Besides, increasing adoption of immunity-boosting products due to the COVID-19 pandemic is also anticipated to accelerate the market growth over the forecast years. According to the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) report in 2020, the consumption of dietary supplements among Americans was about 73 percent. However, taking dietary supplements among individuals for immune health has been increased from 27 percent to 32 percent from 2019 to 2020.

An unhealthy diet limited physical activity, and a sedentary lifestyle are the key factors responsible for increasing vitamin and mineral intake to improve an individual's immunity, especially in the developed regions such as North America and Europe.
