Favorable government regulations regarding homeopathic medicines are expected to boost growth of the herbal medicinal products market

The global herbal medicinal products market is gaining significant traction due to launch of e-commerce for easy access of Ayurvedic therapies and supplements, changes in government regulations to promote herbal medicines, and the increasing expansion of herbal medicinal product worldwide. For instance, in September 2017, Dabur India collaborated with Amazon India to launch an Ayurveda e-marketplace. Through this e-commerce, Amazon will offer various ayurvedic medicines such as Nutriherbs Shilajeet, Himalaya wellness pure herbs ashwagandha, and Herbal Hills for treatment of variety of illnesses (gut and digestive problems and diabetes). Consumers will able to gain easy access to all Ayurvedic brand solutions (Dabur, Patanjali, and Himalaya) available in India. Furthermore, in November 2017, the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, India, has strengthened regulation regarding homeopathic medicines under the drugs and cosmetic rules, 1945. According to the new regulation, homeopathy doctors are banned from selling homeopathic medicines over the counter at clinics. Also, pharmacist will no longer require special practicing in homeopathy outlets for consultation purpose. This law will allow the pharmacist to sell homeopathic medicines along with the allopathic medicines. Furthermore, the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) of homeopathic medicines are followed by pharmacopeia standard. For instance, new law is expected to reduce the demand for raw materials to be free of organic and inorganic matter and will replace with pharmacopeia standards. Thus, these changes in law regarding homeopathic medicines are projected to make India’s regulation more specific and rigorous.

In November 2017, Australian beauty brand CANVAS expanded its presence in Singapore with the Maiko Pte Ltd to, a distributer, which will help with sales, marketing and brand-building activities of CANVAS and its aromatherapy products. With this expansion CANVAS will be able to strengthen its product portfolio in aromatherapy and enter into the global herbal medicinal products market.

In August 2017, the National Health Service England announced that the homeopathic medicines would no longer require prescription in the UK. Furthermore, in November 2017, according to the Le Figaro report, France is the biggest users of homeopathic remedies. More than a third French people use homeopathic treatments. As per the Le Figaro report, global company, Boiron is a leading manufacturer of homeopathic medicines, which earns 55% of its revenue in France alone.  This in turn is anticipated to boost growth of the herbal medicinal products market over the forecast period.

The amount of side effects triggered by ingestion of allopathic medicines are increasing rapidly, which is a major concern among the population. Moreover, herbal medicinal product comprises plant extract such as alkaloids, phenols, terpenoids, polysaccharide, glycosides, and resins, owing to its medicinal properties and serve as an alternative source of medicines over conventional allopathy for various body aliments such as gut and digestive problems, hypertension, and other illness. This has intensified the use of herbal medicinal formulations and preparation from many industries such as supplements, pharmaceuticals, and others. Also, increasing inclination of consumers towards a green label product, increasing demand for herbal medicines and its practice from the literature of Unani and Ayurveda is fueling growth of the herbal medicinal products market, owing to less side effects and non-toxic properties. Furthermore, increasing prevalence of diseases such as digestive problems, flu and kidney failure has demand for a cost-effective cure, which is expected to expand the global herbal medicinal products market over the forecast period.

Market Dynamics

Herbal medicinal products market is gaining significant traction due to inclination of consumers from conventional medicines to traditional medicines worldwide. For instance, in November 2017, Organic Aromas, a leading manufacturer of aromatherapy partnered with McGill University in Montreal, Canada to improve and educate on aromatherapy. The aim of this unique projects was to promote correct use of essential oils, develop superior understanding of aromatherapy, and identify and formulate the ‘best practices’ for the aromatherapy industry. Furthermore, in November 2017, Organic Aromas launched a ground breaking organic pure essential oils with forty different blends, which has greater aromatherapy effectiveness. Also introduced its first wireless rechargeable Nebulizing Diffuser aromatherapy device, which is sleek and effective with potential therapeutic benefits. Therefore, launched of such products is expected to drive growth of the herbal medicinal products market.
