Probiotic Market Share, by Application, 2013 ($Million)

Probiotic Market

Source: MarketsandMarkets Analysis

The global probiotic products market was estimated at $26,125.9 million in 2012. Over 500 probiotic F&B products have been introduced in the past decade. These products have received unpredictable levels of success, mostly in congruence with their overall health benefits.

The probiotics market is a rewarding market from the perspective of functional food suppliers and manufacturers. Product innovations are likely to play a key role in increasing the share of the market players. The leading developers and suppliers of probiotic strains include Nebraska Cultures (U.S.), Yakult Honsha (Japan), and Chr. Hansen (Denmark). The products of these companies are used by FMCG companies such as Nestle and Attune. Asia-Pacific is dominating the market owing mainly to the Japanese market where the concept of probiotic was introduced to the world. Moreover, high awareness of the benefits of probiotic yoghurts has helped in increasing the penetration of the market in Asia-Pacific and European nations. The North American probiotics market is also growing rapidly due to the general affinity of the U.S. population towards the probiotic dietary supplements and the concept of preventive healthcare.

This report highlights the key probiotic products such as functional F&B, dietary supplements, specialty nutrients, and animal feed products as well as the major application areas such as regular consumption, probiotic therapy, and disease prevention.
