According to the Vitamin D Council, in 2016, approximately 1 billion individuals worldwide, which is nearly 15% of the world’s population, are vitamin D deficient or insufficient i.e. suffering from rickets. Increasing prevalence of rickets, poor diet and changing lifestyle have driven the growth of the rickets market. In the recent decades, the number of patients suffering from rickets is increasing continuously. Smoking is considered as one of the risk factors of rickets. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cigarette smoking is the leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for over 480,000 deaths every year. Moreover, increasing healthcare expenditure, increasing geriatric population, and increasing demand for vitamin D supplements have fuelled the growth of the market.
