Sports Nutrition Market – Segmentation

  • Isotonic drinks are nearly 6%-8% carbohydrates and are designed to deliver 1.5 to 2x the amount of carbs that most hypotonic drinks offer. However, they take longer to enter the bloodstream. These drinks are basically more useful for shorter duration, high-intensity exercise, where getting carbs in a quick manner could be more important than warding off dehydration.

  • Sports supplements are considered dietary supplements that are consumed orally to support diet. Active adults or athletes could include supplements to help meet their nutritional requirements for improving nutrient deficiencies, enhancing athletic performance, and achieving personal fitness goals.

  • Plant-based diets help athletes improve their performance by decreasing weight, creating leaner bodies, and improving stamina. In addition, they also improve arterial flexibility and diameter, leading to better blood flow. The plant-based raw material segment generated a revenue of USD 2.09 billion in 2020.

Sports Nutrition Market – Dynamics

Athletes, as well as frequent exercisers, have different nutritional requirements compared to the general population. Increasing awareness of the uniqueness of each person’s gut microbiome is spurring the demand for tailored sports nutrition. Market players are making it possible for consumers to customize their products according to their personal requirements, including gut health. In addition, players are combining more traditional features of sports nutrition with niche benefits. For instance, a pre-workout product supplement with collagen for joint and skin health and probiotics for immunity. Sports and exercise performances are significantly influenced by nutrition, and each individual responds differently to the same food items, nutrients, and supplements. Dietary supplements and an adequate amount of nutrition intake could affect the physical performance of an individual.

  • Increasing Demand for Clean Label
