Consumption of antibiotics per capita is increasing on the backdrop of the increase in healthcare expenditure and out of pocket pharmaceutical spending. Low and middle income countries are growing in terms of per capita disposable income, and this factor is boosting antibiotic consumption in these countries. Furthermore, favorable policies to push antibiotics in these countries have amplified the usage of antibiotics in some of these countries. Excessive usage of antibiotics by an individual results in imbalance of microbiota, and also lowers the bacterial diversity as well as overall bacterial count in the gut.

Harmful effects of excess antibiotic consumption has been reported, necessitating the additional supplementation of friendly bacteria into the body. Some of these bacteria have also developed antibiotic resistant characteristics, and do not respond to the consumed antibiotics. It is thus important to replenish such bacteria in the body, thus nucleating targeted bacterial strain consumption. A larger chunk of such population relying on antibiotics has absorbed the importance of probiotic supplements, and have started consuming them. The consumption of antibiotics has shown a significant rise in BRICS countries in the last decade; some antibiotics are available over the counter in these countries. Needles to says, probiotic supplement manufacturers have also adopted a targeted approach in these countries, and have invested in marketing efforts. These factors collectively are expected to support the overall demand for probiotic supplements across the globe.
