Market overview of protein ingredients

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global protein ingredients market to grow at a CAGR of more than 6% by 2020. One of the primary drivers for this market is an increase in the health-conscious population across the globe. A rise in health-related issues among people worldwide has propelled them to opt for functional food and beverages that contain the right amount of proteins and other nutrients. With the increased consumption of protein-rich products by health-conscious population, the demand for protein ingredients has increased considerably.  Moreover, the growing demand for soy proteins for several food applications such as dairy products, snacks, and sports nutrition products will positively contribute to the growth of this market in the coming years.

As per this market research analysis, vendors in the market are launching several new protein ingredients and protein ingredient-based food and beverage products with new applications to meet the increasing demand from consumers. For instance, Arla Foods has introduced its advanced whey protein concentrate, Lacprodan DI-7017. Vendors are also carrying out extensive promotional and marketing initiatives to create a demand for new products such as organic soy, whey, pea and other plant-based proteins among consumers.

Segmentation by product and analysis of the protein ingredients market

  • Animal protein
  • Plant protein

The plant protein ingredients will dominate the protein ingredients market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 7% by 2020. One of the primary reasons for the adoption of plant-based protein ingredients is their cost advantages compared to animal-based protein ingredients. Also, the plant protein ingredients are eco-friendlier than animal protein ingredients as they consume less energy, less water, and less land. The growing trend toward vegetarianism among consumers is encouraging manufacturers to use plant protein ingredients in their food products, thereby fueling the growth of this segment overt the next four years.
