Global Dietary Fibers Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

The global dietary fibers market is estimated to garner a revenue of around USD 15 Billion by the end of 2035 by growing at a CAGR of ~7% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. Further, the market generated a revenue of nearly USD 7 Billion in the year 2022. The market’s growth can be attributed to the increasing popularity of dietary supplements. Dietary fibers are highly used in dietary supplements such as fiber drinks, supplement tablets, and others. Over 63% and 67% of people in Lithuania took nutritional supplements to strengthen their bodies and immune systems, respectively. Also, during a pandemic, consumption greatly soared.


 In addition to these, factors that are believed to fuel the market growth of dietary fibers include the rising use of beta-glucan owing to its rising benefits. Beta-glucans are soluble fibers found in the cell walls of various bacteria, plants, yeasts, and fungi. Taking 2.5-3.5 grams of beta-glucan daily for 3 to 8 weeks can lower fasting blood sugar levels and enhance long-term blood sugar management in persons with type 2 diabetes. On the other hand, the rising collaboration of major players is also expected to ring lucrative opportunities for the market. For instance, AGT Food and Ingredients Inc. (AGT), one of the largest suppliers of value-added plant-based food products, collaborated with Equinom, the food technology company. Both companies  aim to boost the development, certification, and commercialization of co-branded functional ingredients made from Equinox ultra-high protein yellow pea varieties.
