Market Overview:

The global protein hydrolysate market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for plant-derived and animal-derived protein hydrolysates from various applications such as infant nutrition, medical nutrition, sports nutrition, and cell nutrition. North America is expected to dominate the global protein hydrolysate market during the forecast period owing to the presence of major players in this region and rising demand for healthy food products. However, Asia Pacific is projected to grow at a highest CAGR during the forecast period due to increasing awareness about health benefits associated with consumption of protein hydrolysates and growing population base.

Global Protein Hydrolysate Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A protein hydrolysate is a purified, water soluble protein that has been enzymatically digested into peptides and amino acids. It is used as a nutritional supplement and in the food industry.

Plant-derived Protein Hydrolysate:

Plant-derived protein hydrolysate is a new term in the food & beverage industry which was introduced to cater to the increasing demand for plant-based products. Protein hydrolysate is a product, which contains amino acids (protein) and water soluble vitamins (A, B6 & B12). It also has some minerals like iron, calcium & magnesium along with it.

Animal-derived Protein Hydrolysate:

Animal-derived protein hydrolysate is a product derived from the process of hydrolysis of animal proteins. Protein Hydrolysate (PH) has several advantages over intact proteins including lesser immunogenicity, easier digestibility and absorption in the human body, and higher bioavailability. The growing consumer awareness towards health & nutrition has resulted in increased consumption of functional foods with high nutritional value which is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.

Application Insights:

Medical nutrition was the largest application segment in 2016 and is expected to witness a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period owing to rising demand for nutritional supplements among athletes, bodybuilders, and patients requiring hospital diet. Rising awareness regarding diseases related to malnutrition is anticipated to boost product demand in medical nutrition applications during the forecast period.

The sports nutrition segment held around 15% of market share in terms of revenue in 2016 due to increasing use of protein hydrolysates as additives for improving endurance performance and muscle strength. Furthermore, increasing use of plant-based protein hydrolysates as dietary supplements by athletes is projectededto drive growth over next eight years.

Regional Analysis:

North America accounted for the largest share of over 35.0% in 2017, owing to high demand from various application segments, including infant nutrition, medical nutrition and sports nutrition. The region is expected to witness significant growth in future as well due to rising awareness about health benefits associated with protein supplements among working professionals of the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to register a healthy growth rate over the forecast period owing to increasing consumption of nutritional products among consumers mainly from China and India on account of rising concerns regarding muscle wasting during weight loss or maintenance programs coupled with growing popularity for bodybuilding supplements amongst fitness enthusiasts & athletes especially women boxers & wrestlers will drive product demand further.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for healthy and nutritious food products is driving the growth of the protein hydrolysate market.
  • Growing awareness about the health benefits of protein hydrolysates is another major factor fuelling the market growth.
  • The increasing popularity of sports and fitness activities is also propelling demand for protein hydrolysates as a performance-enhancing ingredient.
  • Rising disposable income levels in developing countries are providing a boost to the sales of premium-priced protein hydrolysate products.
