Presentation Topic: Trends in Omega3 Fatty Acids
Presentation Description: Over the last five years, fish oils and omega-3 fatty acids have been a leading driver of growth in vitamins and dietary supplements. With claims ranging from cardiovascular health to brain and cognitive development, the products touch on an array of top consumer health concerns. However, the category has not proven immune to the media-driven consumer backlash that has throttled growth of other high-flying supplements. Join Chris Schmidt, Euromonitor International’s consumer health analyst, as he provides a cross-regional overview of sales and discusses the consumer and market trends shaping the US$4.2 billion global fish oils/omega-3 fatty acids dietary supplements market.
