Human microbiome refers to the good and healthy microbes present in the human gastrointestinal tract. The primary function of these microbes is to aid in digestion absorption and synthesis of essential nutrients for the human body. Since centuries the importance of microorganism in maintaining healthy human homeostasis is known and studied. The human microbiome market is driven by factors such as rising prevalence of chronic diseases and technological development in the nutraceutical industry primarily focusing on the prebiotics and probiotics market growth. The importance of human microbiome in developing as a diagnostic tool is still in nascent stage with challenges related to regulatory approval.
Prebiotics and probiotics occupy the largest share in the products segment owing to its importance in maintaining healthy gut microflora which aids the synthesis of essential amino acids, small chain fatty acids and absorption of vitamins. The source for probiotics and prebiotics is abundant ranging from dairy, cereals, vegetable and fruits. State of the art formulation and development segment present in the nutraceutical industry makes it available in diverse range of products for all age group. Supplements are gaining prominence as an adjuvant and supportive therapy for the treatment of lifestyle disorders such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, gastrointestinal disorders etc.
Presently therapeutics dominate the applications segment on account of key factors such as increasing public demand for probiotics and prebiotics to maintain excellent gastrointestinal health. Exhaustive research in identifying the useful microbes in the gut flora and their availability as probiotics and dietary supplements has resulted in positive traction for therapeutics segment. Human microbiome are gaining promising future as a diagnostic tool to detect chronic infectious diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, gastroenteritis etc.
According to Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics in 2016, approximately 14.7 million people in United States were diagnosed with gastrointestinal ulcers.
