The global probiotic ingredients market was valued at USD 268 million in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 402 million by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 8.5 percent from 2018 to 2023. The market is driven by factors such as the health benefits associated with probiotic-fortified foods, the increasing popularity of probiotic dietary supplements, participation of government bodies in the R&D of probiotics, and increasing global demand for superior-quality feed products. Regulations on the maximum quantity of probiotics that can be added to the feed, processing methods, labeling, packaging, and storage conditions are projected to inhibit the growth of the probiotics market for feed.
By form, the liquid segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in the global probiotic ingredients market between 2018 and 2023.
Based on form, the probiotic ingredients market is segmented into dry and liquid.The liquid segment records the highest CAGR as it is relatively cheap in terms of storage and transportation.
Also, the dry form utilizes methods of freeze-drying and freezing, which despite being efficient, led to higher transportation and energy consumption costs. Hence, manufacturers are focusing on experimenting with the liquid forms of probiotic ingredients for developing more equitable solutions.
By application, the pharmaceutical segment is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period.
The pharmaceutical segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR, as probiotic strains have multiple health benefits and are gaining commercial acceptance among manufacturers, pharmaceutical & drug developers, and end consumers.Probiotic strains are proven to treat and help to prevent several gastrointestinal diseases such as traveler’s diarrhea, antibiotic-associated diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease, lactose intolerance, irritable bowel syndrome, vaginal infections, rheumatoid arthritis, liver cirrhosis, and immune enhancement.
Hence, there is a surge in demand for probiotic ingredients in the pharmaceuticals segment.
North America is projected to be the fastest-growing region in the probiotic ingredients market, due to an increase in the demand for supplements and rise in the consumption of probiotic dairy products.
The demand for probiotic-formulated food products in North America has increased, with the growing number of product launches at the consumer level.In the dairy sector, the yogurt segment is projected to account for the largest segment with consumers also recognizing fermented products containing live microorganisms.
In the US, more than half of the yogurt sold is formulated with probiotics.Factors influencing probiotic yogurt consumption include the development of new flavored yogurt by manufacturers, convenient one-shot packaging, and low prices.
Thus, there is a strong demand for various bacterial as well as yeast strains from probiotic product manufacturers in this region.
