Vital signs: Rising health consciousness and the needs of the aging population will bolster demand

Health Stores in the US

Despite the struggling US economy, the Health Stores industry has maintained revenue growth during the past five years. The aging population, improving consumer sentiment and escalating healthcare costs will continue to drive demand over the next five years. Furthermore, changing attitudes toward personal healthcare will bolster demand, particularly for natural and antiaging products. While competition will put pressure on prices, several factors will boost demand for health stores during the five years to 2019.

The Health Stores industry includes retailers that primarily sell health and personal care products. Examples include nutritional supplement stores; convalescent and prosthetic supply stores; and specialized medical supply stores. The industry excludes pharmacies and optical goods, perfume, cosmetics and beauty supply stores.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
