Want To Pump Up Your Protein Supplement Business? Focus On These Sections Of Audience

As Indians become conscious about their health and how they look and feel, the market for dietary and protein supplements is beginning to pick up speed. The Indian supplement industry is expected to grow at 20 per cent to USD 6.1 billion by 2019- 2020 due to rising awareness about health and fitness and changing lifestyle.

The rise of protein as a super-nutrient and the growing urgency around increased activity and fitness, to stave off lifestyle diseases, are opening the minds of mainstream consumers. So, to make your protein supplement brand successful, capitalise on the opportunity of targeting the following audience.
