The protein ingredients market is projected to reach about USD 34 billion by 2020. It will flourish due to high demand from the foods & beverages industry. Proteins are a key to solving nutritional deficiencies. They are extensively used in infant formulations and cosmetic products. Demand for these ingredients would also increase on account of their high efficiency and nutritive value.
Proteins are best derived from eggs. But allergies to wheat glucans, especially in the U.S., and unattractive egg prices could result in increased plant & dairy products. Imbalanced supply-demand of grains leads to fluctuating soybean prices. This augments the production costs of protein ingredients, thus hindering the market.
