Chicory can also be beneficial in reducing the risk of heart disease and diabetes respectively along with helping to manage cholesterol levels and lowering blood glucose and insulin responses.

Some studies suggest that chicory root can be a useful natural diabetes treatment and has the ability to prevent and treat diabetes. Chicory root extract has the potential to postpone or avoid the early start of diabetes and mitigate advancement or emergence of their related problems.

A current trend in the market is rising demand for supplementary products and energy bars due to health consciousness. Chicory is a multipurpose and beneficial plant, which can be extracted to serve as a dietary supplement, brewed as an alternative to coffee or consumed as a vegetable. Inulin, a form of fiber found in chicory root, has been shown to enhance weight loss, reduce blood sugar, and promote better digestive health. As a prebiotic, inulin can nourish good bacteria in the digestive system. Chicory inulin is frequently added to energy bars and supplements to lower their calorie level and improve their fiber content. Consuming fiber can help to feel satisfied and full, which can help to prevent overeating and cravings.

However, excessive reliance on mainstream products such as coffee, is a key factor, which could restrain market revenue growth. Coffee is a popular beverage all around the world due to the distinct flavor, energizing properties, and cultural significance. Coffee drinkers frequently associate their good mood swings, vitality, and cognitive function to the flavor and aroma of coffee. Coffee comes in a range of varieties, mixes, and preparations to suit diverse tastes and situations. In addition, customers are not as familiar with or fond of chicory, particularly in areas where coffee is the predominant crop. Some coffee enthusiasts cannot enjoy different taste and aroma of chicory compared to coffee.

Segment Insights

On the basis of type, the global chicory market is segmented into chicory instant powder, roasted chicory, chicory inulin, chicory flour, and others.

The chicory instant powder segment accounted for largest revenue share in the global chicory market in 2022 due to rising demand for caffeine free and flavorful alternatives to traditional coffee. Dry chicory roots are roasted until these have a perfect, smooth flavor and aroma, and then these are grounded into a fine powder to make chicory instant powder.

Plant-part Insights:

On the basis of plant-part, the global chicory market is segmented into root, leaf, and other parts.

The root segment is expected to account for significantly large revenue share in the global chicory market during the forecast period due to rising awareness and demand for prebiotic-rich foods.

Chicory root can be powdered and used in baking or as a coffee substitute, while endive and chicons are two of the numerous varieties grown for their salad leaves. Chicory root resembles wood in texture, and due to their fibrous makeup, it does not break down in small intestine but instead keeps its shape as it passes through to the colon or large intestine. One of the best food sources of prebiotics available is fresh chicory roots, which include roughly 68 grams of inulin in a 100-gram dose.

Application Insights:

On the basis of application, the global chicory market is segmented into Food & Beverage (F&B), dietary supplements, healthcare & medicine, cosmetics & personal care, animal feed, and others.

Supplements containing chicory root are becoming increasingly popular due to their possible health advantages, which include better digestion, decreased inflammation, and faster weight loss. There are a few important considerations to make while selecting the chicory supplements.

It is crucial to first take into account the supplement’s form, including whether it comes in liquid, pill or powder form. While powders can be used to favorite meals or beverages, pills are simple and quick to ingest. For people who want a warm, comforting beverage, liquids are a wonderful choice. It is essential to carefully review the ingredient list to make sure that the supplement is composed entirely of chicory root and does not include any fillers or additives.
