Nutritional-Supplements-in-the-US-6th-Edition.html

The U.S. nutritional supplements market is going to maintain its average growth rate of just over 6% per year through 2018, hitting sales of $16.4 billion in that year. Growth in the market slowed in 2013 and the first part of 2014 due to negative press coverage of supplement safety and effectiveness, and the increase in consumer use of functional foods and beverages. Omega-3/fish oil and calcium/bone supplements have been hardest hit, with sales declining by double digits in 2013. On the other hand, digestive health and probiotic sales have been healthy indeed, posting an almost 25% increase in sales of such supplements in the multi-outlet (MULO) channel in 2013. Looking ahead, sales of nutritional supplements will experience an increased growth rate between 2014 and 2018, with sales expanding due to an aging population, rising consumer involvement in personal health, and a growing expectation of personalization for virtually all services and products.

Nutritional Supplements in the U.S., 6th Edition contains comprehensive data on the U.S. market for dietary supplements, including historical (2009–2013) and forecasted (2014–2018) retail sales data. The report discusses key trends affecting the marketplace, trends driving growth, and consumer demographics. In addition, the report discusses the key supplement marketers and retailers providing nutritional supplements in the U.S., providing profiles of innovative and fast growing marketers as well as ranking marketers in terms of sales for a number of different nutritional supplement segments and categories.


Report Methodology

The information in Nutritional Supplements in the U.S., 6th Edition is based on primary and secondary research.

Consumer findings are derived from Packaged Facts' proprietary survey conducted in August 2012 and Experian's Simmons National Consumer Study (NCS) surveys, which provide current data on consumers' purchasing habits, preferences and perspectives.
