DUBLIN, March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "China Probiotics Market 2012-2016" market research report to their offering.
China only started to research and develop, mass produce and consume probiotics in the 1990s - much later than that in Japan and Europe. But the Chinese probiotics market has been increasing at a high rate due to the fast-growing yoghurt, supplement, pharma and feed sectors over the past decade. This research report gives an in-depth analysis of what comprises the ¥33,055 milllion ($5,117 million) China probiotics market size in 2011 and how the future market size will grow over the next 5 years.
There are several hundred kinds of nutritional foods and ingredients containing probiotics currently sold in the Chinese market, such as fermented milk (yoghurt), fermented cheese or cream, fermented soy milk, probiotics supplement and pharma products. This report will also give the detailed information on the typical products on the market in China.
Key players in the China probiotics market are comprehensively assessed in this report, in terms of corporate share structure, historical business achievement, product categories, product quality and prices, state of technological process development, competitive landscape - including foreign and domestic competitors, etc.
This research report also addresses the top concerns of overseas probiotics companies in the Chinese market:
- How competitive are the Chinese companies, especially China-Biotics, compared to the foreign ones?
- How real is the threat of Chinese suppliers to foreign enterprises?
- How concerned are the likes of Danisco, Chr. Hansen and Lallemand about local companies, especially their important clients in China, such as Mengniu, Yili, BIOSTIME, etc.?
- What size will the market size increase to and how many business opportunities will it bring to overseas and Chinese probiotics companies?
