Market Insights

Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are a prebiotic ingredient that has been used as a sweetener over the last few years, mainly in the food and beverage industry. The product is projected to replace various sweeteners from the food and beverage industry, such as xylitol, aspartame, and sucralose, on account of its cost-effectiveness and superior properties. Furthermore, the FOS is considered to be less harmful when added to numerous products as compared to its other counterparts. With increasing consumer demand for low-calorie or fat-free food and its associated health benefits, FOS is projected to have a positive impact on the market.

The increasing application scope of FOS in various other industries, such as gums, dairy, soups, and processed meat, is projected to boost market demand over the forecast period. Other applications for FOS include animal feed and pet food. Growth in the pet food and animal feed industries in emerging economies is projected to augment demand over the next six years. Increasing consumption of functional foods, mainly in North America and Europe, is projected to increase FOS demand over the forecast period. Moreover, it is also used in the manufacturing of dietary supplements as it helps improve digestion when consumed in appropriate quantities. Investments in R&D to introduce new applications with cost-effective manufacturing routes for FOS are projected to create new market opportunities over the next six years.
