   Report Overview
 

Herbal products have always been popular in Europe and are also increasing in popularity within the USA. The most popular herbal extracts in Europe and the USA include; Echinacea, Ginkgo Biloba, Ginseng, Green Tea, Kava Kava, Saw Palmetto, St Johns Wort and Valerian.

The market is experiencing an overall CAGR of 8.7 percent, although this figure obscures the higher growth rates of some products, as well as declining growth rates observed by some extracts, for example Echinacea in the USA is expected to follow a CAGR of –0.8% between 1999 and 2009. Growth is driven by a number of factors for example ageing demography in both Europe and the USA and development of scientific research to support the claims that manufacturers of herbal extracts wish to use.
