Medical Nutrition Market Size




Medical nutrition is based on years of medical research on the connection between diet, nutrition, and health outcomes. It differs greatly from nutrition education, which provides general nutrition information to the public but is not intended to treat medical conditions. Medical nutrition, on the other hand, aims to teach people how to use their diet to best support their medical conditions. It not only treats existing medical conditions, but it also tries to reduce the risk of new complications.

Medical nutrition therapy is only available from a qualified dietician and can be prescribed in either a hospital or outpatient setting. Medical nutrition therapy can be as simple as designing a low-calorie diet for weight loss or as complex as prescribing a high-protein diet to promote wound healing in patients with severe burns. Medical nutrition can be a very effective component of the overall management plan for a number of common diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, cancer, digestive conditions, kidney disease, and others. This is anticipated to drive the growth of the global medical nutrition market. According to data published by the American Diabetes Association in 2019, about 11.3% (37.3 million people) of the population in the US had diabetes.

Global Medical Nutrition Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rise in Preterm Births

As per the statistics provided by the World Health Organization in 2018, approximately 15.0 million babies are born preterm and the number is rising each year.

Appropriate nutrition is essential for the growth and development of preterm infants. Early administration of optimal nutrition for preterm survivors reduces the risk of adverse health effects and improves cognition in adulthood.

  • Increasing in the Number of Surgeries

According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, in 2019, 11.9 million ambulatory surgeries took place in hospital-owned facilities in the United States.

Undernutrition is common in patients hospitalized for surgery and is often unrecognized, untreated, and worsens in hospitals. The complex synergistic relationship between nutritional status and the physiological response to surgery exposes patients to high nutritional risk. Perioperative nutritional therapy to maintain nutritional status reduces postoperative complications and accelerates postoperative recovery, especially in malnourished patients.

  • Increase in Lifestyle Disorders

According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, 30.7 percent of all men and women are overweight.

Sedentary lifestyles, poor physical activity, and unhealthy food habits are some of the causes leading to lifestyle disorders such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, obesity, depression, and others. This is contributing to the growth of the global medical nutrition market.

  • Rising Geriatric Population

As per data published by the World Health Organization, people aged 80 years or above are anticipated to reach 426 50.million between 2020 and 20

Aging leads to physical changes in the body that are more susceptible to nutritional deficiencies owing to loss of appetite, and lack of ability to chew. This is anticipated to drive the growth of the global medical nutrition market.


  • High Cost of Nutritional Therapy

  • Side Effects Caused by Medical Supplements

  • Lack of Awareness among People regarding Common Nutritional Deficiencies and their Adverse Effects

The global medical nutrition market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by distribution channels into hospitals, retail pharmacies, and E-commerce websites. The hospital segment is anticipated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2031, as there is a rising demand for healthcare owing to the increasing cases of lifestyle-related disorders such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, obesity, and others. For instance, according to the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), as of 2022, 6 out of every 10 Americans have at least one chronic disease, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, or diabetes. In addition, according to the American Hospital Association statistics, the total number of hospitals in the United States had increased to 6,093 by 2022, with a total of 920,531 occupied beds.
