Increasing health awareness and changing consumer groups are the major growth drivers for the global Sports Nutrition market. Traditionally, bodybuilders and athletes were the only consumers for sports nutrition products. In recent years, new user groups (recreational and lifestyle users) have increased their market share. Furthermore, changing consumer preferences and expansion of distribution channels are other growth inhibitors for the industry.
Developed regions such as the U.S. and countries in Europe have been the dominant market shareholders. However, as consumers in developing nations are increasingly spending their income on health and health related products, these economies are expected to pose a serious challenge to the supremacy of developed economies. Organizing high profile sports events in these countries is further expected to escalate the demand for sports nutritional products in these markets.
