Consumers continue to focus on immunity and maintaining good health after the pandemic in 2021, turning towards dietary supplements. Similar to vitamins, the growing demand for dietary supplements stemmed from consumers striving to be more proactive about their health and taking preventative measures against illness. Elderly adults often consume vitamins to try and avoid developing medical conditions and becoming ill in the colder months. Pregnant and lactating women often consume dietary supplements to feed their growing babies. The government recommends that children between the ages of 6 months and five years old be given vitamin A, C, and D supplements, which will, in turn, see the market grow even further by 2020 as parents adapt this knowledge to their children. The dietary supplements are available without a prescription and come in different forms, including common vitamins, minerals, proteins, and botanicals. The factors like growing health awareness to increase the nutritional value of one's diet and the desire to maintain a stable lifestyle from the everyday workload stress an individual consumes dietary supplements.

According to the Actual Market Research report titled, "UK Dietary Supplement Market Overview, 2027," the UK dietary supplement market grew historically at a CAGR of 4.72%. Apart from omega acids and other types, probiotic supplements are the fastest growing segment with a CAGR of more than 8%. The demand for probiotics has risen due to a growth in the use of functional foods, which, in addition to providing essential nourishment, can potentially improve health. The probiotics industry is driven by consumer demand for health-related products, particularly among the younger population. The rising vegan food trend is additionally fuelling the demand for dietary supplements as vegan food lacks omega acids, calcium, and other vital nutritional qualities.

Every dietary supplement is formed into different forms like tablets, capsules, liquid, powder, soft gels, and gummies. Amongst these, the pills are the leading formulations of dietary supplements. as these formulations are generally cheaper to manufacture. Also, this often makes it affordable for consumers to adopt the dietary formulation. Liquid-filled capsules are easier to swallow, and they work faster than pills. The liquefied tablets work faster as the body requires the nutrients to be dangled in some form of liquid before it starts breaking them down and using them. Most people in the UK consume coffee capsules as the coffee capsules help to boost the absorption of vitamin B12. The capsule form of the dietary supplements has a compound annual growth rate of around 8%, one of the highest CAGR among all the dietary formulations.

Furthermore, adults are the most dominant end users. Half of the UK adult population uses supplements to maintain their workforce. Adults in the United Kingdom have a busy life schedule, and it is assumed that adults in the country use dietary supplements to keep chronic diseases. Supplements are also used to prevent the spread of chronic diseases. 
Moreover, dietary supplements are consumed to maintain energy for the long working hours.

Additionally, the growth rate is expected to be elevated for energy and weight management. Energy is one of the things required to work in day-to-day life. Infants and children consume dietary supplements to maintain their power. The parents feed their children to support their children's weight at a younger age. The average weight of a child in the UK is about 3.3 kilograms. So, to maintain this much weight, most parents feed their children dietary supplements in soft gels and gummy forms so that they can swallow them properly. The CAGR for energy and weight management is expected to grow by more than 9%. The pandemic also had an effect. That is, it has kept the pressure on revenue. It has also prompted a remarkable increase in demand for immunity-boosting products such as vitamins C and D. The growth has been such that major companies have been on recruitment drives, despite the challenges of multiple lockdowns.
