Report ID: 139829 3300 Agriculture 377 237 Pages 5 (33)

Market Overview:

The global protein ingredients 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 functional foods and beverages, rising awareness about the benefits of protein-rich diets, and growing demand from emerging markets. Animal protein ingredients are expected to dominate the global protein ingredients market in terms of revenue share during the forecast period. This can be attributed to their high nutritional value and widespread use in food and beverage applications. Plant protein ingredients are projected to grow at a higher CAGR than animal protein ingredients during the forecast period, owing to their health benefits such as weight management, diabetes prevention, and heart health promotion. In terms of application, nutritional supplements are expected to account for the largest share of revenue in the global protein ingredients market during 2018-2030.

Global Protein Ingredients Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Protein ingredients are used to fortify foods with protein. They can be derived from animal or plant sources and are used to improve the nutritional profile of a food product. Protein ingredients are important for athletes, people who are trying to lose weight, and others who need more protein in their diets.

Animal Protein Ingredients:

Animal protein ingredients are the substances that are obtained from animal sources such as meat, eggs, milk & their derivatives. Protein ingredients can be categorized into two types: complete and incomplete. Incomplete protein is obtained from plant sources such as soybeans & corn and is used in various food products for its nutritional benefits.

Plant Protein Ingredients:

Plant protein ingredients are the extracts from different parts of plants that can be extracted and processed in a cost-effective manner. Plant proteins have been used as an alternative to animal proteins on account of their being a more abundant source, being less expensive, and having similar amino acid composition as compared to animal sourced products. The demand for plant protein is expected to grow over the forecast period owing to increasing health consciousness among consumers coupled with rising concerns regarding the use of antibiotics and growth hormones in animals.

Application Insights:

The nutritional supplements application segment led the global protein ingredients market in 2017 and is projected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The increasing geriatric population across the world is expected to be a major driving factor for this growth. Moreover, rising awareness regarding muscle building and weight loss among consumers is likely to fuel demand for nutritional supplements containing protein ingredients globally.

The food application segment accounted for more than 35% of the global revenue share in 2017 owing to extensive usage of proteins as additives in various foods including bakery products, dairy products, cereals & granola bars, ice cream etc. Rising demand for functional foods with added health benefits is anticipated drive product demand over the next eight years from 2018 until 2030 when compared with other applications such as beverage or cosmetics where there has been very little penetration so far.

Regional Analysis:

North America accounted for the largest share of 33.0% in 2017 and is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The region has a well-established food & beverage industry, which is expected to play a crucial role in promoting product usage as an ingredient across various applications. Moreover, rising awareness regarding nutritional diet among consumers from U.S.

Asia Pacific was valued at USD X billion in 2017.

Europe also held a considerable market share in terms of volume consumption (9th position) owing its large meat processing industry including Denmark (7th), Germany (5th), France (4th) Italy(3rd).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for healthy and nutritious food products is driving the growth of the global protein ingredients market.
  • The increasing awareness about the health benefits of consuming protein-rich foods is fueling the demand for protein ingredients in the global market.
  • The growing popularity of functional foods and dietary supplements is propelling the growth of the global protein ingredients market.
  • The increasing use of plant-based proteins as a source of dietary proteins is contributing to the growth of this market globally.
