The global brain health supplements market was valued at USD 8.63 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.3% from 2023 to 2030.

Moreover, the increasing adoption of natural and herbal health products is anticipated to fuel the industry's growth over the forecast period. Rising demand for multi-efficacy drugs that work as energy boosters, antidepressants, brain enhancers, and resist anxiety is expected to drive greater R&D activities in this industry. Moreover, increasing demand by the sports industry to improve the brain efficacy of players is also expected to generate growth opportunities for the global market.
