Increasing Consumption Of Prebiotics Is Expected To Drive The Growth Of The Global Prebiotics Market

   May 16, 2023

Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients that are often added to functional foods. They are foods that promote the growth of beneficial bacteria and fungi in the gut. They are widely used in food & beverage, dietary supplement, animal feed, and other products due to their multiple benefits, including enhancing digestive health. Inulin, fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), and galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) are widely used as prebiotics in the food & beverage and supplement industries due to their ability to improve digestion and immunity. Inulin and mannan-oligosaccharides are used in animal feed to improve animals’ gut health and immunity to prevent pathogens from entering the food chain.

According to a survey conducted by Yakult Honsha Co., Ltd. (Japan) across 33 countries in 2022, around 40% of 73,000 respondents had digestive disorders. According to the International Food Information Council, in 2021, 20% of American consumers sought health benefits from their diet, with approximately 35% seeking digestive health benefits. Also, around 50%, 25%, and 39% of consumers took prebiotics through food, beverages, and supplements, respectively, to improve their health. Thus, the increasing consumption of prebiotics through food & beverage products and dietary supplements, coupled with the increasing prevalence of digestive disorders, is expected to boost the growth of the prebiotics market.

According to a large-scale multinational study by the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), in 2020, more than 40% of the global population had functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) that affected their quality of life and healthcare requirements. Additionally, according to the Global Prebiotic Association, in 2021, gut health was the main factor driving the consumption of prebiotics, followed by immunity, stress, regularity, and bone health. Approximately 90% of dieticians suggest prebiotics for gut/digestive health improvement. Hence, rising concerns regarding digestive health are driving the demand for prebiotics.

The growing demand for prebiotics from various industries, including nutritional supplements, has increased the development of prebiotic ingredients for innovation. The players in this market are partnering to offer innovative products. For instance, in November 2021, ADM (U.S.) acquired Deerland Probiotics & Enzymes (Georgia), a producer of dietary supplements containing probiotics, prebiotics, and enzymes. Moreover, in February 2021, DuPont’s Nutrition & Biosciences business (Denmark) merged with IFF (U.S.) to strengthen its market position in the Nutrition segment. Such developments are expected to support the growth of this market.

Therefore, the increased use of prebiotics in food & beverage products and dietary supplements due to their health benefits, the increasing prevalence of gut disorders, and partnerships between market players are expected to boost the demand for prebiotics, driving the growth of this market.

Meticulous Research®, in its latest publication on the Global Prebiotics Market, states that the prebiotics market is projected to reach $6.61 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period 2022–2029.
