Industry Insights

Protein is a vital constituent of the cells in the human body that help in repairing and healing the human body. However the human body is incapable in producing such vital 9 amino acids required for healing of cells in the human body. Hence it is of utmost importance that proteins must be consumed through diet. Proteins may be acquired through animal source or plant source – the so called Dairy Proteins and Soy Proteins. Animal Proteins are usually derived from fish, milk, meat, egg and gelatin. On the other hand, Plant Protein is obtained from rice, pea, soy, canola and wheat. Milk and soy have a substantial element of proteins, hence they are preferred by all age groups. Owing to the advancement in extraction techniques, the different types of protein ingredients obtained from milk and soy are named as concentrates, isolates and hydrolysates, amongst which isolates has about 90% of the protein content.

One of the key drivers for the growth of the market is the strong scientific evidence supporting health benefits. Ongoing research conducted by scientists has proved that protein ingredients are the best source to keep the body fit. Whey proteins are beneficial for cancer patients as well. Increasing consumer awareness, especially for functional foods and dietary supplements, has been a critical factor for market development in recent times. With egg proteins finding market penetration tough on account of unattractive prices and increasing sensitivity to wheat glucans, especially in the U.S., plant and dairy proteins are expected to witness enhanced demand over the next six years. However, the volatile price of protein ingredients is expected to have a negative impact on the development of the market. Owing to the imbalance in the supply-demand of grains, the prices of soybean continuously fluctuates. This ultimately increases the cost of production of protein ingredients resulting in manufacturers refraining from producing protein ingredients. The global protein ingredients market was 3,186.7 kilo tons in 2013 and is expected to reach 4,583.1 kilo tons by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2014 to 2020.
