The global digestive health market was pegged at US$ 42.22 billion in 2021 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period.
The body's ability to effectively digest food and absorb nutrients is dependent on digestive health. Constipation, heartburn, bloating, indigestion, and more serious digestive illnesses are less common in those with healthy digestion. When gut health is subpar, it may be necessary to take probiotics or digestion-supporting enzymes. The probiotics balance gut flora and may lessen some IBS, UC, and diarrhea symptoms. In situations where the body is unable to produce enzymes on its own, doctors may prescribe both over-the-counter remedies and prescription enzyme replacements.
One of the main factors driving the revenue growth of the global digestive health market is the rising demand for food additives that are nourishing and fortifying. Products for digestive health aid in boosting immunity and battling harmful micro-organisms. Consumption of products for digestive health is likely to rise because of consumers' increasing willingness to pay a little bit more for better health. Thus, it is expected that during the forecast period, demand for digestive health products would rise as consumer knowledge of gut health increases.
Due to poor eating practices and high consumption of processed, high-sodium, and ready-to-eat meals, the prevalence of obesity, digestive disorders, and lifestyle-related diseases are expected to increase, driving the demand for digestive health products. Extensive research and development activities for developing innovative novel products are also driving the demand amongst consumers. However, stringent regulations for the approval of the supplements are expected to hamper the market revenue growth to some extent.
