2016-2020 Inulin Market Outlooks Compared to 2021-2031 Forecast

Historically, from 2016 to 2020, demand for inulin surged at a CAGR of around 6%. Growth was majorly underpinned by their documented benefits with regard to maintaining gut health and digestion. Furthermore, inulin is effective in controlling glycemic status and improving lipid profile in type 2 diabetic patients.

The market witnessed a further demand spike in 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in the pharmaceutical sector. As consumers became increasingly conscious about maintaining a good immune system, consumption of functional foods containing inulin has increased manifold.

Growing popularity of prebiotic ingredients and increasing awareness campaigns for low fat and calorie reduction are expected to fuel the global inulin market during the forecast period. Moreover, government authorized food and drugs organizations across several nations have recognized inulin as a safe product, ensuring consumer safety. According to Fact.MR, the market is poised to register a CAGR of 8.2% from 2021 to 2031.

Consistent Demand for Natural Sweeteners Driving Inulin Adoption?

Consumers are actively seeking sweeteners of both sorts, including natural and artificial sweeteners, since they are becoming more aware of the negative consequences of excessive sugar intake. Consumption of artificial sweeteners has increased in recent years, mostly with the goal of losing weight and lowering the risk of diabetes. Artificial sweeteners, on the other hand, include man-made substances that are detrimental to human health. Furthermore, artificial sweeteners have a high calorie level, which disturbs health-conscious customers.

Natural and organic sweeteners, on the other hand, have low calorie content and are free of hazardous chemicals. As a result, natural sweeteners such as agave syrup, stevia, and inulin have gained popularity. This dramatic shift in consumer adoption effectively resolves fundamental issues associated with the use of sugar and artificial sweeteners. Given that growing demand for natural sweeteners among health-conscious consumers is expected to boost inulin usage, the inulin market is expected to grow over the next decade.

A Strong Supply Chain will Bridge the Gap between Processing Facilities and Feedstock Resources

With the availability of a robust supply chain and shipping routes, the accessibility of inulin feedstock has risen substantially in the Asia Pacific area, boosting the expansion of the inulin market in the global arena throughout the forecast period.

Rising Per Capita Spending on Dietary Supplements and Functional Foods Will Benefit the Inulin Market

Dietary supplements and exogenous nutrition are becoming increasingly popular among modern consumers. A growing number of proactive consumers who are interested in health and fitness are ardent buyers of dietary supplements and functional foods. Increasing spending on clinical nutrition and functional foods is also propelling the global inulin market, and this trend is projected to continue during the forecast period.
