The size of the global clinical nutrition market was valued at USD 15.18 Billion in 2023. The global market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.13% from 2024 to 2029 and be worth USD 19.35 billion by 2029 from USD 15.81 billion in 2024.
Clinical nutrition aids in improving absorption, metabolism, digestion, and discharge functions by providing essential nutrients such as minerals, vitamins, and proteins. These products are vital for patients with a high degree of malnourishment, patients in intensive care units, patients recovering from trauma or surgery, and patients suffering from chronic diseases. In addition, it has been found that treating disease-related malnutrition with clinical nutrition therapies can reduce mortality.
Global Clinical Nutrition Market Drivers:
The rising incidence of metabolic disorders is propelling the growth of the clinical nutrition market. The number of people suffering from metabolic disorders such as diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular diseases, among others, has grown gradually over the last few years owing to the rising adoption of sedentary lifestyles and dietary habits. As per the data published by the IDF Diabetes Atlas, an estimated 537 million adults aged between 20 and 79 suffered from diabetes in 2021 and the number is expected to grow further in the coming years. The growing diabetic population is expected to result in the increasing consumption of clinical nutrition products as these products can help manage blood glucose levels and prevent complications. Similarly, obesity is another notable factor that can result in the diagnosis of several metabolic disorders, including type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, many healthcare providers suggest the consumption of clinical nutrition products to fight against the issues of obesity, as these products aid in weight management and promote overall health. According to the statistics published by the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 1.6 billion adults worldwide are overweight.
The growing healthcare expenditure is further fuelling the clinical nutrition market growth. The rising healthcare spending is expected to result in a growing demand for clinical nutrition products to support patient care. The growing chronic disease patient population contributes to the increasing healthcare expenditure as these patients must undergo continuous medical management and face nutritional issues. In such cases, clinical nutrition products help chronic disease patients to manage their conditions and maintain their nutritional balance, which further results in improved patient outcomes and reduced need for additional medical interventions that can be costly.
An increasing aging population, rapid adoption of technological developments in the manufacturing practices of clinical nutrition products, rising awareness and consumption of clinical nutrition products among the people and growing demand for parental nutrition contribute to the market growth. Furthermore, rising demand for specialized pediatric nutrition, a growing number of preterm births and cases of malnutrition and increasing demand for nutritional support in critical care are fuelling the growth rate of the global clinical nutrition market.
Global Clinical Nutrition Market Restraints:
Poor awareness levels among healthcare professionals and people regarding the benefits of clinical nutrition products are hampering the market growth. The high cost of some clinical nutrition products and the availability of alternative products are further hindering market growth. Strict regulations and guidelines for clinical nutrition products to enter the market are other notable factors impeding the market growth. Limited reimbursement policies for clinical nutrition products in many countries, unavailability of clinical nutrition products in some countries, and side effects associated with the consumption of clinical nutrition products are further inhibiting the market’s growth rate. Misconceptions about clinical nutrition products and the lack of adequate healthcare infrastructure in some countries are resulting in the poor accessibility and availability of clinical nutrition products, which are diluting the overall market's growth rate.
Impact of COVID-19 on the global clinical nutrition market:
Clinical nutrition has experienced a favorable impact from the recent COVID-19 pandemic. The consumption of clinical nutrition products has grown rapidly during the COVID-19 pandemic among the chronic disease patient population. People prefer to consume nutritional products from the comfort of home to manage their diseases during the COVID-19 pandemic and clinical nutrition products have appeared as an attractive option. During the COVID-19 pandemic, products that can boost the immunity of people have increased significantly, including clinical nutrition products. The usage of telehealth and remote patient monitoring has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic and healthcare providers have taken virtual consultations and remote monitoring services and asked patients to consume clinical nutrition products to keep their health in a promising condition. On the other hand, the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in the supply chain ecosystems have made it complex for the manufacturers of clinical nutrition products to do the production at the required capacity, which has shown a negative impact on the growth of the clinical nutrition market. However, this impact was negligible. Considering the decreasing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the clinical nutrition market is expected to grow at a noteworthy CAGR during the forecast period.
