Medical preparation derived from plants or natural sources is called botanicals. Botanicals are also called herbal or natural supplements.

They are widely used in the treatment of various acute and chronic diseases. These preparations can be used on all age groups (infants, pediatrics, as well as adults). Growing incidence and prevalence of diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, obesity, diabetes, etc., along with rising geriatric patient pool, drives the growth of the global botanicals market. Morover, these preparations have minimal or zero side-effects which further boost their adoption among the users. However, despite the booming growth of the botanicals market across the globe, unavailability of scientific data for the claim of botanicals is hampering the growth of the market. Thus, many regulatory bodies have now made it compulsary that any natural product should provide scientific evidence supporting its therapeutic claims prior to commercialization. Furthermore, several governments and regulatory institutes are now funding research studies to secure supporting scientific data which is likely to further boost the adoption of these medical preparations. Other important drivers of the botanicals market are the promotional strategies adopted by the major players, rising awareness of the products, and rise in penetration of e-commerce.
