The growing popularity and diverse applications of this versatile carbohydrate characterize the inulin market. Inulin is a naturally occurring polysaccharide that is frequently extracted from plants such as chicory roots. It is a fructan that is made up of chains of fructose molecules. Because of its potential health benefits, inulin is being used in pharmaceuticals and dietary supplements in addition to the food industry. It is known to help with digestive health, calcium absorption, and weight management, which aligns with the growing consumer demand for functional ingredients that promote overall well-being. Because of its role in improving gut health, diabetes, and cholesterol, the COVID-19 outbreak has increased demand for inulin. Immunity-boosting and nutritional supplements have become popular among consumers. The pandemic has raised consumer health awareness about the importance of purchasing sustainable and organic food products. Also, the rising prevalence of lifestyle-related health issues such as obesity and digestive disorders has increased the demand for functional ingredients such as inulin. As inulin is often perceived as a natural and plant-derived alternative, the growing trend of clean-label and natural products has boosted the market.

However, the high production costs associated with extracting inulin, particularly from chicory roots, act as a restraint. Along with this, the scarcity of raw materials and price fluctuations have an impact on the overall cost of inulin production. Market participants face challenges due to regulatory complexities and standards regarding health claims associated with inulin products.
