Global Human Microbiome Market Report 2020-2027 - Growing Technological Advancements in Metagenomics and Next-generation Sequencing


Dublin, Nov. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Human Microbiome Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Product, Disease, Application, and Geography" report has been added to's offering.

Prebiotics Segment to Grow at Highest CAGR during 2020-2027

The market is expected to reach US$ 4,542.67 million by 2027 from US$ 2,620.88 million in 2019.

Increasing focus on human microbiome therapies and growing technological advancements in metagenomics and next-generation sequencing are expected to boost the growth of the market. On the other hand, strict government guidelines and lack of knowledge about detailed examination are likely to have a negative impact on the growth of the market in the coming years.

Based on product, the human microbiome market is segmented into probiotics, foods, prebiotics, medical foods, diagnostic devices, drugs, and supplements. In 2019, the probiotics segment held the largest share of the human microbiome market. This segment is expected to dominate the market in 2027 owing to increasing health concerns; growing awareness regarding the relation of nutrition, diet, and health; and increasing probiotics market penetration in dairy and other foods. Furthermore, the prebiotics segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate during the forecast period.

Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) has emerged as an effective treatment for C. difficile infection (CDI). The microbiota have important roles in the function of gastrointestinal tract and other aspects of human physiology. There has been rise in interest in studying FMT for other clinical indications.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified human stool as a biological agent and determined that the use of human stool in FMT therapy and other research must be regulated for the insurance of patient safety. To use FMT in the treatment of recurrent Clostridium difficile infection, an investigational new drug permit is not required, but it is strongly encouraged and may ultimately be required.

In March 2016, the US FDA released clarifying guidance and the draft of Guidance for Industry: Enforcement Policy Regarding Investigational New Drug Requirements that focused on the use of Fecal Microbiota for Transplantation to Treat Clostridium difficile infection when the patients is not responsive to standard therapies.

Some of the available data suggests that the use of fecal microbiota for the restoration of intestinal flora may be an effective therapy in the management of refractory C. difficile infection. However, the efficiency and protection profiles of this intervention have not yet been fully evaluated in controlled clinical trials. Thus, the investigational drug requirement plays a vital role in the application of microbiome, thereby giving it an array of opportunities in future.

Several players have observed good demand for human microbiome based products during the initial period of COVID-19, particularly from the food & beverages industry. In addition, researchers are studying the correlation between gut bacteria and COVID-19. Many researchers have showcased gut bacteria's implication in different health conditions, from type 2 diabetes to depression. However, the obstacles in supply chains and distribution networks resulting in unavailability of human microbiome based products in various parts of the world are likely to hamper the growth of the market in 2020.
