The global protein ingredients market was estimated at around 23.98 billion in 2015. The rising awareness about the product’s health benefits, supported by strong scientific evidence, is anticipated to drive the growth of this market during the forecast period. In addition, rising awareness regarding dietary supplements is expected to play a key role in the growth of this market during the forecast period. The human body requires amino acids for the healing of cells; however, it is not capable of producing these important amino acids. Hence, there is an increasing need to consume them externally through diet. These amino acids can be obtained from plants and animals.
The rising demand for the product from the food & beverage, animal feed, cosmetics, and personal care industries is expected to augment the growth of this industry during the forecast period. The animal-based products are extracted from milk products, fish, egg, and meat, and plant-based products are obtained from canola oil, soy, rice, pulses, and wheat. Depending on the type of extraction technique, the proteins extracted from milk and soy can be segmented into isolates, hydrolysates, and concentrates. The key restraint that could impact the growth of the industry is the price volatility of raw materials. The fluctuating prices of soybean may create imbalances in the supply-demand equilibrium of the grains.
