According to an article by World Health Organization (WHO) in June 2021, “Obesity has reached epidemic proportions globally, with at least 2.8 million people dying each year as a result of being overweight or obese. Once associated with high-income countries, obesity is now also prevalent in low- and middle-income countries.”

The rising prevalence of overweight excess weight gain and obesity is expected to drive the global carnitine supplements market during the forecast period.

Malnutrition causes around 50% of the global deaths among children under 5 years of age. The lack of carnitine in children due to malnutrition may lead to weight gain in children with severe acute malnutrition. The developing nations are offering lucrative growth opportunities to the carnitine supplement manufacturers owing to the rising cases of deaths among children due to malnourishment.

Furthermore, the rising usage of carnitine supplements in various applications such as male fertility, sports nutrition, infant nutrition, pregnancy, and anti-aging is further fueling the adoption growth of the carnitine supplements market.

Furthermore, the manufacturing of nutraceuticals requires skilled labor, and due to the lack of availability of quality labor, the manufacturing process becomes difficult and slow. The complex process of manufacturing gives rise to the demand-supply gap, which directly hinders the market growth.
