Market Overview

Herbal medicine comprises products derived from plants and consumed directly with little processing. The lack of extensive processing is probably the major difference between herbal medicine and conventional medicine, as the field of herbal medicine seeks to preserve the natural composition of the plant, while conventional medicine devotes considerable efforts to isolate the active ingredient and produce it on a large scale into medicinal products. This field of medicine has been the oldest field of medicine in human history, as all medicine originally started with the use of plant materials for remedial action against various natural ailments. The field has experienced a resurgence in recent years due to the growing demand among consumers for naturally oriented, process-free, chemical-free medicine. Preference for personal medication could also drive the global herbal medicine market at a strong rate over the forecast period.

Growing Demand for Natural Medicines

While conventional medicine has worked tirelessly to produce harmless, isolated products from plants, the commercial aspect of conventional medicine has annoyed many consumers, while the increasing use of synthetic chemicals in medicine has also irked off a significant population. These consumers are increasingly demanding all-natural alternatives to conventional medicine, which has driven the demand for herbal medicine across the world, including developed regions such as North America and Europe as well as developing countries in Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. The increasing number of consumers opting for natural alternatives to conventional medicine is likely to remain the strongest driver for the global herbal medicine market over the forecast period.

Growing Clinical Research into Perfecting Herbal Medicine

Governments in developed countries, especially in Europe, have also been quick to take into account the growing demand for herbal medicine and have funded significant research efforts into the field to enhance the precision and sophistication of the field. This is likely to be a major driver for the Herbal Medicine Market over the forecast period, as government-funded clinical research facilities could provide a sophisticated, polished version of herbal medicine, providing the customer with the best of both worlds.

Regional Analysis

Europe is likely to remain the major regional market for herbal medicine over the forecast period due to the strong government support to clinical research into improving herbal medicine and the growing consumer demand for natural variants to conventional medicine. Asia Pacific is also likely to play a major role in the growth of the global herbal medicine market over the forecast period due to the traditional use of herbal medicine in many parts of the region.

Lack of Standardization to Hamper Herbal Medicine Market

One of the most pressing concerns for the Herbal Medicine Market is a lack of standardization among global entities and the consequent confusion and decline in trust among consumers. Due to the use of traditional methods to prepare herbal medicine in various regions, global outreach has been difficult to achieve, as different locales may prepare the same medicine in a different way. This has the potential to stunt the global herbal medicine market’s growth over the forecast period, as the well-established distribution channels of conventional medicine could give it a strong advantage over the former in the coming years.

The higher risk of allergies and other adverse effects through the use of herbal medicine is also a major restraint against the global herbal medicine market. Due to the absence of the processes practiced in conventional medicine production to remove all possible threats from the plant material and isolate only the clinically active ingredient, herbal medicine poses a greater overall risk of side effects or allergies and other harmful reactions to the medicine. This is likely to remain a key concern for the market till a strong level of standardization is achieved in herbal medicine products.
