key takeaways.

Monika Szelążek highlighted the promising outlook for the dietary supplements segment: “Euromonitor predicts that vitamins and dietary supplements will overperform the OTC drugs sector by 2026. We have also noted that consumers are shifting their interest from immunity-related products to other health concerns. In the long-term, health concerns will change and memory issues will become one of the most important problems.”

Matevž Ambrožič focused on ingredients and strategies to stand out: “Despite the slight decline in immunity supplement sales, the percent of launches with an immune system claim continues to grow, making the space more crowded with fewer rewards. An increasing percentage of brands is opting to stand out via gummies and chews, as well as liquid formats. Targeting specific demographic groups with your product positioning is one of the more promising strategies for success, as launches targeted at either women or children are not growing as fast as sales of these segments are. Interestingly, Kenn Israel from Innovation Nutrition Consulting is highlighting the emergence of fermented fruit ingredients as the trend to watch out for in the future.”

While supplement sales are growing nicely, so is the number of new launches, making strategies for differentiation more important than ever.
