“Ever Grossing Demand for Probiotic Drinks to Propel the Market in Asia Pacific “

The global probiotics market is geographically divided into Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Amongst these, North America possesses the most advanced probiotics market. There are several formats and varieties of probiotic products that are available in the retail space in North America.

Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is evolving persistently when it comes to the probiotics market in that region. This is because Japan and China have started occupying more than half of the sales in Asia Pacific. Yakult, a Japanese producer of fermented milk that is infused with approximately 6.5 billion probiotic LcS, for instance, has a widespread presence in the countries like India, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore and more. This has further resulted in the rise in demand for probiotic drinks in India as well as in the other countries of Southeast and Central Asia.

Additionally, the governments of numerous countries in the Asia Pacific are creating awareness programs regarding the productivity and health of farm animals.  That is why, farmers and livestock owners have started shifting towards probiotic-based animal feed rather than using AGPs. All these factors are expected to propel the market in Asia Pacific during the period of 2018 to 2025. The probiotics markets in New Zealand and Australia are also the fastest growing ones.
