Global Probiotics Market Thriving: Projected to Grow at a CAGR of 8.0% by 2027

Published | 28 September 2021

Probiotics are microorganisms, such as bacteria and yeast that benefit humans and animals by preserving intestinal microbial balance. Probiotics are in high demand due to the growing consumer awareness concerning digestive health and the increasing demand for high-quality foods and quality animal-based products.

A study recently conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that global probiotics market was worth USD 57.4 Billion in the year 2020. It is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.0%, earning revenue of around USD 97.8 Billion by the end of 2027.  As consumers become aware of the importance of digestive health, as well as the rising demand for high-quality foods and animal-based products, the demand for probiotics will continue to grow. One can easily find it in the form of supplements or components in food and beverages. Probiotics are expected to grow in the near future, but the high cost of research and development for breakthrough strains and international quality standards is likely to hamper growth.

Growth Drivers

Health Benefits

Hectic daily schedules, long working hours, and sedentary lifestyles have affected eating habits as well as food choices, resulting in an increased prevalence of various lifestyle-related conditions such as diabetes, fatty liver disease, and obesity. Because of this, consumption of probiotic foods is of considerable public interest world-wide. Many health benefits have been seen in the probiotics like inulin and pectin as they decline the frequency and duration of diarrhea and help in inflammation and any symptoms of intestinal bowel disorder, this helps in driving the growth of the global probiotics market.

Different mode of consumption

Furthermore, the availability of probiotic supplements in many forms in most supermarkets and pharmacies is also a major contributor to the growth of the global probiotics market. Various forms of probiotics are available on the market, such as capsules or tablets, which can be swallowed. Furthermore, probiotics are also available as a loose powder that can be sprinkled on food or drinks. Drinks have become a popular way to consume probiotics among the masses these days. Consumers who regularly consume probiotics have indicated that the liquid form is easier to consume.


Low awareness among consumers

Many consumers don't know how to find and buy these probiotic foods, constraining the global probiotic market's growth. A large number of the population are still not aware of its existence. The lack of proper knowledge about probiotics and their beneficial effects ultimately leads to the consumption or intake of probiotics of the wrong type, which may not have any positive effects. Increasing demand for probiotics will occur as and when the average person becomes aware of their benefits.
