The growth of this market is mainly attributed to the growing consumer awareness regarding the health benefits of probiotics, increasing use of probiotics as an alternative to antibiotics, and growing research programs on probiotics for new applications. Moreover, the growing use of probiotics for children and e-commerce growth is expected to create lucrative opportunities for players operating in this market. However, complex regulations related to probiotics are expected to hinder the growth of this market to some extent.
The study offers a comprehensive analysis of the probiotics market with respect to strain, product type, form, sales channel, end user, and geography. The probiotics market is mainly segmented by strain (bacteria and yeast strain products), product type (functional food & beverages, medical & dietary supplements, and animal feed), form (liquid and dry), sales channel (offline and online sales), end user (humans and animals), and geography. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyses the market at a country level.
Based on strain, the yeast strain products segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing use of yeast strain in animal feed & functional food and the rising use of probiotics as an alternative to antibiotics are the major drivers for the growth of this segment. Besides, increasing demand for yeast strain-based medicines due to proven positive results for reducing the risk of chronic diseases is expected to boost its demand in the forecast period.
Based on product type, the functional food & beverages segment is expected to command the largest share of the overall probiotics market in 2020. The large share of this market is mainly attributed to the rising health and wellness trends; growing consumer interest for functional food, particularly probiotics that can support digestive health; and the growing application of probiotics in yogurt.
Based on form, the dry form segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Dry probiotics offer advantages, such as better handling & transport, ease of use, affordability, and the ability to avoid costly formulation mistakes.
Based on sales channel, the probiotics market is segmented into offline and online sales. The offline sales segment is expected to command the largest share of the overall probiotics market in 2020. The large share of this segment is mainly attributed to the rising interest in healthy eating habits, growing number of pharmacies, and the expanding probiotics supplements industry.
Based on end user, the animals segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The animal probiotics sector has witnessed significant growth due to the growing pressure regarding reducing the use of antibiotics in feed. Further, the growing awareness among pet owners, cattle farmers, and hobbyists regarding the advantages of probiotics for animal health offer significant opportunities for players operating in the animal probiotics market.
Geographically, Asia-Pacific is expected to command the major share of the overall probiotics market in 2020. The leading position of the region is primarily attributed to the increased consumer awareness regarding digestive health, immunity, and overall wellness; growing number of diabetics and overweight people; increasing demand for non-dairy probiotics food; the presence of key players in the digestive health products marketspace; and rising innovations in probiotics formulations.
