Global protein hydrolysates market is likely to exhibit a promising growth curve as far as the short-term outlook is considered. The report will uncover the insights into how the market growth will unfold in the next few years.

Increasing Application Across Segments Like Infant Formula, and Sports Nutrition Provides an Impetus to Protein Hydrolysates Market

The key growth drivers for the global protein hydrolysates market include factors like the expanding demand in the sports industry for both plant-based, and animal-based protein hydrolysates. The product is likely to see rising demand as a nutraceutical, a dietary supplement, and for newborn nourishment. Aside from that, the product is frequently used in sports medicine since it improves amino acid absorption compared to intact proteins, resulting in optimal nutrient delivery to the muscles. Additionally, the product's application in infant formula to improve amino acid absorption and provide maximum protein nutrient value is anticipated to affect market growth positively.

Another important factor fueling growth in the global protein hydrolysates market is consumers' growing health consciousness, which encourages them to consume nutrient-dense foods. The demand for protein hydrolysates in weight-management products is rising due to advantages like easy digestibility. Whey protein hydrolysates are the protein hydrolysates that are most frequently used to manage weight. According to estimates, the market in Asia Pacific region will grow the fastest overall during the forecast period, both in terms of value and volume. Demand from end-user sectors such as animal feed, clinical nutrition, and newborn nutrition is anticipated to be driven by growth in population and per capita income in China, and India, combined with a growing trend toward protein hydrolysate products. However, obstacles, including costly R&D expenses and onerous government regulations, have limited this market's global expansion. In addition, low popularity in developing nations brought on by high production costs is anticipated to restrain market expansion.

Protein Hydrolysates Market: COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 epidemic has severely damaged the world market for protein hydrolysate. Supply networks were disrupted due to the worldwide lockdowns and business closures, while the impact on people's finances reduced demand for protein ingredients. Since the supply amount significantly outweighed the global demand, this had an immediate impact on the protein hydrolysates market. The preference for Protein concentrates, powders, supplements, and hydrolysates have increased in the latter stages of the pandemic, however, as a result of an increase in sedentary work. Additionally, the World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended adopting healthy diet programs to combat the effects of COVID-19 disease on the human body. It has been embraced in the healthcare and athletic sectors as a rich source of BCAAs, hydrolyzed proteins, and essential amino acids because they are quickly absorbed and provide more energy than their conventional counterparts.

Widespread Use of Protein Supplements in Sports and Bodybuilding Products Augurs Well for Protein Hydrolysates Market

Since proteins aid in forming new cells and repairing damaged body parts, they are frequently seen as essential for the growth and development of muscle cells. As a result, people concerned about their health have shown rising interest in protein components over time. To build their physique, consumers and fitness enthusiasts highly demand protein ingredients like protein hydrolysates. Because they include a sufficient amount of highly purified proteins, milk protein hydrolysates like casein and whey are well known for promoting muscle growth and development. Compared to other protein ingredients, whey, and casein protein hydrolysates have a high rate of solubility, allowing them to be used in nutritional and supplement powders containing all nine essential amino acids. Casein-derived protein hydrolysates are the ideal evening supplements because, in contrast to other nutraceutical protein supplements, they gradually release amino acids into the body. The protein hydrolysates market will thus continue to grow during the forecast period.

Growing Application for Infant Formula Making Will Propel Protein Hydrolysates Market Revenue

Worldwide attention is being given to a crucial component of infant formula. As an alternative to mother's milk, these formulas are prescribed to infants, and toddlers with genetic conditions like lactose intolerance. But nearly 30% of infants fed traditional infant formula experience severe gastrointestinal discomforts like colic, and constipation. Since protein hydrolysates play a significant role in infant nutritional products without causing gastrointestinal problems, these products are finding lucrative applications for protein hydrolysates in the rapidly expanding health and wellness sector. As a result, there is a growing demand for protein hydrolysates in infant formula, clinical nutrition, and other similar products. In turn, this presents a sizable opportunity for producers of protein hydrolysates to tap into the untapped protein hydrolysates markets.

Unpleasant Flavor Remains a Long-term Challenge Facing Protein Hydrolysates Market

Different amino acids and peptides, including hydrophobic peptides, found in protein hydrolysates give protein supplements a bitter taste and may put off consumers. The food's nutritional value and protein content will be reduced due to the addition of artificial sugars, sugar alcohols, and flavoring chemicals to reduce bitterness. It is anticipated that this will significantly slow down the protein hydrolysates market growth. An option for de-bittering procedures is to utilize chromatographic techniques, alcohol precipitation extraction, or activated carbon; however, doing so will raise the cost of producing hydrolysates.

Another factor anticipated to limit revenue growth of the protein hydrolysates market is the recent emergence of innovative protein supplement substitutes known as Ingredient Optimized (IO) proteins. Different IO protein variants, including ioWhey Protein, collagen, ioBCAA, and ioPea, are superior to their natural equivalents and to be readily absorbed by the body. IOWhey has a bioavailability that is 50% higher than WPH, according to clinical research. These substitutes also don't have a bitter aftertaste, making them perfect for post-workout meals.

Mik Segment to Dominate Protein Hydrolysates Market for a Host of Health Benefits

Based on source, the global protein hydrolysates market is divided into milk, plant, animal, and marine segments. From 2022 to 2030, a sizable portion of projected revenue will come from the milk segment. Casein and whey proteins, found in milk, are used to make protein hydrolysates and active peptides. Increased lymphocyte proliferation, cytokine regulation, and antibody production are all benefits of hydrolysates. Hydrolyzed milk proteins, such as -lactoglobulin, a major allergen in milk-consuming infants, have been shown to have reduced antigenicity. The healthcare industry is utilizing milk protein hydrolysates more frequently, which is anticipated to lead to revenue growth over the coming years. Medical benefits include improved gastrointestinal tract mucosal immunity, increased interferons, and natural killer cell activity.

Plant-based Hydrolysates Popular in Protein Hydrolysates Market, New Compositional Research and Updated High-tech Processes Complement

Companies aim their products at consumers by developing novel items with organoleptic characteristics close to real meat using modified technologies. A combination of a protein hydrolysate is used to make these ingredients to get the required flavor and taste. New compositional research and updated high-tech processes aid plant-based protein hydrolysate market expansion. A few elements driving the demand are clean eating, environmental concerns, and better treatment of animals. A stock-up on products created from tried-and-true ingredients like peas, rice, hemp, and soy has recently acquired relevance as most athletes, and active consumers look for alternatives while reducing their need for animal protein. Additionally, more recent, distinctive proteins-such as sacha inchi, quinoa, and water lentil-appear more frequently in protein blends. Still, their contribution to muscle growth is not particularly noticeable. In the United States, rice 23%, hemp 18%, pea proteins 13%, and other sources are behind soy protein as the most popular plant source, with 31% of the total protein hydrolysates market.

Asia Pacific Dominates Global Protein Hydrolysates Market Owing to Rising Consumer Affluence, and Falling Manufacturing Costs  

Due to rising consumer disposable income and declining manufacturing costs brought on by new technologies, the Asia Pacific protein hydrolysates market is anticipated to experience the quickest growth. Additionally, it is anticipated that the Asia Pacific region will experience market growth during the projection period due to its large consumer base and abundant raw materials. The one-child policy modification for a decade in 2016 is anticipated to result in considerable demand growth of more than 8% for the Chinese protein hydrolyzate industry. The demand for infant formula is predicted to rise due to this having a favorable effect on China's crude birth rate. The Chinese Ministry of Finance has implemented a new regulation requiring official approval of baby formula imports from foreign websites by 2018. Because of the increased demand from the feed sector, the size of the Brazilian protein hydrolyzate market is anticipated to increase significantly. Brazil, the third-largest livestock feed producer worldwide, supplies most of the animal feed produced in South America. The rise of the protein hydrolyzates industry is supported by one of the key foundations of Brazilian agriculture: livestock rearing.
