Prebiotic ingredients act as multifunctional ingredient

Prebiotic ingredients act as food for probiotic bacteria present in the human and animal gut that eventually modify the colonic microflora, and stimulate the growth of non-pathogenic bacteria, particularly Lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium. According to the FAO, usage of prebiotic ingredients in food products has helped balance the intestinal flora. Prebiotic ingredients include fructooligosaccharides, galactooligosaccharides, inulin, mannanoligosaccharides, and xylooligosaccharides that have multifunctional properties and are associated with various health benefits such as improved gut health, cardiovascular health, bone health, and immunity. Thus, the multifunctional nature of prebiotic ingredients coupled with proven health benefits drive the prebiotic ingredients market growth as multifunctionality will lead to the use of these ingredients in multiple applications and will broaden the market coverage.

High manufacturing and R&D cost

The extraction process of prebiotics from vegetables and plants includes methods such as Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), thin layer chromatography (TLC), high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and spectro-photometry methods, which all involve high R&D investments. Due to high R&D costs involved in the manufacture of prebiotic ingredients as compared to probiotic ingredients, there is a relatively large market visibility for probiotic ingredients, though both prebiotics and probiotics are equally beneficial to human and animal health.

Substantial investments in R&D activities and investments in laboratories, research equipment, and hiring trained professionals that require high investment for the development of prebiotic ingredients. Prebiotic ingredient applications are linked with health benefits which make it challenging for manufacturers to get an adequate return on investments on high initial investments.

Growth in the demand for prebiotic ingredients in China, India, and Brazil

Nutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries, especially the API industry, have been experiencing tremendous growth in Asian region. The growth of the nutraceutical industry directly affects the prebiotic ingredients industry as the consumer preference in recent years is toward consuming dietary supplements and natural products for maintaining a healthy diet. Stated by Sarah Stanely, vice president, business development, Friesland Campina, “Asia Pacific was by far the most active region in prebiotic products for galactooligosaccharides, yielding 57% of new products, versus 38% in EU, and 5% elsewhere. New product development was driven by new companies as well as existing players.”

Prebiotic ingredients find their major application in infant nutrition; in Asia, the number of children affected by stunting under 5 years of age is the highest among South America, Africa, and Oceania. Many companies are investing in R&D for developing prebiotic products for infant nutrition in this region. The untapped markets in this region have wide availability of cheap labor, advanced technology, and less effective regulations regarding the usage of prebiotics as compared to North American and European countries. The leading market players are also expanding their facilities in China, India, and Brazil, considering the future potential demand in these markets.
