Prebiotic fiber market Outlook (2023 to 2033)

Prebiotics are fibers found mostly in natural foods such as onion, garlic, asparagus, and others. These fibers are a vital source of natural feed for beneficial bacteria that reside in the human gut. Prebiotic fiber is a non-digestible food substance that helps to stimulate the growth of the favorable species of bacteria in the human gut, and thus it benefits the host.

The market is anticipated to grow with a CAGR of 12.29% in the forecast period. The market is primarily driven due to increasing consumer awareness of health, and nutrition and an exaggerated focus on the need for essential fiber in the diet. Besides the growing dairy industry is anticipated to be the most important factor responsible for the growth of the prebiotics fiber market. Further, increasing concerns over diabetes, obesity, and high cholesterol has led to increasing use of fat and sugar-free products that are further slated to boost the demand for prebiotics.

Probiotic supplements intended to support digestive health had a 1.1 billion-dollar market value in 2020. It is anticipated to increase to $2.1 billion. The markets for all different types of applications are anticipated to develop, with urinary tract health products experiencing the slowest growth.

From lips to stomach, probiotics promote healthy bodily functions and aid in the management of pathogenic microbes like germs. Probiotics help with digestion and enhance nutrient absorption when used in the proper amounts. Probiotics can be found as manufactured supplements in addition to their natural occurrence in fermented foods and cultured milk. Learn more about how probiotics affect your gut health in the next paragraphs.

The high cost involved in the research and development of prebiotic fiber and stringent regulation on new ingredients for registration and labeling in the U.S. and Europe is likely to restrict growth to some extent.

Why probiotic fiber is in demand?

Probiotic fiber has been shown to have numerous health benefits. It helps to promote a healthy digestive system, improve gut health, and reduce inflammation. It can also help to regulate blood sugar levels, reduce cholesterol levels, and boost the immune system. Additionally, prebiotic fiber can help to reduce the risk of certain diseases, such as colon cancer.

The demand for prebiotics fiber is rapidly rising within the functional food market due to its vast applications in dairy products, breakfast cereals, health drinks, nutrition bars, meat products, beverages, bakery products, mineral supplements, meat products, weight loss products, infant food, green foods, and pet food. Furthermore, the ever-rising usage of prebiotics in dairy products is a lucrative sector for manufacturers as the dairy market grows significantly and is a multi-billion-dollar industry.

The rising aging population supplements the growth of the market.

Developed countries have the high oldest population profiles, but developing countries have a substantially large chunk of the population moving to a geriatric population group. This population group is backed by financial stability better than the previous generations, and the governmental support for medication is also stronger than ever. Since this population group is also more informed than previous generations, the population group – particularly in developed markets, opts for medication that is friendlier to the body. Nonetheless, doctors also recommend probiotic fiber supplements to this age group instead of high dosages of chemical-based medicines.

As this population group expands, they are likely to develop an ever-expanding “greener pasture” for prebiotic fiber manufacturers. A targeted strategy from such prebiotic fiber producers and marketers has already been observed in the market, wherein they focus more on bacterial strains particularly doctored for old age people. The number of older people in developing countries is projected to increase by more than 250%, compared to a 71% increase in the expanded edition.

Pet owners, Hobbyists, and Cattle farmers are exploring probiotics as animal feed.

Animal owners are now generally more conscious of the significance of providing their pets with a healthy diet, whether they are keeping them as livestock or as companion animals. The health of their animals is of greater importance to livestock owners, who prefer to give them enough food and supplements to keep them in good health. On the other hand, owners of companion animals are more concerned with giving domestic animals proper nourishment as opposed to feeding them leftovers. This changing perspective among cattle producers, companion animal owners, and pet owners is broadening the market for prebiotic fiber and is projected to boost sales.
