MENA Nutraceuticals Market Grows at 7.1%, Sales Soar in GCC – Future Market Insights

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / July 13, 2020 / The MENA nutraceuticals market is expected to display an impressive 7.1% CAGR between 2015 and 2020. According to FMI reports, the current covid-19 pandemic is moderately impacting the MENA nutraceuticals industry, as supplies of products run out, despite high demand for preventive healthcare and dietary supplement products. Sales continue apace as consumers seek nutraceuticals for immune boosting properties against the covid-19 virus.

“The demand for dietary supplements is still nascent in the Middle East and North Africa region, which is rapidly growing owing to rise in self-medication, health awareness, the emergence of new brands, and investments in distribution networks, which will sustain sales growth long after the contagion comes under control,” says the FMI analyst.
