Key Market Trends

Japan Holds a Prominent Share in the Market

In Japan, the development of probiotic ingredients and finished products is based on scientific proofs and supported by health requirements. Additionally, Japanese consumers have been very conscious about replenishing the gut flora on a regular basis, and they perceive probiotic bacteria to be the best solution, which is strongly driving the probiotics market in the country. Notably, the Japanese-based brand, Yakul, is so prevalent in the country that the products are served as part of school lunches and delivered to homes by its employees, thus, augmenting its growth in the country.


Convenience Stores is the Fastest Growing Segment

The convenience stores segment of the market is experiencing above-average growth, supported by an increasing store count and a business model that is well-suited to address the needs of the consumers’ on-the-go lifestyles. Many convenience stores stay open for longer hours than the traditional retail stores, which gives more time, in the day, for the products to be sold and for last-minute purchases to be made. Convenience stores are the most preferred sales channel by consumers in most of the developing countries, as they offer great services and competitive prices. The consumer demand for healthier food and beverage options is leading to a growth of the probiotics market through this channel.


Competitive Landscape

Probiotic foods are currently dominated by dairy products, such as fermented milk drinks, probiotic yogurts, and probiotic yogurt drinks. The major players in the market are Yakult, Danone, Morinaga, and Nestlé. These players have further consolidated their positions in recent years. The launch of new innovative products in the market is one of the major strategies adopted by the players in the market, in order to expand their product portfolios and consumer bases.
