The South Africa probiotics market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 6.11% over the course of the forecast period, from US$208.719 million in 2020 to a total market value of US$316.138 million by 2027.

Live microorganisms known as probiotics improve or restore the gut microbiota, which in turn enhances overall health when ingested. Yogurts, other fermented foods, and probiotic-rich beverages are widely available and provide delicious, nutrient-dense snacks. Probiotics are also found in many cosmetic products. When consumed in appropriate amounts, probiotics have beneficial effects on the body, including improved gut health and reduced intestinal inflammation. Since they improve immune function and halt the progression of diseases, probiotics are crucial for preventative healthcare. A significant portion of the probiotics market in the African region is accounted for by South Africa, one of the most developed countries on the continent.

Growing Health concerns and new developments are anticipated to boost the market

Increased consumer awareness of health and well-being is one factor contributing to the growth of the probiotic dietary supplement industry. Due to probiotics' capacity to enhance immune function, reduce intestinal inflammation, and promote gut health, there has been a surge in consumer demand for them. This is leading medical practitioners to feel more comfortable offering probiotic products to patients, which is anticipated to continue supporting growth in the market for probiotic dietary supplements globally. Additionally, a lot of current research, development and innovation projects have improved the legitimacy of probiotics through consensus among scientists. It is anticipated that the demand for probiotics in South Africa would expand as a result of the entry of innovative products and major companies into the market, as well as rising dietary supplement usage.

Key Developments:

  • May 2022: Kerry, the foremost manufacturer of probiotics and a global leader in taste and nutrition, made an official announcement about the opening of the biggest and most technologically sophisticated flavor manufacturing facility on the African continent. Located in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, the new R650 million (€38 million) factory will provide sustainable nutrition products that will be used all throughout Africa. Kerry's expertise in innovation, solutions portfolio, and sustainability commitments ultimately aim to lessen the environmental and social impacts of the food industry value chain so that consumers can make better, healthier decisions and leave a better world for future generations.
  • October 2020: ProbitecTM, the first probiotic in South Africa to use DuoCap technology, was introduced by Evexia Pharma, a pharmaceutical business situated in Simondium, South Africa. The lower intestine receives the full CFU1 count of probiotic bacteria thanks to Probitec's DuoCapTM technology. Because it significantly increased the efficacy of these products by shielding the active ingredients from stomach acid until they reach the lower intestine, where they are most readily absorbed, dual-cap technology has revolutionized the market for ingestible medicines and supplements around the world. The probiotic strain employed by ProbitecTM, Lactobacillus acidophilus, has been clinically shown to lessen the symptoms of antibiotic side effects, lactose intolerance, diarrhoea, IBS, candida, allergies, and bacterial vaginosis.

Product Offerings:

  • Probiotic Maximum Potency Capsles: It has 260 million CFU of Bifidobacterium lactis and 5.3 billion CFU of Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus sporogenes, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and Lactobacillus sporogenes. Human gastrointestinal tract microorganisms, such as Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus, and is supplemented with the product to restore the normal microbial balance and lessen harmful bacteria. The non-pathogenic yeast strain called Saccharomyces cerevisiae is used to treat and prevent diarrhea. Digestive enzymes help break down pollutants and promote good digestion to improve gastrointestinal health. Regular consumption enhances or restores the microbial equilibrium in human intestines, which enhances the efficiency of the digestive system.
  • NF 048 PROBIOTIC-15 SPRAY: The liquid concentrate PROBIOTIC-15 contains the three main probiotic strain families: lactobacillus, phototropic probiotics (which resemble blue-green algae), and healthy yeasts that don't lead to candidiasis. These helpful bacteria eliminate the troublesome candidiasis. Additionally, PROBIOTIC-15 may be diluted and applied to the skin, hair, vagina, or as an enema treatment. Additionally, it can be used to soak and disinfect produce before pouring the water onto potted plants.
