According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Dietary Fiber Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global dietary fiber market reached a value of US$ 7.8 Billion in 2021. Dietary fiber is a kind of complex carbohydrate that is essentially indigestible by the human body. These fibers are widely found in various edible products, including nuts, lentils, grains, cereals, fruits, dried peas and vegetables. A majority of these sources comprise a combination of soluble and insoluble fibers in appropriate amounts that assists in boosting the functions of the digestive system. Regular consumption of these fibers aids in reducing the chances of heart attacks, controlling sugar levels and maintaining an appropriate weight. Owing to these health benefits, consumers across the globe are widely incorporating dietary fibers in their daily diet.
Global Dietary Fiber Market Trends:
The global market is primarily driven by the growing consumer preference toward maintaining a healthy lifestyle. An increase in the prevalence of various lifestyle diseases, such as hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disorders (CVDs), on account of lack of physical activities and shifting dietary preferences, has resulted in the growing health-consciousness among the masses. Consequently, they are now increasingly incorporating fibrous foods into their diets while maintaining a proactive lifestyle, which is creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the rising popularity of vegan food due to its higher nutritional value is contributing to the market growth. Apart from this, enhanced preference for fiber fortification of processed food products is also anticipated to provide a stimulus to the market growth. Several regulatory bodies, such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), are also undertaking initiatives and awareness campaigns to promote proper intake of dietary fibers to reduce the chances of developing disorders related to nutritional deficiencies. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% during 2022-2027.
