Over the last several years, supplements for Ketogenic diet has taken the market with storm. Many small scale companies have sprouted up across the world offering the latest and most effective Ketogenic diet supplemental solution available in the market. Some talk of their natural ingredient, some of their efficacy, while others boast of their taste and usability.
The market has certainly seen tremendous growth over the last few years. Group this with growing popularity among customers and more investment in research and development, the market is expected to grow leaps and bounds.
The Ketogenic diet supplement product market, however, for better or for worse remains contested by small scale companies. This ensures there’s not too much emphasis on making large profits or giving operational efficiency a greater emphasis than product quality, but lack of investments limit the potential of marketing and R&D initiatives.
Additionally, most of the products and companies are not evaluated or administered by the Food & Drug Administration. This makes it even more difficult to compare companies and their respective products.
While it is difficult to speak of market size and market share for now, based on user reviews on retail websites (such as Amazon) and product diversity indicate that some companies are clearly leading the industry.
