Last month, the University of Michigan’s monthly Survey of Consumers recorded its lowest consumer sentiment score since 1978. Inflation and the threat of recession has consumers thinking twice about how and where they should spend their hard earned money.
One category that consumers haven’t cut back on is nutritional health. Expenditure on supplements in North America increased by 0.2% in May from April, and the market overall has a forecasted CAGR of 5.6% through 2028.
