The authors of the report note that the natural-ingredient-based foods trend will have a far-reaching impact on the global dietary supplements market as well. Several consumers now consider dietary supplements as a way to effectively nourish their bodies and meet the recommended dietary allowances, especially in the backdrop of increasingly hectic lifestyles. The demand for dietary supplements that provide vitamins, botanicals, minerals, and fatty acids is the highest.

Companies in the dietary supplements market, too, have been responsive to these demand patterns by offering products in a myriad of forms, which range from capsules and powders to liquids and gelcaps.

The North America dietary supplements market, although large in size, is mature. This has prompted several companies to look toward emerging nations in Africa and Asia. Given that the preferences and tastes of consumers in these country vary from region to region, it is important for companies foraying into emerging markets to take these details into consideration.
