These products are produced for and used by athletes and bodybuilders to improve their performance, overall health, and muscle growth. Sports drinks are commonly utilized by athletes to replenish the water level in the body. Bodybuilders are the primary users of sports supplements. Nevertheless, these products are undergoing mass adoption by lifestyle and recreational consumers. The number of recreational and lifestyle consumers has consistently grown in the past few years.

In the past few years, health clubs and fitness centers have witnessed steady growth because of the increase in health concerns and changes in lifestyle in emerging economies. Growing health awareness and the requirement for adequate nutritional content in food have raised the demand for these products. A rise in the number of middle-aged and geriatric population engaged in sports activities has further propelled the sports nutrition market growth.

Urbanization is one of the key factors that drive the demand for sports nutrition products worldwide. It is characterized by an increase in the number of working women, a change in lifestyle, and an increase in the consumption of ready-made & fast food. These factors result in the growing intake of junk foods that may cause several health disorders, for example, obesity, which causes individuals to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Similarly, these factors also result in increased health awareness, which drives the market for sports nutrition products. Thus, to stay healthy, consumers are attracted to sports nutrition products.

Athletes and bodybuilders are the major consumers of sports nutrition products. Nonetheless, the market has benefited from the increase in the number of recreational and lifestyle users. Changing lifestyles and growing disposable income in emerging economies are the driving factors of the market. Furthermore, an increase in awareness about the benefits of protein-based sports nutrition products and active lifestyle has speeded up the growth of the sports nutrition industry.

The availability of fake products at low prices is a vital factor that restrains the growth of the market. These products are not in compliance with the food safety regulations. High levels of contraband and counterfeit products affect the sales of reputed companies and hinder their market position. Thus, the availability of these products and food safety regulations would continue to confine the growth of this market.
