The global dietary fiber market in terms of volume is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.4% from 2014 to 2019. Although dominated by conventional fibers, the novel fibers segment is projected to drive the growth 2014 to 2019. The penetration of conventional fibers is high in the developing countries and these are expected to witness a sluggish growth in the years ahead due to the rapid growth and acceptance of novel fibers. The R&D activities, technology developments and unearthing new sources of fibers for the market creates opportunities for the novel fiber segment.

The global dietary fiber market is largely driven by the volume growth in its end-use industries. The penchant for consumption of products such as functional food, beverage, dairy, meat products, and pharmaceuticals is resulting in the growth of this industry. And hence, developed F&B markets such the U.S. and other EU-27 countries are at the forefront of market demands. These markets, however, show modest growth trends. The changing dynamics of consumption pattern in the Asian developing economies is poised to drive future growth of the dietary fiber sector. Trend of increasing aging population, improving customer preferences towards functional foods, and increasing demand for the dietary supplements sector will boost the demand for dietary fibers.
