The COVID-19 pandemic has had a positive impact on the market and fueled the demand for these products among consumers mainly because of the deteriorating mental and emotional state of people. Thus, consumers are increasingly spending on memory supplement products due to the uncertainty associated with the continued COVID-19 cases across the globe. During the pandemic, the supply chain has witnessed a disruption in raw material procurement as well as in the supply of finished products. Many countries have imposed a ban on the import and export of raw materials, which has hampered the production of supplements to some level.

The adoption of the product among consumers in the U.S., especially millennials and the aging population, has gradually increased in recent years and is likely to continue over the forecast period as well. Supplements targeting brain health have quickly emerged in the U.S. owing to growing health-consciousness among the population. People are looking to improve the performance of the brain, enhance their focus, and relieve stress.

In the U.S., there has been a growing prevalence of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) among adults, which is driving the demand for these supplements. As per a report published by the National Institute of Mental Health in 2019, 9.6% of females and 6.0% of males suffered from MDD. According to data published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine in April 2020, nearly 75% of the U.S. adult population consumes dietary supplements that contain vitamins, minerals, and herbal ingredients to improve brain health, energy, and performance. These trends are likely to boost the market growth in the country.

Manufacturers have been focusing on the production of various supplements that are targeted specifically at athletes who emphasize on performance enhancement and maintaining mental composure. This is expected to boost the demand for brain health supplements over the next few years. For instance, in January 2019, EXOS, a human performance company, named Onnit Labs, Inc. as its official performance nutrition partner. This partnership was aimed to bring both companies together to focus on helping the athletes better by providing appropriate nutrition products.

The market for brain health supplements is characterized by an increasing number of product launches in response to the growing demand for high-quality supplements to support and maintain brain health, enhance memory, and improve brain function. For instance, in March 2022, Cosmos Holdings, an international pharmaceutical firm, announced the launch of its luxury nutritional supplement product line - ‘Brainlit’ for brain health. The company’s R&D team developed an advanced formula that is designed to support and enhance brain function as certain brain-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, depression, and anxiety have been on the rise in recent years.

Product Insights

Natural molecule segment held the largest market share in the global revenue for 2021 and is expected to maintain dominance over the forecast period. The rising use of brain supplements with natural ingredients compared to synthetic supplements which are artificially made is projected to boost the growth of this segment. In addition, companies are focusing on including natural content in their product. For instance, in April 2019, Reckitt Benckiser Group plc launched Neuriva which enhances cognitive health and is made with two natural and GMO-free ingredients, plant-sourced Sharp Phosphatidylserine (PS) and Neurofactor.

Vitamins & minerals segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% over the forecast period.

In addition, research shows that intake of vital vitamins and minerals including thiamine (B1), folic acid (b9), ascorbic acid (vitamin c), calcium, magnesium, and zinc improve various aspects of cognitive functioning such as focus, learning, concentration, and memory-boosting, which is driving the segment’s growth.

Application Insights

Memory enhancement segment held the largest market share in the global revenue for 2021 and is expected to maintain dominance over the forecast period. The millennial population globally is getting involved in various activities, including adventure sports, social gatherings, and part-time jobs besides their normal profession, which requires them to be mentally alert throughout the day. Therefore, changing lifestyles of the population is expected to boost the demand for these products. According to a report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, there is an increase in the trend of part-time jobs in countries such as Germany, Italy, France, and Austria. The change in consumer lifestyle is expected to boost the demand for memory enhancement supplements over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing segment from 2022 to 2030. The rapid growth of education sector along with increasing awareness about brain health in the developing economies of China and Japan is expected to fuel the regional demand for the product in the near future.

This trend is expected to create growth opportunities for naturally derived products over the forecast period.
