Asia Pacific Prebiotics Market To 2028 – Size, Share And Trends Analysis Report –


DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Prebiotics Market in Asia-Pacific” Report has been added Offer.

Asia-Pacific prebiotics market size is expected to reach USD 4.9 billion by 2028. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.6% from 2020 to 2028. Rising gastrointestinal diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome have likely led to concerns about gut health to fuel the growth of the prebiotics market in Asia Pacific.

Consumers have started consuming foods like yogurt, apples, whole grains, and miso that improve digestion by increasing the good bacteria in the gut and reducing constipation. Therefore, the intake of functional ingredients such as carotenoids, prebiotics and probiotics, fatty acids, fiber, vitamins and minerals are expected to increase, which in turn is expected to benefit the market growth.

Prebiotics stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria such as lactobacilli in the gut and improve resistance to pathogens. This effect is induced by eating functional foods containing FOS, GOS with prebiotic function. Rising gut issues among consumers have prompted them to switch to prebiotic-rich foods, which is likely to fuel their demand for prebiotics in the years to come.

Also, since the outbreak of the pandemic, consumers have been gradually choosing products rich in nutrients to maintain optimal health. This reversal is evidenced by increased global demand for nutraceuticals in Q1 and Q2 2020. Rising concerns about immunity should benefit plant-based functional ingredients in the years to come.
