The analysts forecast the Global Probiotics market to grow at a CAGR of 7.23 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing awareness about probiotic products. The Global Probiotics market has also been witnessing the increase in R&D activities. However, government regulation could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The report, the Global Probiotics Market 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the APAC region, Western Europe, Latin America, North America, Eastern Europe, and the MEA region; it also covers the Global Probiotics market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
R&D activities are critical for vendors in the Global Probiotic Products market as they enable them to develop new products and technologies for the production of probiotic products. An increase in R&D activities has led to an increase in applications of new strains of probiotics and the demand for probiotic products. Ireland is one of the leading countries that pursues research in probiotics. Also, vendors such as Danone and Yakult heavily invest in R&D activities for probiotics. These two vendors together established the Global Probiotics Council in 2004 to create awareness, develop new products, and collaborate with government bodies with regard to probiotics. Thus, the increase in R&D activities is expected to open up new avenues for the growth of the Global Probiotic Products market during the forecast period.
According to the report, one of the major drivers in the market is the increasing awareness about probiotic products among consumers across the world. Awareness about the benefits provided by probiotics to humans and animals is increasing, in turn creating a favorable demand for probiotic products.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges hindering the growth of the market is the increasing government regulations regarding production, distribution, and marketing of probiotic products in many countries such as the US.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
