South Korea Soluble Dietary Fibre Market to Reach Around USD 126.15 Million by 2032, Aided by Growing Demand for Clean Labelled Food Products

South Korea Soluble Dietary Fibre Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘South Korea Soluble Dietary Fibre Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market attained a value of about USD 87.11 million in 2023. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.2% in the forecast period of 2024-2032 to reach a value of around USD 126.15 million by 2032.

The South Korea soluble dietary fibre market expansion is being driven by the growing health consciousness and the rising demand for natural, organic, and health-promoting food and drink items. As a result, leading food manufacturers such as Lotte Chilsung Beverage Co., Ltd. and E&S Co., Ltd. are developing functional foods and beverages while keeping high nutrition content and being free from sugar.


Koreans are fond of having an average of 2 to 3 cups of coffee per day. The in-built coffee culture induces key players like Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) to develop zero-sugar coffee mixes and coffee beverages to gain a larger share of the market. Soluble fibres such as inulin and pectin are gaining popularity due to their ability to regulate blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Furthermore, the popularity of fibre-rich foods and supplements has increased due to the prevalence of obesity and other digestive problems in South Korea.


In March 2024, Samyang Corporation (KRX: 145990) announced its plans to expand its business to include nutritional food materials such as alternative sweetener allulose, water-soluble dietary fibre, ovarian, and maltodextrin. The company is actively engaged in the development of prebiotic materials such as ovarian igneous maltodextrin and fructooligosaccharide that serve as food for intestinal beneficial bacteria. With a dietary fibre content of over 85%, ovarian Hwaseong maltodextrin is a water-soluble dietary fibre that aids in reducing bowel movements after meals, lowering blood sugar levels, and enhancing blood-neutral lipid levels. Furthermore, fructooligosaccharides can be added to dairy items and chocolate-processed products as a sweetener. By incorporating such soluble dietary fibres, food manufacturers are offering fibre-rich ready-to-eat foods and beverages to consumers.
