You can’t put a price tag on your health. But there’s no denying it: fiber is big business.
A 272-page research report now out attempts to put a price tag on dietary fiber…and a hefty one at that.
“Dietary Fiber Market by Product Type – Global Trends & Forecasts up to 2017” estimates that the global dietary fiber market will be worth $3.25 billion by 2017.
Report highlights include:
- Major drivers of fiber intake are an aging population, increasing consumption rates of supplemental fiber, and growing consumer knowledge about the health benefits of fiber
- North America holds the majority of market share in dietary fiber, about 36% of the global market
- Although food applications dominate the market currently, the supplement arena (and in particular, soluble fibers) are expected to be the fastest growing segment moving forward
If you’ve got $4,650 to blow on a dietary fiber report, you can order it here…and let me know what else you find out if you do!
