The global prebiotics market has witnessed continued growth over the last few years and is projected to reach USD 8788.9 million by 2028 at a CAGR of 11.2%. Prebiotics are fibers that the body cannot digest; they act as food for the microflora present in the gut. The market growth is mainly driven by the growing emphasis on the digestive health owing to the changing lifestyle. Increased demand for functional foods and dietary supplements across the globe has boosted the demand for prebiotics in the market. Moreover, the increasing scope of application of prebiotics across industries has opened new opportunities for prebiotic manufacturers. However, limited awareness regarding the benefits of prebiotics than probiotics is expected to restrain the growth of the market. The market is competitive in nature with key industry players adopting various strategies such as expansion, acquisition, and product launches to strengthen their market positions. Most companies in the market are focused on expanding operations across regions, augmenting their capabilities, and building strong partner relations.
The growth of the global prebiotics industry is primarily driven by the increasing emphasis on improving digestive health, and surging demand for functional ingredients in food & beverages. Prebiotics are the non-digestible ingredients of the food that are high in fiber content. These ingredients serve as a food source for beneficial gut microflora or probiotics, support their growth, and help in enhancing gut health and functioning of the colon. Hectic daily schedules, long working hours, and sedentary lifestyles have impacted eating habits as well as food choices, resulting in an increased prevalence of various lifestyle-related conditions such as diabetes and obesity. A focus on improving overall health and preventive care has accelerated the demand for functional foods, including prebiotic products.
The trend for probiotics has witnessed a high growth as compared to other dietary supplements, especially prebiotics owing to the high promotional activities taken up by the probiotic vendors and the inclusion of various probiotic products in dietary plans by dieticians; this has increased awareness among the consumers regarding the availability and benefits of probiotic products. Therefore, a low degree of awareness and limited availability of prebiotic products have restrained the growth of the market as compared to probiotics.
