Unlike regular nutrition, clinical nutrition provides consumers nutritional ingredients that are essential for a balanced functioning of physiological operations. These ingredients could include proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and even water. Proper cellular functioning within a human body is vital for its existence, making clinical nutrition vital for every consumer in the world. Rising incidence of malnutrition-associated deaths recorded across the world is driving the demand for clinical nutrition. High birth rate, rising premature birth rate, and food scarcity are all directing towards higher consumption of clinical nutrition. Even developed countries are registering deaths due to imbalanced diets, which is why clinical nutrition products are important for consumers who have access to ample food but are not consuming essential ingredients in right amounts.

In 2012, over 30% of all hospitalized patients in Europe will be malnourished. Clinical nutrition is viewed as the most effective treatment for malnutrition. It is also the most affordable way of recovering from malnutrition. Countries such as China and India have high birth rates, which renders irregularities in proper food supply to individuals. Inconsistent availability of right nutrition to consumers in such developing countries is driving the demand for clinical nutrition.

According to the report, Asia-Pacific is the largest clinical nutrition market in the world. Primarily, increasing birth rate of APAC countries is instrumenting this rampant growth in their clinical nutrition markets. Growing geriatric population in this region is also contributing to higher consumption of clinical nutrition in Asia-Pacific. In North America, the clinical nutrition market is growing on the account of increasing consumer awareness about health benefits associated with clinical nutrition. Increasing healthcare costs in the U.S. are also driving the demand for clinical nutrition, which is relatively affordable. Europe’s clinical nutrition market, on the other hand, is growing due to high birth rates and rising population of aged consumers.
