For instance, as per the OECD data, 47% of the adult population in the United States may suffer from obesity by 2030, as compared to 37.7% in 2014. This represents an estimated 25% increase in obesity, by 2030.  Furthermore, changing lifestyle and growing fast food industry and the launch of new and advanced products are also boosting the market growth globally. However, the availability of counterfeit products, lack of awareness among people, the high cost of the products are the few factors which might hamper the growth of the market. According to USFDA, 776 dietary supplement products from 146 different manufacturers sold between 2007 and 2016 contained synthetic/prescription drugs. Most of these products are marketed for just two conditions, sexual enhancement (45.5 percent) or weight loss (40.9 percent). Most recently, on Nov. 30, 2018, the FDA advised consumers not to purchase a product called Willy Go Wild, available online and in some retail stores because the product includes hidden prescription drugs.
