Analyst Review

Growing consumer awareness about digestive health has forced manufacturers to research organisms that offer digestive benefits. The increasing use of probiotic yeast in dietary supplements is increasing demand in the food industry. Expanded knowledge of the gut microbiota and its role in improving immunity and overall health is likely to garner the growth of the global probiotic yeast market.

Another major driver of global demand for products based on probiotic yeast is the increase of investment by major market players in R&D to develop profitable strains of bacteria. The delivery system used to deliver probiotics to the human body has been improved. They are designed to be compatible with these delivery systems so that more probiotics can reach body parts such as the intestines, thereby increasing their effectiveness. The companies have developed and defined some unique strains for specific applications. These strains meet the different requirements of different diseases. Lactobacillus fermentum VRI003 PCC and Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001 strains are used to treat eczema. Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus reuteri RC14 and Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR1 can effectively treat vaginal infections. Addition to that, probiotic yeast to food supplements and animal feed will shorten their shelf life. The uncontrolled growth of these yeast strains can also alter the sensory parameters of food supplements and reduce their palatability.

However, increasing research and innovation to develop advanced packaging solutions to improve the shelf life of additives is expected to alleviate the difficulties for manufacturers.

Key players in the market have adopted product launch, continuous innovation, and acquisition as their key developmental strategies to cater to the rising demands for probiotic supplements. Driven by increased product development and innovation in the nutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries, North America is expected to experience strong growth. The increasing awareness of digestive and intestinal health has supported the growth of the European market. The class population is increasing, and consumption trends are also developing. The growing demand for nutritional supplements by the elderly, pregnant women and children has promoted the development of the nutrition and health products industry. Increasing R&D to explore the healthier functions of probiotic yeast is expected to drive market growth in the next few years.
