Country-Wise Analysis

Demand Scenario of Prebiotic Ingredients in China

The global functional food market has spread from its traditional geographical markets of Europe and North America and entered developing countries such as China. The country has already been penetrated by probiotics that have found popularity with the majority of the consumers. Thus, prebiotic fortified products potentially have a lucrative market in China.

To undercut the competition prebiotic manufacturers are offering prebiotic enriched products at affordable prices and thereby pulling existing probiotic consumers into the prebiotic market.

Although marketing standardization and imparting awareness are very important strategies, creating competition with affordable pricing works as the tipping point for consumers to switch from probiotics to prebiotic functional food thus inferring an increase in product sales in the country by 2032 end.

Germany Dominating the European Prebiotic Ingredients Market

Germany is anticipated to have a significant market for prebiotic ingredients owing to the increased application of the product in the food and beverage industry of the country. For instance, inulin, a type of prebiotic ingredient is extensively used in the food processing sector of the country as a healthy alternative for sugar and fat.

Moreover, concern among consumers due to rising cases of diabetes and obesity has further encouraged manufacturers of the German confectionery industry to use prebiotic ingredients as emulsifiers which have subsequently led to an increase in demand for the product in the country.

Demand for Plant-Based Ingredients for Functional Food & Beverage to Impact Global Prebiotic Ingredients Market

As consumers are opting for plant-based and natural products, manufacturers in various industries are trying to incorporate natural ingredients into their products.

The primary source of prebiotic ingredients is natural dietary fiber. The increase in awareness about the side effects of the antibiotics and other chemicals present in processed food products, increase the consumption of prebiotic fibers. These are anticipated to be some of the drivers for the increase in the demand for plant-based products.

Thus, the increasing inclination towards the use of plant-based products in the F&B industry is estimated to have a positive influence on the prebiotics market.

Increased Demand for Mannan- oligosaccharide based Prebiotic Ingredients

Gut micro flora converts various prebiotic ingredients into Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs) which nourishes the cells in the colon and provide many health benefits. Mannan-oligosaccharides (MOS) is a special prebiotic ingredient that interferes with the binding and colon formation of pathogens. Thus it acts as a blocking agent in the intestinal area.

Moreover, MOS is also used in poultry feed as an alternative to antibiotics, especially in Europe, where antibiotics are banned in animal feed. Poultry feed with MOS as an additive has been shown to increase the yield and performance of poultry.

Thus, owing to the aforementioned reasons MOS is set to witness an increase in demand over the forecast period.
