The prebiotics market by ingredients is dominated by naturally derived ingredients such as fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), inulin, mannan oligosaccharides (MOS), and others. Synthetically derived ingredients are as yet few in number and they are generally termed as galacto oligosaccharides (GOS). These ingredients are incorporated into food and dietary supplements that are then consumed by human beings and animals, thus helping to enhance their gut health. These markets have been segmented based on volumes and revenues and have been analyzed for market stability and growth.
Major application sectors include food and beverages, dietary supplements and animal feed. Dairy products, cereals, baked food, fermented meat, dry food and other such market segments have been analyzed in the food and beverages application segment. Dietary supplements have found popularity only in the past ten years or so and are subdivided into food supplements, nutritional supplements, specialty nutrients and infant formulae. Animal feed has not yet been fully developed and explored and hence the main focus of manufacturers in animal feed is in research and development of sustainable products. Prebiotic ingredient demand for animal feed is expected to reach USD 429.
