ALBANY, New York, January 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Transparency Market Research announces the release of the latest report on the global probiotics market. The study, titled "Probiotic Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth and Forecast 2014-2020", indicates that registering a strong CAGR of 7.40% from 2014 to 2020, the global market for probiotics is poised to grow from US$62.6 billion in 2014 to US$96 billion in 2020.

Identifying the forces contributing toward the growth of the probiotics market, the report suggests that rising consumption of functional foods, growing awareness regarding the improvement of gut health, and efficiency of probiotic bacteria are responsible for the development of the global probiotics market. In addition, increasing awareness about the benefits of probiotics, rising demand from emerging economies, ban on the use of antibiotics in animal feed, and the application of probiotics in newer areas are likely to boost the global probiotics market over the next five years. However, absence of proper standardization in the probiotics industry has proved to be a hindrance to growth.
