The global human microbiome-based gut health test and nutrition market size was valued at US$ 110.83 Mn in 2021; It is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27.2 % from 2022 to 2030. Microorganisms found in the human body are known as human microbiomes. The human gut contains trillions of microorganisms (also known as microbiota or microbes) from thousands of different species, including bacteria and fungus, parasites, and viruses. Each person has a unique group of microbiota consisting of both helpful and potentially harmful microbes. In a healthy person, these microbiomes coexist, with the largest numbers found in the small and large intestines and throughout the body. Some are beneficial to health, while others are not, but both play an essential role in digestion and respiratory cycles.
In a healthy body, pathogenic and symbiotic microbiota coexist without problems. The nutrition to the human gut, i.e. probiotics provided to the gut, are live microorganisms that harness the human microbiome's power to develop scientifically-validated nutritional involvements that promote human health and reduce disease risk. Microbiota accelerates the immune system, breaks down potentially toxic food compounds, and synthesizes certain vitamins and amino acids, including B and vitamin K.
The diagnosis of human gut health is made with gut health test kits, which help diagnose the health and population of gut microbiota of infants, adults, and pregnant women. Gut health mentions the balance of microorganisms in the digestive tract. The importance of gut health and maintaining the right balance of bacteria is vital for immunity, physical and emotional well-being, and more.
The mechanisms driving the market of Human Microbiome-based Gut Health Test and Nutrition effects may directly or indirectly involve microbiota modulation or may instead be driven by other means, such as direct immune activation, enzyme production, or gut barrier interaction. Increasing collaborations within private and public organizations will provide essential opportunities. An increasing number of global Consumer Packaged Goods companies, the Emergence of technologically advanced start-ups, and biotechs companies will play a significant role in the worldwide market growth. In addition, Human Nutrition Summits and the introduction of innovative products and business growth through strategic alliances, mergers, and acquisitions among key players will push the market growth upward. In Nov 2020, Atlas Biomed launched its at-home gut health test kit in Japan as a part of its personalized nutrition service. In Nov 2019, Seed Health Announced a Research Partnership with Atmo Biosciences to Evaluate the Impact of Probiotics With the First Ingestible Gas Sensor Technology. However, a High intake of antibiotics and other supplements may restrain the global market.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the general consumer has become more aware of establishing good baseline health, gut health, and immunity, enhancing the gut health testing market.
The human microbiome-based gut health test and nutrition market are segmented into the end-users, products, and regions. The end-user segment includes three types adult, maternal, and infant. Secondly, the product segment consists of four main categories-D2C Gut Health Test, Probiotic supplements, Personalized nutrition, and Microbiome modulators. The modulator category comprises Ingredients, Medical food, and Therapeutics. On the basis of Region, The human microbiome-based gut health test and nutrition market is categorized into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa.
Regionally North America is likely to witness rapid growth during the forecast period (2022-2030) due to increased demand and the massive impact of COVID-19. Companies are awarded huge funds for research on live microbiome ingredients and the development of new products
