Global Beta-glucan Market: Insights

The global beta-glucan market is estimated to be valued at USD 403.5 million in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 628.3 million by 2026, at a CAGR of 7.2%. The demand for beta-glucan has increased drastically owing to rising awareness amongst users related to healthy dietary supplements across the globe. Beta-glucan is one of the most efficient sources to control the increasing cholesterol in the body. Studies have shown that approximately 93 million adults over 20 years and above age have reported higher cholesterol rates of 200 mg/dl in the United States. Heart diseases are highly prevalent in populations aging above 50-70 years; however, today, individuals being reported with heart diseases are considerable of a very young age mainly due to their highly unstable and unbalanced health and immune systems. The World Health Organization reports show that 17.9 million individuals are affected by severe heart diseases, and 4 out of the five individuals affected by these heart diseases are below the age of 70 years. The high prevalence of heart diseases and high cholesterol issues have accelerated the usage of these beta-glucan across the globe.

Beta-glucan are the type of sugar compounds or fibers that are majorly found on the cell walls of microorganisms like bacteria, algae, fungi, yeast, or plants. These fibers hold a significant role in the medical industry. Consumers around the world are becoming extremely health-conscious, and have high awareness about maintaining a good immune system. Hence because of these factors, the market for glucan will be rising rapidly from 2021-2026.

The U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently published a study on the usefulness of beta-glucan to maintain a healthy heart. Their studies have also proved the fact that consuming beta-glucan in various forms reduces cholesterol rates by approximately 5 % to 7 % in an individual’s body. The growing number of diabetes patients around the world are also suggested to incorporate food containing beta-glucan components in it, as these fibers assist in reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes and also help control the blood sugar of those who already have diabetes. Also, the increasing rate of patients, especially women with cervical cancer, is growing across the globe. Beta-glucan is typically a common and standardly used treatment to cure cervical cancer. Hence, because of these factors the market for glucan will be exponentially increasing during the forecast period.

Besides the market being highly driven by the demand for beta-glucan to treat various diseases, the manufacturers and prominent industry players are bringing in a variety of products that have incorporated beta-glucan as a healthy option for the consumers.

Global Beta-glucan Market: By Source

Based on the source, the beta-glucan market is segmented into cereal, mushroom, yeast, and seaweed. Amongst these, cereal is the majorly demanded source to incorporate beta-glucan into the dietary plans and hence will be the largest shareholder in the market. Cereals like oats and barley have a high concentration of beta-glucan, which is extremely helpful in controlling cholesterol and diabetes levels. These cereals like oat and barley are considered an option that promotes ease in cooking and saves time.

Mushrooms are expected to witness fast growth within the market during the forecast period. The beta-glucan content present in the mushroom makes it a highly demanded source for immune modulation and has anti-tumor properties.

Global Beta-glucan Market: By Type

Based on the type of beta-glucan, the market is segmented into soluble and insoluble types. The soluble type of beta-glucan holds a dominant position in the market as compared to the insoluble beta-glucan. Soluble type of beta-glucan efficiently dissolves in the water. Various food types consumed by individuals consist of varying ratios of soluble and insoluble beta-glucan. However, beta-glucan present in the sources like cereals and its supplementary forms like oats, barley, pulses, or other grains, are majorly soluble. These are highly demanded due to their soluble nature that makes digestive processes easy and assists the intestinal part to absorb all the required and essential fibers of beta-glucan from it.

Global Beta-glucan Market: By Application

Based on the application, the beta-glucan market can be segmented into food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics & personal care, animal feed, and others. The food and beverage industry is the biggest user of beta-glucan for its various application purposes and hence holds a dominating position in the market. Sources of beta-glucan are cereals like oats, barley, pulses, grains, or plants like mushrooms and seaweed which are incorporated in various forms in an individual's diet. The increasing demand for these accelerates the growth of the food and beverage industry in the beta-glucan market compared to the rest of the applications.
