There is a great demand for prebiotic foods and beverages in European and the growth in this sector is expected to continue in the next decade. A wide range of innovative products in the prebiotic foods and beverages sector is the main reason for the positive outlook. The prebiotic supplements and food market is driven by the growing clinical evidence, supporting the effectiveness of probiotics in general health maintenance and disease treatment. The prebiotic therapy is popular in the treatment of lactose intolerance, lipid metabolism, oxalte metabolism, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), ulcerative colitits, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), eczema, allergic rhinitis, infectious diarrhea, necrotizing enterocolitis and helicobacter pylori.
The major factors driving the European Prebiotics Market are growing concern for health, significance of microbiome in promoting gut health and rising awareness regarding the importance of high fiber consumption. However, greater market visibility for probiotics may stand as a threat to this market.
The European Prebiotics market is segmented based on ingredients, functional area, source, application and geography.
The European Prebiotics Market by ingredients is segmented into oligosaccharides, inulin, polydextrose and others. Oligosaccharides accounted for the largest market share in 2018 and is estimated to grow at fastest CAGR until the end of 2025. The oligosaccharides market is further classified into Mannan-Oligosaccharide (MOS), Galacto-Oligosaccharide (GOS) and Fructo-Oligosaccharide (FOS).
Europeanan interest in oligosaccharides has been increasing ever since they were rendered the prebiotic status. The oligosaccharides of various origin like, bacteria, algae, fungi and higher plants have been used extensively both as food ingredients and pharmacological supplements. The non-digestible oligosaccharides have been implicated as dietary fiber, sweetener, weight controlling agent and humectant in confectioneries, bakeries and breweries. Functional oligosaccharides have been found effective in gastrointestinal normal flora proliferation and pathogen suppression, dental caries prevention, enhancement of immunity, facilitation of mineral absorption, source of antioxidant, antibiotic alternative, regulators of blood glucose in diabetics and serum lipids in hyperlipidemic. Apart from these applications, oligosaccharides have found use in drug delivery, cosmetics, animal and fishery feed, agriculture, etc. Keeping in view the importance of the functional oligosaccharides, we present an overview of their natural sources, types, structures, physiological properties. Conventional as well as novel synthesis, purification and analysis methods are summarized. Recent promising developments in this area are presented to facilitate their further exploitation.
By functional area the European Prebiotics Market is segmented into gut health, cardiovascular health, bone health, immunity and weight management. Gut health segment accounted for the largest market share in 2018. Followed by it was cardiovascular health.
Current prebiotic mechanisms for enhanced mineral assimilation and bone health incorporate changes in gut microbiota composition, creation of short-chain unsaturated fatty acids, adjusted intestinal pH, biomarker alteration, and invulnerable framework control. The majority share of accessible information bolster enhanced mineral bioavailability, developing proof proposes interchange microbial roles and the existence of a multifaceted gut– bone flagging pivot. The current situation bolsters prebiotic utilization as a cost-effective and maintainable methodology for enhanced bone health and additionally fracture avoidance. The objective of this audit is to talk about both essential and ongoing exploration in the territory of prebiotics, mineral digestion, and bone wellbeing.
The European Prebiotic Market by source is segmented into roots, vegetables, grains, and others. Cereal grains such as corn, wheat, rice, barley, and oats are potential economic sources to further develop new classes of prebiotics. The grains such as wheat bran is the excellent source of prebiotics. It contains a special type of fiber made of arabinoxylan oligosaccharides (AXOS). AXOS fiber represents about 64–69% of wheat bran's fiber content. There are various other grains like barley and oats that are also a great source of prebiotics. These grains contain beta-glucan. The beta-glucan in barley has also been shown to lower the total and LDL cholesterol and may also help in lowering blood sugar levels. Thus, cereal grains are gaining popularity in European.
The European Prebiotics Market finds major applications into food & beverages, dietary supplements and animal feed. Food & Beverage application accounted for the largest market share in 2018 and followed by it was the Dietary Supplement segment.
The various countries studied in this report include United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and Rest of the European.
The demand for prebiotics in Germany is growing at a faster rate owing to the growing demand for processed food, predominance of various diseases, increasing use of prebiotics in animal feed, and growing demand for nutraceutical. Macroeconomic factors such as growing economy, increasing per capita income, the rapid rate of urbanization, and employment rate driving the global mannan oligosaccharide market. However, factors such as shortage of mannan oligosaccharide and increasing cost of raw material are expected to restrain the mannan oligosaccharide market over the forecast period. High investment costs and product pricing may act as a challenge to new participants in the market in Germany. Increasing R&D with an aim of application development is expected to provide market participants with opportunities over the forecast period. Factors trending the German mannan oligosaccharide market include the merger and acquisition among the mannan oligosaccharide manufacturers and end-use industries, new product launch, and high demand for nutraceutical across the globe.
The major players involved in this market are Cargill, DuPont, Frieslandcampina, Ingredion, Beneo, Samyang Genex, Nexira, Beghin Meiji, Royal Cosun, Yakult Pharmaceuticals, Fonterra and Kerry Group among others.
