Never before has the supplement industry seen such a dramatic decline following such a spectacular incline as it has these past few years. The decline in some categories has been expected as the post-COVID market normalizes, but other market changes came as a surprise. And the striking growth swings tell only part of the story. In 2023—as it has been doing since 1996—Nutrition Business Journal painted a picture of the what, the where and the why of today’s dietary supplement industry to better understand those swings. Take a look at the insights we’ve shared throughout the year to get a glimpse into what’s happening in this post-pandemic period.
