Germany has been by far the largest country in the EU in terms of population, with a total of 81.9 million inhabitants in 2012. Health and wellness has always been considered as an integral part of the lifestyle of the people in Germany. The country has witnessed an increasing trend towards nutraceuticals such as vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements for over more than a decade.

The nutraceuticals market in Germany is presently in a mature phase with the sub-markets, including functional food and beverages and dietary supplements, experiencing saturated demand over the period of 2006-2012.
