Global Dietary Fibers Market is Segmented By Physical Properties (Soluble(Viscous, Non-viscous), Insoluble), By Application(Food & Beverages(Sports Nutrition, Baby & Toddlers Food, Cereals, Bakery), Pharmaceuticals), and By Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) – Share, Size, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2023-2030


Market Overview

Global Dietary Fibers Market reached USD 6.4 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 12.2 billion by 2030 growing with a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period 2023-2030. Dietary fibers are diverse in chemical composition, and can be grouped generally by their solubility, viscosity, and fermentability, which affect how fibers are processed in the body.

Dietary fiber or roughage is the portion of plant-derived food that cannot be completely broken down by human digestive enzymes. Dietary fiber has two main components that are soluble fiber and insoluble fiber, which are components of plant-based fibers and foods, such as legumes, whole grains and cereals, vegetables, fruits, and nuts or seeds. 

A diet high in regular fiber consumption is generally associated with supporting health and lowering the risk of several diseases. Dietary fiber consists of non-starch polysaccharides and other plant components such as cellulose, resistant starch, resistant dextrins, inulin, lignins, chitins (in fungi), pectins, beta-glucans, and oligosaccharides.

Market Dynamics

Rise in Consumer Preference for Natural Fiber Extract Products to Drive the Global Market Trends

Consumers are becoming more aware of the nutritional benefits of dietary fibers. These include improved digestive health, weight management, reduced risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and type 2 diabetes, and better control of blood sugar levels. According to a study published in the journal Nutrients, an increase in dietary fiber intake is associated with a reduced risk of coronary heart disease and stroke.

As consumers seek healthier alternatives to synthetic food additives and preservatives, dietary fibers are gaining traction as natural alternatives. They can act as stabilizers, thickeners, and emulsifiers in food products. A study published in the Journal of Food Science and Technology indicates the potential of using dietary fibers as natural additives in food processing.

A Rise in Awareness of Health Benefits from Dietary Fiber Sources is Expected to Drive The Dietary Fibers Market Growth

The rise in awareness of the health benefits of dietary fibers has played a crucial role in driving the dietary fibers market. As consumers become more informed about the positive impact of dietary fibers on overall health and well-being, they are actively seeking out products that incorporate these natural components. A study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded that dietary fiber supplements intake is associated with improved bowel function and a reduced risk of constipation.

Research conducted by the American Society for Nutrition found that dietary fiber intake positively influences gut microbiota, leading to improved gut health. A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials, published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, demonstrated that increased dietary fiber intake contributes to weight loss and weight management. The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that dietary fiber-rich foods provide a greater feeling of fullness, which may help in controlling appetite and reducing calorie intake.

Limited Consumer Awareness is Restraining the Dietary Fibers Market

Limited consumer awareness is a significant restraint for the dietary fibers market as it hinders the widespread adoption of fiber-rich products. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a daily intake of at least 25 grams of dietary fiber for adults to maintain good health. However, global average fiber intake is far below this recommended level. According to the Global Burden of Disease Study, the mean global intake of dietary fiber was only around 19 grams per day.

A study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found that many consumers are unaware of the specific health benefits associated with dietary functional fibers, such as improved digestive health, weight management, and reduced risk of chronic diseases. The National Fiber Council reported that only a small percentage of consumers understand the relationship between fiber intake and the prevention of certain diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes.


Segment Analysis

The global dietary fibers market is segmented based on physical properties, application, and region.

The Soluble Fiber Holds the Largest Market Share in the Dietary Fibers Market

Soluble fiber, such as pectins, gums, and beta-glucans, can be easily incorporated into various food products due to their water-solubility and ability to form gels and viscous solutions. This makes them suitable for use in a wide range of food applications, including beverages, dairy products, baked goods, and confectionery. A study published in the journal Food & Function highlights the versatile functionality of soluble fiber in various food systems, making them attractive options for food manufacturers.

Soluble fibers contribute to the desirable texture and mouthfeel of food products, especially in reduced-fat or low-calorie formulations. They can mimic the mouthfeel of fats, giving products a creamy and smooth texture without the need for added fats or oils. A study published in the Journal of Food Science demonstrated that the addition of soluble fiber (e.g., oat beta-glucan) improved the texture and sensory properties of yogurt, making it more appealing to consumers.


Geographical Penetration

North America is Dominating the Dietary Fibers Market

North American consumers are increasingly becoming health-conscious and seeking healthier food options. There is a growing awareness of the importance of a balanced diet and the role of dietary fibers in promoting overall well-being. According to a survey conducted by the International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation, 80% of U.S. consumers are trying to consume more fiber in their diets to improve their health.

North America has a well-established and supportive regulatory environment for dietary fibers. Government agencies, such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), have approved various dietary fibers as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) substances. The FDA also allows certain health claims related to dietary fibers, such as the association between soluble fiber and heart disease reduction. This provides food manufacturers with opportunities to include approved health claims on product labels.


Major Key Players

The major global players in the market include Fibersol, Ingredion, Benefiber, Citrucel, Fiber Choice, Konsyl, Metamucil, Vitafusion, Fiber, FiberCon, and Roquette Frères.


COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Covid-19 Impact:

The COVID-19 pandemic led to disruptions in global supply chains, affecting the production and distribution of various goods, including dietary fibers. Restrictions on international trade, transportation delays, and labor shortages at processing facilities could have impacted the availability and pricing of dietary fibers. During the pandemic, there was a shift in consumer behavior towards health and wellness. Many people became more conscious of their dietary choices, leading to increased interest in plant-based and nutritious food options like dietary fibers.
