Changing lifestyle and higher disposable income
Urbanization has led to changes in the lifestyle of consumers particularly in developing countries such as Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, China, and India. With increasing workload and busy lifestyles, coupled with the rise in disposable incomes, the consumption of processed convenience foods has increased leading to an increased demand for dietary fiber-based products. Several leading companies have started enhancing their processed food products with nutrients to meet the growing consumer demands for a balanced diet. Hence, dietary fibers have become a largely added functional ingredient choice by most processed food manufacturers, contributing to the growth of the dietary fiber market. This has resulted in the growing demand for products that offer balanced nutrition. Thus, the consumer demand for functional foods, nutraceuticals, and supplement has increased. Dietary fibers are used as an essential ingredient in functional foods. Hence, its market size increases along with the growth of the functional food sector.
Water stability and reactivity
Dietary fibers cannot be digested by humans due to lack of necessary enzymes (proteins that help produce chemical reactions) in the digestive tract. More specifically, they are resistant to hydrolysis. Since dietary fibers cannot be digested, they pass through the body virtually unchanged and cannot be used as an energy source. These properties of fibers are useful in the physiological functions. However, the same characteristics become a hindrance while incorporating fiber as an ingredient in food products. Blending of fibers into the product is of high importance for the chemical stability of the product across temperature range and time. This is one critical reason that manufacturers may slowly divert from dietary fibers. However, such a change would have an economic impact on fiber production due to the high price of dietary fibers.
Increase in demand for weight management products
Consumers have become conscious about their calorie intake and hence, the weight management segment is a fast growing market. Dietary fibers have a major application in weight management products. They can be marketed as satiety ingredients, which can be used for consumers on a diet. A fiber-rich diet can imbibe greater levels of satisfaction in consumers, thus serving the purpose of weight management. Dietary fibers aid in weight loss by activating the amylin hormone, which helps the body to feel less hungry. They create a sense of fullness for a longer period of time and reduce cravings for sweets and carbohydrates.
