According to Mayo Clinic dietary fibre, often known as roughage or bulk, refers to plant foods that the body cannot digest or absorb. Fibre, unlike other meal components such as lipids, proteins, and carbs, is not digested by your body, instead, it goes through your stomach, small intestine, and colon largely intact before exiting your body. Dietary fibres vary in chemical composition and may be classified broadly based on their solubility, viscosity, and fermentability. Dietary fibre is found in plant-based foods such as legumes, hemp, whole grains, chicory root, cereals, vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts or seeds.

A diet high in fibre consumption is typically connected with improved health and a decreased risk of numerous illnesses and disorders such as constipation, cardiovascular disease and obesity.  Fibre-rich foods can also help a person maintain a healthy weight and lessen their risk of diabetes and some forms of cancer. Therefore, various health advantages associated with the consumption of dietary fibre are driving the growth of the global market during the projection period. According to the Health and Food Survey conducted by the International Food Information Council in 2022 found that 24 per cent of respondents believe that fibre is an important part of a healthy diet. 53 per cent of respondents try to consume fibre in their daily meals. 92 per cent of consumers get their daily fibre intake via food while 25 per cent of respondents depend on dietary supplements.

However, complex laws, restrictions, possible side effects, high & volatile prices of raw materials and a lack of knowledge obstruct the growth of the global market for dietary fibre during the analysis period. Moreover, a continuous product launched by key market players with high fibre content is providing new opportunities to market participants during the forecast period.

During the anticipation period, the health benefits associated with fibre-rich food will support the growth of the global dietary fibre market.

A diet rich in fibre is known to cure constipation, maintain a healthy weight, and reduce your risk of diabetes, heart disease, and some forms of cancer. Consumption of fibre can lead to healthy bowel movement, and reduce the incidence of gastrointestinal disorders. It also maintains blood sugar levels and cholesterol levels in the body thus reducing the occurrence of fatal cardiovascular disease. According to the Health and Food survey conducted by the IFIC shows that 33 per cent of the population take dietary fibre supplements to improve their digestive and gut health. Digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, and acid reflux are becoming increasingly common. This has led to a growing demand for dietary fibre supplements that can help to alleviate symptoms and improve overall digestive health. According to a report by the UK's National Health Service in 2019, the prevalence of digestive disorders such as IBS and IBD is increasing in the UK, with an estimated 10-20 per cent of the population affected by IBS and around 1 per cent affected by IBD. This trend is likely to contribute to the growing demand for dietary fibre supplements that can help to alleviate symptoms and improve overall digestive health.

According to Mayo Clinic, women should consume at least 21 to 25 grammes of fibre per day, while males should consume 30 to 38 grammes per day. Various policies and initiatives have also been taken up by regulatory bodies to increase the intake of dietary fibre among consumers. For instance, in September 2021, The Food and Drink Federation launched a new programme called Action on Fibre to assist consumers in increasing their fibre consumption. Action on Fibre is a forward-thinking industry effort endorsed by numerous FDF members and well-known businesses. As part of this, food and beverage firms have agreed to a variety of undertakings, ranging from emphasising greater fibre alternatives on product packaging to developing new fibre-rich products.

Various key FMCG brands have also started to launch fibre-rich products to capitalise on the growing trend of high fibre consumption. For instance, Japanese fermented milk giant Yakult in April 2023, a new 'Plus' variation that combines fibre and vitamin C to boost immunity and digestive health.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to hold a significant share of the global dietary fibre market during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific region is anticipated to hold a significant market share in dietary fibre. This region will experience rapid expansion throughout the projection period as a result of expanding consumer health consciousness, greater urbanisation, and rising disposable income. Dietary fibre supplements and products are in high demand in rising markets such as India and China due to the rising prevalence of digestive disorders. This region's market is expanding as a result of the presence of a well-established food & beverage industry. This region's market is expanding due to reasons such as changing eating habits and rising demand for healthy, natural and fibre-rich products and drinks. In addition, the prevalence of key market players such as Cargill Incorporated, Archer Daniels Midland Company, Kerry Inc., Ingredion Incorporated, and Tate & Lyle is also spurring the growth of dietary fibre in this region. Prime markets in the Asia Pacific region are India, China, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Taiwan and Indonesia.

Market Key Developments

  • In November 2022, Omya, a Swiss industrial mineral company, launched a new line of powdered fibre supplements in the hopes of closing the fibre gap, as most consumers do not eat enough dietary fibre on a daily basis. Omya's micronized powders also allow for the labelling of finished products with a health or nutrition claim.  They are available in a variety of flavours and particle densities.
  • In July 2022, Ingredion expanded its product line with two new fruit-based dietary fibres, Fibertex CF 502 and Fibertex CF 102. The Fibertex CF 502 and Fibertex CF 102 are reported to be the first in a series of citrus-based dietary fibre texturising capabilities to meet the expanding nutrition, health, and wellness trend, as well as the increased desire for clean labelling. The fibres, which are generated from byproducts, can improve nutritional profiles and label appeal in a variety of applications.
  • In October 2022, American-based bioactive discovery company Brightseed launched Brightseed Bio 01TM, a unique dietary hemp fibre to promote gut health developed for use in food and drinks. Brightseed Bio 01TM is the only dietary fibre on the market that contains two bioactive chemicals that have been established in preclinical tests to improve intestinal barrier integrity. It is derived from recycled hemp hulls and prepared to optimise bioactive content.
