COVID-19 Impact on Hydroxymethylbutyrate (HMB) Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has significant ramifications for the HMB market. Despite the rise in demand for HMB in dietary supplements, lower production arising due to nationwide lockdowns to contain the spread of the virus has limited market prospects.

Most of the HMB is being manufactured in China, the epicentre of the pandemic. As a result, production has stalled, leading to a significant demand-supply gap. However, increase in demand for nutritional HMB supplements owing to the lean body mass losses in COVID-19 patients is set to normalize the HMB market growth.

Hydroxymethylbutyrate (HMB) Leading Manufacturers and Competition Landscape

The global HMB market is highly monopolistic in nature. Two players prevail in the market. One company actively consumes HMB for the production of HMB based dietary supplement with trade name “Ensure Nutrivigor”. The other firm caters to the sports supplement market under the trade name “myHMB”. The rest of the HMB is supplied to distributors such as Glanbia Nutrition, GNC, Holland & Barrett and sports supplement formulator companies.

HMB manufacturers are set to capture significant market share across key regions. However, India is set to become a barrier for HMB stakeholders due to stringent regulations from FSSAI over HMB supply.

Owing to the low market clearing price and monopolistic HMB market, key stakeholders are set to leverage their supply arm in strategic countries such as Japan, Bangladesh, Pakistan and South Korea.
