Vitamin A Market Challenges
The High Incidence of Vitamin A Toxicity is Anticipated to Hamper Market Growth.
Growing prevalence of vitamin A toxicity in developed regions is a major challenge to the market as it reduces the use of products containing the vitamin in the region. The toxicity can result in various symptoms such as headache, rash, hair loss and even liver damage. Moreover, vitamin A toxicity in pregnant women can result in severe birth defects and liver toxicity for the infant. There are nearly 60,000 cases of vitamin A toxicity in the US every year. According to the US National Library of Medicine, supplements are the most common cause of vitamin A toxicity.
COVID-19 Pandemic and Subsequent Restrictions is Projected to Limit Growth Opportunities.
The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent restrictions have significantly affected the global distribution of vitamin A supplements and drugs. The effect was more severe in low-income regions of Africa where the prevalence of vitamin A deficiency is the highest. For instance, vitamin A deficiency is responsible for nearly 6% of child deaths under the age of 5 years in Africa. The pandemic caused major difficulties in procuring essential vitamin A products and caused challenges in ensuring effective distribution among the population. For instance, only 41% of the targeted African children were provided with vitamin A supplements in 2020. According to the UNICEF, the coverage in West and Central Africa decreased from 67% in 2019 to only 29% in 2020.
