Vitamins and dietary supplements continued to perform well in 2016, posting current value growth of 5% to reach sales of US$27.6 billion. This performance was in line with the review period average. Demand for vitamins and dietary supplements remained positive in the US despite recent debates about the purity, health benefits and efficacy of these products. Due to high healthcare costs and an increased emphasis on preventative care, consumers are willing to spend on vitamins and dietary supplements in addition to their regular foods to maintain their health. Other factors, such as an aging population, increasing consumer engagement with health and wellness, new product launches and the improved accessibility of products through various distribution channels also supported category growth.
