The global prenatal vitamin supplement market size is expected to reach USD 673.8 million by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 8.6% over the forecast period. Prenatal vitamin supplements comprises vitamins, calcium, iron, folic acid, and other minerals as compared to regular adult multivitamins. Rising awareness among pregnant women is one of the major factors driving the market. Improper nutrition to the baby, rise in other birth defects, and increasing awareness regarding the advantages of the prenatal supplements are some of the other factors driving the market.
The stressful and sedentary lifestyle of pregnant women has led to the increase in deficiency of minerals and vitamins among them. A healthy diet and consumption of right amount of nutritional components are of utmost importance right from the time of conception, in order to ensure the delivery of a healthy baby. At present, almost all obstetricians in U.S. recommend these supplements to pregnant women. A study by the UC Davis MIND Institute has claimed that the women who were observed not taking daily prenatal immediately before and during the first month of pregnancy were likely to have a child with an autism spectrum disorder, which is twice the rate as that of women who consumed the supplements.
The capsules segment held the largest market share in 2018. This is attributed to doctors’ preference for prescribing capsules due to their long shelf life, thereby fueling the demand for capsules. Moreover, advancements in technologies ease out procedures of filling capsules, thus making it a preference among the manufacturers as well. Increasing launch of prenatal vitamin capsules is another factor for the growth of the capsule segment. Increasing disposable income in the developing countries of Asia Pacific is resulting in consumer’s preference for bulk purchases at the supermarkets.
North America held the largest share of 53.1% in 2018. High level of sedentary lifestyle among the women of western countries is leading to the growth of market. Europe is anticipated to witness significant growth in the coming years. Countries such as India and China have remained adamant in developing a healthy mechanism for maternal care.
