New Report Available: Sports Nutrition in South Korea

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Jan 18 2016

Sports nutrition saw moderate retail value sales growth of 4% in 2015, as sales reached Won20 billion for the first time. However, growth is slowing, due to the category’s increasing maturity and lack of significant further growth potential. Building muscle is not a trend in South Korea, with a slim, fit look preferred by men.

Competitive Landscape

Domestic brands enjoy a stronger position in sports nutrition in South Korea than international players. Boryung Pharmaceutical Co Ltd remains the leading player in sports nutrition, accounting for a retail value sales share of 29% in 2015, with Sang-A Pharmaceutical Co Ltd following, on a retail value sales share of 27%. These two domestic manufacturers mostly sell products through internet retailing, as well as some health and beauty specialist retailers. Most internet retailers offer free shipping for sports nutrition products, thus consumers prefer to purchase these products over the internet, both for convenience and the low unit price of products through this channel.

Industry Prospects

Sports nutrition is expected to continue to see positive, albeit moderate, sales growth over the forecast period, with a CAGR of 2% at constant 2015 prices predicted. Over the forecast period, sports protein bars may establish a more significant presence in the country. There are some products available through internet retailing, but the range of products available and demand remained low at the end of the review period. As demand for convenience rises, there is a possibility that sports protein bars may enter the market and perhaps absorb some of retail value sales share of sports protein powder.
