Asia-Pacific Clinical Nutrition Market Analysis

The Asia-Pacific clinical nutrition market is expected to register a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period.

COVID-19 significantly impacted the market studied in the initial phase as the patients affected with COVID-19 required nutrition and a proper diet to maintain their quality of life. For instance, an article published by PubMed depicted that an effective strategy, along with proper nutrition to prevent and treat COVID-19, was anticipated to improve nutrition to strengthen the immune system. Vitamin D has been recommended to prevent COVID-19, and an intake of 250 μg/day has been shown to raise serum 25(OH)D concentrations above 40-60 ng/mL (100-150 nmol/L). Low vitamin D3 leads to an increase in anti-inflammatory and immunoregulating interleukin 10 (IL-10) cytokines. It reduces the frequency of Th17 cells, which, in turn, decreases IL-17 and proinflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFα) production, decreasing inflammatory effects in the host. Thus, vitamin D deficiency is often found in patients with COVID-19. The Japanese diet closely resembles a "nutrient-dense dietary pattern", and it includes a lot of elements that guard against COVID-19 infection. People have become more aware and conscious of their nutritional intake in the post-pandemic scenario, which is anticipated to drive market growth in the coming years.

The major factors attributing to the growth of the Asia-Pacific clinical nutrition market include an increase in the prevalence of metabolic disorders and neurological diseases, a rise in the geriatric population in the Asia Pacific Region, and high spending on healthcare. For instance, as per the IDF 2021 report, in India, the number of people with diabetes was 74,194.7. Furthermore, as per the same source, the total diabetes-related health expenditure in 2021 was USD 8,485.8 million.

Dietary therapy is critical for normal growth and development and to prevent acute complications. It prevents long-term complications of the given disorder. A failure to follow specific dietary treatment can lead to complications and even death in individuals with metabolic disorders. Nutrition therapy for patients with inherited metabolic disorders is lifelong. The management of patients with many inborn errors of metabolism requires a multidisciplinary approach that combines both nutrition and medical management. In these disorders, nutrition therapy is a critical component of the management to prevent acute complications, such as metabolic decompensation, and to prevent long-term complications of the given disorder.

Vitamin D deficiency is one of the major crises faced by many people and is likely to cause serious illness. The presence of competitors, mergers, acquisitions, and product launches is anticipated to boost market growth as these activities increase the availability of products and raise competition. For instance, in March 2021, Royal DSM, a purpose-led global science-based company in nutrition, health, and sustainable living, launched ampli-D, a fast-acting form of vitamin D for dietary supplements in Australia. The availability of DSM's ampli-D in Australia, the first market for its launch, follows regulatory approval by TGA for its use in dietary supplements that do not require a doctor's prescription.

Most metabolic syndromes result in situations where the body lacks the capability to synthesize non-essential molecules, like vitamins and amino acids, and several molecules involved in metabolic pathways. Most of these conditions can be managed only with the supplementation of one or two nutrients. All these factors are anticipated to boost the market growth. However, there are a few factors that may restrain market growth, such as the heterogeneous nature of government coverage/reimbursement across countries.

Asia-Pacific Clinical Nutrition Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the APAC Medical Clinical Nutrition Market according to our research experts:

Oral and Enternal Segment is Expected to Hold a Significant Market Share in the Asia-Pacific Clinical Nutrition Market Over the Forecast Period

Oral clinical nutrition accounts for the largest share owing to the ease of administration and wide acceptance of the oral route. Among all the routes of administration available for clinical nutrition, oral and enteral routes are used the most, followed by the parenteral route. This is mainly because of the additional cost of processing the products/nutrients involved in parenteral routes. Until other routes of administration are deemed necessary, physicians mostly prefer the oral route, as it involves lesser complexities and costs compared to the other two routes of administration. If the patients can consume food orally, their stomach and intestine functionalities are not affected, and the oral route is the preferred route of administration for clinical nutrition.

It is estimated that the number of people with dementia is expected to upsurge to 1.1 million by 2058. People with dementia are likely to use oral nutritional supplements to improve their living. For instance, as per an article published by PubMed, low dietary intake is a sign of malnutrition risk in dementia patients, which has an impact on daily activities, nutritional statuses, and disease progression. The results of the study demonstrated that oral nutrition supplements (ONS) have a positive impact on nutritional intake, nutritional status, and cognitive and physical outcomes in older people with dementia.

Furthermore, the rise in government initiatives to provide proper nutrition to poor economies is one of the major fuelling factors for the growth of the market . For instance, as per the March 2022 update from WHO, the Republic of Korea contributed USD 7.8 million to improve the health and nutrition of school-aged children in Timor-Leste. In collaboration with the Timor-Leste Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sports (MoEYS) and the Ministry of Health (MoH), the WFP and WHO are anticipated to use this donation to improve the health and nutritional status of schoolchildren.

Thus, owing to the above factors, the oral and enteral route of the administration segment is likely to witness growth over the forecast period.

India is Anticipated to Dominate the Market and is Expected to Grow During the Forecast Period

India is expected to dominate the clinical nutrition market throughout the forecast period, owing to factors such as the rising prevalence of neurological diseases, metabolic disorders, and cancer and the rise in healthcare expenditure. For instance, the Dementia India report 2020 mentioned that the estimated number of people aged above 60 who had dementia was 5.3 million. This means that one in 27 people above the age of 60 in India has dementia. People with dementia take nutritional supplements in order to improve their patient outcomes and quality of life. For instance, as per an article published in March 2022 by PubMed, people with dementia and Alzheimer's disease frequently have vitamin B12 and folic acid deficiencies. Together, these two supplements can aid in reducing blood levels of an amino acid that is frequently connected to dementia.

Furthermore, cancer patients frequently require nutritional supplements, as their body weakens as therapy starts. Hence, oncology nutrition holds a major part in the clinical nutrition market. As per the Globocan 2020 report, the total number of cancer cases in 2020 in India was 1,324,413. Furthermore, the presence of competitors, mergers, and collaborations in the field of clinical nutrition in India is likely to increase market growth as these factors improve the competition and product availability. For instance, Esperer launched its nutrition development center in Hyderabad; the facility in Hyderabad is anticipated to house a variety of cohesive capabilities, including investigative workrooms and product improvement sub-centers with a devoted laboratory for analyzing sensory components, packing, and taste. At the new EsNDC, Esperer is focused and keeps track of cancer patients to identify dietary changes and assists in creating novel nutrition products and delivery technologies to broaden its existing and future product offerings.

Hence, considering the above-mentioned factors, India is likely to witness growth in the studied market over the forecast period.
