Key Findings

  • Increasing number of disease targets, increasing healthcare expenditure, and increasing public health consciousness are likely to be the key drivers for market growth. A poor regulatory environment and low medical adherence among patients restrain market growth.
  • A robust R&D set-up, regional product differentiation, and focus on product innovation are the key competitive factors in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) medical foods market.
  • The APAC market (including Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia) still accounts for a very small share of the global medical foods market. Considering the region's population and disease prevalence rates, this region continues to have a significant growth potential.
  • Diabetes, oncology, and metabolic health are the most significant application areas in the APAC region, while immune health and cardiovascular health are promising applications for future growth.
  • Different growth factors have been evaluated for their significance in market growth and product-related trends have been identified to have the highest impact, followed by promotional efforts by medical food manufacturers.
