Asia-Pacific Remains the Fastest Growing Market

In the Asia-Pacific region, the probiotics drinks market has a huge opportunity. The majority of probiotics are consumed in the form of yogurts and fermented products (from soy to vegetables and even eggs). Probiotic drinks, such as drinking yogurt, have been experiencing increasing demand from the region. Global players, like Yakult, are facing tough competition from local players, such as Mengniu group. Probiotics used as animal feed have been gaining popularity in the region, owing to the livestock industry’s growing awareness of their ability to enhance the animals’ immunity and improve health conditions. The consumption of probiotics in animal diets enhances their digestibility and promotes pH balance, which in turn has led to an increase in consumption among ruminants (apart from other types, such as poultry and swine).
