Vitamin K2 Market

Top Companies in Vitamin K2 Industry - Gnosis By Lesaffre (Nattopharma) (France), Kappa Bioscience AS (Balchem Corp.) (US) and J-Oil Mills, Inc. (Japan)

The vitamin K2 market is estimated to be USD 140 million in 2024 and poised to achieve a 13.7% CAGR, reaching USD 265 million by 2029. As people become more informed about the role of vitamins in preventing chronic diseases, there is a heightened demand for Vitamin K2 due to its critical function in bone and cardiovascular health. Awareness campaigns and educational programs significantly contribute to this trend, emphasizing the benefits of Vitamin K2 in maintaining calcium balance and reducing the risk of osteoporosis and arterial calcification.

The global demographic shift towards an aging population is another significant factor propelling the Vitamin K2 market. Older adults are more susceptible to bone density loss and cardiovascular diseases, conditions that Vitamin K2 helps mitigate. As life expectancy increases, so does the need for nutritional supplements that support healthy aging. Consequently, the market for Vitamin K2 is experiencing substantial growth as it becomes an integral component of the dietary regimen for the elderly.
