The global prebiotic ingredient market size was valued at USD 6.26 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 15.26 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 10.41% from 2022 to 2030.
Carbohydrates that allow beneficial bacteria grow or function more effectively in the human stomach are known as prebiotics. These carbohydrates are resistant to digestion by digestive enzymes and acids. They help to improve the function of the gut barrier, the strength of the immune system, the reduction of inflammation in the stomach, the improvement of overall digestive health, and the reduction of the risk of diarrhoea. Additionally, they help to increase calcium absorption, which promotes bone density and reduces risk factors for cardiovascular disease. The increasing consumer knowledge of the health benefits of prebiotics as well as the increased utilisation of prebiotics in the animal feed sector to boost digestion and the immune system are the primary factors driving the prebiotics market. The fact that prebiotic substances can be used for a variety of purposes and the ease with which they can be incorporated into a wide range of foods and beverages are both factors that are expected to further boost the overall market developments of the prebiotics ingredients market during the period 2022-2030.
