Calcium citrate malate is a calcium supplement that contains malic acid and citric acid along with calcium. It helps in the better absorption of calcium in the body as compared to other calcium supplements. The addition of malic acid and citric acid allows calcium to remain in soluble form for better absorption. Calcium citrate malate is majorly used as a dietary supplement to prevent and treat osteoporosis. The growing prevalence of osteoporosis across the globe is fueling the demand for calcium supplements including calcium citrate malate.
The global Calcium Citrate Malate Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 334.08 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.4% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
The growing demand for dietary supplements to treat osteoporosis is the major trend driving the calcium citrate malate market.
