The U.S. nutritional supplements market size was valued at USD 95.16 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2024 to 2030. This can be attributed to the rising occurrence of disorders such as alopecia, skin conditions, and obesity, which is a significant factor promoting the adoption of nutritional supplements in the U.S. Furthermore, an increasing rate of multi-nutrient deficiency among different age groups in the population is further boosting the demand for these supplements in the country.

U.S. Nutritional Supplements market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

U.S. accounted for 23% of the global nutritional supplements market in 2023. Usage of supplements and growing consumption patterns among Americans has steadily increased in the past 20 years. Nearly two out of every three U.S. adults are obese or overweight. Moreover, the rising burden of lifestyle-associated conditions along with aging population, and robust product availability through various platforms are positively impacting the market’s growth rate. Furthermore, increasing efforts by leading players to develop novel nutritional supplements and meet growing product demand are projected to offer significant growth opportunities for the market.

Competition in the country has increased owing to the emerging alternative treatments and increasing penetration of privately labeled supplement brands. The U.S. population is becoming more health-conscious and is embracing an active lifestyle. Growing preference for active healthy living is among the key factors driving the market. Rising popularity of physical exercises, yoga and meditation, has widely contributed to this lifestyle method. Consumers now prefer taking preventive measures against illness or disease over curative measures. Rising consumer demand for products based on plant ingredients and benefitting immunity enhancements are also contributing to market growth.

Disposable income in the country has increased over the years leading to higher purchasing power among the consumers allowing them to choose premium & higher-priced supplements that offer additional benefits or specialized formulations. Hence, supplement companies have allocated more resources to marketing and advertising campaigns and attained success in reaching a wider audience through various channels, such as digital media, television, and influencers. In addition, accessibility to dietary & nutritional supplements is also increasing due to the emergence of e-commerce.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The industry is fragmented in nature with several international and local players operating in it. Initially, female consumers were prioritized, however, in recent years health supplements for men gained high popularity, to help them maintain and meet their fitness goals and energy. Moreover, rising competition in the market owing to high consumer demand and the rising emphasis of market players to manufacture quality supplements is a significant factor propelling market demand forward.

U.S. Nutritional Supplements Market Concentration & Characteristics

Additionally, several major participants in the market are launching their businesses on e-commerce platforms and sites to have access to a large consumer base and acquire a larger share.

Strategic partnerships and mergers & acquisitions among manufacturers and distributors are also positively impacting the market.

Health supplements and nutraceuticals are recognized as dietary supplements by the FDA and are regulated by U.S. FDA and Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Manufacturers need to comply with regulatory standards and labeling must be per the stated regulation in Code of Federal Regulations Title 21. In addition, government initiatives for improving health conditions in this region are also creating opportunities for market growth.
