Global Vitamin D Therapy Market Forecasts to 2024 - Lucrative Opportunities in Countries with a High Prevalence of Under-Nutrition - ResearchAndMarkets.com

May 8, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 8, 2019--The “Vitamin D Therapy Market by Route of administration, Age Group, Purchase Pattern, Application (Osteoporosis, Rickets, Autoimmune Disorder, Skin Diseases) - Global Forecast to 2024” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The vitamin D therapy market is projected to reach USD 3.3 billion by 2024 from USD 1.9 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 11.6% during the forecast period.

Growth in this market is largely driven by the growing awareness about vitamin D deficiency, growing focus on healthy diets among consumers, and the presence of a large target patient population. Emerging economies with growing healthcare expenditures are also expected to provide opportunities for the growth of the market. On the other hand, the fortification of foods is likely to challenge market growth to a certain extent.

The major players operating in this market are Abbott (US), Sanofi (France), GlaxoSmithKline plc (UK), Pfizer Inc. (US), Merck & Co., Inc. (US), Torrent Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (India), Novartis International AG (Switzerland), Alkem Laboratories (India), Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (India), and Cadila Healthcare Ltd (India).

Oral route of administration accounted for a significant share of the market, by route of administration, in 2018

By route of administration, the vitamin D therapy market is segmented into oral and parenteral routes of administration. In 2018, the oral route of administration accounted for the largest market share. This segment is also expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the ease of administration, better pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic activity, and a higher preference for the oral route.

By purchasing pattern, prescription drugs held the largest share of the vitamin D therapy market in 2018

On the basis of purchasing pattern, the vitamin D therapy market is segmented into OTC and prescription drugs. In 2018, the prescription drugs segment accounted for the largest share of the vitamin D therapy market. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the fact that vitamin D deficiency is mostly diagnosed by registered medical practitioners that provide prescriptions for appropriate medications.

Asia Pacific dominated the vitamin D therapy market in 2018

The Asia Pacific, which includes China, Japan, India, and the Rest of Asia Pacific, accounted for the largest share of the vitamin D therapy market. The large share of this market segment can be attributed to the increasing awareness about vitamin D deficiency and supportive government policies and programs for the implementation of vitamin D deficiency treatment plans, heavy air pollution, sedentary lifestyles, increasing incidence of vitamin D deficiency, atypical diets, decreasing sun exposure, and rising malnutrition levels.
