Impact of COVID-19 on the Europe Probiotic Supplements Market

Market Dynamics:

Key Driver: Growing Demand for Functional Food & Beverages to Escalate the Market Growth

In the region, due to the high prevalence of obesity, lactose intolerance, and the aging population, the demand for functional foods & beverages has experienced considerable growth during the historical years. In addition, the sales through supermarkets & hypermarkets are primarily augmenting the overall sales of probiotics in the regional countries such as Russia, Germany, and Spain, among others. Furthermore, the rising consumer awareness about the nutritional benefits of probiotic supplements, particularly among lactose intolerance consumers, is adding to the strong market growth.

Moreover, retailers like Sainsbury's are offering probiotic supplements under their private labeled tags to meet the growing demand for probiotic supplements among consumers in the area as a result of the region's increased consumption of probiotics. In addition, with the growing population as well as the increase in the demand for probiotic supplements, the manufacturing companies are expanding their operations through acquisition. For instance:

  • In 2021, Archer Daniels Midland acquired Deerland Probiotics & Enzymes to expand its health & wellness products, which include probiotics & dietary supplements across the region.

Possible Restraint: High Cost of the Probiotic Supplements to Hinder the Market Growth

The high costs associated with developing new probiotic strains, including lactobacillus, bifidobacterium infantis, etc., hindered the market growth, since maintaining the shelf life, monitoring, and exposure to oxygen are essential to bacteria's survival. Therefore, the investment in R&D and laboratories are pricey, and the requirement for trained professionals & research equipment is very costly. These are some factors that are expected to hamper the growth of probiotic supplements.

Furthermore, the probiotic supplements have a lower shelf life, therefore the manufacturers need cold storage to increase their shelf life, which requires a very high amount of cost & might hinder the market growth.
