China prebiotics market size, by product, 2018 - 2028 (USD Million)

The demand for inulin in China is expected to witness steady growth on account of ease of incorporation in the food & beverage industry. Inulin is used in dairy product formulations such as yogurts, cheese, and ice creams. Dairy industry growth is expected to be a key driver for the inulin market over the next few years. The technological progress in the field of functional ingredients involves heavy spending on research & development. The research & development costs can be in the form of clinical trials or research on ingredients that adhere to the food regulations in countries.

Although such factors are beneficial for well-established market players, small- and medium-sized companies find it challenging to invest heavily in R&D activities as such costs would have a bearing on the final price of functional ingredients thus posing a challenge for the market. The outbreak of animal diseases in the past has had a negative impact on the animal feed industry, thereby resulting in reduced demand for animal feed ingredients such as prebiotics. For instance, the outbreak of H5N1 bird flu severely disrupted the entire poultry industry in India and led to a significant decline in the consumption of poultry in the country.

The importance of nutritional and fortified food products rose due to the COVID-19 outbreak; thus, food manufacturers are likely to incorporate ingredients such as prebiotics into their products to increase their nutritional value in order to attract consumers. Consumers have been consuming products with functional ingredients as part of preventive health, in turn benefiting the probiotics market as well.
