Key Market Trends

Rising Demand for Probiotic Drinks in the Region

However, with technological advancements, companies, such as Ganedan have developed strains, like GanedenBC30 (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086). This has given the opportunity for manufacturers to come up with new probiotic product launches in categories, such as hot or cold beverages and other food products as well. Companies have been investing significantly in the probiotic drink market to differentiate their product portfolio in the market, particularly in terms of technological advancements. For instance, China-based company, Mengniu Group, has recently launched LC-37 utilizes powerful concentration technology, to substantially increase the number of probiotics- nearly 500 times more than the country standard.
