Functional food and beverages
“The global probiotics market by functional foods and beverages occupied a majority 82% of the market in 2016. The segment is expected to continue its dominance due to the constantly rising demand coupled with the introduction of new products,” says Manjunath Reddy, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on food.
The other factors that the analysts at Technavio expect to fuel market growth include an increase in the demand for functional foods for people above 55 years, growth in the number of health-conscious adults, and rising concern about the health of children. Yogurt, dairy, and fermented products are common foods that contain probiotic bacteria.
The probiotic dietary supplements segment is the fastest-growing sector of the market and is projected to showcase a CAGR of over 8% through 2021. The popular products available in this segment include capsules, tablets, and powders. The demand for these products is driven by the high population of infants and the rising requirements of food supplements, special nutrients, and infant formula. Brands such as Chr. Hansen and Provella are focused on expanding their target audience by introducing supplements primarily for women.
“The demand for probiotic animal feeds are driven by the need for good quality animal produce and maintenance of livestock and pet health. Probiotics also enhance milk production in cows and fasten the growth of chickens,” says Manjunath.
Consumption of probiotics such as LAB, Streptococcus, and Bifidobacterium via animal feed provides an animal with useful enzymes and fatty acids or hydrogen peroxide which prevents the growth of harmful chemicals in their digestive system. The swiftly growing aquaculture industry is another key driver of the market segment.
