Furthermore, the consumption of high-quality nutrition-infused products symbolizes one’s social status in several countries. Some companies’ manufacturing dietary supplements include organic and natural products, further driving the market growth. The use of attractive packaging techniques has led to growing consumer awareness, which, in turn, has triggered the spending on botanical supplements.
Several consumers are now becoming health conscious and prefer products that contain minimal synthetic chemicals.

Shift from Pharmaceutical to Botanical Products to Increase Market Volume
The botanical industry is an evolving and dynamic sector, which offers novel opportunities to collaborate scientific discovery with increasing consumer interest in health-enhancing foods. It follows and observes consumer trends and relationships with mass distributors; therefore, the products designed in this industry respond to direct demand. It may be used to increase health, prevent chronic diseases, delay the aging process, raise life expectancy, and help the structuring and functioning of the body. Consumers' awareness of health and wellness is changing the "prevention is better than cure" ideology. These factors have resulted in more consumers relying on nutraceuticals and botanical supplements to lead a healthy & disease-free life.
Availability of Substitutes and Complexity Related With Assessment of Active Ingredients to Limit Growth
Botanical ingredients are being extensively used in various end-use industries ranging from food & beverage to supplements for their functional and medicinal benefits. Besides, their clean label source and minimal or no side effects compared to synthetic ingredients also augment their distribution channel in end-use industries. For instance, glucosamine compounds are extensively used in the dietary supplements industry to prepare supplements associated with osteoarthritis, glaucoma, weight loss, and joint pain.
Supplements made from botanicals are complex mixtures and can display a high degree of variability in the composition of active ingredients and associated impact on biological activity. This variability in the quality of botanical ingredients mainly arises from the plant material's location, climate, time & stages of harvesting, and the manufacturing process undertaken by the ingredient producer.
Besides, data from exploratory clinical trials and studies of natural products such as botanical dietary supplements have been highly inconsistent. Medical practitioners and consumers prefer or opt for chemically derived products. Therefore, the threat of substitution from animal and synthetic ingredients and the unavailability of robust processes to assess bioactive response and components of botanical supplements are expected to hamper their penetration.
