London 5/16/2012 09:27 AM GMT (WooEB)

The global market for L-carnitine is forecast to reach $127.7 million by the year 2017, driven primarily by the increasing demand for functional foods, health drinks, and cosmetic products with functional properties. Growth in the market is backed by increasing consumer drive towards weight management and well-being.

Owing to its less exposure in the market as compared to other nutrients, such as vitamins, probiotics, and omega-3 fatty acids, the popularity of L-carnitine is quite less that limits the reach of the nutrient. Even the marketing activities for L-carnitine remains very niche and focused mainly towards the business-to-business segment, through various forms of sales promotion activities such as trade shows, business newsletter, and clinical researches, among others. Moreover, health benefits of L-carnitine are not adequately promoted by manufacturers, particularly when compared with other health ingredients, such as creatine. Therefore, to expand the market for L-carnitine, companies need to speed up marketing and promotional efforts.
