The clinical nutrition market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.96% during the period 2021-2026.

Clinical nutrition remains very important to ensure better survival outcomes for patients with critical conditions resulting from COVID-19. The increasing number of cases of malnutrition is accelerating the growth of the industry. Clinical nutrition is a highly regulated market and is generally prescribed for management during medical surveillance in various settings such as hospitals, clinics, and home care settings.


The global Clinical Nutrition market research report includes detailed segmentation by route administration, age group, product type, application, distribution channels, end users, geography.

By focusing on health and wellness, aging well, and disease prevention by consumers, healthcare providers demand preventive clinical nutrition products and are growing rapidly. The sellers offer the product as a dessert, yogurt, soup and salt and as a powder to attract the attention of customers. Key players are investing in research activities to formulate a nutritional supplement that provides nutritional benefits to patients with certain medical conditions.

Global brands such as Abbott, Nestlé, Nutricia and Fresenius Kabi offer parenteral, enteral and oral nutrition products for infants. The percentage of infants with lactose intolerance is incredibly high and represents 71% of the population. The market has also seen high demand due to the many advertising campaigns. The increasing prevalence of malnutrition in children is the main driver behind the demand for clinical nutrition in children.

Latin America and APAC are expected to experience strong traction for semi-solid powder products in the industry. Most standard clinical nutrition products are powder based as they provide 100% micro and macronutrient requirement. Players are seeing the highest level of adoption of clinical nutrition in physical stores such as supermarkets, hypermarkets, and other e-commerce websites due to the flexibility offered in packaging techniques.

In recent years, metabolic disorder syndrome has become much more common in the United States. It is estimated that approximately 37% of American adults suffer from metabolic disorders, thus increasing the demand for clinical nutrition around the world. Major innovations and advancements in the fields of nutrition have led to rapid growth of the industry over the past decade. Developing Asian countries are becoming a focal point for important players in the market.

The distribution of clinical nutrition products is very important, requiring research activities to understand the most efficient and secure channel. An ideal distribution mix consisting of a considerable portion of each delivery method is considered the most successful strategy. Major retail channels such as Walmart, Costco, Walgreens, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons are the main sources of sales in Western countries.

The growing incidence of malnutrition in hospital patients is driving the demand for oral, enteral and parenteral nutritional products around the world. Suppliers conduct equipment and food training sessions for healthcare professionals and hospital patients to increase sales of clinical nutrition. Brands such as Abbott and B. Braun offering ready-to-drink nutritional products for chronically ill patients, easy to consume and tasty products are likely to gain more consumer attention.


The proportion of cancer deaths in Asia is about 58.3% higher than the cancer incidence rate. The prevalence of chronic diseases is increasing the demand for clinical nutrition products in the region. The rapid growth of the e-commerce industry in the Asia-Pacific region is expected to remain at the forefront of the rapid growth of online sales of nutritional products in the Asia-Pacific region. A large population base and the presence of high medical needs are expected to create new growth avenues for the region’s market.


The global clinical nutrition market is becoming highly consolidated, with an increasing number of mergers and acquisitions occurring globally. Due to the possibility of gradual growth, non-traditional players are expected to venture into the clinical nutritional supplements market during the forecast period. The global market is very competitive with the presence of important suppliers.

Abbott Laboratories, Baxter International, B. Braun, Danone and Nestlé Health Science are the main players. Due to the higher level of fragmentation, most players engage in mergers and acquisitions to overcome the industry’s competitive advantage.
