Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic contributed significantly to the growth of these supplements in the market, as during the pandemic, several individuals faced mental health issues like anxiety, depression, etc., that further shifted their preference toward Nootropic supplements to boost their mental health, focus, creativity, etc.

Key Trends in the Market
Mental illness is prevalent & one of the most common diseases in society. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), depression is a common illness in the world & approximately 3.8% of the world's population is affected by it, including 5% among adults. However, the awareness & attention to mental health were less prominent around the world. Further, COVID-19 led to increased mental instability & depression among the population during the lockdown phase, which shifted their focus toward mental health & well-being.
Thus, the customers started to shift towards a healthy diet with supplements to boost their mental health & stability. However, the increasing awareness among the population about mental health & available medication for it has helped the Nootropic supplements to gain attention in the global market.
Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Nootropic Supplement Market
In 2020, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic & the lockdown imposed by the governments around the world affected the supply chain & trade of goods & people, that further led to the unavailability of raw materials affecting the production of new products in the global market. However, the increased usage of the internet, and growth in health issues like immunity, depression, etc., during the pandemic period accelerated the popularity of the Nootropic supplements in the market. Post-pandemic the need for memory-improving drugs also witnessed a surge in the demand due to increased stress levels among consumers.
Hence, the increased stress level, growing penetration of the internet among customers & online advertisements have played a significant role in creating awareness about Nootropic products in the market during the COVID-19 period, thereby enhancing the market growth.
