Global Fish Protein Hydrolysate Market to Grow at 4.9% During 2022-2027, Bolstered by Expansion of Aquaculture Industry

Published on Apr 13, 2021

According to the recent report by IMARC Group, titled “Fish Protein Hydrolysate Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global fish protein hydrolysate market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% during 2022-2027. Fish protein hydrolysate (FPH) is a bioactive product of fish protein that contains degraded amino acids and peptides. The protein hydrolyzation process involves the disintegration of proteins, which helps in the reconstruction of fish tissues into small parts and ultimately into amino acids and peptides. FPH can be formulated using various kinds of salt and freshwater fishes, such as salmon, tuna, anchovy, sardine, and crustaceans. It is a rich source of healthy fatty acids that aid in maintaining blood pressure and improving the overall cardiovascular health. FPH is used as a food binder, gelling agent, emulsifier, and nutritional supplement in the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and nutraceutical industries.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report. 

Global Fish Protein Hydrolysate Market Trends:

One of the key factors driving the global fish protein hydrolysate market is the widespread adoption of FPH as a cryoprotectant in aquaculture and animal feed to prevent the outbreak of infectious diseases. The addition of these compounds in feed products helps in reducing disease outbreaks and improving metabolic system against infections. Besides this, the extensive application of FPH in the pharmaceutical industry is contributing to the market growth. It is quickly absorbed by the body, which aids in muscle growth, reduces hypertension, and treats various gastrointestinal ailments. Moreover, the growing utilization of fish proteins in the preparation of various food products, such as sports nutrition, infant formulas, and protein supplements, is escalating the demand for FPH across the globe.
