COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The global COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the supply chain, retail distribution and also influenced consumer behavior for many products around the world. Though, the gummy market has recorded a spike in demand during the pandemic due to the growing awareness among the consumers related to health & wellness products. The imposition of numerous restrictions like the lockdown travel ban, and others have restricted the global supply chain of a wide range of products. The transition of goods was also restricted across regions.

Moreover, the importance of consuming vitamins like vitamin D and vitamin C has increased because they help in boosting the immunity of a person, which would further support the growth of the gummy market. The growing concerns related to the security of human health and rising awareness among consumers about immunity boosters are some of the driving aspects fueling the demand for dietary supplement products like gummies. In addition, the convenience offered by gummies and the rising pill swallowing issues among consumers are also contributing to the surging growth of the gummy market.

Market Growth Factors:

The increasing demand for dietary supplements

The growing population of health-conscious consumers is resulting in the surging demand for nutritional food products with crucial health elements to help in preventing various diseases and enhance physical & mental health. In addition, growing awareness among consumers in emerging and emerged nations is supporting the growth of the gummy market. There are several benefits offered by gummies infused with vitamins and minerals, which is attracting more consumers towards it. Furthermore, the shifting consumer preferences for a variety of healthy products containing nutrients like vitamins.

The growing geriatric population and the changing lifestyle of consumers

The geriatric population that faces problems with pill consumption is increasing across the globe. This is further bolstering the demand for convenient vitamin-based products, which could be consumed like candies and help in easily swallowing the gummies. In addition, the shifting lifestyle and busy schedule of the millennials in different regions and nations are demanding more products that are infused with more nutrients and can be easily consumed without any extra effort, which is fueling the growth of the gummy market globally.

Market Restraining Factor:

The low availability of raw materials and high cost of products

Natural vitamins are difficult to find and extract and thus, several manufacturers opt for synthetic vitamins, which are relatively cheaper and easily accessible. Even if natural or organic vitamins are witnessing a surge in demand among consumers, their manufacturing costs and investment are high, which would restrict the manufacturers from using these naturally sourced vitamins. In addition, the low availability of natural vitamins adds up to the overall cost of production and ultimately increases the price of the product.
