Functional Dietary Supplement Markets Are Thriving, With One Exception

December 22, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
An analysis of functional dietary supplements found some interesting sales and product trends. Sales of bone and joint supplements to baby boomers and post-menopausal women are expected to hit $9 billion globally this year, even though the numbers on established products like glucosamine and chondroitin are falling. Filling the void are alternative ingredients, including MSM, 5-Loxin, collagen, and plant-derived glucosamine. Except in Western Europe and Asia, where “beauty-from-within” products are on the rise, anti-aging supplements represent mostly an opportunity in the U.S. Sports nutrition has gone mainstream, becoming a $7.4 billion market dominated (72 percent of sales) by protein powder, Probiotic functional foods will be worth $50 billion by 2021, and probiotic dietary supplements are growing even faster and should hit $5 billion by 2021.
