Increasing Consumption of Antibiotics to Drive Growth of the Global Probiotics Supplements Market
Increasing consumption of antibiotics across the globe has resulted into imbalance of microbiota among individuals, and lowered the bacterial diversity as well as overall bacterial count in the gut. This has been propelling demand for probiotic supplements in order to cater additional supplementation of friendly bacteria in the body of individuals who consume excess antibiotics. Probiotic supplements are also helping patients with vaginal and urinary tract infections. These factors are expected to fuel growth of the global probiotic supplements market. In addition, factors such as usage of probiotics in infants or kids associated with C-section delivery, increasing incidences of stomach indigestion in kids, and health benefits of probiotic supplements are expected to drive demand for probiotic supplements.
Limited Availability of Probiotic Supplements in Developing Countries to Impede Growth of the Market
However, there is a limited availability of probiotic supplements in developing countries. Medical practitioners in these countries therefore have limited knowledge and awareness about probiotic supplements. Although manufacturers of probiotic supplements are taking huge steps in increasing awareness about associated benefits, consumers have not been reciprocating at similar threshold. Factors such as these are expected to impede growth of the global probiotic supplements market.
