Nutritional Supplements in the U.S., 6th Edition



 

LONDON, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:

Nutritional Supplements in the U.S., 6th Edition

https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/96420/Nutritional-Supplements-in-the-US-6th-Edition.html

The U.S. nutritional supplements market is going to maintain its average growth rate of just over 6% per year through 2018, hitting sales of $16.4 billion in that year. Growth in the market slowed in 2013 and the first part of 2014 due to negative press coverage of supplement safety and effectiveness, and the increase in consumer use of functional foods and beverages. Omega-3/fish oil and calcium/bone supplements have been hardest hit, with sales declining by double digits in 2013. On the other hand, digestive health and probiotic sales have been healthy indeed, posting an almost 25% increase in sales of such supplements in the multi-outlet (MULO) channel in 2013. Looking ahead, sales of nutritional supplements will experience an increased growth rate between 2014 and 2018, with sales expanding due to an aging population, rising consumer involvement in personal health, and a growing expectation of personalization for virtually all services and products.

Nutritional Supplements in the U.S., 6th Edition contains comprehensive data on the U.S. market for dietary supplements, including historical (2009–2013) and forecasted (2014–2018) retail sales data. The report discusses key trends affecting the marketplace, trends driving growth, and consumer demographics. In addition, the report discusses the key supplement marketers and retailers providing nutritional supplements in the U.S., providing profiles of innovative and fast growing marketers as well as ranking marketers in terms of sales for a number of different nutritional supplement segments and categories.


Report Methodology

Consumer findings are derived from Packaged Facts' proprietary survey conducted in August 2012 and Experian's Simmons National Consumer Study (NCS) surveys, which provide current data on consumers' purchasing habits, preferences and perspectives.

Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how thes...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) ir...
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn rea...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other mach...
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice s...
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example...
