The Probiotic manufacturing companies are estimated to have a strong Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR), revenue wise, owing to their efficient distribution channels and focus on establishment of their exclusive outlets in various malls and supermarkets. Probiotic dairy foods and drinks are the largest segment in the probiotic market, in terms of revenue. This study is based on consumer preferences for fermented probiotic dairy products collected from 250 respondents based on the socio-demographic information of the households in Metropolitan Delhi.
