Global Glucosamine Market: Overview
Increasing the use of combination therapy
Although there are a substantial number of drugs available for the treatment of joint-related conditions, many researchers believe chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis do not respond to a monotherapy drug or a single treatment. Treatments of such conditions are most effective when given in combination. In combination therapy, nutraceutical supplements such as glucosamine are administered along with other drugs or dietary supplements such as chondroitin. Hence, the use of combination therapy will lead to the expansion of the global glucosamine market at a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period.
Growing use of nutraceuticals in treating chronic diseases
Nutraceuticals such as glucosamine supplements are used to treat and manage various chronic diseases owing to their additional nutritional and therapeutic effects along with their health benefits and lesser side effects compared with drugs. A nutraceutical also offers physiological benefits such as protection against various chronic diseases and lifestyle disorders (obesity and cardiovascular diseases). Apart from effectively treating orthopedic conditions in combination therapy, glucosamine is also used to manage conditions such as interstitial cystitis, multiple sclerosis, and others. Vendors are also focusing on making non-animal-derived glucosamine to cater to individuals who are allergic to crustaceans and follow a kosher diet. This development is expected to have a positive impact on the overall market growth.
