Global Prebiotics Market to Reach $8 Billion by 2026

Prebiotics are soluble, non-digestible fibers that play a vital role in supporting growth of helpful bacteria in the large intestine. Research has indicated the positive role of prebiotics on the microbiome, offering benefits in terms of digestive health, immune health and management of cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Examples of foods rich in prebiotic soluble fiber include onions, garlic, Jerusalem artichoke, asparagus, chicory root, and lupini beans. Growth in the global market is driven by myriad health and wellness benefits offered by prebiotics, and increasing consumer awareness on nutrition and health. The rising awareness among individuals regarding the significance of higher fiber consumption and good bacteria in the gut to support a healthy digestive and immune system is expected to benefit demand for prebiotic fibers including pectins, inulins, lignans, oligosaccharides, beta-glucans and resistant starches, among others.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Prebiotics estimated at US$4.5 Billion in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$8 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 9.9% over the analysis period. Inulin, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to record a 8.9% CAGR and reach US$3.3 Billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Galacto-Oligosaccharides (GOS) segment is readjusted to a revised 10.9% CAGR for the next 7-year period. Europe is a major market for inulin worldwide. Favorable regulatory environment that encourages the use of prebiotic ingredients in foods is expected to encourage adoption of the ingredient on a wide scale in the region. In the US, inulin has gained the GRAS status, which is expected to supports its adoption even in the coming years. Galacto-Oligosaccharide (GOS) is also witnessing demand due to the myriad benefits it offers, such as prevention of the risk of colon cancer, supporting calcium absorption, and enhancing the body`s defense system.
