The increasing importance of several Lactobacillus strains due to their increasing use in the improvement of human and animal health and nutrition is predicted to boost the market share of the product. Lactobacillus strains have an inhibitory potential in food against the growth of altering microbes and pathogens, which is beneficial for extending shelf-life and increasing the hygienic superiority of foods. Hence, they are widely considered as natural biological agents due to their antimicrobial potential. This factor is predicted to drive the global market as the demand for minimally processed foods with a longer shelf-life is increasing.

The prominent players operating in the market are intensifying their efforts for the development of highly effective technical substitutes to the industry that permit the application and production of Lactobacillus strains as a growth factor for the food and beverages sector. Furthermore, research efforts are being made intended at assessing various substrates for Lactobacillus strain production.

The Lactobacillus strain are beneficial to human because of their potential in reducing enteric diseases in humans, which is predicted to positively impact the product growth. Lactobacillus strains represent sources of beneficial organisms’ origin in the human intestinal tracts and they are used as probiotics.

The regular consumption of probiotics can confer health benefits to the host as it contains good live microorganisms. Furthermore, the retail shelves of probiotic products have wider product variety and consumers are inclined towards these products due to their various health benefits, which can trigger the production of Lactobacillus strains. For instance, Yakult Honsha claims that they sell 40,676 bottle per day of its product Yakult (fermented drink), which contains Lactobacillus casei strain. The increasing popularity of Lactobacillus strain containing products is expected to drive the global market.

Key Market Driver -

Rising Focus on Research and Development of Several Substrates for Lactobacillus Strain

Key Market Restraint -

High Investment Required for the Development of New Strains

The high investment required for the research and development of new Lactobacillus strains is predicted to restrain the market growth. Moreover, low awareness about the health significance of probiotics in some economies can further negatively impact the market.

Key Players Covered:

The prominent players operating in the global Lactobacillus strain market are Yakult Honsha, Danone S.A., Nestle S.A., DowDuPont, Chobani LLC., Chr. Hansen, Lallemand Inc., Kerry Inc., Post Holdings Inc., Arla Foods Inc., and Others.

Lactobacillus acidophilus is present in a variety of dairy beverages and foods as it provides a wide range of health benefits, from averting yeast infections to curing cancer. The consumption of Lactobacillus acidophilus containing food product can help to relieve the effects of lactose intolerance by helping the body metabolize and break down of lactose. Therefore, the demand for Lactobacillus acidophilus is increasing among probiotic producers. Moreover, the adequate consumption of Lactobacillus casei containing product can help to regulate digestive system, hence, with the increasing incidences of reported digestive disorders the market share of this strain is expected to increase in the forthcoming years.

The dairy beverages segment is expected to hold prominent share in the market. The increasing popularity of fermented dairy beverages such as yakult and kefir is predicted to positively impact the product share in forthcoming years. Moreover, fermentation of dairy beverages improves taste of the product and lowers the pH, which inhibits contamination by pathogens. Therefore, the demand for Lactobacillus strains from fermented dairy beverages producers is projected to remain high.

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at considerable pace in the market. The escalating buyers preference towards health benefiting food products along with the increasing realization about the importance of fermented products in balanced diet are imposing fermented product manufacturers to introduce new products in the market, as a result the production of various Lactobacillus strains is expected to increase. For instance, Japan based company Yakult Honsha claims that the company sales 9,540 Yakult bottles per day in Japan. The increasing popularity of these fermented drinks is expected to drive the Asia Pacific market.

North America is projected to hold considerable share in the global market. The prominent players are embarking on the research and development of new Lactobacillus strains and base expansion which is predicted to positively impact the market growth. For instance, in August 2017, DuPont invested USD 10 Million to expand its probiotic facility in Madison, Wisconsin, US. This expansion can help the company to further expand its presence in the market.
