The beta-glucan market is projected to grow from USD 501 Million in 2023 to USD 734 Million by 2028, at a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period. The market is anticipated to grow due to increasing demand for use of natural additives in the food and beverage products, growing consumption of healthy diets with high fiber, rising surge in acceptance for beta-glucan for its several health-benefits. Such factors have driven the need to develop and deploy new products for beta-glucan.

The segment grain & cereal is expected to account for the largest share in 2023.
Cereals and grains are known for their relatively high beta-glucan content compared to other food sources. For example, oats and barley contain particularly high levels of beta-glucan, with oats being one of the richest dietary sources. The beta-glucans in cereals and grains are typically of the mixed-linkage type, which has been shown to have favorable health effects, such as immune-modulating and cholesterol-lowering properties. The high beta-glucan content of cereals and grains makes them a desirable source for extracting this beneficial compound.

The food and beverage segment is projected to dominate the market in the application segment during the forecast period.
Based on the application segment, the food and beverage segment is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period. The rising awareness among the consumers for healthy diets, use of beta-glucan in bakery, chewing gums, milk and protein beverages, instant drinks and many others has led to the adoption of beta-glucan.
