            Nutritional Supplements in the U.S., 5th Edition


Throughout the recession and its “New Normal” aftermath of frugal spending, the nutritional
supplements market held steady as Americans apparently embraced supplements as less costly
alternatives to pure-play medical options like doctor visits and prescription medications. Now, with
U.S. consumers beginning to loosen their budgetary belt straps, nutritional supplement marketers
must work to keep their products at the forefront of consumers’ health regimens. Key to this pursuit
are targeted products featuring trendy ingredients more heavily backed by science and increasingly
taking a page from their functional food competitors. At the same time, supplement marketers must
keep their sights squarely focused on their prime demographics: those over age 65 and the up-and-
coming aging Baby Boomers currently swelling the senior brackets. Nor can the industry afford to
ignore the younger demographics who are its longer-term future but whose supplement usage rates
have been declining, or the emergent Hispanic population, whose supplement usage rates are below
average but gradually rising.

Marketwide, product efficacy and credibility remain crucial, with supplement developers increasingly
relying on scientific evidence supporting the benefits of taking nutritional supplements to bolster the
industry’s image in the eyes of consumers and healthcare practitioners. With market regulation and
scrutiny at an all-time high, it’s more important than ever for the industry to produce and feature
products able to substantiate their health benefit claims. In this vein, condition-specific supplements
continue to grow in breadth and importance, and they will remain a key driver of sales and new
product development across myriad segments including joint, brain, cosmetic, and heart, with many of
these products homing in on age-related health issues. At the other end of the condition-specific
spectrum, children’s supplements have been doing well, demographically book-ending the overall
market in way that suggests solid future prospects. During 2012, supplement sales rose 7% to $11.5
billion, the report calculates, and sales are forecasted to reach $15.5 billion by 2017.

Nutritional Supplements in the U.S., 5th Edition, a fully updated Packaged Facts report, examines the
market for nutritional supplements within the context of broader HBC trends in new product
development and marketing, including vitamins, minerals, herbals, homeopathics and combination
products. It charts industry sales and composition, providing retail sales breakouts for four main
product categories (general supplements, multivitamins, 1 & 2 letter vitamins and liquid supplements)
and for over a dozen condition-specific segments (children’s, joint health, calcium/bone health, eye
health, women’s, vitamin C/immunity, digestive health/probiotic, men’s, brain health, heart health,
omega, cosmetic, energy, and CoQ-10. The report also provides a thorough examination of market
drivers, the competitive situation, mass-market marketer and brand shares, marketing trends, and
consumer trends.
