Analyzing the COVID-19 Impact: Herbal Supplements Witness Disruptions Owing to Increased Production of Conventional Medications – Future Market Insights

Herbal supplements continue to gain traction as immunity boosters during the global pandemic

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / May 11, 2020 / Driven by preventive healthcare initiatives, the global herbal supplements market is set to reach a US$ 191.7 Bn mark in revenues, by 2030. Growing popularity as immune system boosters during the current COVID-19 outbreak will further contribute to market growth, as projected by a new study of Future Market Insights (FMI). The global herbal supplements market continues to witness growth on the back of the rising disposable per capita income in developed countries. However, lack of substantiating proof on the effectiveness of herbal supplements on COVID-19 restricts sales and revenue.

“Herbs such as forsythia have been found to be effective against viruses such as SARS. However, the ongoing pandemic, has limited the demand for herbal supplements, as reports of success to combat the coronavirus, has been anecdotal so far,” says the FMI study.
