Prebiotics are carbohydrates that help the growth and operation of good bacteria in the human gut by not being broken down by digestive enzymes and acids. They strengthen the immune system, enhance gastrointestinal health, lower stomach inflammation, lessen the likelihood of diarrhoea, promote calcium absorption and bone density, and lessen risk factors for cardiovascular disease. More than 1,300 foods and drinks include prebiotic compounds, according to studies. Manufacturers in several end-use industries employ these to produce low-calorie goods that stimulate the growth of prebiotic components.

As demand for healthy diets that include prebiotic foods rises, the market for prebiotic ingredients is anticipated to expand. The market for prebiotic compounds is also anticipated to be significantly impacted by the rising worldwide demand for dairy products.

Consumers are converting to insulin as a healthier alternative to sugar and fats due to rising diabetes concerns in both developed and developing nations. To increase the nutritional value of meals and hence the health of their populations, governments throughout the world are putting more of an emphasis on this. The cause is being advanced by food fortification, which is increasing the demand for prebiotic compounds. Growing consumer awareness of the advantages of prebiotics to enhance health and increasing attempts to improve digestive health, attain hormonal balance, and reduce incidences of cardiovascular illnesses are factors driving the market growth.

Increasing consumer demand for convenience food

convenience foods and confectionary products are a key elements promoting the expansion of this application category. Food augmentation and nutritional improvement are quite popular since they help reduce the prevalence of dietary deficiencies.

Growing demand for gut health improvement will accelerate market expansion.

As the consumer’s awareness of gut health increases, the prebiotic components are becoming more popular. According to the International Food Information Council, 28% of adults listed digestive health as one of the top benefits of food/beverage products, and 2/3 of consumers aged 50 and over said that digestive health is extremely important. These statistics have given prebiotic ingredients a boost.

Furthermore, major firms are aggressively promoting prebiotic supplements since maintaining a healthy gut is becoming more and more significant to consumers.

Growing demand for plant-based food products will affect the market for prebiotic additives.

Prebiotics are organic or synthetic, indigestible (non-)carbohydrate compounds that encourage the growth of gut microbial populations. The beneficial bacteria in the large intestine use undigested fructooligosaccharides to make short-chain fatty acids for their development. Many foods, including oats, almonds, artichokes, barley, chia seeds, chicory, dandelion greens, flaxseeds, and garlic, are being researched and used as functional foods although many foods are already acknowledged to have prebiotic qualities. Given the advantages of this prebiotics in the production of metabolites, gut microbiota modulation, and the treatment of various diseases like necrotizing enterocolitis, diabetes, allergies, and metabolic disorders, more and more attention is being paid to their uses in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Some of these food products are taken as supplements.

Therefore, the demand for plant-based products in influencing the growth of prebiotic ingredients products.

Asia Pacific is projected to be the prominent market shareholder in the prebiotic ingredients market and is anticipated to continue throughout the forecast period.

The fastest CAGR is projected for the Asia Pacific regional market. Countries with large populations and expanding food and beverage sectors, including Japan, China, and India, are the main drivers of product demand. Moreover, the expansion of the regional market is being aided by the rising consumption of dairy products in Asian nations.

It is also anticipated that rising dairy product consumption would accelerate market expansion in this nation. Also, the aging population in the nation and rising consumer awareness will assist the market's expansion. The dairy sector in Australia is developing and making adjustments in response to changes in the global market, which is anticipated to increase product demand. The regional market is anticipated to be driven by product diversity and its expanding significance in the food and beverage industry. North America is anticipated to see consistent growth.

Market Key Developments

  • In January 2022, Lynside® Immunity Prebiotic was introduced by Gnosis by Lesaffre, an Italian manufacturer of prebiotic compounds. This product stimulates fundamental bacterial groups that utilize saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast cell walls to produce a novel yeast-based prebiotic that can be digested by a particular bacterial group in the gut and result in the formation of specific short-chain fatty acids because of its complex carbohydrate content.
  • In November 2022, The Kellogg Corporation (U.S.) released a new cereal that includes prebiotics and probiotics to improve digestion and support the gut.
