The growth in demand for homeopathic products is set to increase significantly over the course of the next few years. According to research by US-based Transparency Market Research, growing interest in homeopathy in developed countries has fueled the growth in the homeopathic products market, which is forecast to reach over $17bn by 2024 - the same market was calculated to be worth $386m in 2015.
Whilst the Middle East and Africa and Asia Pacific regions are set to produce the largest growth, due to increased disposable income and greater availability of products online respectively, it is anticipated that Europe will maintain its stronghold on the market throughout this time. Mustard Research's 2015 consumer research report found that 9 million people in the UK use homeopathic products and TMR's report suggests that there is no sign of its popularity diminishing, as more holistic forms of treatment are favoured and credible alternatives to over-prescription are sought.
