Herbal Supplements and Remedies: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) February 25, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – The global herbal supplements market is forecast to witness growth, supported by the rising wave of healthcare awareness among consumers. Increasing global exposure to health and beauty trends is resulting in the strong demand for natural and herbal products. With scientific studies validating the power of herbal and botanical extracts in positively influencing neurocognitive and hormone function, organic herbal medicines are growing in popularity as a safe, low-cost treatment alternative for hormone replacement therapy and neurological therapy for mental, emotional, and behavioral disturbances. Herbalism is therefore a growing healthcare trend and poised to benefit are herbal supplements that help enhance immunity, cognitive functioning, boost energy levels and fitness, and reduce stress.
The rising incidence of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, high cholesterol, cancer and other debilitating chronic illnesses, and the high cost of healthcare are encouraging consumer adoption of preventive healthcare therapeutics, such as herbal supplements and remedies. Aging population, falling household incomes and reduced insurance coverage are exerting pressure on the need to curtail medical expenses, thus benefiting sales of affordable herbal supplements. Backed by scientific evidence, therapeutics derived from herbs, such as ginseng, aloe vera, St.John’s wort, and gingko are witnessing strong growth. Manufacturers are focusing on the development of herbal supplements for women, given that women have unique needs related to reproductive health. Changing attitudes, lifestyles and interests of women are generating significant interest in natural herbal remedies, supplements and liquid extracts. Alternative measures for weight control, effective handling of pre and post menstrual conditions, menopause symptoms and preventive measures against osteoporosis, anemia, and cancer, are spurring opportunities for herbal supplements. The growing number of self-medicating consumers also bodes well for market growth. Strong penetration and ubiquity of the Internet, online retail stores, video streaming websites, and social media platforms are emerging as dynamic channels for advertising, marketing, and distributing herbal products.
