This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Prebiotics Market is accounted for $8.2 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $24.6 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 16.9% during the forecast period. Prebiotics are soluble fibers that cannot be digested and help the growth of beneficial bacteria in the large intestine. Prebiotics have a number of health advantages, including improving immune and digestive function and controlling blood sugar and cholesterol levels in people. Asparagus, chicory root, garlic, onion, and other foods are high in prebiotics. Prebiotics have many uses, including improving the texture of food and beverages and giving them a sweeter taste without adding any sugar. Furthermore, prebiotics aid in boosting milk production and enhancing dairy animals' growth.

According to the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB), the demand in India is projected to reach 266.5 million metric tonnes for dairy products by 2030.

Market Dynamics:


Increasing consumption of prebiotics for gut health

The prebiotic market is experiencing revenue growth as a result of rising prebiotic consumption for gut health. Prebiotic ingredients are used by numerous end-use industries to create sugar substitutes and low-calorie foods. Widely used in the food and beverage industry, FOS Inulin, Mannan-Oligosaccharide (MOS), and Galacto-Oligosaccharide (GOS) are gentle on the digestive system, encourage the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut, and enhance gut health. Prebiotics promote the development of beneficial bacteria in the gut by acting as fertilizers. Many fruits and vegetables contain them, especially those that have fiber and resistant starch, which are examples of complex carbohydrates.


Lack of awareness regarding the health benefits

The decline in consumer awareness of the health advantages of prebiotic products is limiting market revenue growth. The food and beverage industry's limited selection of prebiotic products and the general lack of knowledge about the inclusion of prebiotic ingredients in food and beverage products are contributing factors. Additionally, consumers' ignorance of the advantages of prebiotic products and the lack of effective marketing strategies are both limiting market growth.


Growing consumer demand for low sugar and fat foods

Prebiotics and other plant-based oligosaccharides are expected to become more popular as a result of growing consumer demand for food and drink products with lower sugar and fat contents without compromising taste or texture. The market is anticipated to grow even more as obesity rates rise. Demand for prebiotics is also anticipated to increase over the forecast period due to their ability to boost the growth of probiotics and other colon bacteria as well as enhance gastrointestinal and immune system functions.


Excessive dosage of prebiotics

A significant factor impeding the growth of the global prebiotics market is the side effects of taking prebiotics in excess, which include diarrhea, gastroesophageal reflux, and abdominal pain. Another factor that is anticipated to impede this market's growth over the forecast period is fluctuating raw material prices.

Covid-19 Impact

Due to consumers' preference for immune system-boosting supplements, demand for prebiotic supplements increased during COVID-19. Food, drinks, and dairy products are in higher demand during quarantine because they are readily available in all stores. However, the prebiotic's sales have suffered as a result of the logistical networks' disruption.

The food & beverages segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

During the forecast period, the food and beverage segment held the largest share. The significant market share of this sector is primarily attributable to consumers' growing awareness of their health and the rising demand for prebiotic food additives. Additionally, the segment's growth is also being fueled by people's propensity for leading healthy, active lifestyles, rising investments in the development of new products in the food and beverage sector, and awareness of health benefits.

The galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Due to the increasing usage of galactooligosaccharides (GOS), this segment is anticipated to hold significant growth potential in the near future. Furthermore, it has numerous health benefits, including improvement in bone mineralization by stimulating calcium absorption, prevention of colon cancer, growth of bifidobacteria, and replacement of human milk oligosaccharides.

Region with largest share:

The largest market share for prebiotics is expected to be held by Asia-Pacific. One of the primary factors influencing the development of the Asia-Pacific market is the presence of well-known leaders in the region. Due to the area's large population and abundant local milk supply, which are fostering the expansion and consumption of dairy products there, demand is anticipated to rise. Prebiotics are used in the production of dairy products that are sugar-free and have a better textural consistency in nations like India, China, and Japan, which are major producers of milk and milk products. The prebiotics business is expected to grow globally as a result of prebiotics' increasing utility in Asia-Pacific.

Region with highest CAGR:

Due to the rising incidence of dangerous animal diseases like swine flu and porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv), which has fueled demand for animal feed ingredients to prevent dangerous pathogen adhesion in intestinal cells, Europe is predicted to experience the highest growth rate in the global prebiotics market during the forecast period. This is helping to boost market revenue in the region. Additionally, the substitution of prebiotics for breast milk in infant formulas is accelerating market expansion.
