The global dietary fiber market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. Dietary fibers, or roughage, are indigestible complex carbohydrates that are present in various food products, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, lentils and grains. There are primarily two kinds of dietary fibers, soluble and non-soluble, which aid in maintaining the proper functioning of the digestive system. The soluble fibers give a feeling of satiety, facilitate weight loss and control cholesterol and blood sugar levels in the body. On the other hand, insoluble fibers absorb water to normalize bowel movements and ensure the proper functioning of the stomach and intestines. They also aid in preventing duodenal ulcers, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), hemorrhoids and constipation.
The increasing consumer inclination towards proactive healthcare and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is one of the key factors driving the market growth. Furthermore, the growing prevalence of chronic lifestyle disorders, such as cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), hypertension, diabetes and gastrointestinal disorders, is also providing a boost to the market growth. Consumers are becoming aware of the benefits of incorporating fibers in their daily diets through foods, beverages, nutritional supplements and pharmaceuticals. This is also leading to the growing adoption of fiber-rich vegetarian and vegan foods as an alternative to meat and meat-based products across the globe. Additionally, extensive research and development (R&D) activities are being conducted to use waste products, such as peanut skins and hulls, as raw materials to enhance the overall efficiency of dietary fibers. Other factors, including the availability of a wide variety of fortified food products and rising consumer expenditure on food and nutrition, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, the global dietary fiber market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 8% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
