Further key findings from the report suggest-

  • On the basis of application, food and beverages holds the largest share in the global market. Due to an increasing consumer demand for health-based and nutritionally enhanced foods, the market is flourishing in this application segment.
  • Animal feed is also an important application segment for the global market. Manufacturers are readily focusing on solutions to improve the intestinal health of animals for healthier upbringing of both farm animals and pets.
  • Food fortification is an important driver behind the industry growth of the industry. Nutritional enhancement of food is a part of public health policy in many places to lower the cases of dietary deficiencies in the population.
  • On the basis of source, Roots holds the largest share in the industry. It is because of the ease and large volume of extraction possible that manufacturers prefer this source the most.
  • Grain-based sources form the second largest source base for the market due to its high availability of grains in developed and developing economies. Also, the nutritional content of grains is high and makes them a suitable source for manufacture of prebiotic substances.
  • Bone mass of an adult is dependent on supply as well as bioavailability of calcium. In either cases of deficiency osteoporosis is prone to occur and in addition to this it is highly associated with increasing age and postmenopausal conditions. Presently, osteoporosis treatment and prevention is restricted to increasing calcium uptake, or by stimulating bone formation. Even though, a lot of studies have been carried out on calcium metabolism using rats, results depicted that prebiotics play a role in escalating the bioavailability of calcium.
  • Despite the favorable growth scenario, there are hurdles for industry to grow such as heavy production costs and the low awareness among the differences in probiotic and prebiotic food substances.
  • One of the major food sources for prebiotics and other colonic bacteria are dietary complex carbohydrates, such as oligosaccharides and polysaccharides that can escape hydrolysis and digestion in the stomach and small intestine. These are called no digestible oligosaccharides, or simply NDO
  • In recent years, consumer interest in the relation between diet and health has increased the demand for correct information on prebiotics and has become a growing segment in the industry. This growth has been enhanced by technological innovations, development of new products, and the increasing number of health-conscious consumers interested in products that improve life quality.
  • Prebiotics are manufactured by enzymatic processes; for example, NDO can be enzymatically prepared by connecting carbohydrate monomers to generate “longer” oligosaccharides, or they can be ready by enzymatic decomposition of polysaccharides into smaller oligosaccharides.
  • By region, Europe holds the largest share in the industry. Manufacturers in the region are readily venturing into new product areas, thereby increasing the applicability of these non-digestible nutrition enhancing food substances.
  • Asia Pacific is expected to register the highest CAGR in the industry. The increasing consumer awareness about healthy food consumption and the increasing consumer spending on nutritionally enhanced products is driving industry growth.
  • The industry has witnessed various acquisitions by key players, such as In December 2018, Friesland Campina acquired shares in Best Cheese Corporation, which is manufacturing and suppliers of specialty cheeses in the United States.
