What Key Factors are Influencing the Vitamin B12 Supplement Industry’s Expansion?

Growing public awareness of the importance of leading healthy lifestyles has expanded the vitamin B12 supplement industry. The increase in vitamin deficiencies in developing nations and the rise in veganism are other factors influencing the need for vitamin B12 supplements.

According to a study, 11% of people worldwide consume vegetarian food, while 3% of people follow vegan diets. Because plants and plant-based goods cannot naturally manufacture vitamin B12, those who do not consume animal-based products are at a higher risk of vitamin B12 deficiency.

In developing and low-income countries, malnutrition can cause noncommunicable diseases such as anemia, fatigue, headache, and obesity. According to the World Health Organisation estimates, approximately 1.9 billion adults are overweight and 465 million people are underweight. The market is likely to grow throughout the assessment period due to the deficiency of vitamin B12 in these nations due to malnutrition in these regions.

The fact that physicians frequently suggest vitamin B12 to patients with cancer, HIV infection, pregnancy, and digestive disorders, to enhance their immune systems and to fulfill the daily need for vitamin B12 in the body, is another factor that will result in the market expansion during the course of the assessment period. The increase in susceptibility among the senior population following COVID-19 is also projected to expand the market in the future.
