U.S. Mineral Supplements market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation statistics, in Canada, about 2 million people were suffering from osteoporosis in 2017. Furthermore, the growing trend of adopting preventive health management practices due to the increasing prevalence of lifestyle diseases fuels the market growth. For instance, as per the data released by the WHO, diabetes caused 1.5 million deaths in 2019, out of which 48% of deaths occurred before the age of 70. The rising number of fitness clubs, along with growing awareness about healthy lifestyles, further propels the market growth.

Growing adoption of a sedentary lifestyle, along with the increased intake of an unhealthy diet, has led to a rise in the number of people dealing with nutritional deficiencies. Different proportions of minerals are required for the proper functioning of the body. These mineral deficiencies can lead to different types of health issues such as fatigue, weak bones, and decreased immune system. As per the data of NutraIngredients-USA, iron deficiency is the most common among the population of the U.S. Furthermore, growing government initiatives to promote a healthy lifestyle further fuel the market growth.

In addition to the growing awareness regarding the benefits of mineral supplements, key market players are focusing on innovative product development and research of exotic ingredients. The growing trend of plant-based products further brings growth opportunities for the market. Moreover, in order to manage metabolic disorders, consumers are opting for personalized preventive products and services rather than opting for curative health management practices, thus positively impacting the market growth.

Unlike other industries, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic led to a rise in the demand for mineral supplements. According to a report published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the infection had a negative impact on people who had a mineral deficiency. Recent research suggests that giving higher doses of mineral supplements than suggested could assist COVID-19 patients to reduce viral load and hospitalization. Thus, it led to a surge in the launch of new products to cater to the growing demand among consumers. However, the sale of counterfeit products is expected to hamper the market growth. Economic crisis and political conflicts disrupt the supply chain, which leads to a rise in the production of locally made, cheap products. Growing demand and easy accessibility of mineral supplements have further led to a rise in the availability of counterfeit products.

Formulation Insights

In 2022, tablet dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of over 36.0%. Availability of majority of products in the form of tablets is the major reason for the segment dominance. Furthermore, high acceptance rate of mineral tablets is also expected to be the major reason for segment growth over the forecast period.

On the other hand, liquid/gel segment is expected to emerge as the most lucrative segment. Increasing number of product launches of mineral liquids along with ease of administration of liquid forms in children is expected to drive the segment growth in coming years.

Application Insights
