Vitamin D Therapy Market: Overview
Vitamin D is considered to be a group of fat-soluble secosteroids that aid in increasing the intestinal absorption of calcium, phosphate, and magnesium. The major vitamin D compounds in humans include vitamin D3 (known as cholecalciferol) and vitamin D2 (known as ergocalciferol). Vitamin D deficiency has been one of the common problems in the past few years owing to less exposure to sun, attributed to sedentary lifestyles. Symptoms of vitamin D deficiency include muscle weakness and bone pain. Dietary vitamin D is administered to treat the deficiency. The recommended dosage, according to the Institute of Medicine, is 600 international units (IU) for age group 1 year to 70 years and 800 IU for adults aged over 70 years. Moreover, the safe upper limit of recommended dietary allowance of vitamin D is 4,000 IU.
Vitamin D Therapy Market: Key Trends
The global vitamin D therapy market is driven by increase in the target patient population, rise in awareness about vitamin D deficiency, surge in levels of malnutrition, increase in patient compliance to oral medications, rise in prevalence of hypovitaminosis D, aging population, sedentary lifestyles, and lack of exposure to sun. Additionally, strategic acquisitions and joint ventures among companies contribute to the growth of the market. For instance, in 2018, GlaxoSmithKline completed the buyout of Novartis’ 36.5% stake in Consumer Healthcare Joint Venture. GlaxoSmithKline also entered into a collaboration with Pfizer to form a consumer health care joint venture which would offer a range of products in vitamin and mineral supplements, skin health, therapeutic oral health, respiratory, pain relief, and digestive health, among others. However, increase in circulation of fortified products is likely to hamper the growth of the market during the forecast period.
