Prebiotics Ingredients Market size is forecast to reach $9.4 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period 2021-2026. Nutraceutical products are gaining popularity across the world and are increasingly becoming a part of people's everyday diets. The major cause for this rise in popularity is a shift in consumer behavior and increased awareness. Increased use of high-fiber functional foods and prebiotics by the food and beverage industry has been linked to health benefits such as improved digestion, less stress, improved hormonal balance, and a reduction in cardiovascular disease. As a result of these advantages, consumer awareness is elevated, resulting in market expansion. Demand for inulin and FOS as functional components is expected to rise owing to the growing importance of nutraceuticals as a result of increased health awareness, consumer trends toward natural ingredients, and regulatory assistance targeted at boosting the inclusion of functional ingredients. Rising demand for supplements, as well as improved consumer knowledge of the health benefits of fibre, are expected to fuel market expansion over the next few years. The market is projected to be driven by increased cultivation and harvesting of prebiotic natural herbs in Europe. Prebiotic has a wide variety of uses, including texture enhancement and the ability to sweeten meals without adding sugar. Over the projected period, rising concerns about sugar illnesses are likely to spur product development. Important prebiotic components such as inulin and fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS) are also in high demand in low-calorie sweetening products. Over the forecasted term, this will help to boost the overall prebiotics sector's growth. Prebiotic manufacturers will benefit from rising demand for vital components in the diet and rising health consciousness among clients across the world. Prebiotics are increasingly being used to treat gastrointestinal illnesses such as Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and gastroesophageal reflux disease, which would help the market grow.

Prebiotics are carbohydrates that are not digested by digestive enzymes or acids and so promote the development or activity of beneficial bacteria in the human stomach. They aid in the improvement of the gut's barrier function, the strengthening of the immune system, the reduction of stomach inflammation, the improvement of overall digestive health, the prevention of diarrhea, the absorption of calcium to improve bone density, and the reduction of risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Prebiotics components that are helpful to human and animal health include inulin, oligosaccharides, mannan-oligosaccharide (MOS), galacto-oligosaccharide (GOS), fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS), and polydextrose. Prebiotic ingredients aid in the growth of beneficial bacteria and the synthesis of essential vitamins. Short-chain fatty acids such as butyrate, acetate, and propionate are among the nutrients included in Prebiotics. It enters the circulation and improves metabolic health. Prebiotic ingredients include Inulin, Resistant Starch, Monosaccharides, Disaccharides, Nucleotide-Activated Saccharides, Soy Oligosaccharides, Fructooligosaccharides (FOSs), Mannan-Oligosaccharide (MOS), Galactooligosaccharides (GOSs), Xylooligosaccharides (GOSs), Pyrodextrin, Isomalt. Fructooligosaccharide (FOS), a kind of oligosaccharide, is a sweet, non-digestible water-soluble dietary fiber that is commonly used as a sweetener. It has a wide range of uses in the food sector as a sugar substitute, particularly in baking and confectionery.

The market for probiotic ingredients was dominated by the Asia Pacific region. The strong demand for functional foods and dairy products, the presence of significant companies in these areas, and knowledge of the advantages of utilizing probiotics are all factors that impact these market shares. China, India, Japan, and Australia are all important markets in the Asia Pacific region. The rapid economic expansion in this region is due to the need for high-quality food, beverage, and feed, particularly in China, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, and South Korea, which drives demand for Prebiotic Ingredients.

Prebiotics Ingredients Market Segment Analysis-Drivers

Rising Demand for Mannan-Oligosaccharides from the Nutraceutical Industry Encourages the Growth of the Prebiotics Ingredients Market:

Mannan-oligosaccharides' potential to bind mycotoxins and be phosphorylated to improve pathogen binding capacity is expected to increase their demand in the nutraceutical sector. The ability of mannan-oligosaccharides to inhibit pathogen colonization and boost gut immunity by limiting the breakdown of digestive enzymes could help to fuel industry growth. Mannan-oligosaccharides have been shown to promote the development of beneficial bacteria such as lactobacillus spp. and bifidobacteria while inhibiting the proliferation of gram-negative bacteria, suggesting that they have a future in the nutraceutical industry.

Prebiotics demand from animal feed application is expected to rise as the prevalence of livestock illnesses rises:

The numerous advantages of prebiotics on animal health, such as enhanced animal growth rate and milk and egg output, are expected to drive up demand for prebiotics in animal feed. Furthermore, the prohibition on the use of antibiotics as growth promoters is directing livestock owners' attention to plant-based growth promoters for animal nutrition, which is expected to drive demand for prebiotics. Increased cases of digestive illnesses in cattle, such as enteric infections and acidosis, should further agitate the business landscape. Prebiotics promote the development of beneficial bacteria and protect animals against disease-causing bacteria. The expansion of the feed additives sector, as well as increased animal rearing operations, could boost market size. In 2020, the prebiotics market from animal feed application was worth about 90 metric tons. The rising importance of animal proteins, as well as the fortification of animal feed with bacteria that help animals' intestinal health, is projected to drive up demand for prebiotics in animal feed. The increased demand for prebiotics in animal feeds is driving the demand for mannan-oligosaccharide (MOS) components. Raised disease incidence in the United States, such as BSE, PEDv, and swine flu, has increased the necessity of animal feed components for guaranteeing high-quality feed among producers.
