Nowadays, there is a growing awareness regarding functional food and dietary supplements and the potential role these products play in human health. With this, probiotics are becoming increasingly popular as a functional food because of their health benefits, such as improved intestinal health, ameliorated lactose intolerance, enhanced immune response, reduced serum cholesterol, cancer prevention, and reduced risk of various other diseases. Moreover, rising awareness activities are expected to drive consumer awareness about probiotic products. Also, many countries are taking initiatives to promote the health benefits of probiotics.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Probiotics Market

Scientific evidence exists to support probiotics’ ability to boost human immunity, thereby preventing colonization by pathogens and reducing the incidence and severity of infections, including COVID-19. For example, Dupont reported a growth in its Nutrition & Biosciences segment in its 2020 first-quarter result, with its probiotics section seeing its strongest growth period to date. In April 2020, Probi reported that its probiotic sales had been bolstered, noting a clear increase in its immunity products’ interest.
