India Casein Market to Reach US$ 150.1 Million by 2027, Propelled by the Increasing Demand for Protein-enriched Dietary Products

Published on Apr 11, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “India Casein Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the Indian casein market reached a value of US$ 102.1 Million in 2021. Casein refers to an amorphous, white, solid, tasteless, essential protein, which is found in mammalian milk. It constitutes three different polypeptide chains that are held together by noncovalent interactions.It can be naturally sourced from casein curdles after the fermentation of milk sugar or through precipitation of acid casein by the addition of dilute hydrochloric or sulfuric acid. It is a rich source of carbohydrates, minerals, amino acids, calcium and phosphorous. These nutrients assist in ensuring muscle recovery, enhancing digestion, fueling metabolic rate, lowering blood pressure, and improving body strength. On account of these properties, it is extensively used as a key ingredient in dietary supplements, pharmaceutical products, food additives, confectioneries, and various milk products. Apart from this, casein is opaque and exhibits water-soluble properties, on account of which it is further employed in inks, oil paints, and glues

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.

India Casein Market Trends:

One of the major factors driving the India casein market growth is the increasing demand for concentrated functional and protein-enriched food products due to rising health consciousness and awareness amongst the consumers. Casein assists in increasing muscle mass, burning fat, strengthening bones, eliminating cravings, and regulating healthy body weight, due to which it is widely being incorporated in various dietary supplements. In line with this, the extensive utilization of several casein-based products, including yogurt, butter, and cheese for the production of various baked goods, such as pudding frosting, whipped toppings and cheesecakes are further supporting the market growth. Additionally, the widespread adoption of casein across various industrial verticals for manufacturing skin care and cosmetics products, shoe polishes, insecticide sprays, paper coatings, on account of its emulsifying and binding properties, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the implementation of numerous dairy development schemes, such as the National Project for Cattle and Buffalo Breeding (NPCBB) by the Government of India (GoI) to promote the production of mammalian milk for casein extraction purposes, is contributing to the market growth. Other factors, such as strategic collaborations amongst key players and extensive fundings in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce premium casein-infused food products, are creating a positive outlook for the market. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 150.1 Million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 5.80% during 2022-2027.
