About this report

The United States prebiotics market is currently in a growth stage and is expected to experience considerable development throughout the forecast period. Growth of the market will be driven by the increasing demand for functional foods in the United States as consumers become more aware of the benefits of prebiotics beyond digestive health. Furthermore, there is still a gap of at least 10 grams per day in the fibre intake of the average American. The market prices will be supported by demand, but there remains the question of how much the increased competition will offset any of the price increase.
