Clinical Nutrition Market Is Expected To Grow At 4.13% CAGR

The North American region led the clinical nutrition market in 2021.

As per our report, the global clinical nutrition market size was valued at USD 14.58 billion in 2022 to USD 17.85 Billion by 2027, with a CAGR of 4.13% during the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic is likely to impact the clinical nutrition products market significantly, as the need for nutritional management continues to rise, particularly among youngsters and the elderly. Consumers seek various immunity-boosting alternatives to avoid being infected by the novel coronavirus, and demand for therapeutic nutrition products is rising because of the ongoing COVID-19 problem. In addition, older adults and patients are at risk of malnutrition due to the pandemic's beginning. The illness also causes a loss of appetite and other symptoms such as anosmia dysgeusia or diarrhea, which increase the risk of malnutrition. In addition, COVID-19 infection produced acute starvation, resulting in a loss of muscle mass and weakened immune systems.

The COVID-19 pandemic has become an unexpected public health threat with significant implications for the clinical nutrition industry. Millions of people have been affected by the coronavirus outbreak, which has resulted in a high mortality toll. In addition, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and statewide lockdowns implemented in many nations have impacted the therapeutic nutrition sector.

The rise in the prevalence of metabolic disorders and rising cases of metabolic cases are driving the growth of the global clinical nutrition market. However, other factors such as the increasing number of pre-mature births and unhealthy dietary habits lead to malnutrition and the growing geriatric population boost market growth. In addition, the high healthcare expenditure in emerging countries such as the United States, UK, and China provides lucrative growth opportunities for the new market players through investments.

On the other hand, clinical nutrition focuses on diagnosing, treating, and preventing nutritional and metabolic diseases linked with chronic or acute disorders caused by nutrient and energy deficiency. Most importantly, nutritional aid is provided for various reasons, including minimizing the effects of hunger and enhancing disease treatment response. When nutrient absorption or food intake is limited for an extended period, clinical nutrition support is essential to avoid famine and other serious repercussions.  The growing geriatric population is significantly contributing to the clinical nutrition market due to the rising number of senior people and the development of therapeutic nutrition products tailored to the needs of the aged. According to the Global Coalition on Aging study, November 2020, the prevalence of malnutrition in hospitalized patients was around 31%. According to the Global Surgery Foundation, nearly 30% of worldwide diseases can be treated with surgery and require the direct care of a surgeon. According to the Global Coalition on Aging study, November 2020, the prevalence of malnutrition in hospitalized patients was around 31%.

Furthermore, the Global Surgery Foundation estimates that almost 30% of all disorders in the world can be treated with surgery and require the direct attention of a surgeon. Therefore, clinical nutrition is important during surgeries since it helps to minimize any adverse effects on patients while also allowing surgeons to work in a controlled environment.

However, a lack of information, particularly in emerging nations, and strict government rules are only a few barriers that may limit the use of alternative nutrition methods. In addition, the expansion of the clinical nutrition industry may be hampered in the world's least developed countries, which have substantially lower living standards, due to a refusal of rationalized methods of nutrition consumption and a lack of adoption of modern approaches.
