The Probiotics/Prebiotics Market
Interest in microbiota, specifically in human health and disease, has encouraged consumers to focus on digestive health, which has seen the probiotics and prebiotics market go from strength-to-strength.
As a result, the global probiotics and prebiotics market was valued at approximately USD 40.09 billion in 2017 and is expected to generate revenue of around USD 65.87 billion by end of 2024, growing at a compound annual growth rate of around 7.35% between 2018 and 2024.
