For instance, galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) prebiotics are produced by combining the sugars found in milk that simulate the structure of prebiotics naturally present in breast milk. Prebiotics are added to pre-packaged food & beverages such as yoghurt, cereals, bread, snack bars, and sports drinks. In addition, these are added to dietary supplements or can be taken as a suppliant in the form of pastilles, tablets, or powders. They are also added to animal’s feed such as poultry, fodder, and forage.
Obesity level in human beings is increasing due to consumption of fast food, which contains high sugar and fat content, leading to risk of hypertension, adverse lipid concentrations, and type 2 diabetes. The change in lifestyle, increase in disposable income, and rise in consumer awareness related to health benefits of prebiotics are expected to drive the market growth. Increase in consumption of infant formula, which consist of fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS), owing to rise in number of working mothers globally, is expected to drive the market growth. Rise in use of prebiotics in poultry feed to improve productivity of animals, and ease of incorporation in a wide range of food & beverages are expected to fuel the market growth. However, high R&D costs for prebiotics and larger market visibility of probiotics as compared to prebiotic ingredients are expected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, emerging markets in India, China, and Brazil among other are expected to provide opportunities for market growth.

Prebiotics are carbohydrates that are non-digestible by digestive enzymes and acids, which enhance the growth or activity of beneficial bacteria in human gut. They help to improve the guts barrier function, strengthens the immune system, reduces stomach inflammation, boosts overall digestive health, minimizes the risk of development of diarrhea, increases the absorption of calcium to improve bone density, and lowers the risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Inulin, oligosaccharides, mannan-oligosaccharide (MOS), galacto-oligosaccharide (GOS), fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS), and polydextrose among others are various types of prebiotics ingredients beneficial for human and animal health.
People are trending toward more health-conscious eating habits. The factors that drive the market are increase in consumer awareness related to health benefits of prebiotics; rise in use of prebiotics in poultry feed to improve digestion, performance, and immune system to improve overall productivity of animals; multifunctional nature of prebiotic ingredients; and ease of incorporation in a wide range of foods & beverages. This is expected to boost the market growth from 2017 to 2023.
In 2016, the inulin segment accounted for the highest share in the market, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This is attributed to its easy availability from natural sources such as garlic, bananas, and wheat and ability to enable growth of probiotics within the body, which help the body to fight against chronic diseases, control cholesterol level, and improve overall digestion process. High cost of R&D for the applicability & safety and larger market visibility of probiotics as compared to prebiotic ingredients are expected to hamper the market growth in the future.
