MEA Herbal Medicine Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The size of the Middle East and Africa herbal medicine market is estimated to grow at a healthy rate during the forecast period.

Dietary supplements are an emerging market in the Middle East and Africa region driven by growing health awareness, growing self-medication, expanding distribution networks, and the arrival of new brands. This is becoming more and more common as improvements in testing and quality control and advances in clinical research show the value of herbal medicine in the treatment and prevention of disease.

The dietary supplement market has flourished in the region as the sports nutrition market has become more mainstream, driven by the use of protein for sports and weight management. In addition, consumers are increasingly familiar with probiotics and their potential benefits, which has led to the emergence of innovative probiotic products in various delivery formats, from gummy candies to functional foods.

Moreover, increased consumer awareness of preventive healthcare is helping in the growth of the food supplements market in the Middle East & Africa.

The Middle East and Africa region has seen a moderate increase in consumer health products in recent years and is expected to continue similarly and grow further. The increase in consumer health products indicates that people are more concerned about their well-being by providing adequate nutrition to their bodies. In addition, most consumers in the region are looking for products that boost immunity, such as reducing the risk of a cold or the flu.

As epidemics are widespread in Africa, people are gradually adopting preventive health care measures in terms of dietary supplements. Additionally, manufacturers in the region constantly embrace open innovation to gain cost leadership and fixed suppliers from the early stages of development. Therefore, the aforementioned factors are expected to accelerate the growth rate of the market.

Poor standardization of herbal medicines is expected to hamper the expansion of the herbal medicine market during the projection period. In addition, the manufacture of herbal medicines is an expensive process; therefore, the herbal medicines available in the market have a high cost, which is responsible for the slow growth of the Middle East and Africa herbal medicine market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the MEA herbal medicine market:

The COVID-19 outbreak has positively impacted the herbal medicine market in the Middle East and Africa due to the increasing demand for herbal medicines to boost immunity. However, herbal pharmaceuticals in the region mainly depend on India and China for the raw materials needed to manufacture drugs, which has had a negative impact on the herbal medicine market due to the travel ban in Asian regions.

Herbal medicine has gained traction in the COVID-19 era due to its chemical-free nature. Herbal remedies are the most common treatment for various illnesses.
