$2.6 Billion Sports Nutrition Market Dominated by Younger Buyers


  

The TABS Group has conducted a survey on consumer trends in vitamin and nutritional supplements annually for many years. For the first time, the study scope was expanded to include sports nutrition as an additional area of interest.

The study, fielded in early 2015, utilized responses from 1015 demographically and geographically dispersed consumers to measure both consumption and channel preferences (findings presented in the Vitamin and Sports Nutrition study webinar in May 2015.)

For purposes of the study, channels were divided into mass market and specialty outlets. Mass market includes food, drug, mass merchandisers, club and dollar stores. Specialty included nutritional specialty stores, natural food stores, online, catalog, multilevel marketing and other outlets.

Sports nutrition was defined as performance and protein powders, drinks and pills. Energy bars and shots were specifically excluded.

The goal of the study was to uncover how often consumers purchase various types of sports nutrition products and which outlets they use for their purchases.

Online Channel Remains Important for Vitamin and Supplement Buyers


  

The TABS Group has done an annual study of consumer shopping and consumption habits for vitamins for the last several years. Each year, we survey approximately 1,000 geographically and demographically dispersed consumers to gain insight into their vitamin usage and the factors that correlate to overall consumption patterns (findings presented in the Vitamin and Sports Nutrition study webinar in May 2015.)

For purposes of the study, we divided channels into mass-market and specialty groupings. The mass market category consists of food, drug, club, dollar stores and other traditional mass market outlets. The specialty category consists of nutritional specialty stores, natural food stores, catalog, multilevel marketing, online and other focused outlets.

Over the last several years, online purchasing has become an increasingly significant channel for vitamins. Comparing results from the 2014 and 2015 surveys yields significant insights into consumers’ rush to embrace the online channel.
