$ 1499


The global protein ingredients market was worth US$ 31 Billion in 2017. The market is further projected to reach a value of US$ 43 Billion by 2023, exhibiting a CAGR of 6% during 2018-2023. Protein ingredients consist of amino acids which are required for maintaining the optimum protein level in the human body. These ingredients can be acquired from different sources, such as plants or animals, and help in repairing damaged cells. They also aid in regulating weight, improving physical strength, lowering muscle loss caused by aging, and mitigating the risk of chronic diseases. As a result, protein ingredients are widely used in the production of food and beverages, personal care products, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

Global Protein Ingredients Market Drivers/Constraints:

  • A surge in the cases of health-related issues has encouraged the consumers to opt for functional foods that contain high amounts of proteins and other vital nutrients. This is further supported by the availability of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free product variants, which cater to the individual requirements of the consumers.
  • The rising fitness trend among the health-conscious consumers coupled with the role of protein-rich foods in muscle building and weight management are stimulating the market growth.
  • With changing lifestyles, the preparation of conventional protein-rich products has become a difficult task. As protein ingredients can be prepared easily and consumed on-the-go, they are increasingly being used by the consumers.
  • The uncertainties regarding raw material prices along with stringent rules and regulations imposed by different authorities, such as the Food and Drug Administration in the US, are the major factors that can hamper the growth of the protein ingredients market.


Protein Ingredients Market Size

Breakup by Product Type:

Based on type, the market has been segmented into animal and plant proteins. Amongst these, animal proteins are the most popular product type, accounting for the majority of the global share.
