Medical Nutrition Market to reach USD 73.33 Billion by 2028

The Global Medical Nutrition Market will be worth USD 73.33 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a 5.4% CAGR over the predicted period. An increasingly aging population across the world, which is prone to nervous disorders, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, organ failure, and other age-related diseases, has necessitated the improvement of medical nutrition in geriatric population. There is a consistent growth in the number of patients suffering from restrictive food ingestion, who require nutrition feeding.

Nutrition has become a significant force in combating chronic diseases. Dietary intake determines the health condition of an individual besides boosting immunity. With rising concerns about containing the spread of diseases, nutrition will play a vital role in ensuring human health and wellbeing. In future, governments across the globe are expected to take important initiatives to address the issue of undernutrition and the prevention of diseases with the implementation of proper food policies.

The growing onslaught of hunger, particularly in the current situation of a raging pandemic, has aggravated the problem of malnutrition and food security. The developmental, economic, social, and medical effects of the global burden of malnutrition are not only severe but also enduring. This is true for both individuals and their families as well as for societies and countries.

According to the World Health Organization, around 45 percent of deaths among children under five years of age occur due to undernutrition. This occurs largely in low- and middle-income countries. At the same time, these countries are witnessing an increase in the rates of childhood obesity. These pressing concerns need to be addressed with proper nutrition.

Individual entities and health establishments face numerous obstacles while offering nutrition. Governments should encourage policies that support the adoption of evidence-based actions in the health sector and associate with the related stakeholders, such as community health workers, pharmacies, and other community-based organizations, to address these challenges. Such obstacles in healthcare not only restrain the progress of medical nutrition market but also highlight the existing conditions in healthcare around the world.

Nutrition is one of the suggested preventive methods to combat chronic diseases. According to the Noncommunicable Diseases (NCD) Task Force, obesity has increased by two-fold and type-2 diabetes by four-fold in the last three decades. They conclude that if the rate of increase of these diseases is not controlled, chances of meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) of keeping the level of prevalence of these diseases lower at 2020 is negligible. Diet and nutrition have significance in fostering good health. Its role in fighting chronic NCDs has established its position in preventive measures.
